Camping L’Orangeraie

Breakfast

Breakfast

I took Penny and Colin out first thing to see the sunrise….not sure they were that impressed and to be fair, without any clouds, it wasn’t a great display.

Later that morning we had a lovely surprise, a blog first, when a couple who had been following our blog tapped on the door and introduced themselves. It was Chris and Jenny, in Benicarló for a rally. We had a good exchange of sites and other motorhoming stuff over coffee and will hopefully meet up again later in the tour.

We moved on later that morning, via the local Carrefour, to Camping l’Orangeraie, a lovely French owned site about 8 miles inland from Benicarló. It is about a kilometre from the small town of Càlig.

The site is set in amongst the olive groves, close to the village of Càlig.

It is a small peaceful site with a number of large terraced pitches, each separated by lemon trees, figs and other shrubs. The owners are delightful; relaxed and welcoming.

There are almond orchards all about, covered in blossom despite the recent high winds.

    Are you enjoying your own company up there and have you cycled off that cheese board yet!?
