Le Papillon, La Cresse, France

A site on the ACSI discount scheme in France. Halfway up a mountain with spectacular views from every pitch. We phoned en route to this site to check availability of pitches as our caravan was going to have to do a bit of climbing and venture through some narrow roads to get there. The nearby...

La Sousta, Pont du Gard, France

A beautiful woodland site on the banks of the river L'Alzon. Part of the ACSI discount scheme.  Arrival at reception, booked in quickly, choose a pitch and let them know which one. A restaurant/takeaway is located next to reception while a shop selling fresh bread, espadrilles and basic food essentials is to the rear of... Continue Reading →

Van to SanRemo & No Go Monaco

The second invasion was realised after one climbed from my cleavage and waved at me, as if to say "You think this is bad, look over to... Continue Reading →

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 →

Two Tour Tuscany

The final eight mile approach to our next caravan campsite site is why we chose it, we are winding and zig-zagging our way up a big big hill with dozens of full-kit cyclists, they are panting with exhaustion we are holding our breaths in anticipation of each corner. The views are amazing both North and... Continue Reading →

Piazza People Watching 

 Day out on the bus from the caravan takes us to Firenze (Florence) 4 hrs of walking and lunch under our belts, our feet are in need of a rest. With the sun blazing down at over 30 degrees we seek the shade on some steps of a piazza. It seems we're not the... Continue Reading →
