Discover France in 50 short ( up to 3 days) trips through the regions on this site:
http://www.french-itinerary.com/
It looks good, and could be very well combined with 'aires' and 'France Passion'. Also downloadable in PDF and ready to print it out. And the English version is quit readable ;)

Voilà :p, like they say in Flanders: ... 'en leven als God in Frankrijk' (no translation needed I guess :confused:). Some of these parts I've done the past years (before I knew of this site) and it seems OK. I think this is very well done by the 'frogs' :)

Thanks for the link Belgian , looks good.
I'm leaving Greece at the end of the month,
catching the ferry to Venice then up through
the Rhone valley back to Blighted Blighty.
That website will be mighty handy for a few
more 3 day excursions before I get back for
my annual summer soaking.
Another sunny day in the mid 60s down here,
ya mas. (cheers)

Or as they say in Spanish, "Plenty of time to rest when you are up in the graveyard". Or as young "intalektuals" (irony,gerrit!) in the UK say, "Yea,but no but,innit,yea well good,em,duh,I'll 'av 9 pints of John Smiths and then go and shred me clutch and tyres,"doughnutting" near these campervaning "wrinklies" wot should get ASBOs for annoying me n me crew.They need a good happy slapping everytime they mention the war,and how great the 60s were,is all.Yea.

I caught my 77 year old Dad tapping the windows of the local bus shelter with his walking stick..Windows were plastic..Apparently he wants an ASBO I think he thinks it is a poormans MBE or something.

I think ASBO's are regarded as badges-of-office by those they're intended to bring under control.

Sorry for sliding, 'off-topic'. Thanks for the excellent link. Question. If the Dutch are 'cloggies', (I hate that) the French are , as-you-say, 'Frenchies'. How do we describe Belgians ? (without offending) they do make, 'exceedingly good beers'.

When we take the ferry, (post-summer-holidays) we'll be touring virgins regarding the great continent of europe. I speak a little German, she speaks a little French, we get-by with the Dutch and mostly the Belgians because they speak English so nicely. How are we going to cope in France ? and surely we're not going to cope in Spain because both nations reciprocate the British language-lazy-ness.

Sorry too slipping off topic, I found myself with the Dutch I came in contact with ( at one stage I had 12 dutch families in my care) to Firstly love the British, and you are spot on re their command of English IMHO they are the linguists of Europe. I found myself often taking a sly peek at the number plate too see if they were English. I speak a bit of French practically no German. But what you will find 99.9 percent of the time is that if you TRY and dont turn up the volume out of frustration, it is amazing the depth of discussion you can have.

To me one of the joys of travelling.

Btw the Dutch seem to love UK based detective programmes like Morse etc... You see ;)....Part of the reason they are so good at English their tv is subtitled to dutch so they are exposed to English at an early age.

Also If you have a dutchman from the south that speaks Lindberg ? and one from the North they speak Fresian....and do not understand each other...guess what they speak English !!

We never plan anything, we just catch the ferry and go where the fancy takes us:D
Maybe we should plan a little and know where we are heading to:D or maybe not:eek::D;)
This is what motorhoming is all about;)

P.S. I forgot how to post a new thread.

Aires are French parking areas for motorhomes.
Don't confuse these with ordinary parking aires (lay bys):D

Thanks grath, appreciated.

Are they generally signed or how are they recognised?
(Apart from the obvious they're full of MHs)

Lots of signs about showing a m/H and dump facility. You can also buy a couple of books.
The french Aire guide and the one from Vicarious books:) or go motorhoming.
Do a little search and you will find these:)

the trouble with the "all the aires france" book is that there are lots of mistakes in it, some are basic spelling mistakes and others are the wrong gps coordinates, in fact one of the sites, according to gps, is 177 miles from where it should be
