Local campsites

There are plenty of places to stay close to our depot and many of our clients choose to spend their first and last nights at a local campsite or overnight halt. This makes perfect sense as on your first night you can familiarise yourself with the vehicle and how French campsites work while on your last night it can be useful to be close by to prepare the vehicle for handover the following morning. The following is a list of Campsites, Aire de service and France Passion sites all within a reasonable distance of our depot.
