    Quinto do Sobreiro country park Silves.
    We are at present on a beautiful new rural site 3 km west of Silves. It has room for about 30 vans at 3 €and 2.5€ for EHU pn. There is a small bar / restraurant ,swinmming pool ( if you are brave enough ), also a 3 bed villa part of which contains toilet, shower and washing machine which during winter months can be used by campers.
    I can't believe the quality of this place for the money. Well worth a visit .
    The English owner is in the process of building a website as we speak .

    Now you'r confusing us, is the one you are at not the one I posted?

    There are so many springing up in Portugal I find it keeps me busy trying to update my maps.

    On trying your co-ordinates Google didn't like them, but if you are East of Silves it must be a different one.

    Try google map search in this format:

    N37 12.168 W 008 24.248

    I got a site near Silves and the address:

    EM1152 224T
    8300 Silves, Portugal ‎ 398 m E

    I hope I am not confusing everybody as well :thumb:

    I did the same and came up with the same answer, but also another point in a field showing decimal co-ords. 37.202800, -8.404133.

    I guess we will have to wait for the web site for directions.

    I think the simple answer is to ask the owner for the correct map details as we went today and there is no way the site we looked at was rural on the settings above as it was along side a supermarket and packed with only 5/6 spaces left..........

    John Just read this over on the other forum "On the N124 5 km East of Silves with normal MH sign"

    I was wrong with the one I thought it was which is West of Silves but the OP was wrong when he said West and later corrected himself

    Yes mate we went to the one today you pointed me at, however that us not the one. Fingers crossed the OP will get correct "cords" from owner as I have found a few references to this place some with pictures, but none with correct directions. No wonder the there is no one staying!!!!!!!:Doh:

    David, we "recced" on our scooter today and failed without the correct "cords" it's like looking for a needle in a hay stack. What is Lidel do you mean Lidi's - the simple answer is to ask the owner for "cords" for GPS as he/she must know as I would hope he/she is putting them on his/her web site.

    More than happy to support a new site if I could find it....:RollEyes:

    Keith, have no bothered as not moving until middle of January so loads of time and "Pedro's Place" is spot on. :Wink:
    I know a picture paints a thousand words, but a grid reference is worth it's weight on gold........
