This was a quick fix on our way to Madrid. The campsite is large, pitches level and water + electricity offered at the pitch. Not so great - toilettes have no seats (all!!), shower head was not well connected, and the restaurant not open out of season. They did offer 10% reduction to a nearby restaurant which was good.

Went in March on the way up to the ferry. Lots of procesionary catarpilers every where, which is bad news if you are travelling with a dog. No facilities open on site at this time of year. Showers are ok, but it is freezing in the shower block. Toilet emptying facilities are disgusting, looks like they are never cleaned.

Site well situated just off the motorway.Easy to find. Owner was very efficient ,but had little bedside manner. Pitches are level and spacious. Each with it's own water, electric point and waste disposal. Do not miss visting two local historic towns ,Baeza and Ubeda.

Stopped for 2 nights on our way north. Site nearly empty, which was fine as plenty of room around us but did look a little sad with all the long stay vans/tents closed up for the winter. Facilities fine, wifi ok most of time but not sure how it would be in busier season. Great scenery and dog walks.

Good clean site with pool (no beds). Facilities spotless and cleaned regularly. Free wifi which worked all over the site. Beautiful mountain surroundings with walks nearby. Within walking distance of village and local shops and bars. Little English spoken. Supermarket by reception for bread and ice. Will definitely stop here again.

Stayed here early Feb in our motorhome and what a great find it was. Friendly reception but not much (if any) English spoken, however a few smiles and a bit of pointing did the trick! The campsite is in the heart of the Despenaperros national park which is an absolutely stunning area with fantastic walking routes. Well spaced pitches onsite... More
