    Aire Camping Sites

    These are municipal campsites, basic but clean.

    I Can vouch for the Aire's sites, they are brill, we have used the one just on the outskirts of Calais a number of times, having got the last ferry over, stopped the night, ready for a full days drive the following day

    Another fav North France stop is the Honfleur site, near the big bridge - Cracking site

    Normal advice about stopping overnight on motorway services in France is NEVER! Prone to break-in etc, my son will vouch for this having been broken into on such a stop-over. In many instances the police will advise you not to stop overnight in such places.

    If you have a smattering of French then look at the following for Aires...

    http://www.i-campingcar.fr/accueil.htm There is a downloadable pdf file on that site as well for use off-line but in French.

    https://www.campercontact.com/en/ is another good source with an app to use off-line. That site is available in English.

    There are a good number more websites available if you search, some just Aires, some Municipal campsites and some covering all types.

    The rule of thumb we find is to asses the place when you get there, you will get the 'feel' of it and be able to decide if you want to stay or not. We like the most remote of places, here is an example of a two plot site up in the hills. https://goo.gl/maps/hqdY9BYGpjk

    One beside a canal that's very popular http://goo.gl/maps/cv0PD

    And one in the Pyrenees http://g.co/maps/sktq9 again popular.

    Yes, got to keep your wits about you in the truck stops, I like the Aires myself, cheap as chips and safety in numbers as far as the Campers go.
    Cheers
