    Decided to head to Silves today and we are very surprised to find the new aire (nearest the town) closed for business.

    There's about 10 vans parked up in the car park (previously known as freeloading HQ ;) ), so we've joined them for the night and we will see what happens.

    Does anyone know why they've closed it?

    Afraid I am in my summer quarters at the moment, 450 kms from Silves, but will get onto my people asap.

    Alternatively Ven could send Dave (or Les) the few yards to the Tourist Information Centre and ask them...

    Sorry for delay in responding but I have been up and down the motorway on Magic Festival Artists Delivery To Airport Duties.

    JJ :cool:

    No.

    I am retired.

    I reckon the two guys running the new Silves site are having a break before it starts to get busy...

    Just a possibility.

    Thanks

    They had a delivery of pipe today, maybe they are going to do some work before the winter season kicks off. They do not appear to be moving anyone off the other car park on a daily basis but I'm sure they will if people stay too long.

    It's the town one near the swimming pool. The AlvorMotorhomepark past Continente is still open. Apparently the other one should be open for the main winter season.

    Update (as of today) re the above Aire at Silves.
    The 'new' Aire next to the swimming pool is open for business. As of today they have not got any lecky. The owner? told me that it will be switched on in the next few days.
    ATM Prices, 5€ per day with a free 2 days per one week stay.ie €25 for the first week. It is proposed that there will be a 2.50€ charge per day for lecky when it arrives.

    In addition, the Alvarve Aire nr. to Continente supermarket is charging 7€ for first night but that reduces to 6€ thereafter (including the first night, ie 18€ for three days. There is a charge of 2.50€ for lecky and the showers are 50 cents for 5 mins..
