Alongside a myriad of campsites, there are thousands of official, or semi-official stop-overs available with more basic facilities. You might have come across the names: aires, sostas and stellplatz, among others. We use these, a lot. The locals use them too, they are very popular, especially in the summer months! Camperstop Europe, there is a edition available now see end of post. So how do we find these spots? In a few different ways, one of which is the Camperstop Europe Book , which we started using in There are a serious number of places listed in these countries!
So, this is how the book works. It is intended for motorhomes — units which are self-contained so have their own water and toilet facilities. It explains the cost to stay, any limitations on how many days, the services available and the distance to town and shops, and so on. To find somewhere to stay, you can either search for the name of a town in the index or do what we normally do, which is to use the maps, like this:.
First go the overall map page and look for the detail map which covers your area. Yes, incredibly some of these places are right next to campsites! The GPS co-ordinates are at the top, along with the street name so you can double-check you typed them into your satnav correctly!
How strange… That aire in Huelgoat is part of the reason we got a motorhome at the end of last year. We had a holiday in a house in Huelgoat and saw the aire right next to the lake and it got us thinking about buying a motorhome…. If so it is a bargain as they are sold per country. Hi Alan. In a word, yes. If you only want to buy and carry one or the other, camperstop is cheaper and has more coverage. Neither has all the locations in though, so if you want as much coverage as you can get particularly if you are staying in one country then get both.
Cheers, Jay. Great guide. I have been using the Camperstops book for the last 3 years but it sounds like it might be worth getting a newer version as mine only has stopovers and I recently found that some no longer exist! I tend to use it in conjunction with campingcar-infos.
They have over 19, stops in all European countries and morocco. I have added loads and also left something like reviews. Just need to connect to wifi every now and again to sync the newest data. Wifi is initially required to download the offline maps but after that you can practically use it anytime anywhere with no internet.
Enjoying your latest and hope to get out on the road semi-long term again soon. The cats are getting restless! The 4G kit is working very well. We have the usual problem of managing how much data we use, but the MiFi reports on that quite well, and we also sometimes need to manually change the network selected, but only normally when we enter a new country. As far as I know it is now discontinued and there is a new model.

BGD - AM I do wonder how long these printed, cost-a-lot, not up-datable through the year, guides will continue to sell in the face of the internet quicker, more up to date and obviously much cheaper alternatives. BGD - AM Just a thought, but there are now several very good website guides that, for free, provide the same if not more information I do wonder how long these printed, cost-a-lot, not up-datable through the year, guides will continue to sell in the face of the internet quicker, more up to date and obviously much cheaper alternatives.
