On our trip down south through France, Spain and Portugal, we came across a lot of precious spots to park our van and we would love to share them! Most of them we
could park for free and a couple nights for max 8 euros.
These are just the best out of all the nights. If you want to know the rest of them check out our Where to go map.
Posada de Valdeon
A very tranquil place in the middle of the national park Picos de Europa. The camping area is right bellow the great cliffs with spectacular views. The acces roads
were good but you do have to take your time to get there because they are all windy roads that head into the park. Also check the weather forecast before you heat out there. We had a snow storm a
couple of days before we went so there was still some snow on the roads, but i can imagine that it can get quit snowy there in the winter.
Lots of hiking routes come past this spot so for those who love to hike, it is an absolutely amazing place. Never expected to see this kind of beauty
The place was not to expensive 8 euros per night incl. Electricity, water, cold shower, toilet, and a place to dump your dirty water.
Nice parking area close to the beach all grass and mostly flat. Good spot for surfing or taking a nice walk.
Free parking, no facilities, but good for a night or maybe 2. During summer they have an outdoor shower and public toilets down at the beach.
Playa de Traba
Beach area on the west coast of Spain we slept here before heading to Santiago de Compostela which was only an hour away.
Very long beach and very quiet area. In the evening before sunset we even saw some dolphins playing in the waves.
Free parking no facilities except for cold outdoor showers on the beach (during summer) and a public toilet.
Looking back at the pictures above makes me realize how awesome our trip was. Hopefully our second trip through the east coast of Spain will bring us to just as
beautiful places. Any tips are more than welcome! and if you want to know more about the spots above just ask!!! (through a comment bellow, instagram, or our contact form!)
