I have just driven past the above mentioned "aire"

There is a good reason it is €3 a night!

It is on the N125. I mean on it... not near it!

One of the busiest roads in Portugal.

It looked like a flat, square piece of ground with a load gravel spread out on it.

However I will definitely use it when needed to drop my black and grey water and pick up a tank of fresh.

I am now at the recently started Council park up/aire in Alvor.

€4 a night with water and waste disposal... nice and quiet and 100 yards from the beach.

The money goes to the council so it might help a tiny bit.

Electricity on its way.

Photos tomorrow.

JJ :cool:

PS. My people tell me the "cafe: mentioned in the OP is none other than the Bus Cafe from the Praia da Rocha Marina park up.

JJ - Is the Marina closing permanently?

Shame if it does as it's a good location.
People are still parked at the Marina carpark. No one is collecting money.

The water is still connected (€2 for 100 litres)

Rumours fly around!

The land/car park has changed hands.

New people take over on Wednesday.

No one seems to know for sure.

Talk of court cases, unpaid taxes, big wigs in Lisbon... all gossip.

Don't know co-ords... sorry but...

Drive to Alvor and follow the signs to the Praia. You really cannot miss it!


Now...

Just to confirm details given by Euroliner in OP and to post photos of the new site on the N125 between Guia and Pera.

I have a theory about who is behind this site but it would be mere rumour!

The man running it is Nuno.

20141101_153105.jpg

It has large, marked pitches on tarmac...

20141101_153151.jpg

The site is right on the N125 and has considerable traffic noise.

20141101_153114.jpg

There is wifi (4mbs+ when tested).
Electricity and water all included in the price of €3 per night at least until December when the water might have to be paid for.
It has a drive over facility for rufty tufty black water tank emptying as well as the usual woosy cassette one.

It is 4kms from English sausages, bacon, rib eye steaks etc at the Icelend supermarket.

There is a small accessory shop at the entrance run by Mario...

If you get one of the pitches furthest away from the road you get a decent view...

This post has taken me quite some time and I have pies ready to cook...

I might remember other details later but now I need FOOD.

I am an ex-trucker as well and when we stayed at this site in February it seemed very much like a truck stop,with portacabin toilets and showers. The two nights we were there the rain was torrential, so glad to be parked on concrete. There was no cafe bus there then.
Parking is €3 electric €2 shower€2 dump and refill 150litres €5.50.
There is also a washing machine which I think was €3.50
Didn't have a problem with traffic noise, perhaps drowned out by the rain drumming on the roof lol
