General

  • Quiet family-friendly site 45km from Girona
  • Set between three national parks
  • Pool, paddling pools, restaurant, bar and kids' club

Travelling around Spain to merge yourself in nature and culture? Camping Vell Empordà should hit the spot: it's between three national parks, is about 45km from the cracking city of Girona, and is close to Salvador Dalí's home town of Figueres.

Vell Empordà is a quiet family-friendly site, set on the outskirts of the small town of Garriguella, and has a restaurant serving local food, a bar with a large terrace, and a supermarket stocked with a good variety of local products. The outdoor pool and the paddling pools are set near the restaurant terrace – just the ticket for keeping an eye on the kids while you have a quick (or leisurely) bite…?

Other facilities and amenities include a playground, ping pong and pool tables, a sports court for football and basketball, and loo/shower blocks with free hot water.

The team organises activities for kids in high season and bikes can be hired on site for gentle explores of the surrounding area.

    Rien de particulier

    Disliked: 

    J'avais réservé ma place et je suis arrivé à l'heure prévue. J'avais du mal à trouver l'entrée du site parce qu'il faisait nuit et rien n'était allumé. C'est à dire, il n'y avait pas d'éclairage. J'ai appelé le camping et ils m'ont dit qu'ils étaient fermés. J'ai insisté que j'avais une réservation et ils ont allumé l'entrée. Ce n'était pas très accueillant.

From the manager...

Monsieur,
Nous avons dépassé vos critiques et nous en sommes désolés.
Mais précisément ce vendredi, nous avons un problème avec l'électricité des toilettes des hommes, qui sont au centre du camping et illuminent l’une des plus grandes surfaces.
La réparation a été répétée samedi.

Le camping est actuellement en basse saison (du 23 september aun 15 Mei) et nous essayons d'économiser de l'électricité .
Nous sommes vraiment désolés.
Merci beaucoup

Local attractions

Three national parks, you say? Oh yes – Camping Vell Empordà is in a highly smart setting between three of the Spain's best: mountainous Parque Natural de L'Albera, seasidey Cap de Creus, and the marshland of the Aiguamolls de l'Empordà.

The fishing village of Cadaqués, in the middle of the Cap de Creus peninsula and just under 18km from the site, was a favoured inspirational spot of one S Dalí as well as one P Picasso; have a look at the Salvador Dalí House-Museum if you want to feel artistically inclined. Dalí's home town of Figueres is also a short drive away.

Just over 40km away and across the border into France is the city of Perpignan, the capital of the Pyrénées-Orientales department and home of the thirteenth-century Palace of the Kings of Majorca. This is an artistically inclined area too: Señor Dalí once hailed its railway station waiting room as 'the centre of the Universe', claiming that this is where he got his best ideas.
