Motorcaravan Sites Review
By BRIAN DAUNCEY
N.B. THIS SITE IS NO LONGER UPDATED - NEW ADDRESS IS www.bdauncey.site88.net
This is an informal review of European motorcaravan stop-overs and caravan sites that my wife and I've visited since buying a motorcaravan in 1999. All quoted prices are based on a motorcaravan + two adults. We tend to spend six weeks in the spring, six weeks in the autumn, consequently the main updates to this site follow these holidays. The latest inclusions are for the French Pyrenees in 2016.
We changed our motorcaravan from a Autocruise Valentine, (17 foot two-berth) to a Chausson Welcome 55 (another two-berth, 6 metres in length) in April 2006. References to ease of access relate to this type of vehicle - not necessarily the same for a larger vehicle!
I've included photos of the sites or closest towns where available, as well as some maps showing approximate locations - marks the spot.
