Open 365 days a year – Camping Cheques accepted, except in July and August

Situated on the route down through Spain towards the Algarve , Las Canadas is a must stop. Unassuming and very ordinary in many ways, it ticks all the boxes for standard camp-site features.
Where it wins, however, is its location. Not great for those who cycle ,very hilly (or at least those cyclists who do not emulate Lance Armstrong..) but given motorised transport, the places to go and see are numerous. (but more of that later)
The camp-site its self has a reception, small shop (essentials only)
bar and restaurant (open at uncertain times during the winter). One bonus is that the restaurant provides free WiFi (when they are open).
More Information on the restaurant can be found at our sister site http:/
There is a swimming pool for the summer and mini-golf. Tennis courts and plenty of shade. Most of the camp-site is taken up with static pitches that are used a lot at the weekends by the local Spanish as a "home from home",
but there are quite a few places for tourers. 6 amp electricity only (Unless by special arrangement for 10 amp)
Toilets and showers are reasonable – (toilet paper provided, and real toilets with seats) . Showers are "non token" and free running (don't you hate those press in ones ?)
The staff are very helpful , and on one blizzard night , kept reception open for the expected arrivals way past midnight.. And on that point, Las Canadas can be cold in winter (there is skiing locally) – because it is so high in the "mountains".
Around and about :

Hervas – Beautiful little town of narrow streets and long history (one of the oldest "Jewish Quarters" in Spain) : loads of places to go on a night out – particularly the "Taberna la Juderia"
which your friendly wanderer totally recommends.

La Alberca – step back 500 years in history – the architecture is simply amazing
