Camping El Sur: Overlooking the Ronda Mountains

General

  • Quiet site among olive trees and with spectacular mountain views
  • A short drive from Ronda and close to three natural parks
  • Pool, miniature golf and bar-restaurant with tapas and homemade cakes

Might you care for lush mountain views on your Spanish holiday? How about pitching up in the province of Malaga, surrounded by three national parks in a setting among olive trees, centenary trees and forests – and a piffling distance from the fab old town of Ronda? Sure you would... so settle down for some significant time at Camping El Sur.

El Sur is a peaceful, roomy and family-friendly site, close to the Sierra de Grazalema, Sierra de las Nieves and Los Alcornocales natural parks. Stacks more spectacular sights are within easy driving distance: ask the knowledgeable El Sur reception team for info on the best attractions and scenic car ride routes.

Should you care to stick around on site for a spell (you surely should), the modern facilities include miniature golf, ping pong tables and a summer pool scenically set among greenery and flowers. A bar-restaurant serves traditional local food along with tapas and homemade cakes – you might very much care for all these foodie goodies also.

Please note

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 01/06 and 30/09 (subject to weather conditions).

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

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

No cars/motorbikes by the pitch/unit. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

    A terrific site with pool, bar, attentive staff and spotless shower and toilet facilities. It's an easy walk downhill to Ronda and a taxi back to the site was €10 - €12.

    Disliked: 

    Rock hard surface for awning pins. Extremely hard pins required.

    This is a great place to stay, booked for 2 nights originally but stayed for 6! Even then sad to leave ! Lovely site, toilets and showers were good, place to wash pots and pans, good size pitches too. It’s beautiful of an evening and the scenery is impressive up on the hill just by the campsite. A bit of a walk into town but so worth it! Taxi took just a few minutes.

    A special shout out to the lady on reception ( I believe she is french and sorry I didn’t catch the name ) who made the stay that much more enjoyable. So polite and friendly and always wanted to do more for us. Every morning she would greet us with a smile and was just so happy! Lots of knowledge about the area too. And knows a few different languages too which really made it easy!

    Thank you so much !!!

    Disliked: 

    The only thing I would say is that the toilets and showers are swept daily which is great, but I didn’t see them being cleaned properly and only once in the 6 days were the ladies and gents closed for a short time for cleaning. But that is all nothing else bad at all!

    Extremely clean, flat/level pitches, not crowded, and quiet

    Disliked: 

    The only thing to be aware of is that check-in DOES NOT close at 21:00 (like it said on the PitchUp listing), but rather closer to 20:00 (as noted on the sign outside the Reception when we arrived -- sadly just before 21:00).

    Thankfully the security on staff was wonderful and very helpful and was able to let us in - thank you Pepe!

Local attractions

To the mountaintop city of Ronda first, for shops, restaurants, tapas bars and Moorish sites such as the Arab baths, Ronda bullring (one of the oldest in Spain), the Palacio de Mondragón and the gardens – and spectacular views – of Paseo de Blas Infante. Ronda's also famed for its El Tajo gorge, where the Guadalevín river gushes through the city centre: stop off on the 18th-century bridge spanning the gorge for stunning views over the Serranía de Ronda mountains.

This beaut part of Andalusia is a land of high peaks, Spanish fir forests and the white villages of the Ruta de los Pueblos Blancos and their buildings dating back to Phoenician and Roman times. The best known of these is probably Setenil de las Bodegas, where houses hang over the Trejo river; other must-sees are Olvera, Grazalema, Algodonales, El Gastor and Zahara de la Sierra, all most picworthy indeed.

Caves, caverns, chasms and caving are popular picks too: take a trip to see the 25,000 year old wall paintings of Cueva del Hundidero-Gato and Cueva de la Pileta, making up Andalusia's biggest cave system. The caves are about half an hour's drive away and can be visited in groups of up to 20 – booking in advance is essential, so ask the Camping El Sur reception team to assist.

Fishing, horse riding, paragliding, hot air ballooning and greenway cycling trails are all within easy reach.
