Before we left the UK we had work done on the van's carburetor. The float had developed a leak. This resulted in the fuel overflowing into the engine, resulting in hopeless flooding. In Pons this repair failed.
The Municipal Campground Manager was very helpful, giving us a map showing the nearest Renault Dealer. Lucky for us they were only 3 blocks away. They were wonderful. Had a mechanic stop work and go down to the van. Then they towed it to their shop and had it repaired before the end of the day, all for a very reasonable $120 CDN.
We spent the day walking around this very lovely village, that was once sacked by King Richard the Lionhearted of England.
