  Travellers Camp in the Valley

Fondest memory:

I had not considered the time of year of our trip to France would coincide with the grape harvest. Thousands of pickers are needed in the 2 week period to pick all the grapes whilst they are at their best.

There were many inpromptu Traveller/Gypsy camps on the side of the road and any spare wasteland. Back breaking work as no machinery can be used, but it must be worth their while to come here.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
