How does España-Discovery work?
Buying the guide identifies you as a member of España Discovery.The simple act of showing the current guide to the host vineyard or farm enables them to recognize you as a member of España Discovery.
Membership of ESPAÑA DISCOVERY provides motorhome users with details of sites, specifically vineyards (bodegas) or farms, where they are welcome to park in a safe environment for up to 24 hours. Between the members of ESPAÑA DISCOVERY and their hosts exists no financial or commercial obligation. Nevertheless the motorhome user must adhere to the general rules, a mixture of courtesy and respect for others, as laid out in the Code of Conduct.
CODE OF CONDUCT
Motorhome users, members of España Discovery, must accept and comply with the following code of conduct.
1.On arrival at the chosen site show the España Discovery guide for the current year to the host. Hosts, for reasons of security, will only let identified members of España Discovery park overnight on their property.
2.Arrive at the chosen site at a reasonable hour. Visitors will not be welcome in the middle of the night. Some sites have gates that will be closed at night
3.Each motorhome user is not a paying client but a welcome guest. Be friendly and thank your host on leaving.
4.To avoid inconveniencing the work of your host please park only in the areas indicated by them.
5.Before starting your journey ensure your clean water tanks are full and all waste tanks are empty and functioning correctly. España Discovery hosts do not provide facilities for servicing motorhomes.
6.Never light fires or bar-b-ques.
