….Finding a place to park your Campervan for the night

The open roads of Europe meander through different cultures and landscapes. A campervan road trip allows you travel where you want, when you want, and to stay for free believe it or not. France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Germany, Benelux and Scandinavia all have forms of motorhome stopovers. These motorhome stopovers, known as Aires, are car parks and farms that allow campervans to stop overnight for free. We have discussed them before in other blogs but here is a link for you to find out some more information.

Modern Luxury VW California

Modern Luxury VW California

The Ultimate Camper.

The VW California is the first and only factory built, purpose built camper van by Volkswagen. Despite the Volkswagen brand being synonymous with camper vans, all previous incarnations were after market conversions – until now.

The VW California offers complete motoring comfort. It’s car like dimensions, means it fits in to multi story and supermarket car parks with ease and costs the same as a car when on the motorway or at the fuel station. It is a pleasure to drive on a daily basis around town or on long motoring trips.

The VW California is extremely well equipped as standard. It includes a refrigerator, two burner hob, sink with running water, two front ‘captains’ chairs which swivel 360, a sliding rear bench seat on rails, which is removable and folds down flat ‘rock and roll style’ to form a large double bed. There is an on-board computer system which controls various displays, the temperature of the refrigerator box, the temperature and timings for the auxiliary heating system, the water levels in the fresh water tank and waste water tanks, the battery levels and not least of all, the electric elevating roof. With the roof fully elevated there is full standing height within the van, or a further, surprisingly large, double sleeping area. The van is superbly designed, packed full of features and clever storage. There is a folding table in the van, and a removable table and chairs cleverly stowed in the boot lid and sliding side door.

This user friendly and future classic VW california is the ultimate camper van to escape with your partner, friends or family.

3. Enjoy nature

Who doesn’t love breathing clean fresh air, hearing the serene sounds of nature, watching the sunrises and sunsets, feeling the seaside saltiness and smelling the dinner being cooked on the campfire… Few other forms of travel offer so much daily interaction and connection with the natural world.  It simply makes you happy!!
