Gawd ! That site looks crowded !
Difficult to get levelled, I seem to remember ?
If you need a good launderette, there's a cracker, close to the ferry main gates, by the duty free and cafe. Easy to park there, if there's no ferry due .
Safe travels.

If you're heading south, there's a lovely aire, about an hour's drive towards Palencia.. Aguilla de Campoo. Outside an interesting walled, old town.. Worth a look ?

Two days running lots of Police activity outside the Santander aire
Do NOT park on the road outside the aire or you will most probably be fined and vehicle clamped
The reason is that at the end of the road, there is a weight limit of 1.8t for parking
The first photo was about four hours ago and they returned just now

I forgot to say, the Police have been taking reg numbers of all vehicles legally parked on the aire. Probably checking the max stay of 2 days is enforced.
The Police said the hoteliers don’t like us and they have to enforce it although they don’t necessarily agree (exact words)
Spanish get ticketed and foreign vehicles get clamped because of possibility they abscond without paying fine
Just to vlsrify
The road outside the aire has parking all along the road but only for vehicles up to 1,8 ton and the signage is only about 2 inch on a clear way sign at the start of the road The signs outside the aire show no such restrictions
