A mountain setting, a river valley and a peaceful place a couple of hours from Madrid: settle down for some traditional Spanish camping among well-maintained facilities at Ávila's .
Set in the old and colourful town of Candeleda on the southern side of the Gredos Mountains in the Tiétar river valley, this quiet campsite is in an area popular with tourists – and natives – coming from the Madrid area, in a region dotted by high-up and traditional Castile and León villages. Hiking, mountaineering and all manner of outdoor activities can be arranged among the cliffs and crags of the surrounding mountains.
In between all this activity, have restful days on site at the Candeleda pools – one for adults and one for kids – or at the grassy sunbathing areas for snoozing sedately under one's sunnies. The bar and restaurant is open daily and serves a good selection of local dishes indoors or on its terrace.
If you're still feeling active, race along to the sports area for a spot of tennis, football or basketball, or to the padel/tennis court: ask in reception for the sports equipment you need.
The well-maintained facilities are all in the main building, with free hot showers, toilets, a washing-up area and a launderette with washing machines and tumble dryers. Other amenities include a chemical disposal point and free wifi.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
