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.

We have solar panels so it didn't matter. There was a maze of quaint streets with local ...
