    Thanks for the heads up. As that's peak holiday time, we're reasonably confident we'll be ok, if we arrive tomorrow.
    We're parked on a a lovely, empty aire, 84 miles away, at Jans, just off th N137, north of Nantes . Beautiful village, but deserted.
    Still, we're sat outside reading by the security lights.

    Hi Paul, hope you are both well and enjoying your trip down. The Aire you are on certainly looks a nice place especially the town church. Been having a quick look on Puy de Fuy ,looks like a great place to see, hope you manage to get tickets . We are out tonight in Fuzeta for a night with Domingos and friends just having a cheeky G&T right now Anyway, looking forward to catching up soon, hope you brung your thermals with you as it topped 37 deg. here this afternoon !!

    We're sat outside, reading by the security lights, have to wave my arms, every 15 minutes,to activate the PIR . switch. Still in shorts and tee shirts.
    Don't know when we'll get back.. 37 degrees might be a little too warm for us.
    Enjoy yourselves in Fuzeta.

    Sounds Dreadful!
    Britons were wild camping long before campsites, it's a basic human right.

    We feel so sorry for you, .
    .

    It's totally different today. We've been here 9 hours and have seen 4 huge spectaculars.... The Knights of the Round Table, The Vikings, The Secret of the Lance and The Three Musketeers.. Every one a gob smacking extravaganza. Plus a number of little sideshows, to fill in between. Most of the dialogue was in O- level French. The staff were enthusiastic and helpful.

    We did the motorhomers thing of taking drinks and snacks in and only bought 2 coffees and an excellent large loaf.
    We're resting in the van and eating properly.
    Back on duty, for another musical sideshow and then the fireworks spectacular at 9.30.
    Then, s0d the expense, we're going to stop overnight on the 9€ aire.

    Probably won't stir until after lunch.
    It's much better than Kynren because the shows are in hour interludes, rather than the intensive 90 minutes binge.
    Cant wait for this evening.

    Just coming round.. We've been unable to talk about anything else,today.
    The finale was just too.magnificent to describe here.
    We've only driven 60 miles to the aire at Vasles, near Poitiers... What a charming place!
    All facilities, quiet and roomy. A short walk to the village centre. Moules and Frites to die for, washed down with Pelforth brown ale.
    I might have to change my mind about France.
    Gotta be near Bordeaux tomorrow.

    Our pleasure, Chris.
    We didn't realise that you didn't know about this aire. It's on other websites, Stampercops and Nark4pite..Allegedly.
    5 stars from us.

    Discussing Puy du Fou with our grandsons, who spent a weekend there, last year, We did in 12 hours what they did in 2 days. We did the same shows in exactly the same order.
    45 minutes on the phone and still as fresh in their minds as ours.
    .

    When we told them about overhearing a Brit lady on the phone, trying to describe the place.. She kept on calling it ," Foo wee de poo, "... The lads were most impressed.
    So that's what we'll call it from now on.
    It's not where you live... It's HOW you live..
