Macon would make for a good second overnight on the way to the Ardeche, We used to camp at one quite close to the Town itself, think it must have been a Municipal, but had good facilities.

Edit = Linky.

Chateau de L'Eperverie is another good one. North of Macon. Lovely riverside restaurant across the field when we were there.

We used to break up the journey in Burgundy - around the Dijon area - which was just about the right distance for two long days.

However, the timing of your ferry arrival will make all the difference to recommendations.  If you're arriving early morning then you can get a fair way down France, if late afternoon then a couple of hours away from Calais might be the right distance.

What time does your ferry arrive in Calais.

We have travelled from Calais to the Ardeche many times and have usually stopped in Guignicourt and Macon. Without the stop in Macon makes it a long drag. Sites in Guignicourt and Macon are good sites and easy to get to from the motorway.

If going down the A6 we tend to use one of these...

Camping Les Bouleaux

Camping Du Pont De Bourgogne

Camping De Tournus

All good sites for a stop over.

Hi Becky, I don't even know which route you are taking so can't advise, but a decent site guide will give you about 50 possibilities for overnight stops - but in August on popular routes it's best to make an early morning start and pick a site at 4pm wherever you happen to be. Then open the beers and watch the others arrive.

We are doing the same trip in August down to the Ardeche.

On way down 2 nights in Versailles, 1 night at Chateau de l'Eperviere.

On way back 2 nights in centre of Dijon, 1 night Chailons en Champagne and 2 nights La Bien Assise near Calais.
