    :Smile:Hi, has anyone stayed at Camping Alegria at Benicarlo? We were just wondering what it was like as they have a special offer discount for three month stays. Thought of going there in November if its ok. Is there any shops nearby?

    I have personally not stopped at Alegria but inspected the site last year for friends who eventually stayed for 3 months in an RV. The site is run by an English family and has limited space for tourers and quite a few mobile homes with a bar/restaurant on site, I think their web site has pictures. It is close to a shingle beach and Benicarlo is aprox half a mile, walkable and cyclable, a typical Spanish town. Peniscola is about 5 miles away and is much more touristy and can be reached by cycle or bus which can also be used to get to Vinaros in the other direction.
    We stop at Ribamar in Alcossebre but if this was unavailable we would definitely stay at Alegria but this is my view and everybody has different values.

    If you can't get in at Benicarlo try Peniscola and Camping El EDEN in particular..they have a website and offer good % discounts for longer stays..reasonably cheap Wi-Fi 25euros (ish) a month it's just 2 minutes walk to the sea..10 minutes walk on the flat into the town..we did 8/9 weeks there a couple of years ago and we enjoyed it...and we got a 40% discount!!!

    I wish my dear bride would ask that question, no matter where we go, near or far, she insists on filling the fridge and a big brown box with basics like milk eggs, bread, bacon etc. before we go. I tell her they do have shops in other parts of the world you know, ducks back and water come to mind!!
