Do you think that after drinking a glass of wine you will not get behind the wheel? Even though you have nothing to drink, since July 1, 2012 there must be an alcohol tester in your car or camper present.
Castles, fortresses and nature
The country of France has a long history, much of which has been preserved. The number of beautiful castles, fortresses, churches and abbeys is large. Normandy is teeming with medieval castles and country houses. The military architecture is still present, examples are the fortified castles of Caen and Falaise, as well as the castles of Gaillard Andelys, Gisors and Harcourt.
In France, tolls are charged on most motorways. So make sure you have the necessary information about payment options and rates in advance.
