General

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

Off to Spain to merge yourself in nature and culture? should hit the spot: it's between three national parks, is about 45km from the cracking city of Girona, and is close to Salvador Dali'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.

    We travelled throughout Spain for 10 days staying in different site each night so we have a good comparison I think. That was the very first camping site. It is difficult to be overly excited about it as it was raining.
    The location was good - close to few nice towns. The biggest swimming pool we saw.

    Disliked: 

    The food in restaurant
    I had shower twice and both times it was cold. I think it was only me being unfortunate as my male friend had super hot shower.

Local attractions

Three national parks, we say? Oh yes – 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 Dali as well as one P Picasso; have a look at the Salvador Dalí House-Museum if you want to feel artistically inclined. Dali'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 Dali once hailed its railway station waiting room as 'the centre of the Universe', claiming that this is where he got his best ideas.
