    Heading here 1st night on ACSI card if it is not full.

    Hi Tony

    We have been to Le Brevedent and it was a lovely site, we had a pitch right at the side of the lake, fantastic . If you are into fishing they were catching some rather large looking carp.

    It was a few years ago but they used to do coach trips to Paris and also lovely takeaway meals, not the usual frites with everything, more sort of authentic French meals, you order them and they give you a time to collect but don't forget to take your plates.

    Have a great time. Look forward to seeing the review.

        That'd be good, I can see 40 Small Motorhomers waltzing down to the local bistro for a meal. That'd make the locals sit up and take notice.

          Here at Le Brevident Graham very nice site, weather could be a bit better though. Going south tomorrow to the Vendee region, supposed to be 27 degs there. A lot of attention for the R25, more guided tours!

              Bonjour Tony. Is there plenty of space for tourers then? I shall be over there in 3 weeks time, but I do not want to book. That is just over a week before the French schools break up (which is on 2 July). May you have plenty of

                The cheek of it, using our forum to advertise.

                Have a great time, keep us informed as you travel if you have time in between showing people round the van.

                  Mainly British Caravans at Le Brevedent and only about half a dozen pitches left, very nice site though

                  All

                  Moved on to La Chausee at Jullouville near Mont St Michel not impressed with this site only about a dozen pitches taken and weather iffy, really lonely there.
                  Moved on for better weather to the Vendee region and not disappointed fantastic site Domaine La Foret in St Julien Des Landes three big lakes 2 pools and a chateau, liked it so much we stayed 2 nights.
                  Now at a Castels site on the way back up at Granville,again not far from Mont St Michel, Chateau Lez Eaux.
                  Again a lucky choice superb site very friendly, will move up nearer to Calais for tomorrow nights stop, don't know where yet.
                  All the above are camping card ACSI sites at 15 euros a night out of season.
                  Trying to avoid supermarkets as we have French people all over the van when we stop! Blame Citroen!

                      Back home after one almighty thunderstorm on the way up through to Calais this morning... learnt a lot whilst away, like, don't ever leave the fridge door unclipped!

                        We did that once, never again!!! Its always something wet and/or smelly that falls out isn't it?? In our case, eggs.

                            ...yep, keep doing this too! How does the smell of French cheese travel so far, and last so long! (Very 'yummy' though!)

                            Can you imagine the crowds that would gather in France if we all went over in convoy?! When we had our C15 Hilo a little old man stood on a corner watching us, then he got quite excited, waving both arms and walking sticks! I did worry he would fall over, we did wave back with equal enthusiasm! Once again this year we had to do several 'guided tours'!
