General

  • Mountain setting an hour from Madrid
  • In a regionally protected area for birds
  • Pool, barbecue facilities, café, bar and restaurant

What mountainous views are these – and all only an hour from Madrid. And in an area of outdoorsy activities too: if you're staying at Camping El Canto La Gallina we gently insist you must have a go at local hiking, or horse riding, or cycling, or fishing, or striding over the high hills of the Sierra de Guadarrama...

El Canto La Gallina is about 600 metres from the village of Valdemaqueda, part of a regionally protected area for birds and birdwatching, and in a pine grove with topping mountain views. Barbecue facilities are to hand if you want to cook in such splendid surrounds, but if lifting a finger is the last thing you want to do on hol, a café, bar and restaurant are also around to potter along to.

Camping El Canto La Gallina also has an outdoor pool, a football pitch, a basketball court, a playground, mini golf and a supermarket. And – always a bonus if you're on holiday with small bumpy sorts – a doctor's practice is around on site too.

Please note

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 11/06 and 04/09 (subject to weather conditions).

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

    Zona de acampada en pleno bosque de pinos. Muy cuidado y limpio. El personal es muy amable y los precios del bar y supermercados razonables. Volveremos sin lugar a dudas. Una muy buena experiencia en familia y en contacto total con la naturaleza.

    En general todo. Instalaciones adecuadas y limpias. Piscina grande, con mucho césped y sombra. Parques infantiles modernos. Restaurante con menú del día buena calidad precio. Trato del personal amable. Buen ambiente entre vecinos.

    Disliked: 

    Estábamos en parcela de gravilla y es un poco molesto para acampar con tienda. Los baños muy limpios pero con algunos detalles para reforma (plaquetas rotas, pintura). A la entrada del camping hay un corral con cabras, gallinas, patos. Los niños les dan de comer, nos gustaría q se delimitara la visita como otra actividad del camping y se ofreciera comida adecuada para ellos. También hay un pastor alemán q pasa mucho tiempo solo y quizá poco cuidado.

Directions


By car:
From Madrid take the highway 501 towards San Martín de Valdeiglesias. Turn right at the roundabout in Navas del Rey. Turn left at the petrol station in Robledo de Chavela and keep driving towards Valdemaqueda where you will find 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

Hikes, strolls, bike routes, excursions, birdwatching, fishing, horse riding… whichever flavour of outdoor activity you fancy, the Camping El Canto La Gallina reception staff can sort you out with some top tips. Plenty of sporty options are also around San Martín de Valdeiglesias 20 kilometres from the site.

Also 20km away is San Lorenzo del Escorial, the mountain town on the southern slopes of Mount Abantos. Its Monastery of El Escorial and surrounds are a UNESCO World Heritage Site; more modernly, the town's Valley of the Fallen is a mighty funeral monument built in the 1940s and 1950s to commemorate the dead of the Spanish Civil War. (Look for the huge cross: we confidently predict you can't miss it.)

If you're up for making a full day of it, use the site as a base from which to get to Madrid and Ávila, both 50 kilometres away, Segovia 80 kilometres away, and Toledo, within about 100 kilometres.
