Its that time of year again, when the Volta Algarve Bike Road Race is on…. hence its worth noting where and when the roads will be closed – especially important when you’re traveling in a Motorhome, as its not so easy to jump in the next side street to skirt around the closures.
The main website is below with the maps of the roads that may effect you if you’re in the Vilamoura/Albuferia area.
This is the latest news for the up and coming Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show at the NEC Birmingham, UK, February 20-25th.

Hello fellow Caravaners,
We are pleased to announce that we now accept Caravans onto our site…. However due to car spaces, we’ve had to limit the number of caravans to 4.
Hence, if your caravan is less than 10M in length, then we have a pitch for you!
As we are a private site, you’ll have plenty of space to set up your awning, bikes and chairs for your holiday in the Sun.
You’ll find our rates to be very competitive from €9.00 per night which includes a parking space for your car.
So if you’re looking for a safe, secure site for your stay in central Algarve, then please look no further than us … we’re only 5km from Vilamoura Marina and 7kms from the Hills of Loule…. And of Course we’re set amongst the top 5 leading Golf Courses in the Vilamoura Area…
Or if Tennis is your Leisure Activity did you know we’re only 4kms drive to the Vilamoura Tennis & Padel Club… and they welcome Guests from around the world.
Or are you a Lawn Bowls Enthusiast? Because Vilamoura boasts their own Lawn Bowls Club and welcomes Guests members too.
So how about, grab your Golf Clubs, Tennis Rackets or Lawn Bowls and pack them into your Caravan and head south to enjoy the Winter’s Sun ….. because even though it may be February, you can play Golf, Tennis or Lawn Bowls everyday and in full sunshine!
Hear from you soon,
Anthea & Gerard
Good morning Fellow Motorhomers,
Its still officially Winter in the Algarve, but if you come from the Northern countries of Europe, you may think its Spring already.
Sunset in southern Portugal is roughly 18:00 (6pm) which gives us at least 1.5 hours more sunshine than the typical London, Amsterdam, Oslo, Copenhagen, Helsinki, Berlin or Paris’s day.
Today is sunny, but a bit chilly at 13°C… however with the sun streaming in through the front motorhomes windows.. its doesn’t take long for the internal van temperature to rise to 20°…. and that for me is summer time!!
So if you’re heading south to Portugal for some sun, then please remember your days will be longer- basking in sunshine from 7:30am to 18:00..
It may not be warm enough to swim in the sea yet, unless you have a wetsuit … but its warm enough to do pretty much anything else…. aka.. .wearing summer dressers and t-shirts & shorts during the day.
So are you up for walking on the white golden beaches of the Algarve, wearing nothing but flip-flops and shorts & t-shirts in February???
If so, please pop in and say hello and we’ll give you a great big welcome and pour you a nice cold beer on your arrival.
Hear from you soon,
Anthea & Gerard
Its nearly the end of January 2018, and already we have been full and have turned people away. After only opening 4 months ago, thats a lovely feeling to know that we’re providing a site that motorhomers are seeking.
We are introducing 4 Caravan pitches – large enough to erect an awning and leave your chairs and bikes out. The cars are parked in the front section, so people have 24 hour vehicle access. We welcome all Caravan Enquiries and look forward to hearing from you.
