Peter and I bought our Caravan in December 2009 it was shipped to Zante Greece in April 2010, Jayne Ferguson dealt with our deliver of the van and with some things you do get teething problem all were sorted out in a month, the after sales was good. I have had to sell the Caravan now as my Husband has passed away I no longer want to spend as much time away from UK. Caravans in the Sun has handled my sale all was done very Professional and I had no problems with the way they dealt with the sale. From Clark who dealt with the sale of the Caravan to Mel who kept me informed through out thank you. The whole team were good, Margaret and Alex in Zante who handled the viewings, Thank you also. I have had eight lovely years in Alykes and Marietta and Spiro’s the Greek family who own the Paradise pool bar and the Olive Grove where the Caravans are sited are just such nice people.

To all at Caravans in the Sun – Susan and myself would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you at Caravans in the Sun for your guidance and help during the last 6 months and especially to Carol, for standing in the pouring rain with us not once but twice while we tried to visualise what the plot would look like when sunny. (above and beyond the call of duty )
Once again Thankyou to all .
Jim and Susan
Bob and Ibby – 14/04/2018
A very big thank you to you and all the Caravans in the Sun team for an easy purchase. Can you also say thank you on mine and Ibby`s behalf to the vendors who ave been very considerate and helpful to us and have done much more for us than we expected.
Karen and Iain – 15/01/2018
We are very happy with our new home, and the Park here at Valle Niza, it has always been an area that we love. As we have expressed to Eric, Mel and Sue….many times, we could not have been happier with the wonderful way in which we have been looked after throughout the whole experience of buying a home from you. We would not hesitate recommending you to others….and in fact have already done so! Thank you all, again. Warm regards
Roy and Hazel Fanning – 11/09/2017
From our first meeting with Mel and James we have been kept up to date with all aspects of the process. From viewing suitable mobile homes to the siting of our Willerby Mistral to the building of our decking and the fitting of the vital air conditioning. The finished holiday home exceeds our expectations in every respect. Thank you to all those involved at Caravans in the Sun both in the UK and Spain.
Mark – 07/09/2017
First Class Company – Unfortunately this year has brought nothing but bad luck but through all our misfortune Caravansinthesun have been amazing. Our plans went up in smoke but William understood our situation and without hesitation agreed to refund our deposit. This company is a rare find and once things pick up for us again i will certainly be back to see them so we can make our dream a reality.
Sue Quirk – 04/09/2017
We have been really impressed with the help we have received as we have had a few teething problems with the caravan but people on site and Andrew in particular have been very proactive and helpful. We are delighted with the park – it is so peaceful but really close to a number of interesting places and we have already discovered some lovely walks through the woods to Montreuil-sur-Mer. The only thing we wish we could improve is the weather but then we did decide to buy a caravan in Pas-de-Calais!
Mark Dempsey – 27/07/2017
We are delighted with our plot and look forward to developing it Alvor is a wonderful place. The campsite is good although it does need a lot of work where we are based for it to come in line with the rest of the site. Chris Bennet has done a sterling job helping us settle in nothing has been too much for her, i can’t imagine how we would have managed without her help. Many thanks to all of you whom we have dealt with us especially James who persuaded me to drive to the Algarve from the Costa Del Sol last December to have a look at your sites down there.
Alan Firth – 04/07/2017
Since first contacting Caravans in the Sun to the final processes of completing the purchase of our mobile home they have been extremely helpful and sorted out any problems quickly & efficiently. Their representative Terry Stevens on the site we chose near Castellon, has been extremely friendly & helpful. Nothing is too much trouble for him and his wife Elaine.
Anonymous – 01/07/2017
It was a difficult decision to sell the home but I am now in my seventies and the journey to and from France is now too much so the time was right.
Many thanks to you and James and the teams for a smooth process.
We have passed on your details to another resident.
Ross and Annie – 28/04/2017
You provide an excellent service from the uk office and especially on the ground in Benidorm, your local representative Gavin could not be anymore helpful and is a credit to your company.
S Reid – 28/03/2017
The caravan, the park and the company staff are all great! You can ask to look at models within your price range and if you tell the company what type of site you are looking for they will suggest the best for your needs.
Carole Robinson – 23/03/2017
Caravans in the Sun was the place I checked regularly whilst looking for a holiday home in France.
I saw a few caravans on the site in Pas- de-Calais, Montreuil that I liked and requested a viewing trip.
From viewing just before Christmas to completion in January was very quick and easy. There was no hard sell, just facts and all questions answered and I had a tour round the area. There are lots of price ranges to suit and I quickly made up my mind that this was perfect place for me.
I love the area and the location and am looking forward to spending lots of time there.
Yvette Morton – 26/01/17
CARAVANS IN THE SUN. A huge thank you to them for relocating me from one park near Mollina to another, after I unfortunately purchased a mobile home from a UK based company who promised paradise but instead I found myself in hell. The company’s rep’s gave me totally wrong information, miss-sold a home to me stating it was double glazed, which it wasn’t, the contract was incorrect as was the ground rent figures and once I arrived on the park I had to part with more money for fee’s which I wasn’t told about, so to say the least I was not happy. On contacting the rep’s they and informing them of their errors they passed me on to their head office in UK, they acknowledged the info was incorrect caused by the rep’s not checking the facts, I asked for a full refund but that was not forthcoming, after 1 week I spoke to the owner of the park, explained that I understood that even though he owned the mobile, the fault lay with the company selling it, he told me to ” stop whining” and he threatened to kick me off the park for making a nuisance of myself, from there everything went rapidly downhill, the park owner verbally abused, harassed and intimidated me and on one occasion stalked me but as I was living under the threat of eviction I could do nothing. The UK based company offered to resell the home free of charge, on the third scheduled viewing I waited on a neighbours veranda for over 4 hours, the rep’s didn’t turn up and didn’t inform me.
