Murcia & Valencia caravan and motorhomes sites
Murcia & Valencia
Eastern Spain is an all-year-round destination with the most popular stretches of coastline amounting to some 200+ kilometres. This Mediterranean destination is known for its fine sand, crystal clear waters and plenty of spaces where you can relax and unwind. Along its coast, you’ll find the regions of Valencia and Murcia which are dotted with rocky coves and has a surprising ecosystem of great natural landscapes, cultural wealth and unique food and drink.
Discover the authentic flavours of the Mediterranean diet where gastronomic delights are made possible with fresh seafood, vegetables, fruits and tradition, all of which combine to produce that authentic Mediterranean flavour.
Valencia is famous for being the City of Arts and Sciences, with quirky festivals and being the birthplace of paella while the sun-drenched city of Murcia in eastern Spain is the place to go to enjoy great food, fascinating history, and grand baroque architecture.

How do I book an overseas site?
Overseas campsite bookings can easily be made on the Club website and "combined deals" are common when you book a campsite at the same time as your ferry crossing. Booking online means you save the £15 Contact Centre booking fee.
Does the Club take deposits for overseas bookings?
Yes, deposits for overseas bookings are calculated at 20% for a site and 25% for a ferry (unless it is a non-refundable ferry/Eurotunnel in which case full payment is due at time of booking). The final balance is due 10 weeks prior to travel.
Is the standard of overseas sites similar to that of the UK?
European campsites are star-rated by their own local authorities and can have different standards and regulations to the UK. However, the Club's travel team handpick and inspect our campsites so that members can be sure of a high standard.
