We're driving to Italy in August, and are thinking about where to overnight stop. The DSs are 6, 8 and 10 and aren't going to love the car bit... We're a good couple of hours from Dover so if we left home early on day 1, I reckon could get to perhaps Mâcon to overnight. Or maybe we should get to the coast (or even over to Calais) the day before so we could get further through France on the first full day. Any advice, suggestions, drug recommendations etc all welcome.
We have stayed here about 10 mins off the Motorway at the Macon Nord exit. It is lovely - food was very good and they do free wine tasting. Gorgeous garden - where they served breakfast. I have booked to stop off there this summer too.
