Suggestions Overnight Stops Calais To Sarlat Maybe Around Half Way


Recommended Posts

What time is your ferry arrival time? We've stayed in several good overnight stop campsites, but it does depend on what time you arrive in Calais.

Hi, I always use this site just off the motorway. http://www. campingdesologne. co/

 

If you are traveling in July and August arrive at the site about 16. 00 Hrs as it will fill up. It is a very popular site.

Hi, depends on your time of arrival in France and your preferences for travelling. We choose non toll and last year we stopped overnight at Campsite St Claire Neufchatel-en-Bray which is a ACSI site.; Very pleasant and a nice 15 minute walk into the small town. Its about 100 miles from Calais. WE would stay again, perhaps for a little longer.

we have been there, good site,

you could also try camping marsalan at vert en drouais, near dreux. about 200 miles ish. large Cora, just down the road.

basic site but has electric, good showers etc, and open all year, depend which way you are going to sarlat.

free motorway all the way to rouen then very good A154.

I usually stop at either Camping La Grand Sologne at Nouan -le -Fuzelier or Camping De Sologne at Salbris.

 

The Salbris site has a nice lake and the town is okay for a short stroll and has a couple of good restaruants.

 

The one at Nouan-Le-fuzelier has more modern facilities, but there is not much else in the town.

What month are you going ? as I said earlier if you are going July and August you may well have to book a site as soon as possible. To travel 200 miles that will take you about 4 Hrs with out stops and most sites start to fill up after 16. 00 Hrs

Harking back to our last couple of visits to Sarlat area. ......we stayed at a very luxurious Municipal at Pierre- Buffiere (82760)..It is a smashing site which had only opened the night before we stayed the first time but it has a good restaurant and a small local museum. ......It looks and feels like a private site but we were told by the ladies there that it belonged to the Office of Tourisme. ........It is slightly further South being about 12 miles south of Limoges. .exit 40 off the A20 and a few hundred yards. .....Camping de Chabanas is the name.

 

For many years we used a site at Chateauroux slightly higher up country. ........well used flat site which lots of people use as a transit point and you could normally stay hitched up for an early getaway. ..Les Grands Pins at Les Maisons- Neuves . ..it is in the CC Book. .....

We've used several of the sites mentioned already - and the one advantage of that route is that you're never far from a site near to the main road, which can be accessed easily when you want to stop. We've also stayed in Chateauroux, at Le Rochat Belle Isle, which is a Camping Cheques site all season, and also at the municipal site at Vatan. Both have good big pitches, both walking distance to restaurants and bars, both have good sanitary facilities, and the Vatan site has free access to the municipal pool. Vatan is very convenient for the motorway with an entry and exit to both the north and south of the village, so in one way, out the other. The Vatan site, however, does have a notice saying that twin axles will be charged double. I'm not sure if this applies to British outfits or is just to deter French 'Travellers'.

 

A bit further north, and perhaps more in the area you'll be when you need to stop, is Camping Eure et Seine at Pont de l'Arche, just south east of Rouen. Another in that area is Camping Pre d'Eglise, in St Remy sur Avre (*under Nonancourt in the Caravan Club Europe 1). Both are good for overnight stops.
