A quiet parking spot at the Broceliande Gardens on gravel or grass. Used by buses as well. Services should be 6 euros but were out of order when we were there on 13th Sept. A few minutes from the main road and about 15 minutes from Rennes.

Gardens were expensive and a bit different, with attractions for children.

This is almost a small campsite withindividual marked spaces. Entry is by barrier with a credit card, but there is a gentleman on site to help.

Quite a lot of trees around but some sun. Lovely walks to the beach and around the area.

Saint Marc sur Mer, Pays de la Loire, France

A free aire with a 20 minute bus ride in to Saint Nazaire. A bit sloping and services are further down the one-way road which you need to visit first.

Lovely picnic area across the road and a coastal walk in both directions. Quiet at night. .

Lassay les Chateau, Pays de la Loire, France

On mixed parking and very puddly after recent rain and dark underneath the trees. Euro Relais with jeton for water which wasn't working when we were there.

Ecouche, Lower Normandy, France

This appears to be a very new aire and extremely well laid out. Gravel with grass surround. Water and dump point easily accessible even if not staying the night.

A short walk in to a pretty town with shops, restaurants etc.

A quiet farm aire within 30 minutes drive of Dieppe. Facilities are basic but adequate.

We received a warm welcome from the owners, although they did not speak English.

It is a 15 minute walk in to the nearest village with a few shops, bar and church.

Wildeshausen stellplatz, Lower Saxony, Germany

16 spaces, mostly on asphalt and quite large.

5 euros pn inc ehu. Water is 1 euro for 80 litres, dump and waste free. 10 minute walk in to town and supermarkets, restaurants etc. Very nice Greek restaurant just around the corner.

Quite popular so gets full quickly, but there are extra spaces outside on the grass car park (no hook-ups) which seem to be acceptable.

Camperplaats Achter op Erica, Erica, Drenthe, Netherlands

About 20 spaces, some on gravel, most on grass . No facs, only water tap and dump point.

A bit noisy at times as right at a roundabout, but quiet at night. 1.5km in to village and supermarket, bus every hour, or the other way to Emmen 8km.

Haven Urk, Flevoland, Netherlands

20 spaces roped off at one end of the huge car park. Overflow campers park in the car spaces which seems to be acceptable.

The harbourmaster comes round to collect the money and give you codes for all the doors. Pitches are rather close to each other and some slope sideways.

There is a very nice restaurant above the harbourmaster’s office and washing machine/dryer below. Urk is a fascinating town, well worth looking around. You could spend hours just sitting watching all the boat coming and going in the marina. .

Sandstorm Wohnmobilplatz Wittenbeck, Mecklenburg  Vorpommern, Germany

60 spaces under trees, close together nearer to the toilet (50c) and shower cabin with power 18 euros pn. Another 50 spaces further back up the road on what used to be a car park. Lots more room, but no power points 15 euros pn.

Handy for Molli train which stops every hour either to Bad Doberan or Kuhlungsborn. A tiny bit of pebbly beach, a café/restaurant with good food.

We found it to be very windy and got busy at the weekend.

  2.   Germany, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern

Large uneven gravel, 75 spaces nearly all taken by lunchtime. Not very inspiring but suitable for the city itself which is really interesting (10 minute walk)

Sanitary building with 2 toilets and showers each for ladies and gents, but not very clean. No wifi available.

Lots of very large motorhomes staying a long time.

  2.   Germany, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern

This is a large popular site, 60 places but only 3 free when we arrived on Sat 1.00pm. You have to make sure there is a pitch first, then pay at the machine including your ehu and water in order to get a gate key, 5 euro deposit for the key.

Some pitches are a decent size, others quite small. Not all electric bollards were working. There is a swimming pool next door where you can use the shower and toilet whilst it is open.

Plenty of walks around the lake or in to the town with supermarkets and restaurants.

Jachthaven Middenmeer, Noord-Holland, Netherlands

A pretty little camperplaats at the marina with 12 spaces all with power points.

Front pitches are somewhat sloping so ramps are needed, but the rear ones under the trees are flatter. There are 2 toilets, 2 showers each for ladies and gents plus a disabled wet room and washing machine/dryer all housed in one building. Payment is made to the harbourmaster in his office between 7 and 8pm.

A 5 minute walk in to the village with a supermarket and a couple of eating places. 3 way-marked walk/cycle paths around the area of various lengths. Wi-fi was fine, but can’t comment on tv reception as we don’t have a tv.

Het Knooppunt Bed & Breakfast, Oudeweg 47 Nuis, Netherlands

A gem of a site, just like a 5 van-site at home with a couple of toilets and showers, wash-up sink etc.

Very flat large pitches on grass with power points. Chris, the owner, came out to greet us and show us to a pitch.

A 10 minute walk across the road is a truck-stop restaurant with very good food and quite reasonable. Nearest shops etc. are about 3.5 km away in Marum, but there is a cycle path all the way. Wi-fi free and OK, but can’t comment on tv reception as we don’t have one. Keep a sharp eye out for the little yellow sign post, easy to miss!

Camperplaats Haamstede, Giethoorn, Netherlands

This is a lovely camperplaats run by motorhome owners, ideally placed for visiting Giethoorn, otherwise known as Little Venice. It is well sign-posted and easy to find.

The pitches are of a decent size although the gravel bit to park on is a bit skinny. We had to step out of our door straight on to the grass, which unfortunately was quite muddy due to the amount of rain in recent days. There were some very large puddles to negotiate. There are water taps between a few pitches for you to fill small containers, but the main water and dump point is on the exit road and needs a coin.

We found Giethoorn to be picturesque if a little 'touristy' and certainly worth a visit.

Camperpark Kinderdijk, Alblasserdam, Netherlands

This is an excellent base for visiting the Kinderdijk windmills, which you can reach by water bus or bus.

There is a shopping mall and many restaurants within walking distance. All the facilities are more than adequate, including the baker van at 8.30 each morning. Showers are 50c, buy token from reception.

Camperlocatie Emmaboulevard, Hoek van Holland, Netherlands

We headed for this camperplaats as we came off the ferry at 17.45 only to find all 5 motorhome spaces taken. However, there were plenty of normal car parking spaces further along the boulevard and a couple of other motorhomes parked there. So we joined them, at only 5.70m long we were able to reverse in and have our slight rear overhang over the pavement which was very wide. We were almost level so did not need to put levelling ramps out.

It was really interesting watching all the ships passing and we had a pleasant walk along the boulevard and found quite a few eateries nearby. We spent a quiet untroubled night and would certainly use this place again. One of the best freebies we have stayed on, obviously no facilities though, so you need to be prepared.
