Having spent last night on the main car park of the campsite so we could get an early start (today was the only day we’ve seen the sun rise in Spain) we set off about 7.30am while it was still dark. We were headed for the campsite at Zaragoza 600km away after taking advice from our mentor, Dick.
He said the route was great with plenty of stopping places and as usual, he was spot on. It took us six and a half hours driving time and we arrived about 3.30pm as we got stuck trying to find the campsite! We had been given loads of advice from fellow campers as it is notoriously difficult to get to, but we still managed to be wrong footed.
For those of you planning to visit the site, remember two things – the first, when your Sat Nav tells you to take the fourth exit, DO NOT get into the left hand lane! Get into the right hand lane and take the exit that then allows you to go around the roundabout. If you stay in the left hand lane (as I told Dean to do) you can only turn left, it does not allow you access to the roundabout.
Second, when you see the signs for the campsite, FOLLOW THEM! Don’t listen to your Sat Nav that takes you down a dead end one way street, then you have to go through an housing estate to get back out again!
Once we got there though, the welcome we received was very friendly. The pitches were large enough for us to leave the trailer attached and we had the option to decline electricity. There is a bar/cafe on site where we had two coffees and again, very friendly staff.
