Hi All

Didn't know whether to post this in cycling walking or wildlife as it includes a bit of everything.

We have now been a week at Camperstop Sierra Espuna near Totana(Spain), lots of people use this great camperstop as a one night stopover BUT if you are remotely interested in the "great outdoors thing" you really need to stop longer, and the longer you stop the more you find to do. Martin and Judith who live on site during the winter months are keen walkers and cyclist and have left some good routes in the little shower and wash area so it is really easy to get out and explore. You can do completely flat cycle rides up or down the canal right through to some quite extreme mountain biking and 700 metres climb road rides up in the Sierra Espuna national park, and that's not mentioning the walking which we have only done one but there are tracks every where.

Then you have the birds and general wildlife, we were just sat outside sunning ourselves this morning and an immature Golden Eagle flew right over the site giving me the chance to get some slightly grainy photos.

All in a great camperstop, bring plenty of food and drink as you don't want to waste your energy pedaling the provisions 2 miles uphill from the supermarket when you can be out in the mountains.

We discovered this site last winter (could not make it this year)

Martin n Judith adopted us and took us on a long walk to the secret valley where we saw the golden eagles.

The owners Ankhal and Paula are a lovely couple!

We will return next winter!!!

Have to agree it really is worth more than a nights stop, we stayed in January and hoped to call on our return, but the miles and time did not fit for us this time, we had some great bike rides and walks there and the added bonus of Judith and Martins hospitality, makes it a little gem.

Well worth a visit.

Hi Ken n Steph

This young Golden Eagle came right over the site so possibly it was looking for you.

We tried to do one of Martins bike rides today on the tandem but after about 6 miles steady uphill and 500 metres of climbing we still had 300 to go to make the round trip but we turned around so will have to come back when we are a bit fitter.
