Best places to go with a motorhome in the Algarve this Aug

Hi all

We know its a packed time to go - blame the school holidays!

We don't mind paying for campsites but would like small ones rather than the biggies - just need places to chill out and relax - and happy to be inland if there is wild swimming options (lakes, streams etc)

Any thoughts? (Or anyone got a field/lay-by!!)

Jo

There are few places to stay in that area. Try googling "carrapateira" for example and see what comes up.

There are a lot of mobile home parks popping up in the Algarve. There's a big one just outside Quarteira (beach nearby), Lagos has one by the stadium about half a mile outside town and a mile or so from the nearest beach, Albufeira now has a short stop facility, there are two near Armação de Pera and so on.

Clarification to my post above. Also try googling 'Bordeira'.

Bordeira and Carrapateira are small villages around 10km/ 6miles south of Aljezur town. There is a campsite in that area as well as a surf camp.

To slightly confuse matters, Bordeira beach (Praia da Bordeira) is actually just outside Carrapateira, hence it is sometimes also referred to Praia da Carrapateira!

Arguably the most beautiful area on the Algarve.
