General

  • Mountain setting near a national park
  • In the province of Jaén near Albánchez de Mágina
  • Café, bar and two large pools

There's a comely little village near the mountain site of Camping El Cantonet, set in the Andalucian massif of the Sierra Mágina and in the province of Jaén. It's Albánchez de Mágina, home of an ancient Moorish fortress along with handsome white Andalucian buildings and traditional festivals and carnivals in the summer months – and then there are the Iberian and Roman remains, or just loafing around the scenic town plaza...

Away from town, El Cantonet is a quiet site, surrounded by the mountains and with several hiking, cycling and horse riding routes nearby. It has two pools, one for adults and one for kids, as well as a playground, a games/common room with TV, and a café and bar serving local cuisine and drinks.

Amenities include a laundry area, sinks, and two loo and shower blocks (ladies' and gents'), both with disabled access and hot running water.

Please note

Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 01/07 and 31/08 (subject to weather conditions).

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

    Very friendly. Beautiful setting. Lovely pool. Very full of local families who have permanent pitches (who were partying hard at weekend) but they were all super friendly and we were given a pitch at end which was quieter. Good value and super nice people running it.

    Disliked: 

    Not a dislike but should be aware that there isn't and grass/lots of open space outside of your pitch (pool has netting down around it).

From the manager...

Thank you very much for your rating.

    Superb location...stunning views

    Disliked: 

    Really small pitches. Toilets and showers were in a state of disrepair and absolutely filthy. Toilet flushes didn't work and the same waste was in the toilets for two days. There was rubbish on our pitch from previous campers. Shame because the host seemed like a nice man and the site has a great deal of potential.

From the manager...

I'm sorry for what just happened. the fact that the plots are small is inevitable in the camping have been for many years and and I have 2 years camping. and about the dirt in the plots I think it is not true because I take care of picking up the garbage that people like you leave on the plot or I have to remind you to change the turbo of your motorhome and leave it on the plot with a box. and the bathrooms are cleaned 3 times a day so we probably do not talk about the same campsite.
Thanks for your assessment. a greeting

    Very Friendly and helpful owners. Nothing was too much trouble. This was the first time we had ever pitched a motor-home and they could not have been more helpful.
    Wonderful scenery, small site, good bar/cafe.

    Tranquilidad, entorno, atención y amabilidad del personal. Tanto el resto de campistas como los propietarios nos han tratado fenomenal y han hecho nuesta estancia muy agradable. Pensamos repetir. Las parcelas estan delimitadas y tienen un tamaño correcto. Muchas rutas y opciones para practicar al aire libre.

    Disliked: 

    Quizas una modernización de los baños y duchas estaria bien, aun así son correctos.
    Wifi estaría bien.

Local attractions

Most of the Sierra Mágina mountain range is in the Sierra Mágina Natural Park near Camping El Cantonet, a place of varied terrain including steep slopes for mountain biking and hiking, caving opps among the limestone and dolomite rocks, and Jaén's highest peak Pico Pandera at 1,722 metres.

If you're spending some time in the national park (recommended), we also recommend seeing how many of its towns and villages you can get to – Torres, Jimena, Bélmez de la Moraleda, Jodar and the heritage gardens of Pegalajar are all here – and trying out the local dishes of the tapas bars and taverns (if you want a local foodie souvenir, pick up a few bottles of Sierra Mágina olive oil).

The city of Jaén is 45km away: lashings of more golden olive oil can be found here (Jaén is nicknamed the olive oil capital of the world), and there are several festivals held in the city alongside its cafés, museums, castle and cathedral.
