I haven’t updated in a while…. as there hasn’t been much going on in my life cave-wise since I was last in Spain, today however I thought I’d pass on some information about a project one of my friends in has been working on.
The plan is an eco friendly (offgrid) campsite on a piece of land that she has recently purchased in Almeria Province. She has been planning the site for over two years but now the purchase of the land is complete it is finally moving along and will almost certainly be an interesting place to go and stay.
Situated on the outskirts of Vera the site is a sunny, level plot about 14 minutes from the sea, just under an hour to San Jose, The Cabo de Gata and Almeria and good place to start if you are wanting to explore the Spaghetti Western locations in and around Tabernas and the Cabo de Gata. Vera town itself is just a short walk away and is full of the usual amenities, Supermarkets, Bars etc.
The site is taking shape slowly but surely but at present she is looking for some help doing stuff clearing, heaving, building and generally being helpful (obviously having a skill in eco stuff would be more than handy)…. there is already a small team onsite doing stuff but any help would be or could be useful…… so if you have some time free between now and next summer and fancy a cheap holiday in a lovely part of Spain get in touch via the Verde Veras Facebook Page.
When the site is open it will be a great spot to base your explorations in this area of Spain…..
There are several Airports within fairly easy access: Almeria 50 Mins / Murcia 1 hour 22 minutes / Alicante 1 hour 56 minutes / Granada 2 hours 10 minutes / Malaga 3 hours.
and of course the drive from the ferries in the North is well worth the experience.
