Aire with free hookup point at bottom of site  Very nicely laid out with individual places, except bottom two or three where they are doubles.  A good 20 minutes walk into the town centre and a further 10 minutes into the main tourist centre area of the martyrs village.  It is just over 1 km away but fairly level ground on a quiet road.   Site is on a slope but each pitch is levelled out so little levelling is needed.
Attractions Nearby:Cost per 24hrs: Aire is 1 km away from the original preserved ruined village – result of massacre of entire population by Nazi’s during the latter stages of WW2.  Follow signs for “Village Martyr”  This is an eerie place to walk around. The museum is interesting.  Definitely worthwhile buying the guide book where it details all the lead up to the massacre and the resulting war crimes trial in Bordeaux – with a little twist at the end.Free
