    Thought I'd share this excellent video with you all. It's taken by a fellow camper who is here for the first time and has fallen in love with the place.
    Note our camper parked near reception and the view of the large pitch with the caravan and awning (and numerous tables and chairs!) That's ours too
    :LOL:

    Impetuous yoof,

    You have to Slow Down round here, you are in Olde Farte territory.

    Lady Penelope is an artist, they don't cope well with new technology.

    First time her mobile phone rang she served Sir Rex half cooked boiled eggs then answered the egg timer.

    Marie .... I am supposed to officially retire in 11 years (Oh Dear!) if I want full pension (still very very low ... about 700 euros if lucky... which will be half of the actual 700 euros by the time...boohoo!) Can you please book a pitch for me (27 oct 2026...I think:D) so I know I'll retire in a decent place ...please... Well if JJ allows that is:whistle::rolleyes: !

    Retiring on a paying campsite + JJ.

    You are the Ultimate Ninja Frog Optimist. If JJ reads this it may finish him off.

    Excellent!
    Thanks Penny, often wondered about and fancied this place for winter. A really good video with no B/S and just showing it as it is.
    Really tempted.........but
    I wonder about the weather on that side of Spain in the winter?
    Everyone always says that the Med side is warmer and having had one winter in Calpe and another in Totana/Mazarron, I cant help but wonder if the winter weather is good enough on that side?
    What's your thought?

    Well not quite, after his first camera and it's tripod were last seen heading for Cadiz as he tried to film The Storm with Jaws tying his Smart to a tree to save it, he vowed to film only on the good days with his new one, equipped with an anchor. I do admire his patience.

    I said in 11 years time.... things might change a bit.... It might be nice to have friends around...! He might just the same be outside the barrier .... he'll still be outside and free and not too far!;):p:cool:

    Oh we can be sure of that, don't count out the second Moorish occupation of southern Spain.

    Well we have great weather usually - bit cold this year but so is the Med!
    What we do have is real Spanish Spain - not Brit Spain.Yes there are quite a lot of Brits here but we don't hanker after Brit life with sunshine. You won't find a pint of John Smiths anywhere!
    Very natural scenery and very green - we don't have brown hills and plastic fields! The fields around us are used for vegetables for local use and grazing for the beautiful Retinto cattle. No Tesco/ Asda production around here. What is grown we eat!

    We have a great social life with plenty of live music both on and off site. All our activities are organised by ourselves - it's not Butlins in Spain ;)

    SO if you fancy trying it you'd be more than welcome. Some people come and hate it - others come and love it. It's a Marmite site.

    Just telling it like it is so the Benidorm lovers don't waste their time coming here. ;)

    No bikes - don't do that sort of thing and no washing machines - the campsite ones are too good to need my own ;)

    In your dreams pal ;)

    If you had you'd be needing more than a puncture repair kit now. Hell of a way to go though.
