    Hallo Tony, we are now at Florac on the Tarn. The weather today is bright and sunny but with a fair breeze. Tomorrow we are moving down to Avignon and according to the weather forecast it will be sunny and warm and getting hotter over the weekend hopefully the wet weather is now over and done with.

        We're now at Chatelaillon-Plage just south of St Rochelle we had to abandon idea of going to Albi as too hot. We leave here on Wednesday and make our way to St Aubin in Normandy for a few days. We're due on the train on Wednesday 4th July and we're planning on overnighting at Saints Claire on the Monday so thanks for the information we may need a plan B. France seems much more crowded than usual this year, we've had to take the precaution of booking at a couple of our favourite sites, never had to do that before.

            I would be interested to know what the advantage of staying on a camp site in France is, over just parking up for the night somewhere? I have seen camp sights of course but never used one.

              If you have a big van with shower and toilet facilities you can get away with just overnighting almost anywhere. Although we have a flushing loo in the R25, showering is a must for us, so campsites are our way to go.

                If further down south I would always use a campsite as security is paramount, parking overnight on a service area is a definite no-no although we did stop at 3 in the morning at Les Deux Caps last week amongst about 10 others vans due to tiredness, but only for a nap. Even then we had a dodgy looking van come in and park about 4 feet from us!! Time to move on!!

                  Why we prefer to use sites. As Tony says a shower every morning is a must for us as well and although we have a shower in the van it is quite small and then you have the faff of drying it out afterwards doesn't really compare with popping down to the shower block having a leisurely shower and just a quick whipe over with the mop provided. The sites we have used in France have all been ACSI sites and have restaurants and swimming pools, we seldom use the swimming pools but often use the restaurants and have found them to be of good quality with a good choice of meals. Staying on site means after a good meal it's a short stroll back to the camper. We have no worries about emptying toilets or finding water or getting rid of waste water the facilities are all on site.
                  We also like to lie in some mornings and sit outside to have breakfast. We sometimes meet some interesting people from all over the world.
                  All that for about 20 euros a night , what's not to like? I suppose it comes down to each to his own.
