Description

Camperstop Europe 2018 is a simple directory of Aires de service France, Stellplatze in Germany and Aree di Sosta in Italy, plus 24 other European countries that have motorhome stopovers, motorhome campsites, tolerated camper parking or service points for motorhomes. Please note that the cover states 10500 motorhome stopovers however 7,815 towns are listed in the two indexes. Multiple entries probably account for the discrepancy; for example Albi in France has 4 Aires de services listed in Camperstop 2018 and All the Aires France has 5.

Camperstop Europe is the perfect book to have stored in your motorhome just in case find yourself somewhere you didn't expect to be. Although not as comprehensive as a country-specific guide, Camperstop is a lifeline for new places and offers a good overview of motorhome stopovers throughout Europe. 

Camperstops might be more commonly known as Aires, stopovers and sometimes, incorrectly, wild camping or motorhome campsites. These overnight motorhome parking areas are exclusively for motorhomes and campervans. CamperStop Europe is written in English and published by Dutch publisher, Facile Media.

How to use Camperstop Europe 2018

Format

39 maps cover the 27 countries at the beginning of the Camperstop Europe 2018 guide. Stopovers are identified on the maps with a red dot next to the town name. We counted 7600 town names in the indexes located below the maps and in the alphabetical index at the back. Both indexes include symbols next to the town name to show at a glance what type of stopover/s are there.

Brief information is provided at the start of each country section about driving regulations and general information like dialing codes, emergency numbers, currency and some parking regulations.

Listings

Camperstop listings start with a coloured block detailing the type of motorhome stopover, town name and map reference (map number followed by grid reference). They then detail the address, GPS coordinates in the format: n52,39185 e7,05025 as well as an accompanying photo for 7751 listings. There are no directions for any listings.

A few descriptive words may be given as 'Remarks' at the end of the listing (i.e. Automatic bred distributor.). The guide lists the number of parking spaces and cost of services and many entries now have a brief description of the type of location (i.e. quiet, rural) and the parking surface (i.e. gravel). This is followed by opening times and distances to useful facilities identified by symbols (restaurants, town centre). Some entries also have supporting tourist information, which may include museums, markets, buildings, etc. (i.e. 'Modern port city and seaside resort with casino and horse race track'). Postcodes are not supplied in this publication.

Type of Stopovers

Camperstop divides the stopovers into more than six types, including Aires (official motorhome areas), tolerated parking areas (discussed below), campsites, restaurants, farms and marinas.

"Overnight parking tolerated" areas

Camperstop also includes many "overnight parking tolerated" areas and these are often the source of much controversy in the motorhoming world. These stopovers can be very convenient, free and in idyllic locations; but as they are unofficial, they can often be unreliable. This is why this guide is also known as the Marmite guide.

"Overnight parking tolerated" areas are described by the publisher as: "officially prohibited but tolerated by local authorities". They are usually fine to use as long as you keep your chattels inside your camper and don't park somewhere that causes offence or contravenes any laws. However, it is good to be aware that by putting these places into print it is likely that many motorhomers descend on one spot, and this can cause problems.
