Thinking of calling in for a night on the way to the Dordogne. Any advise on a campsite (ACSI if possible) and what to see and do. Also believe prices for tabacco and alcohol are lower there ?

Just remember that on entering France, your vehicle will be searched thoroughly by douane and the fuzz and will apply "French" rules to quantity admissible, don't argue and quote Eu rules, Better to come home via Luxembourg.

Academia and government artificially select for particular traits, among which is a lack of life experience. This is why it's possible for a person to be exceptionally bright while failing to grasp something as rudimentary as supply and demand.

She, if you dont mind
There are a few campsites but never used them so cannot vouch. There are tons of wild spots too...just pick a mountain and drive up it.
Alcohol and tabac are very cheap. Limit is 1.5 litres of spirits per person, plus 6 bottles of wine ( but not fizz ..that is instead if spirits ). I assume its 200 cigarettes per person too , but we never bring them so please check.
If you have UK plates you are unlikely to be stopped ( unless you are under 35 and driving an old jalopy ). And there is no point arguing EU rules as we are not in the EU.
Enjoy.

If you want a campsite then one at Xixirella looks OK. Past La Massana , on the road to Pal. I have never stayed there but pass it often and it looks smart and well looked after. No clue about ACSI, sorry.

There is an excellent campsite in the main city, can't remember the name but on the right as you get to the city from the south. Prices are good and free showers and indoor pool. Walking distance from main shopping area.
Don't expect any bargains in Andorra, they are long gone.

Sorry ma'am, I hang my head in shame.

One of the strengths of the old site was that we could add our gender. Here, we can only add our christian name into the 'signature' box, as I do.

I have no idea what you pay in the UK these days but in Andorra we pay approx € 8 per ltre for Bombay saphire gin. Whiskey ( grants etc) €5 per litre.
Cigarettes, €3 for 20 . Diesel 85 cents.
Houses are not cheap, I agree, but they are not in the UK either....

So if the above is not a bargain compared to Uk then obviously I know nothing
