Sunflowers in FranceWe make no apology for featuring the other countries in Europe at least as much as we do the UK, simply because those countries are generally much more motorhome friendly!

Over many years we have built up a substantial listing of Aires and other stopovers entailing literally hundreds of nights motorhoming and many thousands of kilometres seeking them out. During these years we have spent a lot more time travelling and researching stopovers (Aires) and it always delights us just how perfect France is for motorhomes. We would really like to encourage other motorhomers to visit and experience this for themselves especially as the weather can be (and has been) so dire in the UK.

The thing I find when comparing the UK to France in motorhome travelling / parking terms is the way France are so much more accommodating to us, they obviously see the finance side to economies of regions by us being there, BUT they do not take the mick, they look after the traveller, there is always somewhere to park and it does'nt have to cost, so many free aire's up and down, even when it does its peanuts, the number of beaches to pull up on free is another great factor, over here in UK it always appears by and large there's a meter to feed ! I ventured in to Italy last year and that country too was so much superior to UK for appreciating the motorhome. so many places to park without the need for private campsites at great cost, unlike UK which appears to me to work opposite. you actually save the ferry cost and more by the the way we are looked after regarding overnight stops, 6 euro's to park on the harbour at a busy st valery-en-caux sums it all up to me. in my humble opinion of course lol.

Having spent June around the Loire area using aires we have 'caught the bug' as well. So much so that we are spending the whole of September in Brittany, so hopefully will find a few more nice aires to add to you list.