I contacted William from CARAVANS IN THE SUN, explained the whole sorry saga to him, he introduced me to Eric, who collected me, took me to another park outside Mollina, showed me a home which had everything my previous home had AND was fully double glazed, we made a deal where we did a swap, they took my home off the other park, paid all the expenses and a full year’s rent as well. I am now settled in my new home, delighted and can’t thank CARAVANS IN THE SUN enough, I am so happy to be in a park with a company who treats people with respect and who are honest and trustworthy, it’s a pleasure to recommend them.
Rachel Bell – 18/01/17
January 2017 .. I am looking to purchase a caravan in France , I chose one with caravans in the sun , paid a deposit , then realised the caravan would actually be a bit tight for my family of 6. Nothing was too much bother for Mel, James or Sue ( and Bill in France on the site) they refunded my deposit no problem and continue to help me find our holiday caravan. Extremely rare to find such an honest company that actually care whether you are happy or not! Would highly recommend , and we will definitely buy with them … 100% trustworthy. Rachel (Cornwall)
Christine Bose – 17/01/17
Well what can I say about this company simply the best. Me and my daughter went to Malaga on the 10/1/17 for 4 days, caravans in the sun sent a taxi to the airport to pick us up no bother then the next day at our hotel they sent Vivi to pick us up and take us to the caravan viewing trip, she was lovely I have to say there was no pressure to buy I asked loads of questions she was brilliant, the site is in Torre del Mar, Spain what a lovely site I am well pleased and I have spoke to James a lot of times and even although I haven’t met him he is lovely I will say again they DO NOT PRESSURE you to buy it is up to you yourself. Fantastic company me and my husband are retiring there in 5 years time and I know we will be happy but for now it will just be a few weeks here and there can’t wait to go back, thanks again caravans in the sun for being so lovely kind and HONEST from Christine Bose south shields.
Den and Phil – 24/10/16
Can I just say thank you for your help which resulted in us being able to view and purchase ourselves a mobile home in vendee, also I must say Bill Needham has been an absolute star he has gone above and beyond what I ever expected we are so grateful to him as he made our purchase go so easy helping with the bank and insurance, we tried from here ourselves nightmare yet bill took us in all done so easy don’t know what we would of done without bill.
Bambi Dhami – 18/10/16
Superb Service! My friend and I decided we wanted to move to Spain a few months ago. We contacted Caravans in The Sun and were taken to a couple of their sites to look around. We were very keen to live next door to each other. They found us a beautiful plot, that we could share and split the expense. The move went smoothly and they have been there every step of the way. I can highly recommend this professional outfit. Massive thanks to Eric, Will and all at the company. We couldn’t be happier!
Elaine and Bernard – 07/10/16
We have just completed our purchase of 19 Mountain View at Saydo Park near Antequera and found the whole process easy and straightforward. We initially contacted James at Caravans in the sun and then met Jenny at Saydo Park, both of who helped enormously with patience to our endless questions. Completing the paperwork with Sue at Caravans in the Sun and speaking with Liz at the park gave peace of mind confirming that we are in good hands. The after sales care from Dee at Caravans in the Sun all helps to make the buying process feel safe and pleasurable. The park is lovely, well run and the people there are all really friendly. We look forward to spending many happy holidays in our new second home for many years to come.
Thanks once again
Elaine and Bernard
Andrea – 18/08/16
Great company! I love their service and prices!
David & Christine Knight – 19/06/16
David and i have just been bowled over with the whole process of our purchase of 15 Mountain View at Saydo Park. We are still reeling with excitement. We are not living their full term, it’s our holiday home at the moment, we purchased in February, stayed for a week in April, going back 28th June for another week and we have already booked flights for a 3 week stay in October, we can’t get enough!!!! On our last two occasions on visiting Saydo we have hired a car, we are going to test out the local bus service in June.
The residents in Saydo are very welcoming and someone is always up for a chat, always willing to help or give advise. From start to finish the courtesy, kindness, helpfulness of all the folk involved in guiding us through the process was and still is outstanding, from England to Spain, you all should feel very proud of your accomplishment. Nothing has ever been too much trouble when we needed support.
Mark – 28/04/16
Holiday home in Portugal – We were sat in our Holiday home on the east coast of the U.K. last April when the thought of wouldn’t it be nice to move our home to a warmer climate. Within a few minutes of the idea I googled holiday homes abroad and Caravans In The Sun instantly appeared, it was a bank holiday Monday so when I called the number I didn’t expect a response. How wrong could I be the call rang three times and I was greeted by Will who asked what we were looking for, I gave a brief description as to location, beach, restaurants and Will confirmed a place on the Algarve – Cabanas. We then talked through the size of our holiday home etc, the following day I received all costs, at this point I booked the flight to Faro to meet Lisa & Will on site who gave me a guided tour of not only the park but the location, it was like being on a place in the sun, the experience was excellent! I spent the next two weeks doing a little research but I am the type of person who goes with his gut feeling and we definitely made the correct choice. Our Home was transported within 4 weeks of the initial inquiry and arrived in Portugal in early June, on arrival we flew out a few weeks later to arrange decking / TV / etc. Since June we have enjoyed over 7 weeks of sun, far more than we would have had in the UK… It is very hard how to stress how good the team are at Caravans In The Sun but I can honestly say the service during our relocation and after is 5 stars!
Brian and Sue Richardson – 28/04/16
Both Sue and myself were very satisfied with the way you, and especially your representatives on site, handled the sale of our mobile home (Plot 275 – Vendee).
The procedures were explained fully and any queries were dealt with promptly.
Many thanks to you all.
Pete and Dawn Belli – 28/04/16
We are delighted with our new home and the park itself seems to be very well maintained and everybody has been extremely helpful.
Although our purchase did not go as planned, this was due to the intransigence of our Spanish Bank. Everybody we dealt with here at Saydo Park and at Caravans in the Sun was friendly and extremely helpful, and thanks to everybody for that.
