I agree Bill we usually go through the tunnel but when you add fuel costs and extra travelling time it don't make sense. I think we will go from Portsmouth to Santander. Not to worried about the grief in Calais as I think the immigrants have already toured spain

my tunnel is already done for this year but the return will be bilbao or santander was gonna change try for refund from tunnel and get the ferry but going out on the 27th dec is near twice the price they want for the return end of feb start of march

Camperstopsierraespuna is closed from end of April until 1st November, with a client base mainly made up of northern Europeans wintering in Spain it does not make sence to remain open during the summer months. Spanish motorhomers flock to the coast in search of sea breeze and shade. Opening times for the camperstop will be relaxed nearer the opening date, if we or our neighbours are at home then if you want to arrive, then please do so, you won't be turned away. The period of closure allows us to take our holidays without the need to have someone around for the odd €7 per night, and most of the summer weeks can go by without a single visitor. Wintertime is a totally different scene, we have many nationalities who have supported the camperstop and in return we have provided them with even more facilities, the new shower and washing machine has been a fantastic success, a WiFi power increase now avoids the blackspot we were experiencing. Hope to see you this wintertime.

Interesting thread for me I live in Alhama de Murcia ( 10 mins from Totana Camperstop) so keen to see were you all go for Winter?
Not far from you at La Manga, did the bike ride down your local mountain last year. Out of 20 pensioners only one fell off.

Sierra Espuna great for Biking Kayaks, Water Rapids , Quad bikes etc recommend Hotel Mariposa at Gebas (follow road to Pleigo and Mula from Alhama de Murcia) (look it up on internet) great deals for all sorts of activities including Music themed nights and Hotel accommodation etc it is even possible if all rooms booked to park Motorhome close by and sleep it off. Mark the proprietor and his team go out of their way to the customers . Great value.
