Im travelling around Europe and would appreciate any tips on places to visit and campsites to stay at!!?
My parents have done a lot of travelling around SpainFrance with a camper van. For them personally the advantage of the camper van was to be able to go whereever/whenever and just drive, and then when they found somewhere nice to stop a day or to.
I'm not so familar with Spain so can't advise you places. One tip from them is to invest in a membership to a club such as the "The Caravan Club". http://www.caravanclub.co.uk/. Then you get discounts on some campsites and also a manual to take with you so that wherever you end up you can find a place to stay instead of roaming around looking for signs. The smaller basic sites (farms etc) are also listed as well as the ones with all the facilities, so you can choose what you want. For them (and I think in your case) it was definately worth the money.
