    Municipal Sites

    Shall be off shortly, for 2 weeks back to France.
    As the 1st half of the ACSI season is about to finish early July and campsite prices go sky high, we shall utilise this website to find some cheapo municipal sites.

    Thanks Tony

    That is just what I was looking for our trip to France in September - am also thinking of aires as well.

        You spend more time in France than you do in this country.

        Can you tell I'm jealous. Have a great time (again!).

            out of curiousity where are going in France? I have spent 8 weeks on holiday in the south but have come back early due to a break in. I go back in a few weeks for another 4 months holiday.
            Be careful of where you leave your unatended camper.

              It's just nice to not have all the restrictions on parking areas, as we have in this country.

              Will definitely be staying at one of our favourite sites on the way down whilst on ACSI, La Briquerrie at Honfleur.
              Made no fixed plans after this, we had intended to head down to the Dordogne area but the pull of Carnac in Brittany may be stronger. Weather the deciding factor, we'll just up anchor and move.
              As for leaving the van unattended, we only do that on established sites. Even that is not foolproof.
              Would'nt dream of leaving it unattended in somewhere like Marseille for any length of time.

              If you are in the area of Honfleur in September, ACSI site La Briquerrie (15 Euros a night)has good digital TV reception (if you like French TV!). Free Wi-fi all over site, and importantly an Intermarche right next door. Fresh stuff for the barby every night. About 20 mins walk down to town and harbour, Saturday morning market is buzzing.

                Arrived at La Briquerie (spelt it right this time) Sunday. Weather sweltering, moving on to Chaumont-Sur-Loire Tuesday, local Municipal for a couple of days. Possibly on to the Dordogne after that. Pics later.
                What has happened to VonUK?
                Are you back from France yet Yvonne, waiting to hear of your exploits.

                    About to start using Municipals as ACSI's are running out. Now on our last one on the way to Bordeaux, English run, La Bastide at St Foy La Grande.
                    Lousy weather driving down from the Loire to the Dordogne, but now thankfully back to 29 degs. Was going to chase the Tour but weather not good in that area.

                      Finally arrived back from France on Friday We decided not to do the long haul back from Brittany to Calais, and changed our ferry crossing to St Malo/Portsmouth, mid week was cheaper and gave us a good excuse to extend our stay for a few more days

                      Will post piccies soon, stayed at Les Druides for nearly a week, Tony, and ate most of the moules in Trinite sur Mer. The weather was not particularly good, so we stayed longer in Carnac than planned, and moved further NW when it improved.

                      We tried a couple of France Passion sites, both very pleasant, how about a section on FP sites as well as Municipals? (We did stay on a small Municipal site in St Just, about 1 1/2 hours away from Carnac. It was a little scruffy, but delightful all the same, with it's own megaliths, fantastic showers, and only €4 a night.) We drove from Camaret to St Malo pretty well in one go (stopped at a France Passion site about 20k from Dinan), all the way there were notices about the roads closing in 1 or 2 days time for the Tour de France, and loads of little boys on their bikes, in helmets and shorts obviously practising for the 2025 event. We saw bits of the Tour on the tv in the bar on the ferry.

                      The R25 got loads of attention, as did Di's Labrador, who had his photo taken by a particularly enthusiastic admirer in Dinan!

                        Currently on the Isle D'Oleron last 2 days south of La Rochelle. Mega storm last night, inevitable after high temperatures. Working our way up to the Loire, back home at weekend. People still wanting to know the ins and outs of the van, very friendly people.
                        Sitting in Maccas having brekky writing this.

                        Edit:
                        2 Dordogne pics

                            Our favourite area Von
                            Full of Castles and underground caves.

                            Example of caves in a boat at:
                            http://www.gouffre-de-padirac.com/

                            Found a cracking Municipal site on recommendation on the way up at Beaumont-Sur-Sarthe just north of Le Mans. Only 11.20 euros a night, was there on Bastille Day and joined in the village celebrations.
                            Back home today to lousy weather although the sun is now out!

                              The wild ones.

                              Just back from a great trip. Yes we found a site for 9 Euros for every thing and a fantastic swiming pool washed eveything we had and moved on by 8 the next morning. Early to bed early to rise makes a man !!""# Roger.
