  • The Andalusian campsite federation says that the ban does not make sense as hotels don't have the same restrictions placed on them

Campsites in Andalucía have asked the Junta regional government to lift a ban on stays longer than six months.

The Andalusian campsite federation says that the ban goes against the Junta's stated aim of reducing the seasonality of regional tourism by forcing people to move.

They add that it discourages longer-stay winter camping by retired couples from northern Europe and doesn't make sense as hotels don't have the same restrictions placed on them.

In the first six months of this year, 83,000 people checked into regional campsites.
