    Hi
    As newbies to this forum, and motorhomes we are off to Spain for May.
    So far booked a few sites through the usual channels, but have a 10 day gap where we want to visit Seville and Cordoba.
    So far have found the municipal site in Cordoba but nothing much around Seville.
    So my question is, would any of you recommend a Book containing the Aires and Camp stops in Spain, or do you know of a fantastic site we could use ? If possible we want to walk, or cycle into the centre.
    Have seen a couple of books so far, bit confused over the choice.
    any advice, comments and travel advice most welcome.
    regards
    LC

    For Seville try this one:
    There is an aire in Seville which is by the river and walking distance from the city centre. This is a designated area in a fenced and guarded compound where new cars are stored. Water, grey water and cassette emptying. Free wifi. I can't remember the cost but I think it was 12euros.
    Sevilla 41011
    Area de Autocaravanas de Sevilla
    Avenida Garcia de Morato
    N 37.36306 W -5.99462 C

    Hope that helps

    We used the Cordoba municipal site last autumn and it does the job. Unless you're avid walkers you'll probably want to catch the bus to the town centre. If so, use the service that stops closest to the campsite (across the road). There's a second service that picks up a bit further down the road but its stops are confusing.

    For Seville we used Camping Villsom in the suburb of Dos Hermanas, which others on here have recommended. There's a regular bus service to the city centre that picks up about 10 minutes' walk from the campsite gate and drops off just behind the site. The area is built up and beside a major road, and the campsite has a wall around it so don't expect calm rural vistas if you go there, but it is handy. Don't trust SatNav directions for this one - our TomTom got it completely wrong. Its actual location is 37.277290, -5.936973 (Ctra. Isla Menor)

    There's a basic aire in Seville beside the river but I don't think there's much shade and it can get bloody hot down there. The city is very well served with bike tracks and lanes if you like your cycling, and there's bike hire available.

    You may find you've seen everything of interest in Cordoba in a day or two. We took in most of the historic highlights in a single day. For Seville allow longer - it used to be Spain's capital so it has more to offer. I'd suggest 3 days minimum for sightseeing.

    I don't know if Granada's on your itinerary but don't expect too much of the city - once you've seen the Alhambara (book tickets well in advance) and trudged up through the Albaiyzin it's basically a modern shopping centre. We were there four days and it was too long for us. While you're down that way Ronda is worth a look.

    There's an aire on the outskirts of Seville at the marina. Basically park up on the breakwater, room for about 10 vans. You need to press the buzzer to get access. Bus stop on the main road 15mins direct to centre. Couple of bars, restaurants but it's in the suburbs so nothing posh.
    Get the "All the Aires Spain and Portugal" from Vicarious. We use it all the time.

    Well great posts thank you so much, its difficult to decide how long you need at each stop.
    Very sound advice.
