We are planning our first trip to france june 12th dover to calais and on to le touquet then who knows

Two sites I'd recommend very strongly:

For Mont St Michel:

Peaceful pleasant site and charming village in Normandy:

The whole of the Somme estuary is lovely. I'd definately recommend Amiens too (cathedral, hortillonages etc) - not far inland- and this campsite:

http://www.parcdescygnes.com/

I envy you, going for the first time, you'll love it. It is the most perfect country for motorhome holidays

Enjoy !

Hi Colin,
You do not say if you have children or not.
We have visited Normandy and brittany for many years and are still drawn to the area. Follow the coast road. The war time beaches and Bayeaux tapestry. If you have youngsters the site Camping de la plage at la trinite sur mer is practically on the beach no roads to cross.
loads to see in the Morbihan region towns like Auray Vannes etc. Gosh we could go on for hours.
Take it steady enjoy youself and you will probably wish you did it earlier.
Poor pound euro rate will make it a bit more expensive.

You can park free underneath the viaduct in the port of Dinan on the river Rance. There are no facilities but public loos are nearby. The port and old town are wonderful. There is also a good Aire at St. Jacut de la mer on the north coast of Brittany just west of Dinard. This is a beautiful tranquil spot close to beaches but very popular so get there early.

No kids thats it then the worlds your lobster.
Plenty of aires and sites along coast.
Most French hols are all of august. I do not think they will be a problem anyway as they have never forgiven us for keeping the germans out.

From about the 12th onwards we will be making our way up the coast from the Vendee region into Brittany and exploring whatever we see. We haven't been to the wetsern tip, like Brest and Quimper so will certianly go there. using municipals and ACSI's.

Be nice to see you on our travels, I am going to print out the MHF Badge for the first time after all these years.

T4 VW two berth camper with pop up roof. That's us, probably have an 'odd' flag flying too.
