Alan Rogers Awards – Results 2011

The Alan Rogers Campsite Awards were launched in 2004 and have proved a great success. 

Our awards have a broad scope and before committing to our winners, we carefully consider more than 2,000 campsites featured in our guides,  taking into account comments from our site assessors, our head office team and, of course, our readers.

Our award winners come from the four corners of Europe, from southern Portugal to Croatia, and this year we are making awards to campsites in 10 different countries. 

Needless to say, it’s an extremely difficult task to choose our eventual winners, but we believe that we have identified a number of campsites with truly outstanding characteristics. 

In each case, we have selected an  outright winner, along with two highly commended runners-up. Listed below are full details of each of our award categories and our winners for 2011.
