  1. We came over on 20th May to Ypres the site was full. 2 nights later we went to Olivet near Orleans and the owner said her takings we’re down by 30%. From there we went La Paille Basse in Souillac and there were only about 6 units there. From there we went to Bois Soleil at St George de Didonne where we still are. I have never seen so many empty pitches in about the 20 years we have been coming here. Les
  2. Last time I was there I went to the car about 7am and hafar shock. This big bloke must have been 6foot 6 tall and seemed to be the same across the shoulders. Came towards me, I was a bit concerned but he went to the bin to empty it. He was security and the gendarmerie came down for a chat with him. To me it is the safest aire that I have stayed at and would recommend it.
  3. Still not received mine. I emailed them this afternoon, still hoping as we leave for Spain on 2nd January. les
  4. Ours is coming from ACSI but it hasn't come yet. Hoping it will be here before 2nd January. We will be on the ferry to Bilbao. Les
  5. I haven't had any problems in Spain and I used it in January to March, I was able to get all the main channels. I just connected to the internet and used it. I have never used VPN. Les
  6. It depends on which sites you are going to. There are sites that have tv hook upon the bollards. The site we use in Benicassim. There is someone who has 12 big dishes and if he can will connect you to one of them for 1 euro a day. another way is if you can get wifi download tv catchup.
  7. We have always found the man in reception to be very good.
  8. La Futuriste has stopped taking Campingcheques and started taking ACSI it is a good overnight stop and you can fill up with cheap fuel compared to the motorway.
  9. We use a bit of grey pipe lagging cut to size, works perfectly. Les
  10. I am glad to see this post as I am gointo Riva Bella on Thursday ready for the ferry on Friday. Last year we were searched 3 times on the port and again at Portsmouth. I have no objections as it looks like they are taking the problems seriously. Last Year they were still doing the work on the pool etc. Les
  11. I have seen about migrants in Ouistreham on other forums. The police are apparently more active around the port and do more checks. I saw that if you are stopping at Riva Bella then it is best to take the first turning off of the roundabout just outside which says no Caravans. The migrants are supposedly more active at the traffic lights in the town, but at the moment they are more interested in lorries rather than Caravans. When we came back in March we were searched 3 times from going through the first book in to getting on the ferry. They went in the Caravan lifted the bed and seats each time and checked the boot of the car. We normally stop at Riva Bella but are considering Des Cappuccines which is only 5 minutes further away. We are catching the ferry back from there on 29th June at 0830. I will let you know how we get on, but will keep watching for any further updates till then. Les
  12. We used to store ours there for about 7 or 8 years with no problems. About a year ago we moved house and are now able to store our Caravan at the house. Did you take photos when it was is the original position and when it had mysteriously moved? Is your caravan just on the left near the washing area or a bit further round and back onto the canal. We were in row F, I must admit we were getting a bit concerned as they were doing a lot of work up near the general washing area. I couldn't see what changes they made to be upgraded from silver to gold. Have you let CASSOA know about the incident? I wonder if they are trying to get rid of Caravans and fill up the whole area with those horrible containers. I hope you get everything sorted out soon. Les
  13. Have a look on eBay you can get a mains water kit to either go straight into the van or to fit into your aqua roll. I use one that connects straight into the van and switch the pump off when I leave the Caravan. I have used this method for about 9 years and as yet never had a problem. Les
