REVIEW

Very good Aire, this one -- plenty of walks around this Troglodyte village & cycle rides thru the vineyards. Museum of 'Pomme Tapee' is interesting. Grey & black drainage but no separate tap for rinsing, drinking water is only available via jetons (for 150L of water). These are available from the local shops or the Mairie; water pressure is very high.

Very well maintained modern Aire in a small gravel car park bordered by grass verges & trees -- quite quiet as it is well away from the main D947 although it is next to the road into the village (but this wasn't very busy). Variety of shops in village & eating places nearby.

We had no problems finding this comfortable Aire, in a green verdant spot -- lovely & clean, quiet and only 5 mins to the shops. Services were all free, picnic tables provided.
