Bilbao to Armacao de Pera

Hi All

We will be landing at Bilbao on New Years Eve and heading to the Algarve.

Having taken this route twice before, can anyone recommend any aires for us to stop at.

From memory we have used

Peso da Regua

Would like to help Dave but after a couple of days in Madrid with family we go straight to Armacao via the autoroute in one day.


The FSA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000.
Brexit is madness orchestrated by the insane.

It depends on what you like to do and how much of a rush you are in.

We like to avoid motorways and even major roads if we can, so last year we came from Cordoba, stopping at

Oreliana la Vieja (quiet road alongside local sports arena, views over fields; free with water, dump), [called in at Penarroya-Pueblonova: not keen]
Oropesa (tarmac, dedicated area adjacent to rabbit-inhabited hillock, views over fields towards mountains, close to town; free with water, dump), [called at La Estrella: remote area by playground with some vandalism visible, not keen.]
Penafiel (campsite €26, full facilities, very quiet at end of unmade road through sparse woodland/scrub. Wonderful castle & town square), [called at Avila: large, busy area with views of city walls etc: not keen; Cuellar: fiesta in castle, MH places taken by cars, wouldn't have stayed as right next to busy road.]
Torquemada (tarmac, dedicated area by church, peaceful, grassy area, regular police patrol, free with water, dump).
Caberceno (tarmac, large dedicated area near zoo, peaceful, grass available, free with water, dump), [called at Herrera de Piseurga; Aguilar do Campoo: approach through town to avoid low bridge, parking places alongside river. Also consider carpark by Embalse but full when we were there; Reinosa]
Espinosa de los Monteros (hardstanding, lovely quiet spot by stream, cattle depot, free with water, dump NB steep hill N629 possibly closed with ice/snow) [called at Lanestosa: didn't like the look of the entrance - tight turn between narrow stone walls BUT lots of folk do it.]
Bilbao (super camperstop on top of hill overlooking city €15 inc EHU, WiFi at reception), [called at Zalla: few places on roadside in smart, quiet, residential area, free inc EHU, water, dump.]

Obviously, we were wandering around the north Spain coastal resorts, hence our strange movements over the latter days!

Hope that gives you an alternative consideration of how to get to Valladolid or Merida

Enjoy - Gordon

I think we will do the journey in 2 possibly 3 stops
Vilartao Aire
Benquerenca Aire

Then possibly a campsite stop before heading to Armacao

As we set sail Dec 29th at 23.00hrs we have two nights on board with a stop off at Roscoff, but we are not allowed ashore, just to take on passengers.

But I am still waiting to have our replacement bedroom window fitted, should be done very soon.

Having worked all through our busy season at work with holidaymakers in Chapel St Leonards, 50+ hrs a week, FUNNY PART TIME WORK, Armacao cannot come quick enough lol
