The concept is simple
All over France farmers and wine-growers invite you to stopover freely on their property, day or night, for up to 24hrs.

Each host signs an invitation for one year, reserved exclusively for France Passion members traveling in a self-sufficient (water, waste, rubbish) motorhome. To use this extraordinary campervan stopover network, all that is required is to say "Hello" and "Thank you" and to have the current France Passion guide.
