  • Peaceful family site on the banks of the Tormes river
  • Under six kilometres from the ancient city of Salamanca
  • Pools, indoor play, car wash and restaurant for guests and locals
There’s lots to like about the Castile and Leon site of Camping Don Quijote, but you might care to focus on the most important first – the restaurant here is rather special. Open to guests and locals alike – always a good sign – this stellar spot is great for breakfast, lunch, dinner or just a good drink. There’s an extensive wine list, as well as a menu for kids and special dishes throughout the year… all to work through indoors or out on the renovated terrace, or to take away to have by your berth. All that, and dogs are allowed too. The setting of the site is worth a postcard home too: Camping Don Quijote is on the banks of the Tormes river, only 15 minutes’ drive from the splendid old city of Salamanca, and about 20 minutes’ walk (a kilometre and a half) from local village Cabrerizos. And on site? There are pools for grownups and tiddlers, a multigames zone for indoor play, and a soccer field for kicking a ball about. The completely overhauled amenities include separate toilets for ladies, gents and guests with reduced mobility, hot water 24 hours a day, baby bathtubs and changing tables, and a laundry area with dishwashing sinks; the site also has a car wash. And one more, most excellent, aspect of that Camping Don Quijote restaurant? Let the staff know if you’re celebrating something and they’ll make your night go with an extra zing.

Elik A. The reviewer booked through Pitchup.com

Electric optional hardstanding and grass motorhome pitch

Liked: Nice and welcoming staff, the place is very organised and easy to find what you need. Very clean. The place is right over the river bank and it's great for walking and cycling.

Disliked: It would have been nice if the pool would open earlier then 12, and if they would have offered kayaks and paddle board as part of the service

Jeffrey H. The reviewer booked through Pitchup.com

Electric optional hardstanding and grass motorhome pitch

Liked: Probably the best camp site we stayed at in Spain during our 4 weeks there. We were recommended it by another British Motorhome couple we met enroute and its just perfect. Friendly staff who speak english, well layed out with good facilities and spacious plots with privacy hedges mostly. Next to a lovley river you can swim in and hire Kayaks. We saw a turtle and large fish and locals pulling loads of Yabbies (crayfish) out with baited nets! Best has an absolutely brilliant Restaurant with seating outside very popular and need to book, delicious food and very friendly. We had a great day from there in Salamanca as you can get a bus from there only 15 minutes walk along riverbank to bus stop takes 20 mins.

Disliked: I can't think of anything to not like! Wish they were all like this!

Local attractions

Salamanca, of course… drive or cycle from Camping Don Quijote to this spectacular city, a university town, UNESCO World Heritage Site and former European Capital of Culture. Where to start? The Don Quijote team recommends just getting lost among the city streets; every corner, they say, is worth it, and at any time of year too. If you prefer your sightseeing time to be more itinerary-based, make first for Plaza Mayor, often called the most beautiful central plaza in the country, and stay until dark to see the baroque architecture light up. And then? Other Salamanca sightseeing options (there are many) include taking one of the four routes around the city, pottering around the Casa Lis Art Nouveau and Art Deco museum, having a look at the Escuelas Mayores courtyard at the University of Salamanca, and sampling yet more local cuisine such as chanfaina (steamed rice with pork) and hornazo meat pies – drop into the visitors’ centre in the San Millán Church for all the info you need.
