Day 5,6,7,8,9


Recommended Posts


Day 5 moved on from the Chateau, reluctantly, and travelled to Site- Le Botemps (camping cheques pg235) which is between Lyon and Valence and 18km from Vienne. Pitches are a good size and flat. Has wifi at an extra charge and free tennis courts. Nice bar and restaurant, beer 2euro 80. We had pitch 282, lovely pitch near the bar, very green and surrounded by a hedge. Not able to get Satellite signal (Astra 2.8e) but lots of trees. Toilet block good and very clean. Only stayed 1 night, but definitely NOT a 1 nighter.


Day 6

Travelled to Arles - Site L' Arlesienne, ACSI No.2119, what a difference a day makes, now this is very much a 1 nighter if you must. Has a swimming pool and free Wi fi and that's about as good as it gets. Pitches are flat with very little grass. Toilet block very basic, take your own Loo rolls !!


Day 7,8,9.-

Arrived yesterday 20th May, at St Raphael, we tend only to travel around 150 miles each time, find that's enough.

The site is, 'Douce Quietude' (Camping cheque No 198) it's a Les Castels site, a 5* and worthy of it. Has an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, water slide, Bar, Restaurant, tennis court, weight training room, Laundrette and bike hire and lots more....

Pitches are a good size, slightly sloping with water on and water off. Wi fi available at an extra charge..

There is a cycle route into St Raphael, which we did today, staying here till Friday 23rd.

For 16 Euro a night(£14:95) it's amazing value....


Hope the next site in Antibes is as good, Le Risignol, ACSI 2232, any info welcome before we get there!?!

RogerC - 2014-05-22 1:08 PMThanks for posting your travels and site info.......very useful and interesting  I was thinking of going the 'camping cheques' way and so far your writings have confirmed this for me.

Thanks Roger, if you use the Silver Card Camping Cheque, you can top it up, via the website, as you go, if you run out on your travels, if you have the internet that is....
