Back to the free Aire provided by the good village. Free services and a field for Cesar to run around. Spending a few days here and hopefully get a few jobs done on the van
|St Vincent Jalmoutiers:
After much searching for a working borne we have returned to an old favourite only to find the borne is not working and has been switched off for the winter.
|Aubeterre sur Dronne:
Not moved far from St Vincent. Shopping in Riberac then headed over to the Aire for the weekend. It’s a bit of a building site at the moment but at least the borne is working and if we are lucky there might be a football match in this weekend. Aubterre has been officially listed as “One of the most beautiful villages in France” since 1993. Aubeterre-sur-Dronne is also well known for its Church of Saint Jean, an underground, Monolithic Church.
Yup we decided to move out the way of storm Hugo and find somewhere that was open. I know we might be wimps but at least we are happy wimps that are able to charge everything up and dry off. Baker delivers each morning and fees are collected each evening.
Back to see if the Cardinal is in and for a poke around his garden. Once again the services have been turned off. Must still be winter, ah well. Town is a short walk through the Wall with supermarket and numerous shops. Market held on square twice a week. Services are located outside the imaginatively named Camping Le Cardinal à Richelieu
|Saint Philbert de Grand Lieu:
Our little spot of heaven until Friday. Trundlebus is having new tyres fitted on Thursday, hence the long lay over. Good job the services are working and there is a Super U next door for daily supplies.
After replenishing the larder in Plélan-le-Grand we have returned to an old favourite for Easter, we fully expected to Aire to be heaving but thankfully it’s nice and peaceful and for good measure it looks like there will be a football match tomorrow so double bonus
If it’s Monday we must be on our way north!!! Back to the nice free site in the edge of a peaceful village for the night.
Back to the delightful town and free Aire for more cidre. Been shopping in Caen today, interesting place and home of William of Normandy, do well worth the visit if only to rekindle the family ties. Jetons are available from the Tourist Office.
|Forges Les Eaux:
Only found this site by mistake as our intended destination turned out to be on a farm. For 8€ you get a fully serviced pitch, hook up and water. Supermarket is just down the road and has ample parking for Trundlebuses so bonus all round. Fees paid at campsite opposite.
