I have been asked by my brother in law if there are secure winter storage sites around Tours/Blois/Orleans. They have a large motorhome and live in Australia. It will not be a case of just popping over if anything untoward happens.

Is there a website or does anyone know of such a site?

The Caravan Club give details on their website of indoor/outdoor storage - if you're not a member email me and I'll email you the download (having just downloaded it!).

You can also 'Google' Garage Mort, for any destination, in Pages Jaunes!

Having looked through the list, there doesn't appear to be anything in/around that area which specifically offers indoor storage.

We've just stored our caravan indoors in the Languedoc, easy access to Toulouse Airport for international flights, if that's of any interest.

There are some previous threads on storage in France ... worth your while to check them out via the 'search' facility.

I seem to recall that Le Moulin Fort at Chenonceaux did storage under cover. Its an English owned site which might make communication a little easier!

Thank you all for the tips...I have forwarded them to the Australia.

It appears that mobile homes are very much cheaper here than in Australia. So buy in the UK, keep for a year, ship to Australia and still sell for a very nice profit.

Seems a lot of bother to me

Hi Stuart,

The phrase you need is: "camping car hivernage" followed by the town or department.

Did a search for you without much luck, except for this link: http://www.paruvendu.fr/auto-moto/annonceautofo/liste/listeAnnonces?ddlTri=dateMAJ&ddlOrd=desc&ddlNbAnn=20&r=VCA00000&r1=VCAHI000&p=1®=7&tt=4&tf=LA

Hope this helps

            Thank you for that   " hivernage " is obviously what he requires.

            Thanks Val for the pages jaunes

            So much for Australian moans " I can't find anything on the web " ...they are not much good at cricket either.
