|Stone cross outside Camping Le Fondespierre|
Pitches here vary widely in size and shape. Ours is nicely sheltered, but I am not sure we have room to put up the awning. There's a good range of facilities - outdoor gym, table tennis, kids play area and a bouledrome. Most of the shower block is closed off for the winter, however the small room where the winter showers are located has a fantastically efficient heater. I saw mention of a library on the website, but haven't spotted it yet. The bar-pizza area also looked closed up yesterday and I guess any books would be in there. Perhaps an influx of campers for Le Weekend will open the doors? Camping Le Fondespierre is one of the pricier ones at €17.10 per night with our ACSI card and wifi is €10 for three days. I saw this stone cross outside the campsite entrance and we assumed it must be a war memorial. However the base isn't engraved with any names so now we aren't sure quite why it is there.
Yesterday afternoon we took advantage of a quiet back road into the nearest town, Castries, and cycled there for a quick shopping trip. It's a little hilly, but we managed! The supermarket is a Casino which has an odd range of products. I am hoping to visit the large greengrocers next door on our next trip as well as making use of the local butcher and bakers. I wonder when the weekly market is ... ?
