    Just wondered if anyone knew of sites in spain where you can then leave your caravan in cheaper storage? I.e camp for 3 weeks on a full pitch, then leave in storage for a month, then come back… ideally in galicia!

  2. Harry says:

    Interesting, thanks. Would like more information on
    where you can and cannot “wild camp” in Europe,
    what restrictions there are
    the areas where “motor homes are welcome to park up overnights.”

      Hi Harry,

      Thanks for getting in touch.

      If you’re planning to wild camp, keep in mind that the laws in Europe can be different than the UK, where wild camping is generally tolerated. Click here for a list of wild camping spots in Spain. Each site will have its own set of restrictions, click on the links for further details.

      Many thanks

    I am surprised that whilst this article mentioned the extended european insurance cover it did not also emphasise that Caravan & Camping also offer an extended period of home insurance whilst you are away in Spain.

      Hi David, thanks for getting in touch. I’m afraid we aren’t able to comment on the cover provided by other insurance providers. Regards,

    Love Spain-El Delphin Verde just over the French/Spanish Border on Med coast-BRILLANT. always get ferry from Portsmouth to Caen or St Malo-720 miles approx to site- use mo torways-not the cheapest way but the quickest. French m/ways are good just abide to the Laws regarding speeds etc Go on give it a try you won’t be disappointed-Trust Me!

    Went to Bonterra Park, Benicassim this past Dec/Jan/Feb with motorhome. Been there 7 yrs before. Still a good site, with decent size pitches, ease of access, ample facilities. e.g toilets, showers, fresh water standpipes, waste disposal points. On site restaurant extremely good value, supamarket acroos the street, others 1 mile away in town. Sea front 1 and half away. Small welcoming town with many festivals depending on season. Very helpful staff and multi cultural.

    We have booked to go told bale a Alegre in Costa brava. Do you have any information on this site.

    • Lucie @ Caravan Guard says:

      Hi Jane,

      Many thanks for getting in touch. We don’t know too much about camping facilities in that area, but one of the popular sites, Camping La Ballena, has received some great reviews on Trip Adviser which does suggest good things for the area and its facilities. See here for details.

      Many thanks
