    :thumb::BigGrin:Hi everyone,
    Is anyone going down to Portugal between Christmas and New Year and would like to travel together. We have never gone this far in the winter and are a bit dubious about it all. we have been told by other people Bordeaux, San Sebastian to Salamander and then down to Faro is the best route for the sun.

    Hope to hear from all interested

    Hi Steve and Judith,

    I spend every Christmas and New Year in the Eastern Algarve but I don't use sites (although there is a "brand new" one very near where I stay.

    My route is as you suggest... after Salamanca head for Portugal (new road practically finished) and just south of Guarda there is a new, free motorway all the way to Lisbon. From Lisbon to Faro there is a pay motorway but the "free" road is mostly pretty good.

    I will be in Portugal from Nov 7(ish) until the middle of March. PM me if you would like my contact number in case you need more info/help etc...

    JJ
