The caravanning sector continues to add followers. It is a form of travel freely which allows those who practice it to be in contact with nature and in turn enjoy the gastronomy and activities that take place in each area, without the need to make a large financial outlay.
The Spanish geography is ideal to take advantage of this eco-responsible trend Now that Easter is approaching. The corners are endless: sea, mountains and inland landscapes make a tempting offer for a holiday or a getaway this Easter.
