La Colline de Bussang, N66, France

Keeping the toll-free route in mind, we were committed to running via Luxembourg. This was due due to our present location at Mons and also the low-priced diesel in Luxembourg! After breakfast we followed the “usual” route via Charleroi and Arlon towards Luxembourg. Pausing for lunch and to take on fuel at the Berchem service area, priced just 1.25 euro/litre. – This equates to £4.78 per gallon when paid for using the Clarity credit card. The motorhome was filled to the brim at this price! From Luxembourg it was back into France and passing Metz, Nancy, Charmes and Epinal we heading south towards La Colline de Bussang. Whilst this is a “mountain pass”, it is only to a height of 700 metres so nothing severe. We have used this route in winter before, both north and south bound.

Traffic on La Colline de Bussang

The N66 runs through some small towns and villages but traffic was minimal, and there were plenty of places to pull over and have a brew. Entering Cernay, we topped up with fuel at the E Leclerc supermarket, again a low-cost affair with fuel at 1.34 euro per litre. We headed for the motorway towards Mulhouse and the Swiss border at Basel. The border was very quiet indeed and it was about 5pm. We completed the necessary paperwork and I think the office staff were grateful to have someone in who knew what to do, and I ended up sorting out a few other people with their toll/tax payments too. Lots of Swiss toll information is available here and the information detailed there is still correct as of today.

Our overnight stop was at Camping Sursee, just a couple of minutes from the A2 motorway.
