July to August 2010 


We attended a few club rallies in England during the first part of 2010 and met some very nice people and saw some interesting vans.


Then on July the 20th we set off for Dover on the start of a 4 month trip. Took a late crossing to Calais with Sea France, then made our way to Carrefour supermarket at Cite Europ in Calais. To spend the night this is a free overnight stop provided by the supermarket, there are no facilities, but it is reasonably secure and brightly lit, and is normally well patronised it was quite busy on this night, but still had parking for dozens of motorhomes.

 Left early next morning for Cologne in Germany via Belgium and Holland arrived camping Berger midday see Germany 2009 for all details and photos stopped a few days, but weather not great so decided to move on.  Travelled on to Konisburg and spent night at camping am Konisberg Wolfenstein nice site with  good facilities. The next night stopped in Heidelburg same as last year. We are creatures of habit , and if we liked a site previously we will visit again if close by.

Crossed from Germany into France near the Swiss border spent a couple of nights at Village Center Les Lupins in Seppois-le-Bas  . A very nice campsite opposite the stork park and only 10.20 euros a night. Spar supermarket easy walking distance, and nice village.

Stayed a couple of nights then carried on south to the Drome area found a really nice camp site with good bar and free wifi, weather now a lot warmer and drier stayed a couple of nights highly reccomended.

        Kawan Village Les Quatre Saisons

Grâne, Rhône Alpes 

This small, terraced site, open all year, nestles in the hillsides of the lower Drôme valley close to the Vercors Mountains. With its 82 pitches (71 for touring units), it provides mainly overnight accommodation but it is worth a longer stay. The pitches are level and stony, of variable size, cut out of the hillside and reached by a one-way system on tarmac roads. All pitches have electricity (6A), some with water and drain. The modern main building houses reception on the top floor, with other facilities below, and provides commanding views across the valley towards Crest and the Vercors.
