Default Portugal campsite near Albufeira, a little gem

We are at the campsite Parque Autocaranas Albufeira near Guia in Portugal. It was recommended by a fellow funster and we are glad he did although we’re just about to leave. So I thought I would just say a few words about the site and the owner and hope fellow funsters will call.
The site is owned and run by Pedro and Sandra....two smashing people...Pedro never stops smiling and laughing..and nothing seems too much trouble to him. It is a small friendly campsite that takes about 15 motorhomes. There’s a swimming pool, games and tv lounge, plenty of seating in different areas of the grounds, there are also apartments available at the property. Hot shower, toilet and laundry available.
A dump point for grey water and cassette disposal point, water taps all over the site and electric lighting.
16 amp Electric points and Wifi....all these are included in the price of 7,50 euros in Winter and 10 euros during the Summer. The site is a little gem.

And only 33km from Portimao if you are touring that area.

An added bonus is that there is an Iceland shop 4kms away (2.5 miles)from the campsite,
And for you Young at heart or was it old Fa***,,,behind Iceland is Cliff Richard’s vineyard!! Where they do tours tasting and a shop

It sounds & looks to be a great site & possibly one for winter 2013. I have heard they don't allow dogs, is that right?

We are in the process of changing the rv for a smaller tag axle & just managed to change my profile picture. Hopefully turning in/out will not cause a problem. I shall be intouch with Pedro before we travel.