David and Linsay – 07/04/16
We are delighted every glitch that was not your companies doing was dealt with and very promptly to. We told everyone about Caravans in the Sun as I have to say still pinching ourselves that it has been so straight forward and we now own a little piece of sunshine we go over in June to put our own stamp on it. And we can’t wait
Sue-Marie – 15/03/2016
Thanks very much for everything, I am really happy, and Gavin is a gem over here, really makes sure everything is done right, Thanks for everything.
Michelle – 14/03/2016
Excellent, trustworthy, lovely people and fab company. Where do I begin in my praise for this company and the wonderful people, especially Will. I have bought 2 mobile homes from caravans in the sun, and hope to be buying a third in Tenerife,. The team have been kind, and have patience of saints when I have changed my mind, or had a difficulty And still tried to ensure my dreams became reality. I have been stranded in areas I was not familiar with in Spain and Tenerife and yet each time, Will has come to rescue me, my young daughter calls him her friend, it is simply lovely. Eric and Will recently came to my rescue in Spain again when I had a problem, no questions asked, really incredible decent people. They overwhelm me. Mel in the office is just a delight and James too. Never any pressure or sales pitch from any of the team ever. To all at caravans in the sun, I thank you for making my dream come true and for all you do for me, Very special people.
Terry and Jenni Burns – 12/03/2016
About 3 years ago when we first were thinking of spending our retirement somewhere warm and not too long a flight from the UK, the Canary Isles became more and more on the radar. We had not considered a caravan as we thought of them as dated and small and expected that an apartment or villa would be our likely accommodation. On researching our options, it soon became apparent that “bricks and mortar” properties would be a lot more expensive if you were to find somewhere half decent that had a view and was in good repair. We’d had a old caravan several years before and were surprised at how much more modern, spacious and comfortable they had become and started to look more closely at this option. We found the Caravans In The Sun website and the caravan park in Tenerife and soon thought that this would be the right option for us, when considering cost, comfort and location. We found that there was a camping and caravan show at Birmingham NEC in February 2015 and booked up to go. We contacted Caravans In The Sun who said they would show us some options of caravans at the show. This was the first time that we met up with Will, who, although was very busy, was very helpful in showing us around and giving invaluable information and help. We never quite thought that it would be possible for Will to meet us in Tenerife in July ’15 during our holiday there, as he said he would, and were delighted that a few weeks before we went, Caravans In The Sun contacted us to make the arrangements to show us around in Tenerife and meet up with John & Jean who were residents there. It was stressed that there would be no charge for this or any obligation to buy. We were shown around the area and the Park and looked at the various plots that were available. We spoke at length to Will and James and to John & Jean who answered our many questions. After taking a couple of days to consider, we soon made a decision to reserve a plot at the clean, peaceful, well equipped and low cost (ground rent includes Electricity and Water!!) The site with its nice views and neighbours, and called Will to reserve our chosen plot with a small deposit. This done, we then had to choose our caravan model and based on our visit to the NEC had a good idea of what we wanted. We decided on the Pemberton Marlow and arranged with Caravans In The Sun to come up to the factory in Wigan to view one “in the flesh” which confirmed that we had made the right decision. We placed an order with a deposit and then sat back for it to be made from scratch with a delivery time of December ’15. By the end of November it was all ready to be shipped to Tenerife, which Caravans In The Sun organised and kept us informed at all stages of its progress, showing photos of its arrival and delivery to our plot ! (Very Exciting !!) In January ’16 we went out to see and stay in our lovely home for the first time and it is very fantastic. All of our new neighbours are all very helpful and friendly, especially John & Jean who have gone out of their way to settle us in. Simon,( the builder) who everyone recommends has been cracking on with our fence, gate, patio and pergola and is doing work to a very high standard and has also been very helpful with the caravan. Overall, we are very happy with the high standards of customer service, help and advice from Will, James, Mel, Jayne and all at Caravans In The Sun and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone else that is considering investing in a peaceful, stress-free lifestyle in a warm and pleasant climate that is a 4 hour flight from Blighty. We would be more than happy to be of help to you if we can in any way, With Best Wishes, Terry & Jeni Burns
Paul Ryan – 09/03/2016
This was a completely new experience for me and from the time of my initial enquiry with James at the Beaulieu Showground to moving in, I was guided through each stage without feeling under any pressure to purchase. Any questions I had were dealt with in a very friendly and efficient manner by all of the office staff involved.
I have now spent my first week at Alvor, Lisa and Martin are providing all the help needed to settle in.
Many thanks to all concerned for making this a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
Barbara Headley – 22/02/2016
My place in the sun. From the first time I met William Kay of Caravans in the Sun at Olympia until my caravan was sited in Spain I was looked after with professionalism and courtesy. I cannot believe it was so easy from start to finish the process was handled in such a way that there was no stress involved no sleepless nights but now I am in my caravan I am living my dream. I was looked after totally and given all the options so I was able to make an informed choice. I was so confident in William that he knew what I was looking for and he delivered. I cannot rate this company highly enough and would recommend anyone thinking of moving abroad to get in touch. You will not be disappointed.
Jonny Billmer – 08/02/2016
Genuine buyer. First i was a little bit scared of transferring 18 500 Euro to a company that not did answer direct.
But in my case its the culture difference.
I think that i am one of these complicated customers with a lot of questions and want to see the contract draft etc.
These guys have patience and feels like serious people.
I will complete my buy with caravans in sun,
Some people giving them some complaints here at trustpilot, but of cause as seller you always want as much money for your stuff as possible.
In my case im ready to pay an extra amount for the service.
I would like to give the thumbs up and thank caravans in the sun for patience and help.
Looking forward to buy my mobile home and start using it.
