We are travelling south down the A16 in France and will be looking for a place to stop about 2 hours from the tunnel for the night as we arrive at 10.00pm. We intend then to travel on and visit Mt St michell. does any one know of a supermarket along the way we can fill out motorhome with food for the rest of our expedition.

The both of us will be travelling in convoy but my brother has a large unit so we need plenty of room to park.

Love the site

We will be stopping at the aire at Saint Valery Sur Somme (Dept 80) which a few mile off the A16, but worth the detour,on our way to Brittany on the1st June.
We always turn off the A16 at Junction 28 (when it becomes a toll road).
We very rarely use motorways anyway ,as you do not see the real France if you do.
I seem to remember there is also a supermarket there. Also this is a large site (see picture)

Check out aires on www.campingcar-infos.com (in French but easy to use.)
Have a good trip.

You will be travelling at night so you might prefer to stay on the A16 for the first part of your journey even though a toll road to the A28 interchange. For the €9.80, Class 2 or €13.60, Class 3 it may seem worth it on reflection.
There is an aire (Baie de Somme) on the A16 about 5 miles S of J24 where you will be about 60 miles S of the tunnel.

Note that the last aire on the A28 and 7 or 8 miles N of Rouen is Quincampoix.
It will be a few miles before you can stop comfortably again!

Paul, I'm not sure which type of aire you refer to but the answer is yes in both cases although if a non autoroute aire it may be full at that time in a morning.

Unlike the motorway service areas in the UK the French are very happy for you to use the aires for a sleep.
