    I followed a link recently to information by a funster about an aire in a pretty village near Rouen which he found when he turned off the main route to Rouen because of traffic jam. The village began with 'N' I think, but I was interrupted and didn't note it down. Was it you?

    I would be really grateful if you could tell me what it is, as we need to go that way in the summer.

    Many thanks

    Thanks Bill, I think it was Nonancourt. However, will have to think again because it's too far from Rouen for us. We need to meet up with a friend there... Any more recommendations.

    Is it "Pont de La Arch" - under the main bridge into town, by the river?

    Doesn't start with an "N" but I have stayed at the aire in Cleres many times. Smashing little village with a restaurant and bars etc. not too far to Rouen.

    Hi , Possibly not the one you were looking for but this one we use to avoid Rouen . we go via Yvetot. Go along the A28 till the E44 to Yvetot then down the D490 over the bridge and I think its 2nd turning on the right to the village. Nice riverside aire a couple of miles from the village but free, state's 12 but I think thats a bit over stated 8--10 more like, nice to watch boats etc opposite side of river to a town called Caudebec en caux .

    EMAIL: mairiestnicolas@wanadoo.fr
    TYPE OF AIRE: MUNICIPAL

    FACILITIES: WATER /GREY DRAIN/BLACK DRAIN/ ELECTRIC
    LOCATION: URBAN NO. OF SPACES: 12

    PRICES/ RATES: JETONS from MAIRIE or RESTAURANT
    PARKING: FREE/ 48HRS SERVICES: 2€ WATER or ELECTRIC

    DIRECTIONS: From YVETOT take D131 SOUTH across SEINE & turn RIGHT to ST NICOLAS. In village takeD40 NORTH to SEINE & AIRE (next to river).
    SITE DESCRIPTION The aire is in a very pleasant position on the banks of the river Seine, about 2kms north of the village of St Nicolas de Bliquetoit, next to a boat jetty & overlooking the Seine & the town of Caudebec-en-Caux on the opposite bank. There are 12 marked parking spaces on tarmac next to the river & surrounded by open farmland, no shade but a very quiet location. Euro-Relais service point with drainage grid.
    REVIEW:
    2008 Lovely spot with fine 180 degree views over the Seine & the Pont de Brotonne, absolutely tranquil but a bit remote with no facilities nearby. Picnic area here & cars appear to also use the spaces but it empties out in the evening. Clean borne in good working order. Ideal for a quiet night, footpaths along the river in either direction for a pleasant walk. St Nic is 5 mins drive away & has a small café/ restaurant that sells the jetons for the borne.
    2011 "An aire next to the Seine where 12 camping-cars can stay free on spaces separated by hedges." RECOMMENDED CAMPING-CAR MAGAZINE
