Giffaumont-Champoubert, Sunday 14th August 2011

Standard

Motorhome aire at Giffaumont-Champoubert

 

 

On the Lac du Der Chantecoq, by the sailing school.  It’s a lovely place with a sandy beach and good swimming spots, but so far we’ve been unable to find the facilities to empty the chemical toilet or fill up with water.

 

 

 

 

 

It’s been a very warm and mainly dry day, with just a shower on the way here and some drizzle just now.  We got to the lake at around 11 am, but we couldn’t find a wild place to stop for the night, so we had to come to this very busy aire, we had coffee and then lunch, siesta, walk with Bramble, swim in the lake, beer and I’ve just been for a long walk across the bridge to the other side by the church erected to remember the 3 villages that were swallowed by the lake.

We’d stay here another night, but the lack of facilities is a problem and we might try the north side of the lake tomorrow at Ste Marie du Lac Nuisement, and if we don’t like it, we’ll move south west towards Troges and Joigny on the riverYonne.
