    Hi I'll try again......

    We are going from Santander to Albufeira this way....... Valladolid, Salamanca, Merida, Seville, Huelva, Faro and then Albufeira.

    Does anyone have some favourite campsites or aires on this route. We think our first stop will be near Valladolid, [about 150mls] then maybe Merida [ about 250mls] and then Albufeira [around 250 mls].

    We know the campsite in Albufeira.

    Will be in Santander around mid day on 21st dec and so hope to reach Albufeira on Wed 23rd Dec.

    We would appreciate any help on some good stops..... for an RV...

    Cheers

    Alice and George

    One that comes to mind and is a nice basic site is Camping Regio,, at Salamanca.

    There is a bus that runs from the site right into Salamanca which is a nice city to visit.

    Not sure of the opening times but have a check here..

    www.campingregio.com


    Spacious plots and not crowded,, if I remember right the charges were pretty reasonable,,
    cannot say if they are open all year but I think they may be.. hotel is nice for meals but a bit pricey,,

    Hope this helps.

    We stayed first at Hotel Regio campsite in Salamanca, then went into Portugal very close to there and then stayed at the Orbitur campsite in Evora another World Heritage City before moving to Camping Albufiera. Have a good Trip.

    We have done that route many times and have just done that now, out in September and back on November 14th.

    There is a very good aire in Palencia, very handy for the town and free.

    Camping Regio in Salamanca is ok for a stop being handy for the bus into town.

    There is a lovely free aire at Caceres which is 125 miles down from Salamanca. It has free electric and water and is very safe, it is set in a sports complex witht the gates shut ater 10pm, it is very handy for a walk into the old or new town.

    We used Palencia and Caceras this trip which are nicely placed for easy travel to Portugal.

    You will find good free aire at Castro Marim just across the border into Portugal and good wild camping at Altura but with no water etc but only 5 mins from Castro Marim.

    Probably the best wild spot on the Algarve is at Manta Rota where you can get water and empty your toilet waste, you will find a lot of other motorhomes there this time of year. It is a lovely little village where they are glad of the trade.
