    Brittany. First two weeks of April

    I assume most of Brittany will be fairly quiet and I can just rack up at the Free Aires in the evening and expect to find a spot?

    Not doing the really touristy spots anyway.

    I don't know if easter is the same in France but it is early this year. Which is why I booked the ferry on the 27th March. I am not sure if the French celebrate like the Spanish but you may find it has an impact on the aires. Also check that they are open then. I am know many close in the winter but I am not sure of the dates. To be sure of a space especially if you are chasing hookup.......which is surprisingly available in some aires, make sure you are there early afternoon. By about 6.00 all the spaces would normally be full.
    Having said that last year I stayed in a beautiful small aire ( enclosed by a hedge) and it normally accommodates 9 vans, one night there were 13!!! that's the French for you.

    Bon voyage et bon vacances.

    Not been that early but its always popular. Been there as late as the end of November and there were still plenty of vans. There are more Aires there than any other region and for good reason but you should be fine I would imagine especially if your not on the tourist trail.

    I would certainly expect most places to be quiet at that time of year, but a few popular very small coastal aires may be full if you turn up in the evening.
    There are some superb CRs, often little-used, alongside inland waterways such as the Canal de Nantes Brest and the Vilaine. Do you have any particular areas in mind?

    Starting off three days in Nantes and then going along the south coast, Crozon then inland Huelgoat way.
    Not bothering with north coast this time.

    Bon Repos

    Try Bon Repos near Gouarec , Saturday night to Sunday and experience a vibrant Sunday market with music from (English speaking) Dik at the cafe next to the canal. Plenty of local English ex pats to avoid though. Nice area to explore.

    There is a cracker just outside Gouarec, recently bypassed. It is on the way out on the left hand side going west( 48 13'58.12"N. 3 12'39.15"W) . If you like brocante you will also like "NOZ" shops. I bought three new 18" tall Poole pottery vases for less than 5 euros each. There is one at Guingamp and another good one at Pontivy. Watch it though. You will be tripping over ex pats.
