We're off to Royan on the 11th, just hoping the weather holds, which aire did you stay in, was it in Royan itself? I expect we'll stay bat La Palmyre which is not far away.

We used to live a few miles from Royan and I have seen people overnighting in the large car park by the ferry for the Medoc. Not at all sure of the legalities. There is certainly dedicated service area at Meschers sur Gironde a bit further down the coast - indeed most of the coastal villages offer some sort of overnighting facility. Mortagne sur Gironde, where we used to live, has overnighting by the port for 40 MH at €7 including electricity

How do you find these nice free places to camp? Do you have to turn right off the main roads and drive around until you find somewhere, or do you already know roughly where these spots are?

Just that we are travelling at the moment and we're struggling to find nice, quiet spots where we won't get moved on!

Cheers, Paul.

Invest in as book with aires in it, they are availlable from French newsagents, there are a few to choose from.
