Overview

Further south than either Tunis or Algiers on Africa’s north coast, this area has long been popular with members.

41 miles from Tarifa, the most southerly point of the continent, along Andalucia’s famous ‘Coast of Light’, lies Conil de la Frontera, a much-loved destination for winter campers from the UK and the rest of Europe.  Roche's owning Leal family – father Antonio, with son Enrique and daughter Begoña – and their friendly staff run a welcoming site and are always ready to provide local information. Pitches are grassy and flat and you have the option to book either a single (60-70m²) or double (120-140m²) pitch. Many single pitches will allow for a caravan and awing, and double pitches are divided by trees and shrubs. It is nearly always possible on your allocated rally pitch to erect an awning, and then to park your car on an empty pitch nearby (naturally this cannot be definitively guaranteed, should the nearby pitches be unavailable for any reason, but the site also has a large car park across the lane opposite reception). A cosy bar/restaurant serves as the on-site hub of activity, with happy hours and occasional celebrations for special festivals, especially the Romería of San Sebastián, the religious procession and pilgrimage for the local patron saint, held on the Sunday nearest to 20 January subject to the weather. 

The campsite is set on the edge of woodland and close to the coast of this much sought-after area, and while the countryside setting does mean that some animal noise and a nearby soil grader may sometimes be heard, one of Roche's big pluses is that both town and beaches are quickly and easily reached by a good network of cycle paths, running through the pine forest to the coast. Signage and local maps for these are however almost non-existent, so take a relaxed view and be prepared to explore! Roche is best suited to campers with independent personal transport, which enables you to get the most out of this rewarding region. There is plenty of car and motorhome parking at teh beach for access to the old town. Days out are possible to unspoiled beaches from Conil to Cádiz, and to Seville, Gibraltar, Andalucía’s Pueblos Blancos (white villages) route, the sherry area of Jerez, and the Roman remains of Baelo Claudia complete with an ancient red tuna factory. Add all this to the Costa de la Luz’s historic sites of Cádiz and Cape Trafalgar, and you have a winning formula for a winter break.

This was our second trip to this site. We enjoyed the cycling and walking in the area and also visiting Cadiz. Dave and Agnus are very welcoming with a cup of tea on arrival. They are also helpful with any problems and try to include activities to interest everyone.

This review is for Roche

Dave and Agnes were their usual helpful selves. Very informative and fun. Once they knew I was interested in horses they took me to a free international showjumping event last year and that ensured I was back this year - spectacular! The area is stunningly beautiful and green. The beaches are long with soft white sand and in Conil are lots of festivals and events where the Spanish demonstrate their love of fun song and flamenco dance. Not to be missed is Cadiz, a escorted tour of Veher (white village) Tarifa & the sherry triangle including Jerez. The town is 3k away so motorhome owners usually joined car drivers for shopping, beer and tapas! We'll be back next year.

This review is for Roche

Enjoyed our stay, easy access for Cadiz ( a must visit) Jerez and Gibraltar. Vejer de la Frontera up in the hills, worth a visit find the underground carpark and the beautiful old town right there, Conil mostly shut in winter, a Spanish holiday resort, but pleasant town, Aldi etc nearby. Rally stewards excellent.
