    Hi everyone we are setting off on our adventure tomorrow sailing to Santander & plan to travel through Spain & Portugal. We have pre booked some sites en route but we are struggling to find small friendly family run sites on the Silver coast between Lisbon & Porto. There's seems to be a lot of Orbitor sites & reviews on these sites are not very good. Can anyone recommend any sites or stopovers along this coast. Many Thanks & any advice much appreciated.

    CamperContact will find you what Aires there are but I suspect campsites on the Atlantic coast will be closing around now. As suggested, the ACSI book will tell you what is open.

    Should be good up to mid October

    Had some great experiences at Miro Obitur http://www.orbitur.com/campsite-orbitur-mira

    Extremely helpful wardens, ran us into town for meal (no charge) and good pitches. Beach was great

    Alternatively, Castello do Bode, Parque Campismo http://www.campismo.info/pt/parque-de-campismo-de-castelo-bode/2828/

    Helpful wardens, only 500 watt power (2 A!), nice pool, exceptional views over lake and dam, near to Tomar & Fatima e15/night

    Or for the beach, Sao Martino Parrque de Campismo Baia Azul http://www.campismo.info/pt/parque-de-campismo-de-castelo-bode/2828/

    Not stayed there but driven past many times. Not that busy now, good area, but plenty of wild camping in the area

    Safe travels

    Hi Funsters. We are on the Orbitur site outside of arveiro & thinking of visiting tomorrow. Can anyone suggest anywhere to park the Mh close to the centre. We are then moving on to Villa Cha near Porto any advice gladly welcomed.
    Many Thanks

    We will be crossing from Seville in May (as seperate post) so any info would be appreciated.
    We like to park the 'van at the campsite and use local transport or cycle so anything relative would be appreciated.
    Cheers
