Granada, Spain

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.

Great campground near Garmisch

Been staying here for couple of years, cleanest nicest showers and bathrooms I have ever seen, great service, great food, family owned, speak English etc. They are 12 KM east of Garmisch, gateway to Austria and Sudtirol. Great place to use for a base camp for exploring the area.

They have full campground, or very nice apartments for 35 Euros/night.

Most Scenic Campsite in Europe?

If it's jaw droppingly beautiful scenery you're after hard to beat the campsite at Lescun in the Western Pyrenees.

http://perso.orange.fr/bernard.bohn/...n_panorama.htm

There's a great Hotel/Restaurant (Hotel Pic D'Anie?) in town that has some cheap accomodation and nice cheap restaurant.

For a cheap night in Pamplona (very handy stop when heading for the Pyrenees after a long ferry ride) with secure parking try the Don Carlos at Pamplona (it's in the Huerto region North part of Pamplona).
B&B = €35

A few notes from my recent ride:

http://www.lecampingmoto.nl/
France; 26400 Montclar-sur-Gervanne Drome (near Crest). N 44 44.120 E 005 07.285

Price: 10,- per night and tent. Cabins for rent after reservation.

Located in the wonderful french pre-alps, this is a bike-only campsite. No Cars&RVs allowed. Run by a dutch couple in a nice spot by the river, this is a big place, with enough room to find a quiet corner. Open mid-may to mid-september. Big bar, library, pool, workshop, place to wash the bike. Very good, clean infrastructure built with style and a loving hand. Great atmosphere. Most guests seem to be dutch and danish. Best time to go may be late may-june when the grass is still green. Crest is the next small city (nice medieval center, fortress) with a bike shop, supermarkets and sports store for camping equipment.




Hotel Aladin
www.hotelaladin.ch
Switzerland, 3904 Naters, Furkastrasse 7

Price: around 80,- for a double room, I think.

Naters/Brig is a not very beautiful city on the Rhone river, but near Furkapass and Grimselpass when you're heading southwest and may be a stop after a long ride over the swiss passes. The hotel is a bit stuck in the seventies but clean. Parking around the corner. The owner is a nice multi-lingual lady who is interested to host more riders. After a good breakfast she offered us more to have some lunchpacks for the following ride.



Hostal Cal Catala
Spain, Roses, Francesc Macià 14.

Prics: around 55,- for a double room.

Cal Catala is a **-pension in Roses on the Costa Brava in the very north-east of Spain. Nice and cheap place with a heart for riders. Dedicated bike parking in front of the entrance, lots of pics of riders inside. Small beds! The double room is not suited for two guys in one bed, unless you like each other a lot. DAMHIK...




Hotel Mme. Couquet
http://www.montsegur-village.org/Acc...et-english.htm
N 42 52.271, E 1 50.051
France, 09300 Montsegur, 81 Le Village.

Price: around 55,- for a double room.

Best place I was at the whole trip. Montsegur is an enchanted medieval village in the Midi-pyrenees, just north of Andorra, south of Foix. Great area for riding, nice people, scenic villages. There are 2 hotels in town, this being the smaller one, actually more like a converted private home. Madame Couquet only speaks french but we managed conversation nonetheless. She is a charming host and cooked us a great menu. The place looks like nothing was changed for 100 years and you're afraid to put your riding gear on the exquisite antique furniture. We paid 88,- Euros for a double room, huge dinner with wine and breakfast. She opened her garage/shed for us to store the bikes. wonderful view on the old village road and surrounding mountains from the room. Check URL for good pictures.

All prices may reflect early/pre-season. I was there in mid-may 2007.

I live in central France (Loire Valley) and i joined the CDLM moto club last year. Their bi monthly magazine has pages of bike friendly establisments all of which are owned or run by bikers. We have used several while touring the Dordogne and found them excellent. They include cafes, ubs, B&Bs hotels and campsites. The best yet was Le Labrador restaurant & hotel near limoges at Le Chatenet en Dongon 87. Nice people good food excellent food and you can camp or stay in hotel. visit www.le-labrador.com or phone 05 55 57 10 24. Hope this helps.

If you're in Scotland for a bit of camping, head to Oban on some of the best roads and scenery in the UK.
Just turn up and enjoy, campfire on the rocky beach is first class.

Great Thread

Thanks for all the excellent information on places to stay in Europe.
We will be riding in Europe for four months next Spring and Summer
and this information is a great help to us with our planning.
How about some Spanish and Italian ideas.
Thanks MAX
