Ferragudo – Portugal.

Posted on November 3, 2014

Ann and I decided to move away from the Aire at Praia Da Rocha and let the rumours about the Aire closing die down. We had always seen other Motorhomes parked on a beach across the water near a little fishing village. So we decided to go and park there for a night and see how it felt!! We moved with another 2 vans belonging to Dennis and Janine, and, Mark and Theresa (apologies for any misspellings), who became good friends of ours. ...

Praia Da Rocha – Portimao – Portugal.

Posted on November 1, 2014

We arrived back to Praia Da Rocha two days before Shaun was due to leave to fly back to the UK to pick up his truck and drive off to do some work in Europe for the next 10 days!! I was not going to be alone. I had my friends here that I had made in April who lived in the Marina and Ann, Shaun's mum was due to fly out to me the day after Shaun left. The weather was wonderful, I think I saw Jäger smiling that first day we took him back to ...

Monchique – Portugal

Posted on October 21, 2014

Shaun and I really liked this Aire it is situated in the mountains not far from Portimao, there was a calm/tranquil atmosphere about the place. It is a commercial Aire for motorhomes only. It is owned by a Portugees family. It was €12.00 a night, that was for electric, hot showers, water and WIFI. All the pitches are marked out and all have water points, as well as their own fold away tables. The place was kept spotless. ...

Sarges – Portugal

Posted on October 19, 2014

We parked above the beach for free on a gravel piece of land, with about 11 other motorhomes. There were no facilities just fantastic views looking out to sea. There was a great fish restaurant right next to the piece of land. The Portugees fish soup was Delicious. But we have since been told that the authorities of Sagres have now put signs up not permitting motorhomes to park on this piece of land or on the lower section during the ...

Mins De Sao Domingos – Portugal

Posted on October 18, 2014

We were told about this Aire by an English couple that we met in Ampudia. We were told it was another must place to visit in Portugal, a hidden gem that is not in any of the Aire books as yet. It is a free Aire in an old mining village. We have been told that the Aire is only open to Motorhomers during the winter months as it is right by a man made lake with a small beach and probably gets too busy with locals. There were toilets at ...
