New translation, the Magna Carta

 

Motorway aires are designed to provide a suitable environment for relaxing, refreshing and recovering during the long, hard journeys. As well as facilities of often dubious nature, picnic tables and seats, a telephone kiosk, there are often optional extras such as a play area or a display related to some local interest or event.

poey de lascar aire - wildflower haven

Poey de Lescar aire

This verdant haven of trees and flowers, just beyond the pounding roar of the A64 autoroute offers secluded tranquillity as you pause on your journey along one of the few translateral motorways of France.

Children's play area at Poey de Lascar aire, A64

As well as the standard facilities of most aires, including a well-appointed child’s play area, there is a picturesque tree-shaded area of ground cover plantings, which when we visited included many wild flowers, including violets.
