Camping car parking adjacent to the pont canal. Large open level free parking with services. You can walk over the bridge or along the old canal below. Then spend a quiet night in your camper.

Lovely town with plenty of interesting things to see. Good public swimming pool. Would definitely return as we only had 24hrs in all to explore before taking our locaboat.
