    hi,

    I wondered if any funsters were currently at this site? We tried unsuccessfully to find it today but would like to try again.

    Could someone tell us easy directions (avoiding low bridges - there's probably only one but we found it)?

    Also is there space at the moment?

    We've had a fun journey today, Castro Marim full, Road closed to Manta Rota, couldn't find Falesia. Fun and games ;)

    Thanks in advance :)

    Room at Silves most of the day (late morning seems best time to arrive), friendly locals including the council, very close to shops, restaurants, swimming pool, one of the best castles in Portugal, the local football ground AND a Burger Ranch!

    And of course... FREE.

    We found Falecia but decided not to stay due to caterpillars which could have been a threat to our dog. we are currently at Camping Albuferia, not the cheapest, but lots of space and nice place to hang out for a while

    Have you co-ordinates please? Any format as I have an app to convert them... lol.

    Thanks all. Falesia was to meet friends nearby, unfortunately I have had not had a reply from them yet.

    The caterpillars are always a worry, you have to be so vigilant if you have a dog :(

    Heard today that the caterpillars are out down at the coast. None up here which is good as they are very harmful to dogs.

    We are at Pedro at the moment we move on Sunday there is a couple of spaces here at the moment. We should have only been here for 3 nights but keep meeting funsters so it gets extended. Great place highly recommend.

    No, he has the box all ready and it's been inspected. Now waiting on electric people to run power cables and poles to site. Could take up to 7 years!
