Sandra, I have used the Routiers frequently when I was trucking, but I have never seen a guide.
Saying that, I think there is one, for the up market not trucker Routier. Maybe they are included in it!
There were some excellent Routiers!

You could try

We used them extensively in the 70's (pre motorhome) with the paper guide and with great success!

I thought there was one, but wasn't sure if the trucker type would be included. I just had a quick look at a couple of good ones that I knew, and they were included!
Good find!

thanks for the info, if we ever eat out in france we always try anf find a trucker les routier, lots of fun usally all sat together, and lots of interest in where we are going, these guys drive for a living, but think 2 seniors just driving round europe is great. only problem up to now has been finding one, we pass a couple, and say next one we will stop at.......... which is normally after they have stopped serving...we have had some unbeleiveable food, local products, includind the wine or cider, BUT you do need to pull in somewhere and have a nice little sleep afterwards. now i only need to find a list for truckstops in spain, oh and italy etc.

even if you are in deepest france, and nobody speaks english at all, everybody is always so helpful, and conversations in 3 or 4 langues are fun.


why are european truck stops so civillised against english ones, and watching truckdrivers in europe drink wine with their meals is a bit weird the first time you see it, but then you realise that they are having a 1hour to 2 hour meal, and with lots of water, and all the truckstops have waiters, not like ours where you queue with a plate.
