Points (places) of Interest



Motorhomers - Campervanners

So you like coming over touring in Brittany one of the most motorhome friendly country with its huge number of places or sites or areas or locations or spots where motorhomes can stay, in a nutshell a moho nirvarna & for that no need of an off-road capable live-aboard vehicle with all the off-road bells, whistles, & creature comforts obliterating the million euro mark but nevertheless you’re welcome should you be lucky enough to own such a beast. No prejudice around.

Down below are links to files in various formats of a comprehensive list of those useful Points (Places) of Interest Brittany (e.g. stopovers, camper stops, campsites aka CP, sanitary stations [bornes or aires de service], Stellplätze, Wohnmobilstellplätze, bobilsiden, aree di sosta, camperplaatsen , camperparks, husbilsplats, bobilparkering,... aka AS where dumping waste water whether black or grey is almost always free but other facilities such as fresh water or electricity require some payment usually by means of a credit card, supermarkets & others of interest such as DIY shops, chandlers & so on, car parks or conventional parking lots aka P, slipways, & more,...) for recreational vehicles aka RVs, motorhomes, camp trailers, motor caravans, campers, camper vans, conversion vans, pick up campers, truck campers, dormobiles, caravanettes, supercab trucked fifth wheel trailers, house trailers, trail cars, kombis, combis, mobile homes, camping cars, house buses, caravans, autocampere, campingbusse, you name it, <g>.

Please remember : All across Europe local laws only permits 'Self-Contained/Self-Sustained' motor caravans or campers to be parked responsibly & their users to cook & sleep inside. A self-contained motorhome or self-sustained camper van needs to have on board fresh water containers, built-in waste tanks & toilet, & you must be able to cook & sleep inside the vehicle. Parking is only allowed, on public domain as a rule on areas designated for parking vehicles, on private land always with owner permission. Camping at AS i.e. winding out awnings, putting out tables & chairs, erecting a tent, getting your Moroccan mat pegged down, hanging out washing or starting a gen-set is usually forbidden throughout Europe. Don't abuse stopovers; no antisocial behaviour such as noise, littering and vandalism; do not try & park so as to reserve yourself extra room; AS are stopovers or for very short stays & not designed to be a holiday destination; if you want to camp, use a campsite.
