Motorhoming in France | A Chance to see a small piece of Viking History in Rouen
On our previous journeys towards the south of France, we’ve spent many an hour trying to find a great family friendly motorhome stop enroute /leaving Calais… the type of stop that is easy to get to within a few hours but feels like you’ve arrived in France.
So this cracking little aire at Pont de l’Ache near Rouen will certainly feature in our next ebook on Motorhome StopOvers / Places to stay across France (details of our last trip are in this ‘Exploring France Ebook‘, including prices, facilities and GPS coordinates)
Every region should have Something special
Pont de l’Arche cannot lay claim to this, yet it played a pivotal role some 600 years earlier in 861… when the town was created as a pivotal strategic position to repel the Vikings who were invading down the Seine… the constant retaking of positions lasted some 20+ years after the Vikings settled in 1861
So if you have a little time, or a budding historian with you in the van or you just fancy a decent breakfast of some of the best croissants you’ll taste… you might just want to chance your arm and visit Pont de l’Arche on your next visit into France
