After our stay in Arras and a 7am breakfast we assembled for our 8am departure. Again a bit of a rushed affair but that seems to be the norm ! Our first water stop was at the Thiepval Memorial. A moving tribute to just some of the war dead from the Great War. As we were leaving the weather changed and the rain came. Such a huge change to the 35 degrees that had sapped our ...
Woke (hungry) to find my phone in a small pool of condensation inside the inner tent. Seems to still work but the cover for the camera lens is covered in condensation. Spent a couple of hours this evening using the phone. Heated it up nicely so condensation gone. Might return when phone cools down. Naturally no breakfast. Bit disappointed that I couldn't get any lunch ...
... to options 2 (which was shut for 2 weeks) or option 3 which ended up non-existent because the address in my book was wrong. Now too far to go back to option 1. Decided just to camp somewhere. Question was do I go back to some restaurants I had passed and run the risk of still being in a built up area when darkness falls or press on and hope to get something. Went for the latter. Nothing to be had. Managed a further 5 miles but then no tea. Had no food as back-up. ...
... as low as 1.38). And then, as soon as I get on the motorway, the peage machine won't give me a ticket until I've spoken to someone in French via a phone-in-the-wall.
My Michelin route planner says the journey to Roye is 454 miles and will take over 7 hours plus time for stops. I'm reckoning on about 10 in total. The first sign says Paris is 617 kilometres from here - that's nearly 400 miles.
What can you say about 400 miles ...

Just returned from a weeks stay - great campsite - plenty for the kids to do The indoor swimming was good - not many changing rooms though so beware.
The onsite fast food was good, but the restaurant was only mediocre. We visited 2 other restaurants close by - Lion D'or in Vic Sur Aisne - small portions - somewhat overpriced, and Chez Michellene in Berny Riviere - Great food - excellent value would highly reccommend - from the outside it doesn't look much but the food is fab and at 6 Euros for steak & chips exceptionally good value.
Excellent, great value
Just come back from a week booked with Thomson and were really pleased. Accomodation was as desribed really roomy and very clean. Facilities on site were great for the kids who really loved it. Going back next year.
Stayed in this site with Haven Europe. Nice caravan with private plots. Pool Complex good with plenty of waterslides. One pool has a Sliding roof which can be closed in bad weather. Plenty of acivities for kids, kayaking, trampolines table tennis and small Go karts for a few euros. We bought a pass at 40 Euro which gave the kids 80 Euros worth of activities. One ticket done the whole family and ended the constant looking for change. We chose this site for it's proximity to Paris and the site runs it's own bus to Paris and Disney on alternate days. As we had a 3 day hopper pass, we took the bus once and drove down twice with only minor hitches the first day. It took about 1 hour 20 mins. Parc Asterix is nearer but closes at 7 pm and it is difficult to get anything to eat after the traditional french lunch time. My kids preferred Disney but they had 3 days in Disney and only 1 in Parc Asterix. Disney Studios was not as busy as Disneyland with shorter queues later. They do a parade too and it felt that more attention was given to the children lining the route. But then again the crowds were smaller. All in all a very sucessful holiday!
Great for kids
We stayed on this site in our own caravan, booking thru Eurocamp. We found out on site that it is a lot cheaper putting the package together yourself (around 300 pounds cheaper). The site itself is great. The pools are well looked after and the site is clean and tidy. There is some low key entertainment on some of the evenings - bingo and quiz etc. There are canoes, pedalos, fishing, tampolines, mini cars and a bouncy castle, plus numerous play areas dotted around the site. The restaurant is average but there is an on site 'take away' which is very good serving burgers, pizza's, cooked chickens, chips etc. A great site for the kids with plenty of space to run around and use their bikes. Highly recommended.
We booked with last minute com for £179 for 6 people including ferry crossing from uk. Not really expecting much but were very pleasantly surprised. The site has excellent facilities, is extremely clean, the staff were very polite and helpful. There are 2 outdoor pools and one indoor pool with a seperate indoor pool for kids which is enormous...housing four slides and a fountain. To keep older kids amused there are 3 tobaggon slides and a flume. There is also a jacuzzi to keep parents relaxed! Outdoors there is a beautiful lake which you can fish on for 20euros a week, 2 playgrounds, trampolines, bouncy castles motorbikes, cycles.You wake up to the sound of ducks outside your well equipt tent. It is 15 mins from Soissons which is a beautiful town. It has everything you need including a train station which takes you directly to Paris for 20euros return. Dont forget to walk around the Cathedral. Disney is 1 and a half hours drive which was good fun(yes have been to Florida and still enjoyed it!!!!). If you dont want to travel around the campsite has plenty to keep you amused. Vic sur Aisne the local village is lovely. It has a few shops and a park (the tree variety!) and pony rides for children. We had a fantastic time. Will definately be returning.
This is a lovely campsite. It is very well maintained and laid out, with large emplacements divided by hedges, giving a sense of privacy. There are plenty of things on site to keep the kids amused. The go-karts, trampolines and merry-go-round are very popular. Also there are canoes and pedaloes on the lake. The restaurant is quite good and the on-site takeaway is handy. The location of the site is very good. Disneyland is easily reachable (but a bit of a waste of money in my opinion, especially the Disney Studios park, which is rubbish)and there are lots of other interesting places to visit nearby. Pierrefonds is a gorgeous little town about seven miles away. It is very quaint and is overlooked by a huge fairytale-style chateau - definitely well worth a visit. The armistice clearing near Compienge has a good museum and is a fascinating spot for anyone interested in WW1 history. Compiegne itself is a lovely town, full of flowers and very pretty in the summer - great cathedral. The area immediately around the campsite is very rural and peaceful. The nearby village of Vic-sur-Aisne is walking distance and very quiet but the locals seem friendly enough. This is a great campsite for families with young children. The only drawback would be the lake, which is in the middle of the site and doesnt have any kind of barrier, so you would need to watch little ones carefully. That said, I would highly recommend this site.
We have been to this site three years running and have booked again for 2005. We find the site very clean and the vans are well laid out.with the prospect of the expansion of the site this coming visit we are looking foreward to it very much.we always go late september and find the site very peaceful and have three weeks stay. Our main interest is fishing,mainly fo carp,and find the fishing very good. And they are opening new lakes for 2005.getting to site is so easy as it is not far and the directions from Haven europe are good. We have travelled down the last two years on their N roads and found this quite pleasant,even though it takes a little longer. The reps on site are good and very helpful and the vans are always meticulously cleaned to a high standard. It is no surprise that we find quite a few people return to this site every year, some more than once.
Great holidays every spring
We are a family of 5,(3 kids aged 10-12yrs old twins). We have been to this site 4 times now always in the spring.Always book early to get early booking discounts,this added to loyalty discounts gets you a week for £250 for the family with a Eurotunnel crossing. The site is good,the pool complex has been extended,with the addition of a water slide,the canoes and trampolines etc are good value if you buy your tickets in bulk at the start of your holiday(2 for1). The Donjon restaurant in Vic-sur-Aisne is ok,but Chez Micheline in Berny Riviere is a real diamond. Very basic,very French,but the food is good and the hospitality is excellent. Parc Asterix beats Disney,our kids loved it.
Best holiday ever
last year was the first time,as a family that we ventured abroad. we decided on france as the kids wanted to visit euro-disney. I wanted rustic france.
we had the best of holidays ever and will certainly go back.
