French Aires with Electricity

According to the new edition of All the Aires both have electricity available but whether or not it will be working or enough sockets to get hooked up when you get there is quite another matter!

 

 

Thanks for that, Mailleraye had an electricity point at the dump, you know the usual arrangement x euro's for an hour of electricity. What I'm asking is are there elect points now at each pitch. When we last stopped there they were digging along the aire and laying cables, which could have been for lighting and/or elect points.

 

Rugle had a couple of hook up points by the pitches.

suggests that nothing has changed regarding provision of 230V electricity at the 'aire' (ie. there's a 230V outlet on the service-pedestal that - in this instance - requires a €3 jeton to activate). There doesn't seem to be anything elsewhere on-line to contradict this.

 

On-line information suggests that 230V power MAY no longer be available at Rugles

If it's important for you, you could always contact the Mairie.

Thanks for the info Derek, not exactly brilliant websites are they? They look to me like the type of web site thats possibly not kept up to date.

 

To me this query is when you need a reply from someone who has recently been there.....Where's Robert and Jean when you need them!

There are no electric hook-ups on the pitches at La Mailleray-sur-Seine; the cable laying was for new lighting which is now in position. Charge is 5€/night but no carge November to March.

We have not been to Rugles this year but our latest info was that the free hook-ups there were in operation just prior to Christmas.

An aire in the Seine Maritime where would feel confident of hook-ups would be Le Treport. Were there endNov/early Dec and all indications are it remains open all year. It is now on credit card barrier opening and costs 9.30€/night all in. Hook-ups are 16 amp; free wi-fi now available at torist office.

Down coast the "Marmite" aire at Honfleur is another good bet. We were there end Nov and all operating then, despite much of aire overtaken by caravans from the Christmas Fete. Charge is 10€/night all in but note not all hook-up points work and now limited to 5 amps. Free wi-fi in town at Relias de Cyclist cafe.

Moving south from Rugles then still a good chance that power might still be on at La-Suze-Sur-Sarth (dept 72). When we called towards end November all services inc pwer were not available from born on river side but the old 2pin French connections on the side of the hut in the rear section of aire were working. Suspect left on as contractors working on river banks were using one for their hut; looks a big job so think will still be there. Note, power here is limited (5 amps?) and overloading trips all the hook-ups, but although box looks locked it is not and just needs a good pull and then can re-set trip.

Hope this helps; if need inof on aires in other regions that might have hook-ups (not just the silly 20 mins at bornne) then let us know

As already been said. No it doesnt.

 

You probably all know this but to anyone reading the Aires book for the first time it can be misleading when in the symbols bit it denotes that an Aire has Electricity. As mentioned its nearly always the one on the Borne which nobody ever uses as its only an hour and in the wrong place.

 

The thing to look out for is when it says for example 4 unmetered electric points.

 

There are still loads with EHU and they are often free. You tend to find them in out of the way one horse villages which is perfect for me as I like being somewhere everyone else isnt.

If guaranteed ehu is that important have you considered using a proper camp site?

 

I have thought about that, however I'm looking for a nighthalt near to Rouen/Pont de L'arche and the CC Europe 1 book has 3 sites marked as open all year..... they appear to be closed until the spring.

 

I'm certainly not looking for aires with free electricity, in fact I prefer it when there is a charge. However if it is free then thats also fine, as is a "proper" site.

 

Thanks for your comment. I'm aware of the aires around Rouen...well I think I'm, but it can be flipping cold that far north.
