Very easy access to the site and the pitches from the main road

General

  • Peaceful adults-only touring park set among mountains and vineyards
  • Five minutes' drive to the edge of the Sierra del Carche Regional Park
  • Tapas restaurant and bar serving cured meats and locally produced wine

In need of a bit of Camping El Tranquilo on your hols? This adults-only touring park is set in a small hamlet just outside the traditional town of Pinoso and promises just that. (Happily, though, this mountainous countryside of the Alicante/ Murcia border right near Sierra del Carche Regional Park is an area scattered with vineyards and historic working hamlets, so you're never going to be too far from a fine wine or a fiesta.)

Camping El Tranquilo is safe, secure and accessible, with easy access points, wide roads and obstacle-free turning areas. It has roomy pitches, surrounded by olive and almond groves as well as orange and lemon trees.

Games of boules can be followed by a cooling dip in the outdoor pool, after which you can relax with a beer or a glass of locally produced wine at the on-site bar while you watch the sun sink over the Sierra del Carche. Barbecues and picnics are strongly encouraged, but if the heat becomes too much and you're not up for slaving over hot charcoals then fret not: the on-site tapas bar serves local cuisine including salads, cured meat platters and traditional local dishes.

Camping El Tranquilo is a dog-friendly site and there are plenty of safe off-road walking trails around the site.

Please note

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 01/01 and 31/12 (subject to weather conditions).

This is an adults-only site. Children under the age of 17 are not allowed on site.

Electricity is not included in the booking fee and will be payable on-site at €0.30 kw/h (meter in place).

    Everything, Extra large pitches, excellent toilet and shower block. Plenty of hot water and laundry facilities. Excellent WiFi. Very good bar and restaurant. The best campsite we have stayed at for walking, our dog loved it. It's a must for all you walkers out there, no matter if you just want a short stroll or a challenge.We did the challenge and walked up the highest peak in the area, views are breathtaking. Our hosts could not have been more helpful and the minibus which runs into town three times a week is a big plus.

    This site should not be described as tranquil due to a large number of dogs barking nearly all night and day from neighbouring farms and adjacent property. There is a bar and restaurant but unfortunately you had to order your food the day before!!! and did not open until 8:00pm. The swimming pool is unusable this time of year due to not being heated. The ground is very rough terrain being a mixture of stone and granite which is typical of the area. The shower block has limited hot water or not at all and is not heated so it was always cold being the time of year it should be warm early morning. I would not visit this site again in the winter months.

From the manager...

We are very Sorry that you did not enjoy your stay, and are disappointed that you did not report any of your problems to reception whilst you were here! We did explain on your arrival that due to this time of the year the Christmas fiestas can be sometimes disturbing to the local dogs.
The bar and restaurant were open daily for breakfast and lunches and as you were informed when you booked that we were operating only fixed menus for this Christmas eve, Christmas day and Boxing day, once New years day has gone we will revert back to the open menu.
The shower block has unlimited hot water (other than the planned maintenance that occurred during your stay) and is heated during the morning and again in the late afternoon / evening, due to the unexpected cold spell the times were not sufficient but this was acted on once it was reported by one of the campers.

we are sorry that the dog barking on the pitch adjacent to you made your stay unpleasant, but we did notify the gentleman and when he returned to his caravan he did apologise and did not realise that his dog was noisy when he went out and left it as usually he takes it with him

Local attractions

If walking or cycling's your thing, the off-road trails in the immediate area will take you along roads, up forested hillsides and past old farmhouses; for photographers and artists, this is a pretty excellent spot.

Lots of little villages are within easy reach of Camping El Tranquilo too, such as upmarket Las Encebras, with its own local bar restaurant, Alguena and its lively café-bar and restaurant scene and Sunday market, plus Paredon and Raspay. For more food and markets, Pinoso under 10 minutes' drive away has over 70 restaurants and bars as well as greengrocers, bakeries, butchers, fishmongers and a Saturday market.

For wildlife watching, the Sierra del Carche Regional Park, included in the Natura 2000 Network, is home to bats, hedgehogs, rabbits, shrews and the occasional wild cat, badger and marten. Also of interest in the park are several archaeological sites, from well-preserved Bronze Age Iberian settlements – including the Cave of the Castellar, the Castillicos del Salero and the Romanía – to a Roman aqueduct in La Romanía and several Roman settlements in the north and the west.
