The Good Digs Guide

Mods, can we have a sticky in the Europe section on recommended hotels, bed and breakfasts and camp sites please?

We are always on the road and if anyone has stayed somewhere and feels that it's any good and would like to share then we could use this thread.

Sticky

I'm all for, it would really be nice to have some first hand info on such stuff. Would need some organization, so that you can find what your looking for. IMO

Great idea!

Stayed at a place last summer that I loved called the Hotel Beausejour in Montaimont, not far from La Chambre. Nice folks, good food, great views, secure moto parking, and a lovely, quiet village.

Cheers,

Love this Idea! To make it easy to handle, search and collect, let's agree for a terminology for that:

Country-Code; City; Region;
HOTEL NAME; www.contactdata.xy
Price/Person;
Notes

Sample:

F; Rencurel; Grenoble/Vercors/Savoie
HÔTEL LE MARRONNIER; http://www.hotellemarronnier.com
EUR 55.00/person July-Sept;
Phantastic location close to Gorges de la Bourne. Sympatic young Duch owners. Lots of "personality", no touristfabric. ~10 rooms ** equiped rooms but clean and quiet. Pool, great beer-garden, garage for the bikes, plenty of tour-suggestions availlable.
Cole de la Bataille, Col de la Croix and many others very close. The "Big ones" in reachable distance (Col d'Izoard, Col du Galibier, Col de la Bonnette etc.)

Hotel Misani; http://www.hotelmisani.ch/
Single Occupation from CHF 135.00, double occupation from CHF 150
Sorry, it's very expensive. I wouldn't mention that hotel if it realy wouldn't be vveeeeery very stylish and cool. It's worth staying there for a night, only don't just go there to sleep. Make sure you're be there early. It's one great experiance! Satin-Bedsheets, Mini-Car-Racetrack, DVD, Breakfast untill 4 in the afternoon... It's a real experience far from the normal. The service is young and fresh, makes one realy feel home imediately. The kitchen is one event by itself!

Hotel Del Oso - Picos De Europa

I was recommended this hotel after meeting a Spainish biker new Gibraltar. It's right in the middle of the Picos in a village called Cosgaya. Rooms are about €65 and are clean and well appointed. The resturant is something else though with fantastic food and huge portions. If you getting the ferry the next day it's worth staying in on your last night as it's only about 70 miles from Santander.

Camping La Perche.

From Granada follow the signs for the Sierra Nevada, which will take you onto the A395. About 10km from town as the road starts to climb there is a small sign for this campsite on the right hand side (If you reach a big fork in the road you've gone about 2km too far uphill).Campsite is about a mile up a single track road.

Owner has lots of large friendly dogs, there's a swimming pool, restaurant and well stocked (cheap) bar. Excellent campsite, would make a great base for exploring the area.

camping, cardigan, mid wales

Here is a great campsite next to devils bridge in Cardigan, Mid Wales, not overly busy as it is up in the hills away from the seaside, for a campsite the shower facilities are superb, really friendly people and they do a mean breakfast at the campshop which if the weather is good you can eat outside, a great base for exploring the area.

Just to show to all the british people who is going to the islands, or comming here, this interesting site, called La Arena, just at 5 miles from the Santurce port, where the P&O ferry to Portsmouth can be taken, and 15miles from Bilbao.
Easy to find, the hiway A-8 is right there.

here`s the link
http://www.laarena.com/index.htm