Philip Longman – 30/09/2015
Excellent. In my experience I can vouch for the after sales service, which has been excellent in my recent purchase. It’s a big decision buying abroad and one wants to be in safe hands. This is the strength that sets the company apart, as it is a small family company, U.K. registered, with a good track record, encompassing many years of successfully serving satisfied clients. In my experience I have found that being a small family business they are in a unique position to serve the client at personal level. Therefore, it is my opinion that I can highly recommend this particular company. Dr. Philip
Stephen Spencer – 30/09/2015
We are very pleased with our caravan and love the site. Best wishes, Stephen
Tracey Hills – 16/09/2015
Extremely satisfied customers of Caravans in the sun.
The thought of buying a property in France had been on our minds for a while, and whilst sitting on a terrace in Southern India, we came across what was to be our new holiday home on the website. We actually contacted James whilst out there to get the details and booked an appointment to meet Andrew when we got back.
A sunny Saturday in April found us outside a beautiful lodge mobile home overlooking the most enchanting lakes in Northern France, an area we have known and loved for several years. To say we fell in love straight away would be an understatement. After a 3 way discussion between ourselves, Andrew and Fred the site owner, we decided to buy the unit and promptly called Melanie in the office to pay the deposit. There were several things that we wanted done before we ‘moved in’ and straight away, even whilst we were still there, Andrew and Fred were organising fences, gates, satellite etc. Three weeks later we were in. We can honestly say from the first enquiry to this present day, the help and advice we have received from Andrew has been amazing. Thank you Andrew and your team at Caravans In The Sun for making our dream a reality.
Alain – 15/09/2015
Rigor , honesty and efficiency! True Professional !
Through experience I lived through the purchase of the residence / mobile home in southern Spain, Caravans in the sun and his team demonstrated a perfect control of the situation on site as managing the project for more than one month!
Caravans in the sun is trustworthy without moderation !
Boards have always been accurate while protecting my interests as my wishes!

Bev and Malc Bridgeman – 25/08/2015
We would just like to thank the team, Eric, Mel, James and Will for making us very happy mobile home owners. We are settling in and absolutely love the park. Thank you all for your help. We wish you all every success for the future.
Hilary – 22/08/2015
Thank you for making the sale so easy. Confirming money is my account
Thanks to you and Martin
Yvonne and Keith Bourne – 17/08/2015
Caravans in the Sun gave us the confidence to change our lives giving us something new and exciting to look forward to, something we can enjoy as a couple and together with our family. The complete process from start to finish was easy and relaxing, we said what we wanted and what we were hoping to achieve. William took the time and made sure that we explored not only the site completely but also the surrounding area. All of our expectations were realised and everything was put into place for us; the mobile home of our choice on an excellent pitch. Following the agreement to purchase James and his colleagues made sure all the details, including the finances, were honest, straightforward and that it all went as planned. We feel particularly lucky to have Lisa and Martin as our site staff, extremely helpful and informative, nothing is too much trouble. Lisa acted as chauffer and mentor; Martin is ACE when it comes to decking. Caravans in the Sun, together with Lisa and Martin, are the “full package”, we couldn’t ask for more. We would recommend to others “go for it, enjoy, sit back and watch your family having the best time ever”, or if you’re on your own just “chill out and watch the world go by” Caravans in the sun will do the rest. Thanks to everyone at Caravans in the Sun for making this dream a reality.
Dave Edmondson – 28/07/2015
We purchased our caravan in the Vendee, France in May 2011. The purchase process was very easy, and all the staff most helpful – despite our very late arrival ( 9.00 p.m…) to view the following morning prior to purchase.
After numerous enjoyable holidays over the last 4 years – our requirements & circumstances had changed – so we needed to sell our holiday home.
We would like to express our thanks to all the staff at Caravans in the Sun. The sale was never going to be swift or easy, but all the staff we dealt with were very helpful and professional.
Carol and Mel answered our many questions and did a lot to ensure that we completed the sale – right up to the funds being transferred on completion.
Sharon & Chris – 22/07/2015
We have been over to see our wonderful home, love it. Chris and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and the team for a smooth transition and fab service.
John Dunbar – 20/07/2015
We were very pleased with the aftersales service as Caravans in the Sun sorted out the snagging problems in relation to the shipment of our home.
They acted as mediators between us and Willerby homes to resolve the issues we had for which we are very grateful.
Les Cad – 14/07/2015
The purchase of my mobile home was simple and hassle free. As for life in this park everyone is so friendly and helpful its delightful. All you need to live a simple quiet life is within 500 yards even a British supermarket.
Lorraine and Maria – 04/07/2015
We couldn’t be happier with our home in France. Everything has been so easy from buying the home we wanted and getting the sight we wanted. Cant thank you enough for all your help also to Carol who helped sort insurance ect. We would certainly recommend your firm to anyone who we know is looking for a place in the sun. Thanks to James and his staff and of course Carol in France. Best wishes Lorraine and Maria.
Cath – 02/07/2015
The site is fantastic, good value for the site fees, extremely clean, well kept, lovely people who live and vacate there. Amazing location near Apremont and all facilities eg, supermarkets, beach, restaurants close to hand. We absolutely love holidaying there and wish we could more frequently
Peter and Lorraine Snape – 02/07/2015
We found Caravans in the Sun early 2015 on Google, through them we found the park in Bergerac. Lovely company to deal with, Carol met us on site in France, she is lovely, showed us around the plots available and gave us lots of information regarding the site and local area. We then decided the park was for us so spoke to James in the UK to arrange transport of our static home to France. He is also lovely, very helpful and so friendly, he never once pressured us in any way, just gave us the information we needed, i.e. prices, time scale, all the staff at Caravans in the Sun in the UK have been great, just had no problems at all and would highly recommend.
Bob & Heather Freer 02/07/2015
We would like to express our thanks to all staff at Caravans in the Sun. Our purchase was far from being straight forward, but all the staff we dealt with were very helpful and professional.
