A shorter drive today of 282 miles. After a short break for a sandwich at a service station it took us approximately five hours. As we were the only ones there on arrival we parked up at the service point to fill up with some water. While filling up we walked around to choose our pitch. The grass pitches had been cordoned off for obvious reasons and although the other pitches were gravel some had ruts in where previous occupants had sunk. Bear this in mind if you should choose to visit when it has been wet.
The aire, which is right next to the river Loir is built on the old municipal campsite and the service point looks fairly new. It has 27 motorhome pitches and has a security barrier in place. The electric is rated at 6amps.
We decided on the most firm one and after parking up and plugging into the electric we decided to go for a walk into the town centre which is only 200 meters away. We got a few provisions from a little supermarket and some cakes from the local bakery. No matter how big or small the town/village is , there is always a good bakery.
We had a bit of a wander around and then headed back to the van for our tea. Early evening we were joined by one other motorhome.
