    To many Norwegians/Scandinavians:D..Plus everything twice the price of Benidorm. Nice town though, cycle over there a lot and they have a Lidl:love:

    Not quite convinced everything twice the price !! We were getting 3 course meals for €5.00 from the local Chinese and the beer was very cheap in the local sports bar and with free Tapas. Clearly, could not compare with Beni but depends on what your seeking I guess. As for the Norwegians/Scandinavians, I found them to be an OK people.

    I now see the logic in your post. You're trying to ensure there is a space for you at Villasol. Very clever :wink:

    Hi Graham, Not doing Villasol in 2015. Planning to visit Moroc this time around. I guess your gearing up for that 'Long Drive' again soon.
    Have a safe journey and look forward to sharing a beer with you in the future.

    Probably not down there ourselves Philip. Hope to move house in the next three weeks. May fly down for a couple of weeks.
    Enjoy your travels and look forward to catching up (y)

    Am I looking at the right site? it says its €41.50 a night? am I being a tightwad or is that not a bit high for overwintering?. Not being cynical BTW new to the game and genuine in my enquiry. Cheers

    I do not believe you are looking at the right site ! Perhaps your looking at the right site via a booking agent who will have his add on's. When we stayed in 2012 we were paying €13.00 per night plus a bit extra for metered electricity. Like most campsites in that area the longer you stay the bigger the discount. I would be surprised if you were asked to pay more than €17.00 per night if staying for a month or more, in 2015.

    Easy tiger!lol I did in my first post...the town is full of scandinavians with restaurant menus and events to attract them, the prices reflect their deepeer pockets. + "€24.50 a night" is twice what most pay in Benidorm

    Don't want to make an issue with you over this but you did not make that statement on your first post ! What you said was and I quote.'To many Norwegians/Scandinavians:D..Plus everything twice the price of Benidorm. Nice town though, cycle over there a lot and they have a Lidl'

    Perhaps you have submitted a post that I am unable to see and if so I stand corrected, otherwise the error is yours me old fruit pastel.