Carol in particular answered our many questions and did a lot to ensure that we completed the sale. Her interest did not end when the keys were handed over as she continued to ensure that we were happy with our purchase.
Vivienne Brinton – 29/06/2015
Big Thanks to Caravans in the Sun
Having previously purchased property in Portugal and France and having the stress and hustle of dealing with all the paper work in a foreign language, plus all the added costs with notery fees, solicitors costs and taxes. Caravans in the Sun made it unbelievely easy to purchase our mobile home in Portugal with no stress or hidden extra charges.
William and Lisa have been so helpful, everything was clearly explained to us and any doubts we had soon disappeared. From the time William met us at the airport and showed us around there was never any pressure to buy.
Sue and all the staff in the office were helpful and friendly. They were able to assist us when we were having difficulties arranging insurance for our home and resolved the problem very quickly.
On arriving for the first time to stay in our home, we were met by Lisa and Martin, to be given the keys, they showed us how everything worked and had even put in a welcome pack for us. Lisa took us to Tavira to arrange for our fiscal number and, insurance and showed us the shop where we could arrange to get air con installed. We have never been made to feel we were just another sale, instead they went out of there way to make us feel welcome. We would highly recommend this company, who are professional but also have the personal touch.

Doctor P.Longman M.D. – 28/04/2015
I highly recommend Caravans-in-the-Sun
In my experience, I can genuinely recommend caravans-in-the-sun (mobile homes abroad), as a safe way to purchase a mobile home abroad. When a small problem did arise it was efficiently dealt with and resolved very satisfactorily. I am certain I made the right decision in buying from caravans-in-the-sun and would be happy to buy from this company again in the future. Dr. Philip Longman M.D.
Emma Soones – 01/04/2015
Hi all, just wanted to say thank you to everyone who helped us buy the place at loyat. Just been to visit it yesterday again and so pleased with it.
We’re actually interested in buying another but specifically for rental purposes, perhaps in Spain or Portugal. If you have anything in mind or coming up I’d love to have a look.
Jackie Phillips – 09/03/2015
Hassle free experience
When we first started our journey to purchase our fabulous mobile home in Portugal I was extremely apprehensive but William and Sue have been absolutely wonderful. They have helped us with every aspect of our purchase and have been very patient with all my many questions and queries. They have made our journey hassle free and so easy. William not only showed us around the mobile park in Portugal but also the local area. This has been one of the best decisions we have ever made.
Derek Clark – 24/02/2015
I’m so pleased I chose Caravans in the Sun to sell my property. The sale was prompt and I did not have to deal with anything other than the first authorisation form. Excellent service that I’d recommend to anyone.
Tara Harvey – 26/11/2014
VERY FRIENDLY & PROFICIENT COMPANY!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND. We have just had an extremely hassle free pleasant experience with purchasing our caravan in Marbella through Caravans in the sun. We really wanted to buy a holiday home abroad and it seemed so daunting and scary but caravans in the sun made this whole experience a delight and easy!!. I first called caravans in the sun and from the very first phone call i was never made to feel pressured into buying with them and no matter what i wanted and no matter how many times i changed my mind on different things they James always helped me. Caravans in the sun did everything they could to assist me and my budget. James in the office was a great help he really understood what we needed as a family and helped guide us through the process i never once felt i was just another sale I actually felt like they cared and understood what we were trying to achieve with our holiday home Then there’s Eric who works for caravans in the sun, Eric picked us up from Malaga airport, he showed us around, He answered all of our millions of questions and when we took some time to venture out on our own he would call us and just check we was ok. Eric then returned us to the airport when we was ready to return. Not once did either Eric or James try on a sales pitch they were simply honest and helpful and are continuing to be even after the sale has been done, I would highly recommend this company to anyone who is looking to buy or transfer their caravans abroad, We are so happy and excited and our dreams have come true with the help of this company, The pictures are exactly as what they advertise and the sites are exactly what they say too!! Thank you caravans in the sun we are all so very happy!!!!

Thank you, and thank you for making the sale of my Mobile stress free, I will not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone.
Sandra Downie – 06/09/2014
Support, advice and assistance, fabulous customer service! From the moment we made contact with Will when decided to purchase our beautiful mobile home in France, we felt we’d made a new friend. Our visit to choose the mobile home and then have it transported down to the Dordogne was taken care of by Will and his team who were very professional, helpful and friendly. The after sales service was outstanding – nothing major just a few “teething problems”, which were dealt with smoothly and efficiently. Just so you fully understand, having a 40ft x 14ft mobile home transported from the UK to the Dordogne is in our view, no mean feat. Caravans in the Sun take care of all this ensuring at all times the service offered is the very best it can be. I would suggest that if you are considering purchasing a mobile home; and want all the stress taken away from you – contact this company, let them take care of it all for you – and simply move in! Thank you Will and your team! Great service, great mobile home and location, we couldn’t be happier. Sandra and Robert Downie

Fast, helpful, superb. After contacting Eric from caravans in the sun we had arranged to view a show home that was on a park ,it was perfect for all our needs ,we arranged a second viewing where we decided to buy the show home, The service from both Eric and Melanie in the office was superb, they have arranged everything for us from the connection to the decking and fencing.The guys that built the decking were fantastic and have done a brilliant job .Any questions we have had have been answered in minutes, we cant thank them enough for the fast professional service they provided us with.
Mike Barry – 06/05/2014
A great result from a great company! I made a viewing trip to the Vendee in January with William from Caravans in the sun which was a well organised and enjoyable day. I was shown an un-sited mobile home that had been selected to my requirements and then visited the mobile home park were I was able to have a free choice of a number of pitches for the home to be sited. I was very happy with the arrangement and made the first payment to the agreed payment schedule which included the transportation and siting of the home. Unfortunately there was an unforeseen event that involved the transportation company who went into liquidation with my mobile home unable to be moved. I took a call from William with the bad news but he was able to offer me an alternative home already sited and to a higher specification for the same price. We made our first visit to the park at Easter and stayed in the alternative mobile home which totally exceeded our expectations. So, the Journey to get my holiday home had an unforeseen problem but the outcome was totally worth it. Many thanks to William and the Caravans in the sun team from a very happy customer.

