Alan Rogers Awards – Results 2012

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 2012.

Alan Rogers Special Award 2012

A Special Award is made to campsites which have suffered a very significant setback and have not only returned to their former condition, but can fairly be considered to be even better than before.
