Can anyone help, we are planning our journey down to the Algarve, probabley from St Malo, heading towards Bayonne and across Spain to central PT and down, we are looking at travelling about 8 hours a day, we will be towing a caravan and have 2 dogs with us.
I was wondering if anyone has any experience of good campsites on this route, that are open all year round.
I would welcome any suggestions

You should have no problems finding campsites in Portugal, most towns will have a campsite as well as several doted around in the countryside.

some campsites are quite basic, and most are very cheap to stay. if you are travelling around in Portugal there is a good campsite guide book available from most campsites for around 5 euros, might be worth picking one up.

I do have a list of some campsites in our region of central Portugal, if your coming this way.:)

Campsite just round the corner from us in Serpins, Central Portugal.
