Nice where you are but if you fancy a change there is a nice free lakeside aire that we stay at about 6 mile from you at L'ilse -sur -Tarn, short walk to medieval village ( nicest Spar shop ever), v short walk to good supermarket with washing machines and everything.
That does indeed look lovely Alan. It'll have to be another time tho - I drove down to Lautrec this morning. I've been before with hubby maybe 8 or 9yrs ago. Probably around the same time of year but it was cold, wet and the Café Plum where I currently am was just an empty forlorn space. Today it's vibrant n sunny - makes such a difference!
I'm still in awe of the interesting and varied places you come across Jean.
What I normally do is put a destination in roughly the right direction into Google maps (set with no motorway) - for instance, this morning I put in Narbonne. I think it said it would take 3-4hrs so I look at the route n concentrate on an area about a quarter of the way. I check out aires in that region, using mostly Park4Night, and go from there. I don't micromanage the route (something has to give when you're travelling solo) - just let TT do its thing.
I must say I've found some really lovely wee places this way. And it's all very interesting, including the drive. Today there were lots of bigger fields which had been fairly deeply ploughed. I thought the current farming thinking was that that released way too much carbon into the atmosphere.
Also I saw one of those machines that cuts the hay n spits it into a lorry driving in tandem. Only this time the machine was stationary in the farm yard n seemed to be spitting it into an open cow shed. That would fairly please the farm children if they didn't have to spread all the straw on the ground!
