    Does anyone have any information on camp sites for large motor homes in either Croatia, Solevina, hungary ie east of Austria for the month of February. Ski accident might be meaning we have to move on. We have a cayman 36 foot and towing a small car.

    Kind Regards

    Not sure which sites are open at this time of year, sorry (most of ones we have visited can take larger rigs though).

    Just one thing to be aware of: in both Slovenia and Hungary you will need a vignette ticket which were pricey even for our 7m van.:thumb:

    A pity you are in these countries when most sites will be closed as I stayed at an excellent site in the west of Slovenia last year, Campingplatz Radovljica (N 46.34771° E 14.17236°) situated on the outskirts of the small quiet town of Radovljica. Very pleasant and peaceful. Anywhere west in Slovenia is very nice and attracts most of the tourism.....drive east and it's an entirely different place with poverty as a stark contrast.

    Lake Balaton is the place to head for in Hungary. The largest lake in Europe it feels like you are at the sea rather than by a lake. Loads of sites all round the edge of Balaton but I doubt any will be open at this time of year.

    Hungary is strange. Being the first communist country to open its border up before the Berlin wall fell, unlike other ex-eastern bloc countries it still retains some of its communist quirkiness. If you stop on any sites in Hungary you will be given a ream of 'official forms' to fill in with some pretty daft and pointless questions. One question I found amusing was at what time and date did I cross the border into Hungary......so I just wrote 1400hr 3m and 25 secs! :RollEyes: But Hungary was where I experienced my cheapest meal......ever!

    An absolutely superb cheeseburger with fresh baked roll, side salad and chips, two coffees and one large beer.......£1.50. :Eek!:
    I am still convinced to this day I must have been under charged!
