Free Overnight Parking for Motorhomes and Campers

There´s always a side road, a seafront or a country lane to pull up in and stop overnight but to go with that is the feeling of is this allowed and will I get moved on.

There are official stopovers that most Spanish regions allocate where you are allowed to stay for 24 hours but often it´s a service station or car park.

What about somewhere more pleasant, rural and welcoming where you can overnight for free? That is just what you can do with España Discovery.

An innovative environmentally friendly team who have got together with wine growers and agricultural producers who are willing to let a camper park for a maximum of 24 hours on their land for free.

They are not campsites, do not provide any facilities just a parking spot and possibly a wine tasting!

The scheme runs yearly from April to April and the subscription is 20 euros a year for which you will get a guide showing the stopovers and a window sticker, both of which need to be with/on your vehicle to proof your alliance.

There is a similar scheme in France. Both have websites and can be found here France Passion or España Discovery.

There´s nothing in the world quite like getting back to nature. Lying on the grass, watching the stars and listening to the sounds of nature.
