  Europe 2006 Sites

Here is a list of the campsites and aires we stayed at during our 2006 tour. The standard of campsites was generally good. Many sites abroad seem to have a mixture of touring and static caravans often hidden by wooden "awnings" so you wouldn't know there was a caravan underneath it! 

There were plenty of aires in France and stellplatz in Germany, at least in the main tourist areas but sometimes they were difficult to find despite having their co-ordinates and satnav.

detailed lists of Aires and Stellplatz with GPS co-ords and photos

 We downloaded the lists from the useful website and imported them into Microsoft® Autoroute 2005
