Camping Spain

by Guest

Spain lies on the Iberian Peninsula, bordered by Andorra, France, and Portugal. At the heart is the capital Madrid, but throughout the country, the people and cultures are as diverse as the landscapes. It's a wonderful country characterized by delicious regional food, wines, thousands of kilometers of rugged coastline and island, medieval castles, and Roman architecture. With some much outdoor activities on offer in Spain, its unsurprising that there are so many campsites available to travellers. It would simply be impossible to list every campsite in the country as they are in the thousands, but here are some of the most interesting and luxurious from around the country from Cool Camping.

Green Mountain Yurt

Granada, Spain

The Green Mountain Yurt campsite, located in the olive groves and hills outside the pretty city of Granada, offers a true glamping experience. Nestled in the Andalusian landscape, tents, camper vans, and motorhomes are not permitted on the campsite, there is just one beautiful eco yurt available which offers a double bed, private bathroom, and outdoor cooking facilities. It is best suited for couples, though families with children are permitted, a little extra tents will be pitched by the owners to accommodate the little ones. Inside the yurt, a circular semi permanent tent structure, is fully kitted out with everything you would find in a luxury hotel room. This is a large double bed with side tables, a living area on one side of the yurt with table, chairs, and a sofa. Double glazed windows keep it snug during the cooler months, but still allows guests to look out over the wonderful countryside. Just outside the yurt, you will find an outdoor area with table and chairs where guests can eat al fresco. The cooking area is covered, but outside the tent, and has everything you need to cook up camp dinners including a stove, fridge, sink with running water, storage area, and kitchenware like plates and cutlery. To the other side of the yurt is an eco friendly bathroom with hot shower, and a dry compost toilet. Solar panels keep the water hot throughout the day. There is plugs to charge your electronics and internet access is available, but who needs it when you are surrounded by such beautiful Spanish countryside. Nearby, guests can go hiking in the Sierra Nevada National Park, go take part in optional adventure activities like canyoning or horse riding. It's also possible to take refreshing dips in the waterfalls just down the road. When guests arrive at the campsite, there are drinks and dinner waiting for you. You can order further meals in advance, or cook up your own food using the produce grown in the gardens. There are several excellent eateries just a short distance away from the camp offering Spanish and regional classics. The camp is open between April and October, but as there is just one yurt to rent, you'll need to get in there quick to avoid disappointment. There is a minimum stay of 4 nights which costs around US $100 per night. To reach the camp, you will need to fly into Malaga and take the bus to Granada or rent a car and drive.
