    Hi new to the group and thought we would just say hello. We were wondering is there any fellow motorhome/expats living here in Southern Spain?

    As it would be nice to know where our nearest member is located.

    Look forward to hearing from you.

    Have spent a fair bit of my time down your way Cabopino and Fuengirola and I have friends down there.
    Ended up in the Orba Valley by chance. I like it here and have been here since February, which for a fulltimer is a long time.

    Near Madrid

    Hope to meet you sometime. We live 40km north of Madrid on the A6 at a village called Galapagar.
    Perhaps there are enough Funsters to have a Spanish meet. Perhaps during the winter.:winky:
    Any suggestions?

    Winter meet

    Hola Amigos,

    We live up in the mountains about 45 mins north west of Granada. Olive groves and not much else as far as the eye can see - and beyond. Been here 5-years now.

    We're intending to spend the winter months somewhere a little warmer than here in the mountains and yes, for those that don't know, it can get mighty cold here on winter nights. We've had some snow each winter we've been here although usually just a flurry. If a meet was organized we'd be interested.

    Adios.

    sounds like a good idea although we usually go back to the UK in the winter via the German christmas markets
    Do you have a link for this camp site ?

    meet

    The only link we have is www.campingaranjuez.com

    It is an ACSI campsite (cc). There are train and bus links to Madrid at the village (so we have been told).

    Stopped there in April. Nice simple site almost in the town. Quick walk to the Palace and many gardens. It certainly has a grand railway station. Nice place to stop.

    Only downside, not bike friendly, either poor roads or not allowed at all in the parks.

    Hi Unitedgirl

    On our travels to Barcelona we stopped off at Mojacar and really liked the area. Often pass through that way.
