I'm doing the same journey and wouldn't touch Paris with a barge pole (even if he were a plumber).

Yep thats the way I would go

No need to go any where near Paris at all .. even if you wanted to.. wrong direction... :no:

This is the best way - done it for years.

Calais >>A28 >> Rouen

A13>> N154 >> Chartres

A10 >> Orleans

A71 >> Vierzon (some might say come off at Limoges and go down then N21 but that is a horrible towing road --)

better to keep on the Auto route

A20 to>> Briev-la-Grand

A89 >> Perigueux -- and you are more or less there..

530 miles or so

850 Km

If you wanted an over night there is a nice place just outside Chateroux - just off the A20 at J15~~ at about 350 miles - but that might be too far..?

Les grand pins

there is also a very nice - overnight place at Vierzon -- a wonderful municipal site..310 miles..

After getting extremely lost on the periphique a few years ago (before Satnav) I would always avoid Paris if possible.

this is the file to put on your Tom-Tom -- if you have Europe maps.. put them in the map folder and it will create a new set of Poi's for the CC campsites --

There are two files -- one *.ov2 and the other a pic file..

don't for get the picture file as well..(small caravan)

We stayed at the municipal site at Brionne a couple of years ago when we wanted a stop just after Rouen. It was a nice enough little place with a Champion very close by and the site was just a short walk from the town. http://www.campingfrance.com/fiche.jsp?fic...g=uk&ch=geo
