Vernioz, France

The plan is to continue heading South so we headed to a site below Lyons http://www.camping-lebontemps.com/en/3/camping/.

Once again it was a tight squeeze for Mr H to manoeuvre the RV on narrow approach roads, through the strangely-angled gate, avoiding multiple overhanging trees, children on their bikes and a very large rock strategically placed on the route to our pitch but we made it in one piece. We had a limited choice of pitches (well one really) on the site but the staff and camp director Derek were very helpful, he promptly sawed off two large branches so we could fit the bus in :) 

This busy site was full of last week school-holiday campers and people stopping over en-route North/South. Our arrival was a scource of entertainment with many people coming to look at the RV, stare through every window and ask endless questions about the make, engine-capacity, mileage and cost, all whilst we tried to chill in the sun, watch TV or cook a meal! I have now developed stock answers for the most FAQ's and can be avoidant without causing offence.

The site had a fishing pond so Mr H got his fix of carp-bashing in the cooler early evenings and we shared a Pizza from the restaurant one evening as Mr H was fishing, the flies and ants liked it too! 






However, the site is very rural and a long way from any shops of note (16km to the nearest supermarket) and was more geared to families. The play area complete with bouncy castle was right next to our open pitch with hundreds of kids on the bouncy castle during the day and groups of noisy teenagers at night:)) So after a week here we decided to continue our trip South.
