- 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.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

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.
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.
