Saint Nicolas, Brionne, France

This site is part of the ACSI discount scheme. A 6.30pm arrival and we are welcomed warmly. It is also, probably the hottest day of the year so far and we've been stuck in a car for eight hours. Would we like fresh bread in the morning? Go and find yourself a pitch. No need... Continue Reading →

Le Papillon, La Cresse, France

A site on the ACSI discount scheme in France. Halfway up a mountain with spectacular views from every pitch.

Barco Reale, Tuscany, Italy

Another ACSI site. Camping Barco Reale. We haven't booked. We've just turned up. Yes they've got space, jump on the buggy I'll show you a few pitches. Zipping round it feels like a rabbit warren.  We spent ages pulling the caravan up a mountain to get to the site, once there, time to choose a pitch,... Continue Reading →

Camping Erlebnis Zugspitze, Germany

Had we turned up in the rain I might not have been so thrilled.  Reception is a lovely building adorned with caravan items from quite expensive BBQs to blue and pink loo and oozing with leaflets for things to do in...
