Residential mobile home parks in Spain | Not camping
There are two main reasons why a dedicated residential style mobile home park like the 5 star Park La Posada is so different to a joint camping/mobile home park.
1) The licence for the joint park is more than likely for normal camping and the number of static mobile homes allowed on the camping site could be restricted. Camping sites also tend to allow sub letting which means you can have different holiday makers next door every two weeks. On Park La Posada there is no subletting
2) When the Spanish go camping they like to party so at Easter and throughout the summer it will be very busy, very noisy and you will have children and dogs running around. Do not expect the noise to stop at midnight either. The other thing to consider when looking at a camping site with the view to buying a mobile home is the fact that when the facilities are needed most such as the swimming pool in the summer you will share the facilities with a lot of people who are on a camping holiday and plan to only be there for two weeks.
On Park La Posada it is only the owners, their family or guests coming and going and they become part of the mobile home community as soon as they arrive. The reception looks after owners and their family and guests alike. So different to a joint camping site.
Very few camping sites have a totally dedicated section for mobile homes which means that once someone books into the site as a camper they are free to walk around the site as they wish. The children on the park are also free to do so as well. It is after all a park dedicated to holiday makers.
Not so with dedicated residential only parks.
The facilities are there for the residents only and so you know that you will be sharing the facilities with like minded people who have also moved to Spain to live. They are not there for a week or a fortnight. That is important because top class park should always offer their residents top class exclusive facilities. Park La Posada is a top class park. You will know in the morning that there will be a sun bed by the pool for you. You do not need to reserve your sunshade or a table for lunch. You can look forward to relaxing with friends and neighbours. You will be part of the same community all year round. New friends to enjoy life with.
When looking at looking at different parks on the Internet check first as to whether it is a camp site/mobile park or a residential style dedicated mobile home park being offered.
If the park allows camping you have to accept strangers will be on the park at all times. Some sites have up to 200 camping pitches. On the dedicated residential parks the residents have remote controls that allows them to come and go as they wish and nobody can just walk in. The parks are 100% exclusive.
Camp sites will also have many different nationalities staying on them where as on the UK style parks all the residents are British and so a community spirit develops. This is an important factor as you will find making new friends so much easier. You will become part of an established community. The back up that offers is priceless. The park also has dedicated staff in the office just to look after the residents.
The first question should always be when being shown a new park “does the park also allow camping?”. If yes then you at least now know the drawbacks. It could well allow sub letting which means you could have different neighbours living next door every two weeks as well as the campers. Not so with dedicated residential parks.
Resale mobile homes on mobile home only parks are ideal in that you can see exactly how the park is and you will get to see how the community is straight away. Not a tent to be seen, only contented residents. That is so important if living in Spain is your dream. You will have friends and neighbours at the same time.
