Greece Stopovers

 

 

Here is our complete list of stopovers for Greece including the unique Eamless rating based on: Location, Noise, Slopeiness, Price, Wifi & Facilities

 

  • Wifi is judged using an Ubiquiti NanoStation loco M2 Bridge and AirRouter.

 

  • We use the following categories: Campsite (C), Aire (A) if this includes Motorhome Service Point, Car Park (P), Wild (W), Hotel (H)
  • All prices in Euros.

 

  • With Bike Rack we are a shade over 8m in length and weigh 4.5 tonnes.

 

Greece is a dream with a motorhome to visit. You can basically park anywhere and as long as you do not take out chairs, awnings, etc you will not be bothered. A motorhome is treated the same as a car as far as parking is concerned, i.e. if it is OK for a car to park then the same goes for a motorhome. We visited Greece between October and December 2015. Wifi is available in every café, bar and restaurant as well as many towns for free. Diesel is aout €1 per litre, LPG about 70 cents. Water is available everywhere, we drank it straight from the tap and never had a problem. Ryanair has cheap flights to the Islands which we took advantage of and you can park at Athens Airport within walking distance to the terminal for €3.70 per day.

 

Here is a link to an interactive google map with pictures and descriptions of the stopovers not just in Greece but also the rest of Europe.

Situated at Pension Arsenis on road from Kalabaka to Meteora. Pitches level with free WiFi, Water and electricity if required. Only downside the place is run by the creepiest family alive, the parents are drunks and the same is a Jimmy Saville impersonator. Fun, but not for the faint hearted. Just say no to all requests by Kostas

There is a parking spot 500m North on side of road if you want. However, you can stay at the Taverna for free. It is run by the sweetest lady in the world accompanied by her two lovable dogs. The views to Hydra are to die for. She made us breakfast and gave us a sack of oranges to take away. Water is available. Pitch is level. No Wifi

There is parking further up the hill by the lower entrance to Mystras but it is quite slopey. Xenia Taverna will let you stay overnight for the price of a Pizza and give you water and WiFi. Pitch level. You can leave your van here and explore Mystras or do the lazy version by driving to the top to do upper town then driving down to the main gate for lower town. Still a lot of walking.

In lay-by opposite Wave bar. A wonderful sea side town with beautiful harbour and imposing castle. Owners of Wave Café are simply the best. Endless free water and WiFi. Use of toilets and Greek dancing until the early hours. We came for a night and stayed a week. Outstanding.

Quayside Parking in the hip town of Nafplio with its Venetian Architecture, three castles and rows of Al-Fresco bars and restaurants. This is where the money from Athens comes for the weekend. Pitches are flat and there are loads of free WiFi to be picked up with a Nano. But, the place is noisy, very noisy. Lorries come and go all night and at dusk about a million crows descend to roost and have a beak-off all night with the Seagulls.

You can park in the car park alongside the Quay but it is noisy and subject to vehicle break-in. For €5 you can park in the gated Marina with all the facilities and level pitches with the added security of CCTV. Preveza is a town on the up. It has wonderful narrow streets with a canopy of vines to stroll around. You will need a Nano and not some inferior product like an iBoost to pick up WiFi here.

We made our way here as the beach at Voidokilia was a mossie breeding ground. In addition it was filthy. Pylos is a splendid place and we parked on the Quay with all facilities available. Unusual for Greece it had public toilets that were open allowing emptying of the SOG. Unfortunately for us we stayed the night when 500 British Travel Agents were having a knees-up across the harbour. Need to go back here.

Most Stunning Island in Europe. Best Sunsets in Europe. This is Hawaii without the jet-lag. Amazing place, amazing hotel. And if you really want you could do this as a day trip from Athens, €22 return with Ryanair and you get 12 ho
