Algarve’s new motorhome network to be unveiled tomorrow

A network of motorhome-friendly locations is due to be unveiled tomorrow (December 11) at the Turiscampo campsite in Lagos.

The ‘Rede de Acolhimento ao Autocaravanismo do Algarve’ (RAARA) will feature spots where motorhomes are legally allowed to stop and rest without fear of being fined by the authorities.

Further details will be explained tomorrow by the four entities behind the scheme: the regional development commission (CCDR Algarve), the Algarve Municipalities Association (AMAL), the regional tourism board (RTA) and the Algarve tourism association (ATA).

It is a year since the four associations vowed to create a “regional strategy for the sector” (click here).

Their announcement followed a string of incidents in Silves seeing motorhomers forcibly removed from the car park near the town’s swimming pools (click here).
