Lovely site but in decline? 28/05/2016

    The site is in a beautiful position in the Sierra Nevada. We spent 6 nights there and every day we did a different hike in the mountains, setting off on foot from the campsite. There are lovely Alpujarra villages within a short drive and the town of Pitres is a kilometre away. The site is very green with plenty of shade. The facilities were very clean.


    When we arrived there was no record of our reservation at reception. It wasn't a problem as the site was more or less empty. We were given a map with marked pitches and told we could park anywhere. In fact it was impossible to make out the limits of the pitches. Once again, no problem as we just chose the best position but if the site had been busy it would have been chaos. Many of the toilet doors in the men's block did not lock.
