Northern Spain/ South France


Recommended Posts

We are looking at North Spain or Southern France. Looking for family orientated sites near beaches. We will be sailing to Bilbao. Any suggestions please

Look at the les Barcares area, about 10 miles north of Perpignan. Lots of superb sites there, good facilities for children, and close to the beaches. We spent June there this year.

Might be worth costing up the Caen crossing if looking at southern France or northern Spain as you will still have 400mile+ of driving from Bilbao port to those areas. Its "only" just over 600 miles from Caen so depending on hwo you like driving could be one overnighter in France

 

Also looking at similar areas next year (probably Spain) and looking at various options as we live pretty close to the Dover area for cheaper crossings but longer driving obviously

 

Quite a few nice looking sites round Bay of Roses area and further south towards Barcelona

 

If using the Bilbao crossing then for similar mileage you could look at below Barcelona and coast further down towards Valencia area

Unless you've tried it, you simply won't understand. .....

Light travels faster than sound, thats why some people appear bright, until you hear them speak.

Are we looking at the right area? Suggestions so far have been Mediterranean. Sailing to Bilbao, then, to me Northern Spain is the Costa Verde, Asurias Cantabria and Galicia, while Southern France is the Biarritz area. Where are you aiming at Martin?

It would be Northern Spain for me lots of sites around Laredo, Santona only 30/40 miles from Bilbao.

 

One of our favourites is Las Hortensias at La Franca near Llanes, hotel restaurant next door that gives discount to campers and 100m from a superb beach and bay.
