Choose a Spanish caravan break for some summer sun
28 August 2012
With the August Bank Holiday turning out to be a bit of a washout, you might be longing for some guaranteed sunshine before the summer is well and truly over. If that's the case, then why not consider a caravan break in Spain?
According to ABTA the Travel Association, the sunny country is the UK's favourite foreign holiday destination. Plus, the pound remains at a four-year high against euro, making it an even more affordable option.
There are plenty of great Caravan Club approved sites to visit, depending on whether you're looking for a beach holiday or a city break.
One option is Camping El Escorial, a picturesque camp site north-west of Madrid. It's the perfect place to visit if your idea of a good holiday is one which involves soaking up the culture, seeing the sites and walking around the cities.
Camping El Escorial is well-placed for exploring the capital of Madrid as well as the lesser known towns of Segovia and Salamanca. The on-site facilities make it ideal for those who enjoy an active break, thanks to its three swimming pools and three tennis courts.
Nearby, there are opportunities for horse riding, windsurfing and guided walks.
Of course, if you're looking for a summer break, then you probably have a seaside holiday in mind. Fortunately, caravanners are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing a site with a beach-friendly location.
One of the most popular is Camping Cabopino. Not only is it just over eight miles from the tourist hotspot of Marbella, it's also close to its own lovely sandy shore.
Camping Cabopino is a really great choice if you're planning a family caravan break as there are enough activities on and off-site to keep even the most energetic kids entertained. The facilities include an outdoor and indoor pool, a bar and two restaurants and organised entertainment throughout the year.
You can also enjoy excursions to some of the most fascinating regions of the Spain including Andalucia, Granada and Seville.
