    When we were in Calpe in March there was a new Aire/campsite being built opposite Lidl. Does anyone know if it is finished and when it is opening or even what it is called?

    Thanks

    Not Calpemar, the new one is opposite Lidls and extending down to the main dual carriageway. It doesn't show up on that aerial view, it is just spare ground according to that.

    It was being built in March and was quite far advanced then, I thought it might be finished in time for the influx of winter motorhomers.

    And that nice bike you are selling.....are those mud guards included.....Mud guards on a roadie....when do you see mud on roads, not where we ride. Good luck with the sale its worth a lot more.

    I am ashamed to say they are mud guards, I did a hell of a lot of miles on that bike, rain or shine. It took me through two Etape du Tours and a good few Sportives.

    We are currently at Camping Javea and heading to Calpe tomorrow, so will have nosy. Not sure where to stay in Calpe as we are 7.5m and CalpeMar (recommended on here) seems to have fairly small pitches. It was pretty tight at Javea. So might have to be an aire at Calpe.

    We usually stay at Paraiso Aire, used to be Odissea. If you see what's happening with the new one that would be great.

    We stayed at the Mediterranio camperstop and we are 8.3m. They have bigger pitches towards the back of the site. Nice showers too, plenty of freshwater taps around the site and a laundry room. Free WiFi near the office with a sitting room to use the WiFi.

    I have been to Calpe Mar in 7.5m and there was plenty of room, its a nice site so worth giving it a go.

    Just left Calpe and had a look at the development opposite Lidl whilst there, which didn’t seem to have advanced much beyond clearing and levelling the ground. I’m assuming its the Lidl that is very close to Odissea aire.

    In the end we stayed at Camping La Merced in Calpe which is just up the road from Mediterráneo Camper stop. Not acsi but was only €17pn and they had a couple of large covered plots available. Bit of ‘rustic’ rambling site with no pool, but pitches good for shade from the current very hot weather and quiet location if pitched away from road.

    We are currently at Camping lo Monte, in Pilar de la Horadada which is just south of Torrevieja. A really nice acsi site that I can thoroughly recommend.

    Look up Derek and Pat Staker, Autotrail Chieftain, he will have loads of flags up on 3 poles which he changes daily, yellow tennis balls on his awning pegs, and a pile of other stuff. Nice couple, say hi from Michael & Sally.

    I talked to the owner of Mediterraneo aire and he said they will be finished the winter of this year. 3 new Aires to be constructed he said. Around the area of Aldi.

    I think so, he said he was turning away more and more people so I reckon he'll be full on all of them come winter.

    And in other news, the owner of Mediterraneo invited us to the Bar for our last night at the site to buy us a drink before we leave.

    I applaud that man's forward thinking in keeping his customers loyal.

    In addition punters have no need to huddle in the office to get WiFi. It's free and beamed throughout the whole site.
