    Looking for suggestions re routes Bilbao - Arena Blanca, Benidorm
    Wondering whether to go via Madrid - Alicante and come in from the south
    or via Zarragoza - Valencia and come in from the north
    Don't want to drive much more than 250 - 300 miles a day so looking for an overnight on route
    Also not keen on mountaineering in the van !
    Any advice appreciated.
    Pat

    We do Zarragoza. There is a municipal campsite there.

    If you decide on Madrid there is a campsite about 15-20 miles north Camping Pico de miel at La Cabrera which is just off the motorway.

    We used AP68 to zarragosa about €32, then onto A23 with an overnight stop in carrinena (leave main A23 drive thru town) there's a petrol stn, hotel & truck stop on right side, a few funsters have used this stop over, then Ap7 to Beni about €13, just under 500 miles.

    We use the Zaragossa route when traveling down to Benidorm.
    Overnight stop is at the service area at Sobradiel on the AP68
    just a few miles before you reach Zaragossa. We have been
    overnighting there for the past three years without any problems.
    Brisey.
