Awaycation Autumn 2024

Today I have been looking at the France 2020 Atlas to work out where we can stop overnight on the way down.

Does anyone else use a ruler to give a rough idea of distances? Just me?

The inside cover has the overview of the whole country showing the pages. I use that to roughly work out the stops with the ruler.

Allowing for our arrival in France. Shopping for us and Reggie on top I think that the first stop might be Formerie where we have stayed before.

It's a small Camping-Car Park Aire with only six pitches. Each with electric hook-up.

From there the Google Maps non-toll route goes in a familiar direction to Dreux and then diverts around Orléans and to the non-toll A77 towards Vichy and Millau on the non-toll A75.

From the ruler and overview page it looks like stops would be around Beaulieu sur Loire and Millau. This leaves us a clear run towards St Cyprien Plage.

No doubt when each journey gets plotted into the TomTom things will change a little! It will make its own mind up where to take us.

I have emailed the reception at Playa Romano to check the details for checking-in. Last time we had a bit of a palaver getting the keys to the apartment.

Oddly arrival days are limited to Saturday and reception is closed ... On Saturday.

I, we I should say, are hoping the apartment is a little tidier than before.

Maybe we'll get to use the pool this time!


As we are going earlier in the year hopefully there will be more open nearby. There were restaurants and shops but all locked up for the winter!

It's a nice walk along the boardwalk to the town itself where we found a really nice restaurant, overlooking the sea, for coffee and lunch.
