Just about every post seems to suggest everyone is off to France.
Either ferry questions, where to stop, buying fuel, breakdowns or things not working before heading off.

France seems very quiet at the moment and all our B&B/Gite friends say booking are way down. I guess next weekend around the D-Day landings area it will be very busy and crowded as will the Le-Mans build up.

But are so may people shortly heading to or via France?

Hi Ray - I can only reflect your experience. We have been here since the beginning of May and certainly the Loire Valley, Charante, Dordogne and Lot valleys are very quiet. Not just the British, the Dutch and others seem in short supply!

To maintain the last years numbers, there will have to be a big influx in the next few weeks.

Hello Ray,

We are in Millau at the moment and it is mainly full of Dutch caravanners.
We have been in France for 4 weeks now and we have not seen many British people, that said we have not been before so cannot make a comparison.

We're still having fun though 8O

We will be invading in July!

May stay but may go on to Germany/Italy. No definite plans. Have joined France Passion so may find we are incapable of driving very far at all :lol: :lol:

France Touring

We're off Thursday afternoon - but only for 10 days unfortunately;no plans apart from probably going down to Ambroise for the weekend. We'll then be going over again in September for just over 2 weeks.

Can't wait!

Hi have just arrived back from a month in the Dordogne and apart from the 20 odd others on the C&CC rally we were on met one Dutch couple and about 6 Brits but never been in May before so can't compare but seemed almost deserted to us. But had a great time can't wait till September :)

We depart from Dover on June 28th to Calais, down to vire, probably onto Bordeaux, then possibly along towards Nice BUT the main thing is that we'll keep an eye on the weather and keep in front of any bad weather (hopefully none anywhere), as last year when we went towards Brest and Quiberon.

Any chance the pound may get to 1.20 or better????