Excellent, Hassle-Free Experience!! When we decided to purchase a mobile home in France, we were entering into unknown territory and, obviously we were a bit nervous and wary. From our very first telephone contact with Caravansinthesun through to completion of the sale and taking up residence, we had a first rate experience, with our confidence in the company building every day. Telephone conversations and emails in the very beginning with Melanie in the office quickly highlighted to us that we were dealing with very friendly people who knew what they were talking about regarding our proposed venture. We arranged a site visit and this was arranged to suit US, with William meeting us on the site in le Touquet – Montreuil and spending the entire day with us, answering the numerous questions we posed in a very professional manner. We decided to go ahead with the purchase of a pre-owned mobile home and from then on, our experience has been second to none. We simply had to pick up the phone if we had any questions on the progress of the sale and they were dealt with quickly and efficiently. We dealt with the site owner, again via Caravansinthesun, regarding everything we wanted on our plot. (Decking, driveway, fencing etc) On arriving onsite a few weeks later, we were absolutely delighted with everything! All was exactly as we had asked. During our first few days we had one or two little teething problems but, once again, a quick phone call to Caravansinthesun and they were dealt with quickly. Another member of the team, Andrew, arrived onsite shortly after we took up residence to speak with us and ensure that everything was going well and that we were happy. I believe that the service they provide is exemplary and should be adopted by other companies. The friendliness of the team is exceptionally welcome but obviously it’s building up the confidence of your customers that is imperative and Caravansinthesun certainly managed to do this. From a very wary start when we were simple novices and wondering if we were doing the right thing, right through to moving into our lovely residence in Montreuil, our experience couldn’t possibly have been better or more hassle-free. It just goes to show where a simple, tentative phone enquiry can lead. First class service was provided from Caravansinthesun throughout the entire process and we are absolutely delighted with the way things were dealt and the way everything has turned out. We can recommend this company with total confidence. They are a great team! We now have our own little ‘Place in the Sun’, achieved smoothly and efficiently. Thank you, Caravansinthesun and everyone involved in helping us achieve our dream holiday home!
Alan & Sandra – 23/04/2014
A big thankyou to all staff at Caravans in the Sun, for their assistance in selling our mobile home. Although there was an initial delay in our mobile home being made ready by the original site owner,and transport had to be re-arranged due to the delay,Will,Melanie and the team in France persevered, and our mobile home was finally transported and resited on one of Caravans in the Suns own sites in the Vendee. My wife and i would have no hesitation in recommending Caravans in the Sun,the process was efficient, and everything was done as Will had originally stated it would be. Once the mobile was advertised a buyer was found very quickly and the proceeds of the sale transferred into our bnk quickly. It’s nice to find a company that has an honest and professional attitude when dealing on behalf of their customer. Thanks again, Regards
Dear Bill & Staff, Many thanks for your help in selling my home in Tenerife, we were delighted with your service, kind regards.
Helen Corrigan – 12/04/2014

CARAVANS IN THE SUN, NUMBER ONE CHOICE FOR YOUR HOLIDAY HOME IN THE SUN. I CANNOT PRAISE CARAVANS IN THE SUN HIGHLY ENOUGH. FROM THE FIRST CONTACT ENQUIRING ABOUT THE SELLING OF OUR MOBILE HOME TO THE COMPLETION OF THE SALE THE SERVICE AND ATTENTION TO DETAIL WERE FIRST RATE. THE SELLING FEES, ALONG WITH THE FRENCH TAX AND THE COMMISSION TO THE PRARIES DU LAC SITE WERE EXPLAINED IN FULL AT THE VERY BEGINNING SO I WAS IN NO DOUBT WHAT MY RETURN WOULD BE. JAMES AND MEL WHO MAN THE OFFICE WERE A DELIGHT TO DEAL WITH AND WILLIAM PRESENTED OUR MOBILE HOME TO BEST EFFECT TO ENSURE A SALE. WE HAD ALMOST DAILY UPDATES ON THE PROGRESS WHICH KEPT US UP TO DATE WITH EVERYTHING. ON COMPLETION THE MONEY WAS CREDITED TO MY BANK ACCOUNT VERY SWIFTLY.

I WOULD RECOMMEND CARAVANS IN THE SUN TO ANYONE CONSIDERING BUYING A CARAVAN ABROAD. JILL FARR A VERY SATISFIED CUSTOMER
Bryan Howe – 04/02/2014
Not to be outdone, we left it to Caravans in the Sun. Our choice mobile home was shipped out to Spain to a park as suggested by William Kay of Caravans in the Sun. Due to circumstances, we were unable to do a site visit before our purchase but felt very confident in the help and advice given by William and Eric of Caravans in the Sun. We are very happy with everything about the site, being fairly close to the coast, within easy reach of the mountainous countryside and most importantly it has excellent modern facilities.Your investment could not be in better hands. Caravans in the Sun, and Eric Heredia, who is based here in Spain are very helpful and professional, eliminating all your worries and problems, leaving you to just sit back and soak up the sun. Do not hesitate, let Caravans in the Sun fulfil your dream.
Sheila Hughes – 29/10/2013
After enjoying our caravan for a number of years, having to sell it was a sad process. Melanie was kind and understanding, she understood our situation and helped us through to a positive outcome.
