John can I suggest the one I tried (the one and only on my trip) so I don't know if you are in this area - it is in the Champagne and Ardennes Region - and a place called Bligny - it was excellent, and if this is France Passion I want more, we had an excellent tour, a tasting, (I wondered why my glass was always full) and then he even took us up to the vines as well. Not sure if this is a normal sort of France Passion site, or indeed if everyone gets the same attention, perhaps it depends on the amount of time they have available when you drop in, or whether they like you, who knows, but the champagne was great and at €10.20 a bottle, really excellent value we thought.FERDINAND said:Hi.
Will of course still use Aires where possible plus we will be giving some France Passion sites a try.
Good for you. I may consider them then in the future. probably not much good to us this year as we go June 20th to july 21st.. We will just take pot luck in getting a site. Can always wild camp if we cant. We plan to look early in the day if we will want a site so hopefully will be ok.autostratus said:Some more information on Camping Cheques.
We had 19 Camping Cheques left which expired at the end of 2004. We had been unable to use them because of problems in autumn 2003 and spring 2004 and not enough time in autumn 2004.
It states in the site book, repeated in the 2005 version that Camping Cheques cannot be exchanged or reimbursed if stolen or unused.
I found out last month that this is not the case.
A month ago a campsite owner told me that they do reimburse for unused Cheques but he thought you had to apply before the end of February.
I've been talking to Camping Cheque UK who agreed that they do indeed reimburse for unused Cheques but there was the cut-off point and as it was now passed I was too late.
I had a bit of an arguement with them and pointed out that there was no way I could meet that deadline because I didn't know there was one!
They've been in touch with the French HQ and i am now told that they will reimburse for these Cheques but that I must deal directly with the French office.
Re-imbursement takes the form of an issue of Cheques to the number I already have minus one. If the current price is now higher than I paid then I must pay the difference.
This is a satisfactory outcome.
