"English/French owned and operated Chambres d'hÃ´tes in the South of France, located in the small scenic town of Coursan within easy walking distance of restaurants. We're only 7km from Narbonne, 12km from the golden sandy beaches of the Mediterranean, 1hr from Spain and 2.5hrs from Andorra making an ideal base for touring this beautiful, scenic and historic part of the world. Run by motorcyclists for motorcyclists, with some of the best roads in the world!" Recommended by Malcolm Hartill, Southampton, UK : "Bed and Breakfast + self catering holiday apartments. Awesome roads, absolutely stunning scenery, close to Mediterannean, Andorra, Pyrenees, Corbieres, Minervois & Spain etc. Guided Motorcycle Tours also available. Secure garaging.

"Arya Panya (ph. 0140554300) is the man who looks after carnets in Paris." Recommended by Jenny Kelso & Peter Hendricks in France. "He seems much more knowledgeable than our local office here in Nice. Cost: â‚¬114 for club membership, â‚¬150 for carnet + deposit of 150% of Argus (semi-official valuation) per vehicle."
More info from Peter:
"Club membership plus carnet fee is 199â‚¬ Security deposits: 250% Egypt, minimum 3.850 â‚¬ 150% Iran, minimum 3200â‚¬ 100% rest of the world, minimum 2300â‚¬ This is based on the semi-official 'Argus' value of the vehicle. Normally, they will NOT issue carnets for foreign registered vehicles. The reason for this is apparently a directive by the AIT allowing only the auto clubs of the country where the vehicle is registered to issue the carnet!"