Jennifer Chatburn – 28/10/2013
Sunny performance. I recently sold a static caravan through caravans in the sun.They moved the van from the site it was on in Spain to one of their sites on the costa del sol.I have nothing but praise for the professional way they conducted themselves dealing with a very difficult park owner especially there rep. Eric Heredia who was extremely patient,also the prompt payment when the transaction was completed and I would recommend them to anyone considering buying a home from them.
Hilary and family – 24/10/2013
We have recently sold our mobile home in France, and were very grateful to ‘find’ William and Melanie! Their service has been nothing but courteous and excellent – and the process of ‘losing’ our loved mobile home has been eased by Melanie’s pleasant contact at all times. No hitches – and we highly recommend.
Jill Farr – 09/10/2013
I am selling my mobile home in France through Caravans in the Sun, from my first contact I found Melanie and James delivered the highest possible level of service. They really listen to what you require and take an ongoing interest throughout the sales process.
Terry Saunders – 24/09/2013
My family have been very happy holidaying in France (Apremont), the park is always looking tidy and the facilities are constantly improving. The park staff are polite and helpful. Carol (Caravans in the Sun) representative was very helpful with a caring attitude. I found the transaction with Caravans in the Sun to be very smooth.
R.Smith – 20/09/2013
I can’t think of any improvements (Costa Del Sol, Malaga, Rincon de la Victoria).
Terryyeppers – 28/08/2013
CARAVANS IN THE SUN ARE THE NUMBER ONE COMPANY ONE FOR SALE AND PURCHASE OF CARAVANS. I WANTED TO MOVE ABROAD, TO SPAIN. LAST NOVEMBER IN GOT IN TOUCH WITH CARAVANS IN THE SUN. FROM THE FIRST TIME I SPOKE WITH THEM THEY WERE VERY HELPFUL. I CAME OVER TO SPAIN IN JANUARY TO VIEW ONE CARAVAN WHICH WAS FOR SALE. IT WASN’T QUITE WHAT I WANTED SO I PURCHASED A CARAVAN WHICH WAS BASED IN THE UK, CARAVANS IN THE SUN SHIPPED IT OVER TO THE PLOT WHICH I WANTED AT NO EXTRA COST. AFTER A FEW TEETHING PROBLEMS ALL WERE SORTED AND I AM VERY HAPPY HERE LIVING IN THE SUN. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND CARAVAN IN THE SUN FOR HELPFULNESS, COURTESY AND NOTHING IS TOO MUCH TROUBLE TO HELP YOU IF YOU HAVE ANY PROBLEMS. MAKE THE MOVE WITH CARAVANS IN THE SUN!!!!!
HV N.Wales – 27/06/2013
Many thanks for your good services in this matter – much appreciated.
Mr Moss – 17/05/2013
I would just like to thank you for the good and kind way the sale of the caravan went through, a credit to caravans in the sun and especially your part in the sale, many thanks.
William Norton – 02/04/2013
I needed only 2 days of viewing in the company of your representative Eric for me to decide to buy and settle in Antequera, he was patient and gave us all the time that we required. Subsequent business undertaken with Melanie in the office could not have been conducted in a more pleasant manner, her knowledge and help made my electronic dealings as smooth as could be, I must mention James in the UK who was readily available at the other end of the Email with rapid replies. All in all I think that the staff excelled in their duties. I have never undertaken such a purchase, and such a big costly purchase can be daunting but all the worry was taken form my shoulders by these folk.
Mr & Mrs R Morgan – 25/01/2013
Caravans in the Sun run an efficient service.
We found the sales reps friendly & helpful.
Terence David Artis – 25/01/2013
I was very happy with the way how ‘Will’ explained everything to me, he showed me the local area, the site and advised me on certain things, I Can’t praise him too highly. The mobile homes are very reasonably priced and ideal for anyone thinking of relocating to Spain.
Dimitrios Argyros – 16/01/2013
When my wife and I were looking for a holiday home abroad we came across Caravans in the Sun. Right from the start when we contacted them they were friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and cheery. When we got to France and to the site we met Carol, a lovely site agent who was very pleasant and to which nothing was too much trouble, even working on our behalf organising things we wanted for the static. As far as we are concerned all the staff we have had dealings with are a credit to the company and if you, like me, appreciate good old fashioned service and commitment from who you deal with, then you need look no further. Merci Mes Amis.
B Richardson – 10/01/2013
Extremely professional and friendly staff made viewing and subsequent purchase stress free.
William James Needham – 10/01/2013
Upon finding Caravans in the Sun. I found them to be very helpful and straight forward. A nice personal feel to their services. Good local knowledge. Booking a visit was easy and a pleasant experience. Professional and helpful. No pressure selling. It felt like a mini holiday.
Jeanette Fuller – 29/12/2012
The staff in the UK and France very helpful and friendly. Would have liked a wider range of mobile homes i.e. 3 beds. Very surprised by items included by previous owners. Prices fair but some vans did not match prices being asked. Very happy with our home albeit only 2 bed, looking forward to using it in 2013.
S Holyoake – 22/12/2012
Really looking forward to our first year on site, 2013.
J & T Watson – 7/11/2012
From first contact to hand over first class service from all staff. Nothing was too much trouble and good clear communications.
Anne Collins – 14/10/2012
Our experience was one to complete satisfaction, Melanie kept our daughter informed at all times on everything from when the lorry was going to turn up to pick the mobile home to when the payment was coming to us, we were really happy with how everything was handled and would recommend your company to anyone who wishes to buy or sell mobile homes. Special mention must go to Melanie who made the sale so smooth and painless. Thank you Melanie.
Shirley & Steve Milne – 27/08/2012
I would like to thank you for the whole buying process going so smoothly. Right from the weekend with Will showing us round, to the efficient purchase. We picked up the keys on the 10th August and we enjoyed our week picking up bits and pieces for the van. Syd and Jill were also a great help to us at the other end.
Laurie & Sandra A. – 24/05/2012
Very helpful and friendly service.
