    France used to be cheap. Now it is more or less the same cost as the UK (some things cheaper, others more expensive).

    There is better weather, less traffic, they're much more welcoming of motorhomes and tolerant of cyclists.

    After a whie you get used to travelling at 80kph and enjoy the extra time to view the scenery.

    Agree about you get used to 80kph. Was the same when I transported dangerous goods as a lower speed limit was mandatory and 90 kph was above but accepted by French plods
    You also get better mpg 😀

    We can certainly agree with those who prefer to travel alone..
    We're easily led astray by brown signs,or people we meet, en route.
    It wouldn't be fun, if we had to negotiate with our travelling companions at every deviation from the planned route.
    .
    Due to the lack of availability on ferries to North Spain , we were stuck with Portsmouth to Caen.
    We'd decided to miss France out, as it's getting complicated and expensive.
    .

    We hit the toll roads , spending the ferry fare savings. Only coming off to overnight.
    One supermarket stop, One fuel stop, a couple of tabac stops, for coffee, ( and Calvados, for the co-pilot ),and a flutter on the online lottery.
    After one laundrette stop, that was all the spending we did... Apart from a day at Puy Du Fou.... That was the Bonus.
    But , for us, France has probably had it's day...
    We'll spin a coin, when planning our return journey.
    It's not where you live... It's HOW you live..

    Just checked how much we have spent for 6 weeks to south of France. Including ferry, tunnel home , travel ins and everything , it is just under 1000. To be honest,it cost us this much 4 years ag. We have not eaten out, but have eaten well with wine with every meal and about 100 for Dr and medication fees included in the 1000 . Lidl is the key

    Off to the Dordogne for three weeks on Sunday.
    One extra Brit to clog up the place.
    Not sure I will be able to manage 500 for three weeks but will be well under 1000.

    We did stay put at Gruissan aire for three weeks at 9 euro per night but it would cost same in fuel for three weeks or six weeks
