Britanny is where we are heading near end of August, haven't been there for about 10+years, been promising ourselves a trip back there since we retired 7 years ago. Looking forward to finding new places & re-visiting places we know. As usual we won't make any firm plans but knowing how easy & relaxed it is in France it's nice to know that you can find somewhere pleasant to stop.

Hi iveco nige,

I agree the west coast is great,but depends how far down you want to go,we went all the way to green Spain,Portugal, and back across by Andorra.It all depends on the time you have we took two months in September/October.We hope to get away towards the end of August and will just wander.Good Luck.

The aire at Ramatuelle on the med is one of our favourite spots. Just over 7 Euros a night, less than 50 yards to the famous Plage De Papillion beach and a short cycle ride into St Tropez. Brilliant. Provence is an AONB and well worth a visit of 4 or 5 days or so. The Gorge Du Verdon is unbelievable beauty spot. If you want a scenic trip spend 4 or 5 days driving the tourist route called the 'Route De La Grande Alpes' approximately 640km from Lake Geneva to Menton. This is a must trip if you haven't done it. Visit the tourist information shop at Thonon-Les-Bains (on shores of Lake Geneva) and ask for the map of the route. It's a brown route and well signposted. If you want islands off the West coast try Ile De Rea or Ile D'Oleron. Both of these islands are totally geared to cycling so don't forget your bikes. There is a tiny unspoilt mountain village high up in the Pyrenees called Dorres. Here you will find Roman Baths heated to 39 degrees coming from natural springs from the earths core. It costs less than 5 euros for a day in the baths which have sun loungers overlooking views extending miles into the distance. You can overnight for free in the spa car park where you will find many other MH's.

If you want to see the homes of the Troglodytes visit the Loire Valley and drive between Saumur and Montsoreau. Loire Valley house to rent (http://www.loirevalleyexperience.com/troglodyte%20dwellings.htm)

All of France is beautiful and I wouldn't worry too much about where you head because you will find peace and tranquillity everywhere.

We are off to France, evening of Friday 9th August. Just booked ferry:D
Plan to hit France and turn right and stop everwhere that looks interesting. Turn back about 10 days later.

Another great aire at this beautiful village of Fontaine-de-Vaucluse by the side of a trout stream. Stayed here for 4 nights. Enter the aire via the barrier and park up. If you stay a day, a week, a month it still only costs 3 euros when you leave. There's no tickets issued, you just put your 3 euros in the machine on exit to lift the barrier. This aire has toilets, water, and waste disposal. It was so hot when we were here that we swam in the river to cool off. Fontaine-de-Vaucluse - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fontaine-de-Vaucluse). There are some excellent restaurants in the village and plenty of good walks from the aire. Highly recommend a visit if you're passing by.

Nine days, and we are off as well, not that I'm counting you understand. Best thing is to turn right out of the tunnel/port and enjoy, stop where you want and take your time. :wave: Going down to the limousine area then over to the Atlantic coast for a few days then back to the French home till the end of August. :cheers: Have fun everyone :cheers:

this is a good stopover for Paris,camp across the road from the park/gardens of Versailles and you can walk through the park to the palace and centre of Versailles.Its also on the main metro line for the tourist spots of Paris (Arc de Triomphe,Eiffel tower).
Aires camping-cars (http://www.campingcar-infos.com/Francais/ccib.php?numero=303)
If its a campsite you want this is on the south side and reasonable and then get the R.E.R into Paris.
