    Hi folks,
    Hello to everyone.
    Just joined the site.

    My partner and I have just bought a 2007 Hymer Camp 644G. We hope to go down to Portugal sometime this March and stay for about a month. We will probably use Aires on the way stopping off at a friends on the Portugese Spanish border for a few days.
    We will probably start off from Dover/Calais.

    Does anyone know of any reasonably priced camp sites in Portugal that also take dogs?

    Anyone heading that way that might want to travel together?

    Wot cheer Bonney lad. Welcome to the mayhem called fun.:welcomefunster::party2::france:
    We are in France at the moment at Parc Verger near Limoges, they allow dogs, and apart from the incessant rain it's a lovely stop off on the way south or north.

    Hi, and welcome.

    I would suggest you obtain an ACSI book fir 2014.

    They are available from www.vicariousbooks.co.uk and before you buy, you can read all about it on the website.

    It covers the whole of Europe, ans states if dogs are accepted. Fees are €12/14/16 per night including a least 6amp ehu.

    I hope this helps.:thumb:

    Agree with ACSI, but buy it direct from their website and also invest in their Camping Carnet - just a few euros. With respect to Vicarious, it's somewhat cheaper and if you subscribe annually you get it before they do...

    But DO use Vicarious and get a copy of All the Aires Spain and Portugal. Lots of good sites in there with all the info you need. There are other publications about as well but these should be enough to start you off.

    We're currently in Southern Spain but heading to Portugal next week for a few weeks.

    Terry

    hi jetjem. we’re in an apartment in Vilamoura at the moment. We went to check out the Orbitur campsite at Quarteira yesterday. They are doing a 10 night offer for €99 at the moment. They allow dogs and it’s a short walk to a nice beach. The site has lots of trees on it and the toilet/shower blocks were basic but clean. Across the road there is a fenced off hardstanding area with quite a few motorhomes on it. It’s €2 per night, €2 for 100 litres of water and €2 for ehu, but you vacate onto some waste land next door on Wednesday to allow a market to take place.

    Hi from some Geordies.

    There is a member on here called Pedro-something who has a campsite in Portugal, looks like a nice place, we fancy visiting there next year.

    If you search for Pedro should bring it up.

    Thanks for the Info

    Thanks to everyone for the welcomes and positive information, brilliant. It's exactly what we wanted we will be following up the guides and campsite information.
    I might pinch that avatar!

    I have driven to SW Bulgaria several times mostly with a car and once with my LDV self build MH, it's always been an experience :Eeek:. We have a house there near Kyustendil and family living there. We hope to use the new next year to travel there and then continue on down to Greece for the winter and then return via the Adriatic and Italy.
    I will post near the time just in case anyone fancies a trip out.

    Again thanks for the tips they really are appreciated.

    Eddie & Rosie
