We had a couple of days of rain and stayed at a couple of not so nice campsites (not so nice because they had no atmosphere and the restaurant/bars and swimming pools were not open) When we turned up at Didota in Oropesa we expected much of the same so only booked in for one night.
The rain was lashing down, it was windy and felt cold and it didn’t look great in the rain but then nothing ever does. Once parked up we spent the afternoon in the van as there wasn’t much else we could do but decided to eat out in the site restaurant, which for a change was open. They offered a special 3-course menu for 5.60 euros each. The restaurant was lovely and cosy with a wood burning stove and they were cooking the food on a big open wood burning griddle.
The campsite was quite small but very cosy and intimate. We were provided with a timetable of events and took advantage of the “Specials’ on the menu several days during our stay. The Chicken Paella was really good and we would recommend it to anyone staying there. One evening or should I say late afternoon they had Country and Western and Tapas which proved to be really popular and filled the restaurant with all the different nationalities staying at the site. It was really nice seeing the German, Dutch, French, Spanish and English all sitting and having a laugh together. I think most of them were long stayers. We really liked this site and our one night turned into 7 because we found it so comfortable, friendly and it had lovely walks. It also helped that with the ACSI card we got 7 nights for the price of 6 and which at 15 euros a night was a bargain.
It was lovely to be able to walk around the site in the sun and discover what a lovely place it was. If you go out of the campsite and turn left at the beach you walk along a boardwalk to a lovely little fishing village with a bar/restaurant facing the sea.
We stopped off for a couple of glasses of wine and to just sit and relax in the sun. Walking on just past the restaurant we came across a camper stop (well there were no official signs to say it was a camper stop but there must have been about 20 parked up). There were no camper service facilities but it did look as if they were overnighting. This was in a very quiet area and at the start of a wetlands area, where you could walk for miles in the nature reserve. The coordinates for the camper-stop are above if interested.
