General

  • Peaceful rural site with stunning mountain views
  • Outdoor swimming pool
  • In an area with some of the lowest rainfall in Europe

Rain, rain, go to Spain? Er no: Almeria's Oro Verde Camping is in a sunny Spanish region that sees the least rain anywhere in the land and has an excellently arid climate even in winter… And a billy bonus: it's in an area that sees the most sunshine in Europe too.

The campsite is in a peaceful as well as a warm place, set in an olive grove about six and a half kilometres from the little town of Tabernas (yes, cowboy, the one where the Westerns are shot). Although it's rural, access to the site is level and simple from the N340.

Settle down by the pool here to bask in quiet, or use Oro Verde as a base to get to the wildlife and birdwatching of the nearby Los Filabros and Alhamillas mountain ranges and the nature reserves all around. The coast and the smashing old city of Almeria are both within about 25 kilometres away.

Amenities on site include a heated facilities block, washing machine and laundry facilities. A communal barbecue area is to hand for grilling up dinner.

    nothing ,we cancelled

    Disliked: 

    Due to illness we were forced to cancel. We have not received a refund minus 15% so not particularly impressed by campground or your service

From the manager...

I received the cancellation while on holiday, so I informed my manager. The client said they would definitely be coming in the future and did not ask for a refund. I apologise for the delay, due to my misconstruction.

    Absolutely nothing, the facilities were at best awful, the pool was dirty with broken tiles, the showers and toilets were a health hazard.

    Disliked: 

    The whole site.

No es un camping. Horrible. Sin cuidar. Instalaciones sin seguridad. 18/08/2017

    Nada. Al contrario, tuvimos que dejar la estancia.

    Disliked: 

    Nadie nos atendió a la llegada. Abrimos la puerta y entramos, la señora (la dueña de la casa, porque no es terreno de camping, solo es un terreno de patio de la casa) nos dijo que vendría, tardó media hora. No había sombra, ni césped, ni suelo... Todo era terreno abandonado, con pinchos y plantas mustias y secas. La puerta solo estaba cerrada, sin seguridad. Cualquiera podía entrar y salir, y eso si, sin la dueña cerca, porque no reside allí ni tiene zona de recepción ni nada. La piscina tampoco es como aparece en las fotos. Se encuentra pegada a una casa, la cual también se alquila, y tienes que acceder a la casa para ir a la piscina. Al comentarle a la señora que nos había engañado, que eso no correspondía con las fotos, nos contestó que "en primavera si que era así, cuando sacaron las fotos", le respondí q eso no se debe hacer así, que es estafar, igual que buscar ciertos ángulos en las fotos, y me respondió con su espalda, eso hizo, me dejó allí y se metió en la casa. Me siento estafada, por ella y por pitchup, pensé que disponiais de profesionalidad, y ya he visto que no, pero para cobrar si, no? Creo que deberíais tener más cuidado con vuestras ofertas porque no son reales. Hablé bien de vosotros, de la página y el camping porque vi que la web era oficial, pero he fracasado. Me siento estafada. No comento los puntos posteriores porque no deja la opción de negativo todo, porque esa sería mi opinión.

    Les sanitaires sont propres. La piscine correct. Pas de mauvaise surprise pour un prix modique (15€ pour 5)

    Disliked: 

    Très difficile à trouver. Pas d'accueil (réservation par le net). Les parcelles ne sont pas très entretenues.

Local attractions

This be spaghetti Western land: Almeria's status as the most arid region in Europe and the setting of the continent's only desert means it's been a mecca for film directors seeking wide open Wild West style landscapes.

Oro Verde's local town of Tabernas edges the Tabernas Desert where many a Western was shot; if this is your filmy thing, get along to the three film sets of Fort Bravo, Western Leone and Mini Hollywood to find out more among their live entertainment, cactus gardens, zoo and waterpark.

Away from celluloid, hiking and cycling the desert landscape are other popular pursuits around here (but do bring warm clothes as it can get chilly as evening falls), along with wildlife watching in the several nature reserves surrounding the campsite, and forays to the coast and the clean quiet beaches of Retamar.

The Cabo de Gata Nationsl Park, home to great flocks of flamingoes and other wading birds, is a little further along the coast.

Prefer to take things up a gear or two? An international racing circuit open all year round is just down the road from the site.
