Re: Where to Go: Marina in Western Med?

Perhaps soem of you have experience and can recommend a suitable destaination/Marina?

Here are my criterias:

- Marina must be in western side of Med, means Protugal (also Atlantic coast), Spain (also Atlantic coast), France and Italy. NOT any further East

- Marina must accept annual term payments, means I will pay in advance for one year

- Marina must be accessable, means must be within 1 hour of International Airport

- Marina must be cheap, means not charging an arm and a leg. My aim is somewhere between 2000 and 4000 Euros per year including VAT

- Marina must be safe, because I will leave the boat sometime unattended

- Marina must be protected from bad Weather

Thanks for your info and are such a great community...

CU in Europe..
We have just wintered our boat in Almerimar & found it to be pretty good & plan to stay again next year, after spending this summer in the Mar Menor. It's true to say that actual mooring fees are probably the best you will find, although it is important to bear in mind the extra charge of 3 euros a day when using their electricity & water. The recent financial climate in Spain has certainly opened the door for price negotiations & certainly worth trying with mooring your cat. Another aspect that both I & my wife have enjoyed is the social side of the marina. There is a very lively liveaboard community with daily updates on VHF 67/68 advising of all the goings on.
