    We all know the aires in France are excellent and extensive.
    What are they like in spain?

    Intend going to Almeria and Granada area in June on a property hunt and as it's gonna costa lot :)LOL:) to drive down there and want to move about just wondered what the Aires situation was?

    Have the acsi book but keen to minimise site use but am not a 'freeloading tosser' !!!

    Is the all the aires spain book any good?

    Yes we have the book used last year and bought again for this year, not as many places as France but enough for the money, worth buying it also includes Portugal, so depending on your route may be useful.

    Here ya go..
    http://www.lapaca.org/es/areas-de-servicio

    It's in Spanish but easy enough to work around..
    Stayed at a few of the free one's that have been on a par with France for facilities.
    Free parking, dump and water etc.

    More do seem to be springing up but also many near the coast are private and some can be almost as much as a campsite..

    Another vote for camperstop.
    The main book for us now. A lot of quiet 'out of the way' type camping places.

    In addition to the books/suggestions mentioned above we sometimes utilise the facilites at the Shell, BP and Repsol service stations overnight. On the main routes, as they cater for the HGVs many have showers of which some are free, others 2 euros. They are happy for you to overnight so we always have coffee and toast in the associated cafe before setting off in the morning.

    Oh God, The Alhambra and the Generalife .... well worth every penny (or peseta when I went!) not to mention the lunch in the Parador next door LOL

    Water flowing uphill sans pumps ......

    Should be on every person's 'Bucket List' IMHO.

    Breathtaking.

    We are off to Spain in May and have been looking for sites so all of this information is invaluable, thank you all.
    Going to buy the camperstop book now ! Have already booked the Alhambra visit, can't wait.
    This forum is Soooooo useful, very glad I joined.

    Another one worth looking at is the Dutch app Camper Contact there is a free version but less than £5 for the full version, uses that more than all the aires book
