A tricky one but I'm going for -
Les Portes-en-Re.
If I remember correctly it's near the Carrefour supermarket.

Has anybody had a request for the balance or tried to pay? I heard nothing and just tried to pay, but the payment screen bombed out as it did last time when I ended up paying the deposit twice.

Yes, we paid ours yesterday and exactly the same happened - payment screen bombed out etc.

I logged back in and the payment was 'pending validation' but the money was out of my account already so figured all was ok.

I then received an email from a Martin.

"We're all going on a...... (altogether now...) .... summer holiday....."

They have now sent me a message to say that my payment has been received, and that they will email me to confirm. Balance is due no later than 30 days before arrival by the way, which is today or tomorrow for most of you.

I've just had an email. I assume it's for you Alan. I'll forward it on.

It would help me a lot if you'd let me know when you've paid - I can then forward the emails.

Just a reminder that it's time to pay the balance of your booking if you haven't already done so.

If you've paid in full but haven't yet had a confirmation email from the site via me, please let me know.

Just a reminder for anyone who has yet to travel to mainland Europe in their kombi, the laws of the various countries require you to carry certain things - spare bulbs, hi-vis jackets, breathalysers etc.

These are the requirements for France:

• Full and valid driver’s licence
• V5C
• Proof of Insurance
• Passport/national ID
• Two NF certified breathalysers
• Reflective jackets for all passengers
• Warning triangles
• Headlamp beam deflectors
• GB sticker (non GB-euro symbol plates only)
• No speed camera detectors or sat-navs with camera locations

See you all soon!

@happyhouse, @sazzle - what are your plans for the Saturday night ( 19/8 ) stopover before boarding the return ferry?

Looks like they currently have space for the night at the site above...

Domaine de la Ville Huchet

Hi Keith, we are booked into the Campanile with the others on the 19th so no campsite needed. Thank you for thinking of us though Very Happy

On a separate note to those who have been before, are we likely to need a polarity reverser connection/tester plug? Have read several articles that suggest it's a good idea to have one just in case!

On some sites, yes, but not at Interlude Sunelia.

Hi everyone,

Almost all of you have now settled the balance with the site but there are still some emails from the site outstanding - I'll forward them when they arrive.

Meanwhile, can I ask that you let me know what accomodation you will have on your pitch please? We'll already be there when you arrive and, if its possible, I'm going to try and find out which pitches we've been allocated. I can then make sure that your needs are accomodated as fas as possible e.g. if you aren't bringing an awning, you won't need as big a pitch as someone with a Glawning.

I'll send everyone a message on the Messenger Group, so it would be best if you could reply on there.

I've just been to Halfords to buy some Breathalysers for the trip. They had some reduced but it's worth having a look at the bottom of the box for expiry dates - I fished around until I found some that expire in June 2019.

I don't think the breathalyser sticks law was ever implemented in France and the idea was abandoned a year or so back. I could not  find any French shop selling them when I tried a few years back and, in fact, the pharmacies  I tried had never heard of the proposed new law. They only seem to be available in  the UK. Does anyone know of anyone being asked to produce one when being stopped in France?

Well officially they are still on the legal list of items that you are required to take with you when you drive in France but there is NO FINE for not having them.

In January 2013 – the French government officially said that the introduction of a fine for not having an unused breathalyzer with you (which was to be €11) has been postponed indefinitely.

I guess it just saves a bit of hassle if you are stopped and asked.
