Chez Clive

View from Clive's House

This trip followed discussions at the 2015 AGM of the Land Rover 127… Group that was organised by John Diggles at a campsite near to Settle. It was evident that the organisation of the Mongolia trip, that had been allocated to Clive (in absentia) was not progressing as quickly as it might so it was agreed (unanimously and again in absentia) that the next AGM would be held at Clive’s to assist him with the expedition programming.

I thought it polite to ask Clive first before we all turned up; but he seemed delighted (well almost!) at the prospect.

Jean and I took the opportunity to visit Tricia, who lives a bit further south of Clive on the Med. Coast, and who we had not seen for decades.

We crossed in to France from Portsmouth to Le Havre returning from Bilbao staying at Jean’s favourite campsite (amongst others en route) the Rio Vero Campsite near to Alquézar.

And inevitably ending up at Michels



So, where's Clive?

Carbasse, Coubisou, 12190, France.

The house is called Carbasse, there’s no street name.

Street View goes up the single lane road from the D22 and passes the bottom of Clive's lane at Sarrus.

GPS:- 44.572950, 2.727859
