    3 years ago the maroc tourist board reckoned 40,000 m,homes hit maroc between nov and april.
    just about all had to travel through spain . a few would sail there from france .
    even then spain was full of campers all winter .
    possible more than 40,000 m,.homes were still in spain .
    so see if you can find a quiet place.
    inland is quiet but in winter can be rainy and very deep in snow .
    the choice is yours .
    i,m told the algarve is the best place to be . might be .

    Thanks for the advise, I've looked at the Peco's on Google Earth, there looks like some serious mountain climbing going on there, be worth an excursion. Just going through the photo's and make notes of places we would like to see, like that beach with the rock arches.

    Thanks, Ken.

    Camping Spain from one who lives there..

    I lived in Andalucia for 10 years and motorhome here too, so I know it quite well. We drive back to the UK at least once a year in the MH, usually for Christmas.

    There are fewer camping sites here than in France and the quality generally is not as good, although there are some exceptions. Wild parking isn't really a problem except at some resorts where camping on the beach is strictly prohibited. Go along the coast a short way though and you will find somewhere to park for free. There is a free camper park in my nearest town Huercal Overa also a water emptying point, it will be a long time before they catch up with France though!

    For free water look for the sign 'Fuente', on occasions the amount you can take is restricted, so don't upset the locals by overdoing it! If it says Non Potable, it will not be fit for drinking.

I don't do sunbathing these days, preferring to walk, sight see or laze around with a book and a beer. Any suggestions of the perfect destination for me?
    I go to the south of France, the Cote d'Azur, and it's great!

    No Brits, but quite a number of French camping-car users ... The weather's lovely, warm and sunny during the day and a nip in the air at night.

    Places which are off limits during the season are unrestricted and places that usually charge may well be free.

    It is relatively quiet due to being out of season, and I recommend it highly
