    To remind you - Other Information:

    Manilva is situated as a base from which you can explore Andalucía, with its picturesque white towns and villages nestling in the region’s mountains, to its historic cities such as Seville, Malaga, Granada and Cordoba. Just a short hop across the Strait of Gibraltar from continental Africa, namely Ceuta and Morocco. Gibraltar (duty free) is a 30 minute drive. The nearest village is Manilva or the town of Puerto de la Duquesa both a few minutes' walk or cycle along the beach front.

    Price negotiated is €14 (Euro) a day per van, to include 1 or 2 people and includes electricity (16amp) and wifi. A calendar month can be negotiated once you are there if you so wish. A figure of €360 has been mentioned but electric will then be charged separately, so that will not be far off the €14 anyway.

    This is a pop 'in - out meeting.' there are no formal arrangements or travel plans. There is no commitment to stay the whole 3 weeks people can arrive at any point and stay as long or as short as they like. We are setting these weeks as a guideline to say that's when we are having the "do". Hopefully as we get nearer the time we can plan things to make sure everyone is fitted in. However, they are selling pitches for long stayers, so it cannot be ruled out that restriction on numbers will be applied. As already mentioned, we have an allocation of 30 spaces at present. Naturally, you can also come and go when you want and pay the normal site rates at times / dates that suit you subject to their availability in the event they do not agree to increase the numbers. Tonka and Mr Motorhome are in contact with Rudi (site manager) and will keep him informed.

    There is no commitment and no deposit, this is all being arranged with goodwill.

    Note: we have been told the weekend of 28th feb 2014 is 'Andalucía Day' a public holiday in this part of Spain (Malaga) and many sites will be very busy. This MotorhomeFUN gathering is to start on 5th - 25th March 2014 (three weeks)

    You can visit the La Bella Vista web site HERE for more details regarding the facilities and services, or HERE for the campsite rules.


    Co-ordinates are :> n36.20.46 w5.14.11 - Mapcode: (Spain) kv8.cnq - Gps: n36 20.771 w5 14.185

    Looking forward to seeing you all there! :Cool:

    Thanks, MrMotorhome (Andrew) for starting the update..

    Any questions. Please ask... We expect the site to get busier then when we visited in early 2013 and the 30 places could be our maximum. However, nearer the date we will know for sure...People also sometimes have to change plans so the members listed above 30 may still have a chance...

    We'll probably come for a few days but can't confirm dates yet - hell, I'm having a problem planning next week!!!:Wink::Wink::Wink:

    Just a thought though - make sure Rudi has everything up and running properly - keep on his back!
    We were there mid April for 3 nights - no wi-fi working at all! Everyone complaining to him but nothing happening - we know some long-termers there and they were furious!
    Infrequent bar/restaurant opening times - not as advertised!
    Not many people on site then either - less than when the Funsters were there!

    Hi Andrew, can you take us off the list, as we don't plan on going that far south at the moment, if we do we will take our chances on a pitch being available. :BigGrin:

    It will give someone else a chance to go. :thumb: Bob and Jane.

    Bill.. As you can see from the list.. There are enough to fill the allocated 30 pitches already but people are changing plans. I would add to list and you can always check nearer the date..

    I suspect some people may not attend for the whole 3 weeks as some could be passing through and having a "fun" stopover... Once we get closer to the time, Andrew and myself will try to arrange pitches and make the best use of them. We will do our best to get more pitches should the need arise..
