Rally Dates 4 Jan -11 Apr 2014 (Members only)
This high quality modern campsite, in the western Algarve, continues to receive rave reviews from campers for its friendly welcome and for the quality of its facilities, which were improved again recently, with the opening of a fabulous new washblock. The Coll family are carefully redeveloping the site with priority being given to good-sized pitches and high quality facilities for campers.
The locality is ideal both for those who want to relax and for those who like to be more active, with many members commenting on how much there is to see and do in the area. Within easy reach are white sandy beaches and a picturesque rocky coastline, including the most south-westerly point of Europe, Cape St. Vincent with its famous lighthouse, just 12 miles away. Golfers can play on a different golf course every day – in February! The nearby town of Lagos is steeped in history, from Roman times through to the occupation by the Moors, then to more recent Portuguese explorers. This is a great campsite, that enables you to enjoy a Mediterranean-like climate by the ocean and to easily explore the fascinating surrounding area.

This rally is in a wonderful area of the Algarve that is less commercial than the more easterly region, the coastline ranging from white sandy beaches to rocky outcrops and cliffs. There is much to see and do in the area, by using either your own vehicles or the local buses that stop next to the site. Members at Turiscampo tell us that they love the combination of getting out and about into this wonderful region on some days, then relaxing on a high quality and well-run rally site with good facilities on others, while an enjoyable social programme from Bob and Margaret enables them to share experiences with others and pick up tips for new places to visit.
Rally Date: 04 01 2014 - 11 04 2014
We recommend that you book your entire rally stay as early as possible.