Peter Brown – 16/03/2012
From first looking at the website to meeting your rep things have gone smoothly, the company have been friendly and responded to our queries promptly.
Gary and Carol Jenkins – 30/01/2012
1. The service overall has been excellent.
2. Quick response from emails.
3. Very friendly staff at company office in UK whenever we made phone calls.
Druid – 30/01/2012
On the whole a good experience. I have purchased a caravan to be sited in Spain which I have not seen to date but I trust the M.D to do the job. He has already gone the extra mile for me. (Previously purchased a mobile home in France. Re-contacted to buy a home in Spain)
Hazel – 20/01/2012
I would like to say that I am more than happy with the service provided. A full guided tour with questions answered and recommendations given regarding local activities, shopping, basic van maintenance. The after sales service is very helpful both in the office and at the site. I am looking forward to my first caravan holiday in France. I would highly recommend to friends and family.
Peter Bohee – 10/01/2012
I am writing to thank you for helping me to sell my mobile home in Apremont. These days people are very quick to criticise which is fine if things are wrong but I do feel that when things go well it is right to offer praise as well. As you know this is the second home I have bought and sold on the park and on both occasions everything was dealt with by Caravans in the Sun in a professional and helpful way. With this sale a buyer was found and the sale progressed much quicker than I expected and I have been pleased by the way it has all gone and the help that Mel in particular gave. And most importantly the proceeds are in my account just days after you received them. So thank you for your help and I wish you well for the future. Should it be useful I would be quite happy for any of your prospective clients to email me if they want to ask about my experience.
Ann Holland – 20/12/2011
The whole experience proved to be fairly painless with their help. From meeting me at the factory – In Spain for the visit and when the van arrived in Spain – Very reassuring. Prices of the homes were quite reasonable and with your help air con and decking has now been added. You never let me down – Always replying promptly to my many concerns. Thanks to you all.
Tom Wyatt – 9/12/2011
From first making contact with the company they were friendly, efficient and helpful. They arranged the movement of my caravan to one of their sites and it was sold within a month using their excellent website (It would not have been sold on its original site). Settlement was made in full and thank you for your efforts, particularly Melanie and James.
Alan Power – 25/11/2011
Even though my purchase of a caravan didn’t work out, I was offered a complete refund and I would happily recommend ‘Caravans in the Sun’.
Graham and Carol – 22/11/2011
Please pass on our sincere thanks for all the effort that your company has made in transferring and siting our ABI Arizona. It is greatly appreciated by both Carol and myself. The help and assistance that you have provided us with is first class and please convey this to all the staff at the site.
Helga and Ken
Thank you for all your help. We appreciate it very much with best wishes.
Dave and Eileen Beech – 15/09/2011
Thank you for advertising our Damon Daybreak 3272. Thanks again for setting the pictures up on your web site in Portugal’s California Coast. We are really enjoying being here!! and very pleased with the home we bought from you. Even though we bought it without viewing it, just from pictures. It was just as expected.
Peter Mower – 14/08/2011
A very friendly and efficient company from start to finish. Now i can’t wait to move in!
Mr and Mrs Hunter – 04/08/2011
The service we received, all through the buying process, was excellent, everyone being very helpful, all questions being answered, no matter how insignificant they were. The viewing trip was a relaxed time, no hard sell, at no time did we feel pressurised into making a purchase, most enjoyable.
Rob Miller – 03/08/2011
Delighted with the unit, amazed by the inventory! I don’t think I have ever led such a ophiticated lifestyle, there’s something for everything. Stewart was great, waiting at the airport. Everyone is very kind. We are delighted. Thank you all. I’ve never been one for camping sites and was a bit doubtful – but I find I’m in a really nice holiday village with all the trimmings for a reasonable outlay. Wish I’d done it years ago.
J J Dimmer – 20/07/2011
We have never been to France and were very impressed with everything we saw, the site and the surrounding area.
Reginald.D.Bennett – 16/07/2011
From first contacting “Mobile Homes Abroad / Caravans in the Sun”, for the purchase of our mobile home until the actual sighting of the caravan, we had a really first class service, every detail, minor or otherwise was quickly dealt with and cheerfully, really wonderful!
It started with a French Magazine
It ended with a Pemberton in Bergerac,
The big bit in the middle was when you,
the team, Melanie+James Glover entered our
lives. It was a roller coaster of excitement
from there on.
You guys at ‘Stoke’ planned, organised
every possible detail, both in France + the
UK, and you did it with style.
It was FUN just to keep up with you
a hearty well done to both of you.
Love + regards
Marjorie + Desmond
Keep in touch – We will
Just a quick thank you for your help with the pictures and campsite map that you sent to me Melanie. Also your road map to view the mobile homes in Hull. Excellent customer service. Thanks again.
Mike O’Donnell – 20/6/11
The purchase of our new pemberton mobile home from Mobile Homes Abroad could not of been easier. A reasonable price with the friendliest efficient staff.
Mr and Mrs Pickstock
We were very happy with the service provided when selling our mobile home. Hassle free, friendly on the telephone and in person. All staff on site very helpful. Lovely people. Pricewise too, we got what we wanted.
Malcolm Boules – 27/3/11
From the first phone call you are treated with respect at all times. No pressure from sales staff, very helpful at all times. Try to assist at all times with a wealth of knowledge or product and area. First class company and people.
Kevin Perks – 25/3/11
Excellent, friendly and honest service. It was nice to deal with UK staff who obviously had a good knowledge of the sites.
Carole Froud – 20/3/11
An excellent initial viewing of vans in the UK. Inspection visit was outstanding, we were treated like royalty. The tour of the area by William was first class and he went out of his way to ensure we saw everything in 3 days. Site staff and residents so friendly and welcoming.
David and Linda – 18/3/11
We have found everyone very helpful by phone, email and from France, especially William who helped 200%. Thanks a lot.
