The first week of our trip in France we stayed in Châtel-Guyon, which is close to Riom where my dad is living.

During our stay in Châtel-Guyon we stayed at the "Camping de la Croze," which is just a few kilometers from my dad's* retirement home in Riom.

The main reason we chose this campsite is because in addition to having pitches where you can have your motorhome or caravan, it also has mobil-homes that you can rent.

We were not going alone, my aunt was also coming and we didn't have enough room to have her with us. We looked at hotels, but this was not a convenient, cheap or fun option.

So we went for the mobilhome option, which enabled us to stay together.

This is their website from where I made a reservation online, two weeks prior to arriving.

We planned to stay 3 or 4 nights, but we extended our stay to a week.

Our first Day

This was the area we had with electricity and water and as you can see, it was not too crowded in October.

We really enjoyed staying here because of the trees and the very good climate. We slept like babies.

Then, we drove the motorhome to Riom where we had lunch. The weather was starting to get nice. We had pizza, pasta with meat and chocolate cake, which was a bit too sugary.

This was the chocolate cake that we did not even finish.

Then we had a strong, but excellent Espresso coffee.

We visited my dad at the retirement home in the morning and he was not feeling well, so he had lunch there, while we were at the restaurant, and we came back to visit him again after lunch.

Our second day

On this second day, we went to Châtel-Guyon for a walk and to buy some groceries.

This is a parking lot with an area for motorhomes to stay temporarily and where you can spend the night.

We parked there for a couple of hours.

This is the machine where you pay the parking fee and next to it, you can have water and empty your toilets.

This was our walk that morning and it was not always flat, quite a bit of a hill to climb there.

Châtel-Guyon is well-known for their SPA and Casino.

Some photos now and as you can see the weather was nice.

There are lots of old houses.

After the walk we went to the retirement home to pick up my father and we came back to the campsite for lunch. There was a specific area for the mobil-home and I parked next to it so he wouldn't have to walk too far.

That was the mobil-home my aunt stayed in for a week and we spent most of the afternoon there.
