Camping Esponellá: The swimming pool and the paddling pool (photo added by manager on 01/05/2014)

General

  • Surrounded by a peaceful woodland and a small river
  • A short drive from the Lake of Banyoles
  • Three pools, restaurant, playground and sports courts

If you find the scorching Spanish sun just a bit too blazing while on hol at Girona's Camping Esponellá, how in luck are you. Because it's only a drive of 15 minutes or so from this peaceful place to the famed waters of the Lake of Banyoles, the biggest natural lake in Catalonia.

Such is the spectacular setting of this watery body that the 1992 Barcelona Olympics had its sailing events here, and the World Rowing Championships were held on the lake in 2004. You can of course mess about in boats on the waters by your very own self, by hiring a rowing vessel, taking a trip where someone else takes the tiller, or guiding yourself along in a canoe or kayak. (While keeping a watchful eye out for the Banyoles monster in the watery depths below, but of course…)

On site, three pools – one outdoor and two indoor – are to hand for more water-based shenanigans, and a small river is alongside the grounds for fishing and paddling. Out of the water, there's miniature golf if you're feeling (slightly) active under the splendid Spanish sun, and volleyball, tennis or football to have a go at for the truly energetic. Inflatable games and toys are set up at the playground in summer.

Sort a meal or takeaway at the site's Mediterranean restaurant or use the supermarket for a bit of what you fancy: either of these should be followed by a lingering drink at the Camping Esponellá bar, under the setting Spanish sun.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro) and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 23/06 and 31/08 (subject to weather conditions).

The indoor swimming pool is open between 04/02 and 07/01.

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

    This site is essentially run by kids, for kids. The site is old and well run down, lack of hot water in many of the toilet and washroom facilities. The site has kids running around at past midnight and is not suited to someone that wants a relaxing camping holiday...TRUST ME ITS NOT RELAXING !!!

  • Carretera de Banyoles - Figueres, Km. 8, Esponellá, Girona, Spain, 17832
  • Timezone Europe/Madrid CET (GMT+01:00)   GPS 42.1834°N 2.7938°E

Directions


On the A7 take exit 3, signposted Figueres, and continue on the N260 following directions for Figueres-Besalu. After Navata, near the service station, turn left in the direction of Banyoles. At the crossroad after the bridge over Fluvia, turn right and follow the signposts for the campsite.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

The spectacular waters of the Lake of Banyoles are lauded as the best place for watersports in all of Catalonia. Sailing, rowing, boat trips, canoeing and kayaking are all available at the lake; start off at the Club Natació 
Banyoles or Banyoles Watersports Centre to see what's on offer all around.

If you're not much for watersporting, you can cycle, hike, mountain bike or amble around the lake's perimeter, or lurk in its shoreside shrubbery for a birdwatching or nature spotting afternoon. Bike and Segways are available to hire, although possibly not the brightest idea if you're on a hidden birdwatching trip.

Also much recommended are the medieval town of Besalú, 15 minutes' drive away, the Dalí Museum in Figueras, within 25, and the 40-minute drive to the La Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park.

Girona is about 35 minutes away and Barcelona an hour and a half.
