Campsite reviews – Aimed at Motorhomers

Hi to all you motorhomers out there (and caravaners, but being motorhomers ourselves we know what they need :); well we know what we want/need and suspect many will have similar wants)…

Back in the UK having spent 10 weeks at the beginning of 2017 travelling through Spain and Portugal, and having visited France a couple of times, we thought some campsite reviews would be in order.  We visited 20 sites this year in Spain and Portugal so please bear with me as I get my thoughts down!

Knowing what’s important to us we are going to use a set format to complete, with key questions (access, pitch, facilities etc.) + the description set up under ‘The good, The bad and The ugly’.

Before I start I should say that I have already done a couple reviews which aren’t under this format but all that I write from now on will be.

Please feel free to comment with your own views of any campsites I review that you have also visited – it’s quite possible we’ll have differing views!

Just a bit of background information on our set-up then:-

We are Mandi and Calvin and we have a 2012 Bessacarr E769, 8.56m long and 2.3m wide.  We have been using the ACSI book together with the Caramaps App for our travels this time (2022) and have found both invaluable.

We also use an Aguri SatNav  although we are very disappointed to find that having owned this for about 5 years updates are no longer available.

The featured image for this page is at Los Modriles, Isla Plana just south of Cartegena, one of our favourite sites.

And, of course, if you find the campsite reviews helpful you might enjoy our blog cataloguing our travels!

Happy travelling 🙂

La Fuente, Banos de Fortuna. We weren’t warned that no electric meant being put in the Car Park and paying the same price (28Euros including the swimming pools)….
