Our plans changed overnight as we were heading for Strasbourg when we left Trier, but they now had forecast for blizzards so we’re heading south into France!
Our destination is Argeles-sur-mer in southern France but we’ll need a few stops on the way as it is still quite a distance. We have a Camping-Car Park card http://www.campingcarpark.comthat we purchased last year for 5 euros, which provides you with a network of aires (many used to be the municipal sites run by the local council equivalents) across France.
You can check online where the sites are, how many pitches are available and what facilities they provide so it takes any confusion out. We’ve paid an average of 11 euros per night and this includes electric, albeit it 6 amps but that has been move than adequate if you’re sensible.
We chose a campsite in the village of Seurre, about 40kms of Dijon that was extremely pleasant and next to the River Saône. New hard standings are being made and again everything was in working order. It took us nearly five hours to get here (261miles) so we’ve decided to stay a couple of nights.
Dean went and bought some fresh bread in the morning while I sorted the van out. We did venture out for a walk (when it snowed!) and to top up the essentials but had forgotten the shops closing times differ from the UK….we went back empty handed.
