Motorhome Stops in Spain (Servico para Autocaravanas)

Servico para Autocaravanas, Reisemobil-Stellplatz, Aree di Sosta, Camperstops, or Aires as they are also commonly called are places set aside, usually by the local authority for the convenience of motorhomes. They provide a place for motorhomes to stay, normally in or very close to the centre of towns. The Aree di Sosta will be cheaper than a campsite, but also with less facilities. All camperstops are different, however they will all (usually) have water for you to fill up your motorhome as well as waste disposal for your toilet and bins. Some of the more modern ones also have electric.

Prices vary for the use of the Aires. We have stayed in Aree di Sosta for as little as a few Euros, very occasionally, we have found a free motorhome stop however they will charge a little extra for the services.  Electric is usually charged by usage on the Aree di Sosta. Water is usually is on a meter and costs around €1 for 100 litres, and the emptying facilities are usually free. Staying in Aree di Sosta, or camperstops or Aires can make a huge difference to the price of your holiday and also give you a very good place to park in the town centres.

Here is a guide to Servico para Autocaravanas, Aree di Sosta, or camperstops, Reisemobil-Stellplatz or Aires in Spain.

Camping Recipes

This page is dedicated to camping recipes, not just for those in tents or out for the week-end, but these are also perfect for motorhome and caravan owners who don’t want to be eating out all the time whilst away or else living on sandwiches. It is nice to eat out and have someone else do the dishes, of course we all like that, but everyday it gets a bit boring and most of all a bit expensive!
