‘Very nice little aire! Everything tip top for each other! Clean sanitary facilities, € 2 for 10 minutes of douching! what kind of one! Toilet block well suited for disabled visitors. The surroundings are beautiful! Gas station, supermarket within walking distance.’
Highly sought-after aire. Have stood for two days and always full. Service (water tapping/discharging, toilet, incl. electricity, washing machine €6, dryer, €4; everything well arranged. Also toilet (2) and shower €2 available. Entrance with barrier; take ticket and pay on departure. Large pitches (14) on asphalt or gravel with a grass strip. 20 minutes walk to the center. Some mega stores within walking distance. When the aire is full, continue to the campsite (100 meters).’
