    Fellow snowbirds - we would like to spend a good portion of November and December in the Costa Blanca area of Spain. Basing ourselves around Calp, Altea or somewhere between there and Moraira, or up as far as Denia. Our reasons for wanting to be around that area is so we can take some good long cycling trips in land to Castell de Castells, Guadalest, and a few places I have fort ton the names of, routes which I used to cycle many years ago. Legs willing we hope to come away a good deal fitter than we are now.

    Counter productive to the above - I would also like a good site on the coast, preferably where they may be a few Funsters staying to enjoy a good
    Christmas and New Years knees up.

    I realise I may be booking a site a bit late for the Christmas period but believe me, this is forward planning for me!!

    Any suggestions or recommendations will be gratefully received.

    Look no further than Benidorm where there will be Funsters a'plenty celebrating the festive season.

    Yes,we hope to be at Villasol, Sandra. There will be Funsters on both the El Raco and La Torreta sites as well. Once we arrive in Benidorm we will try to keep others updated on pitch availability.

    Sounds good. I think the sites in Beni will be too central for us as a main winter base, don't fancy cycling out through the busy streets all the time, but we could stay out at Calp and then just book a few days to cover Christmas and New Year on which ever Beni site folks are on.

    You are correct there Sue. Villasol is not pet friendly. La Torreta and El Raco are.

    Ah! That would be a problem then.

    Didn't someone put up a thread a little while ago about a new aire in Calp. I have done a search but not finding it, may be I imagined it.

    That may well be Odissea Camper Park Sandra. I believe that there is now another aire near to it.

    Hercules closed in 2003 but I think a site has reopened on the same area.

    We were intending to go to Benidorm for Christmas and New Year, my daughter, son in law and 2 year old grandson fancy having a Christmas away somewhere warm, they do not have a Motorhome, but don't think Benidorm , either hotel or caravan rental would be suitable, anybody got any ideas, don't mind flying somewhere or being persuaded that Benidorm would be suitable.

    Cheers Simon
