I've just acquired a campervan and will be taking it to Le Mans next year.
I have tent camped in bsj and expo for the last 7 years but don't think they would be that good for the van, what do you van campers think is the best site for 4 or 5 of us.

Ideally you are looking for sites with electrics or plan on taking a generator and fuel cans.

The two main sites with Electrics are Houx (Not Annexe) and Epinettes, (Cannot 100% confirm all pitches have electrics on here)

Don't expect to be able to get out with the motorhome from Thursday onwards on any site. Seriously consider having a support car, consider the space both of these take on your pitch.

Private sites will give you electrics and ease of getting in and out, however cost more.

Finally consider getting water on board. Take a water carrier and 12v submersible pump to get the water on board. In the same vain take something to empty the grey waste into.

Stayed on bleu nord with my t5 campervan and awning this year, space was tight but it worked ok and we (3) had a great week. You say campervan yet also mention for 4/5 people, i suspect you will need a double pitch as my swb t5 with the awning up just squeezed in the 7m/5m
space, had no trouble nipping to town in the van for supplies etc but avoid the friday/satuday , facilities were ok ie fresh water etc etc.

Epinettes does have electric, but only if you turn up early and it's not guaranteed. Unlike most of Houx it's non-numbered - you just get the next X pitches that they offer you (you can bargain a little) - it's a bit like the old days, but a little more organised as they mark out pitches (7x5m).

Make that 5 pitches 4 tents will barely fit on two pitches. The motor home will use most of 2 if it’s more then 5m. Then a bit of outside seating area. Work it out carefully otherwise there may be more in the van then you think.
