Bourges

GPS Position:  North 47.076625 East 02.3986029

Right in the centre and some 250 mtrs from the Cathedral. Next to the sports stadium. Well signposted from both sides. There is a smaller more rural looking Aire some 400mtrs south west but is much smaller than this. The Aire is free and so is the EHU although only two points and are much used by those in the know with some 6 campers hooked up to each plug. Long MH’s may need to use the opposite side to the stadium as it is a bit longer however at 8.5mtrs we had plenty of room on the stadium side.  We were concerned that the athletes using the stadium would make it noisy at night but this proved to be unfounded as the stadium closed down after 8pm and we had a quiet night.

Cost per 24hrs:

Ideal for visiting the old city of Bourges with cathedral and old 14th century buildings. Free museums all over the city. The “petite Train” at €7 does a roaring trade. From June to end Sept the cathedral and selected buildings are illuminated on Thurs/Fri and Sat evenings (every night during July and August).  The Tourist Info Office was particularly helpful and has its own museum of the town.  There is a good walk around the city walls with the occasional cafe to rest the weary legs.
