We had two days of solid rain. Is this summer? At the campground we saw a small caravan and then a car get stuck as they took a short cut over the grass to the pitches they had been allocated. Our extra car mats we carry came in useful on both occasions and a lot of help by all the other campers around.
We had hoped to go to Nancy as a short stepping stone to visiting the Vosges mountains but despite various attempts to contact the campground near Nancy (e-mail, phone etc.) we had not got any response. So instead we found a small campground near the spa town of Vittel which could accommodate us.
We arrived safely at the campground which was a little gem. Easy in and big hardened pitches. When we arrived about 3pm we were one of four campers by eight o’clock at night the campground was ¾ full. The majority of the units were from the Netherlands and we discovered later that this was a known stopping point between the Netherlands and the south of France and Spain.
By the next morning only three of us were stopping for a second night. On our second night the same thing happened again this time the campground was almost full. In Europe the concept of the pull-through pitch, which is common in North America, is not known but this campground would be the ideal contender to be redeveloped in that style as very few of the caravans (trailer vans in North America) unhooked for the night.
