Aires in France

Hi All.

I am travelling down to the Spanish boarder this coming weekend in the MH and wondered if anyone can recommend a good place to stop in france about half way down ?

I thought around Clermont-Ferrand or similar ?

Many thanks

Not stopped near Clermont Ferrand myself but as a general rule the Aires close to transit routes can get very busy or even crammed full, so taking pot luck and arriving late hoping for a good night's sleep might be chancy.  Better to pick an Aire away from the transit route and in a more isolated position if you want to just drop in for a sleep stop en route; much less chance of it being full, especially at this time of year.

Thanks for that. I was actually going to pull away from the main transit route and find a more remote stop over

There is an aire at Clermont-Ferrand itself

though this one a bit further south may be preferable

If you 'zoom out' the map you’ll see that there are quite a few possibilities within reasonable striking distance of the autoroute (if that’s what you will be travelling on) and nearish to Clermont-Ferrand, and the user-comments relating to the aires may help you decide.

(You might get more feedback based on first-hand experience if your inquiry were on the “Motothome Matters” forum. Would you like me to move this thread there?)
