    We are giving it some very serious thought, but cant decide were to go. It's not that I dont like xmas but I just like the idea of going away.

    No definite plans made as yet, but, if circumstances permit we could well be parked up on an aire de service between Xmas and New Year. :thumb:

    Brugge in Belgium? Thats one of our favourite places and apparently they have lovley Christmas markets.
    This will be the first time in 10 years we have been in GB for Christmas and I'm rather looking foward to it, though we're not really Christmas type of people and I'm not thinking of doing anything appauling with a Turkey, I am looking foward to some of the traditions.
    However, christmas day in the MH somewhere, that does appeal. Will have to speak to the dearly beloved!

    Hi the trouble with France is it's frezing cold, and most of the aires and garages they turn the water off, we are thinking Portugal January / Febuary as we went to back to Spain this year, and have not been to Portugal and we are looking forward to it.:BigGrin: Bob.

    France isn't always "freezing cold" in the winter, especially during the daytime! It's also (generally) a much drier cold than the UK, so doesn't feel so cold.

    Besides, unless you're planning on taking the very long sea-crossing to Spain, you've gotta pass through France on your way to Spain and Portugal:Wink:

    May sites stay open all year round, including ours; I know that many of the aires turn the water off in winter, but that's because they're un-manned. I'm sure if you asked in a garage, they'd turn water on for you "J'ai besoin de l'eau SVP"

    hello vanessa, i have bookmarked your website and if all goes well i will be passing through sometime in december......i will eventually end up in alvor and sagres in the western algarve. alvor was recommended to me by an irishman called bob who stays there every year! the campsite offers all facilities and after 7 days the price reduces by 50% so get the google working !:Eeek:

    I spent last Christmas in Cornwall near Newquay, it ws really nice and peaceful, and all those beaches were empty. I havn't made plans for this year yet, you've got me thinking now.

    I'm sure we have a lot of members that spend time in Southern Europe, at Xmas & over the winter. :thumb:

    Could we start a list of where members are going to be, so that if we find ourselves in a particular area we can look up who else is there? :BigGrin:
