    We are lucky enough to be be sailing from Hull to Rotterdam on Boxing Day , then a drive down to the south of Spain. SWMBO has to fly back on a couple of occasions, work gets in her way....however in February she is flying back with our granddaughter for 2 weeks.
    She is 5, I mean the granddaughter , and we would like , or should I say she would like a campsite with a pool, somewhere between Malaga and Alicante..is this possible..

    As always thanks in advance..

    Most pools in Spain are to cold at this time of year, however there is a camp site that has heated pools. We have stayed there when we first got our MH and whilst needing updating it is good enough. Link:

    Most of the campsites have pools, the outdoor ones are not normally heated but some of the bigger sites have indoor pools.

    Don't think I'm speaking out of turn but ensure your wife has some means of proving relationship with the grandchild.

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/travel-advice/10049019/Children-travelling-with-grandparents.html


    "
    Travelling with children
    You may be asked at the border to prove the relationship between yourself and any children travelling with you, if you don’t seem to be the parent, eg if you have a different surname.

    You can prove this with:

    • a birth or adoption certificate showing your relationship with the child
    • divorce or marriage certificates if you’re the parent but have a different surname from the child
    • a letter from the child’s parent giving permission for the child to travel with you and providing contact details, if you’re not the parent "

    Thanks guz-Lopez, we have letters and signed copies of her parents passports giving us authorisation, with the specific dates.
    When we have taken her abroad in the past, we have been regularly asked for details, and sometimes they ask her.
    When this happens we are really pleased that the 'Border Agencies' are so thorough.

    Why 'google' something when you can type 'motorhomefun' and you get answers to the questions asked ???

    Although Villasol has an indoor heated pool it's quite small.
