    I'll be staying in Turiscampo (Lagos) in Portugal next February / March but will need to fly out from Faro airport, returning 3 days later. Has anyone experience of leaving their van on the site for a few days? Any advice on getting to Faro airport would be welcome. Hiring a car may be the best option?

    I have been there and seems nice enough place and safe. I would think hiring a car would be the most convenient option may not be the cheapest but the most convenient.
    The site has its own security and barriers with office. Hope all ok

    We stayed on Touriscampo last February and hubby had to fly home due to a bereavement. I stayed with the van (and dogs) and felt very safe. He flew from Faro airport and got a taxi from Touriscampo to the train station in Lagos and then a short taxi ride from Faro train station to the airport.

    Stayed there several times and many people said they leave their vans there for long periods without a problem.
    One guy was from Luxembourg and said he leaves his van there for very long periods and flies down.
    Incidentally car hire is extremely cheap in Portugal.
    Hope this helps.
