So, I think of all the camp sites we have stayed on over the past two years of travelling, Lido Solpi has been my favourite so far. I love its relaxed, outdoorsy ambience. Because it offers a simple rather than luxurious experience, then the people who use it, by definition, are seeking simplicity. It is a far cry from the big Spanish sites we used last year. Those were full of sun-seeking wrinklies there for the duration. I guess if you've shelled out on a swanky motorhome the price of a small house, then you are going to want to park it somewhere equally swanky. We found the somewhat competitive pitch decoration, the division of the sites into national enclaves with rows of flag flying vans, the all day drinking parties and the organised entertainment schedule utterly ridiculous. Not our style at all.
