Motorhome Free Camping France - 1,700 Sites

This might be useful for some of you, I came across the website earlier whilst doing some more research for my upcoming European trip.

Completely free of charge overnight parking on little out of the way farms and vineyards right across France. No catches at all. You simply join as a member £22 (29 Euros) and get full membership for the year which includes a book with maps how to locate your next free camping spot in France.

Limited to one night per location.

Seems like a bloomin' good deal to me...

I hope this is useful info for a few of you considering going to France this year with your plastic pigs on 4 wheels lol.

Chin chin!

Ive seen French vans with a huge red FP sticker or two,i was told you stay max one night and must buy at least one box of wine at each stop.Sounds very expensive,near Bourg i followed a red sticker van to buy wine when we got there the least expensive table wine cost 7€ a bottle or 49€ a case (and wasnt as good as a 2€ wine from Cahors)Thats 1500€ PM for FP parkings??

There is no pressure to buy any of the local produce. Who told you that you had to buy at least one box of wine, the brother of the Farm owner probably :rofl::D

I got my France Passion book and sticker recently. They try to make it plain you are not obliged to buy anything, all they ask is that you say 'hello' and 'goodbye', thats it. Some of the sites apparently don't have anything to sell anwyay.

I was sorting through all the sites books I have bought recently, what with FP, All the Aires, the ACSI books, Bord Atlas etc there is getting to be quite a pile.

We are all hoarders :thumb: Right in the early days of having Trailer Tents and Caravans if there was space to put something then I would take it "It might just come in handy" I used to say.........Mmmmm and still do :( I guess it's only when you hit the road fulltime when storage space is at a premium that you learn to just take the 'essentials' for the lifestyle you intend to have. It's just getting around to getting rid of all those 'cherished' items :eek::eek:

Hmmm, maybe I had better buy that as well just in case.......

This will be our first time abroad in our van and maybe I have gone a bit overboard with the books and atlases but they don't cost a fortune and might come in useful.

I have been busy decluttering the van and clearing out all the stuff we will never use, meanwhile SWMBO has been busy putting it all back ;)

Alan's checklist:-

Children - Excess baggage, not essential, leave behind :D MMMMmmmm although may come in useful for Emergency rations :confused:

Wife - Excess BAGgage, not essential, leave behind. Can cook on an open fire or have take-aways & BBQ's and got Blackie to keep me warm :D

Breakdowns - Don't forget to take my medications, unless of course the medication is for my memory loss in which case I wouldn't remember why I was taking it in the first place :rofl:
