User Review( votes)
The Motorhome Guide Camperstop Europe book is probably the best camper stop guide I have seen. I looked at buying the Bord Atlas, but I felt this was hard to navigate and not user-friendly at all. The Motorhome Guide Camperstop Europe is quite the opposite.

Motorhome Guide Camperstop Europe is currently in its 10th edition, covering 2016. Published by Facile Media, the book contains details of 8910 camper stops. The guide features 6804 photographs and 852 new entries for 2016. The countries within the guide (in alphabetical order) are:
- Bosnia Herzegovina
- Czech Republic
- United Kingdom
The Kon-tiki currently has a stash of aires and stellplatz books. These will be going in the bin. There is little point carrying numberous books when one covers the lot.
Each camperstop features an information panel and most show a photograph. The example below details the aire at Chavannes sur L’Etang – see here for our review. The book is a good “mirror” to our own review. We have also looked at other camperstops that we have visited. Again, the book is an accurate reflection.
Let’s take a look in detail at the Chavannes sur L’Etang description.
The number 15 at the left of the description, adjacent to the motorhome symbol indicates the number of “pitches” available. The price is then shown, along with the applicable hours for the tariff. The tap symbol tells us that fresh water is available. The next symbol – resembling a flag in a hole, indicates grey water dumping. Ch is the abbreviation for chemical disposal point whilst WC indicates that toilets are available, along with the price for these facilities. The “surface” is the ground formation of the aire – in this case tarmac.
Each inclusion within the Motorhome Guide Camperstop Europe has an address and GPS co-ordinates.
This is without doubt the best aires/stellplatz/sosta book that I own. The others are going to be donated to anyone that wants them. Or the bin.
Motorhome Guide Camperstop Europe – a negative
If there is a down side, it is the size. It’s A4 in size. However, many motorhomes have seat back nets available. Our Fiat has a tray under the driver’s seat
The book is available from Amazon – ours arrived two days after ordering. Search the listings though – the cheapest is sold by Brown’s Bookshop.
