This is another superb motorhome aire right on the Canal de l’Est, next to the Marina. It has room for 32 vehicles with unlimited stay and your €8 daily fee covers the electricity and water supply, plus the usual emptying facilities, and for an extra €1.50 you can have a shower in the Capitainerie block, which are very large and clean and also have washing and drying machines. There is free wifi for the first 24 hours too, for which a password must be obtained from the restaurant bar, where the daily fee is also paid.
We were going to stay only one night, but we enjoyed it here so much yesterday swimming and fishing in the river, plus the bonus of the wifi, that we decided to stay another night. It was busier yesterday, with about 10 motorhomes, but it’s only 6 of us now and very quiet. Adonis’s been listening to the Ashes cricket match and I’ve been crocheting my new vest from the Simply Crochet magazine, as well as reading, of course.
The drive here from Gérardmer was very easy and straightforward and took about 90 minutes, following mainly the D417 south west towards Remiremont, N57 to Plombières-les-Bains and Fougerolles and D417 again.
We are planning to go to the market at Langres tomorrow, about 36 miles west of Corre and wild camp by Lac de La Liez if at all possible.
