- Countryside park with views over a nature reserve
- At the Laguna de Fuente de Piedra
- Pool and on-site restaurant
No, this certainly isn't a city site. Camping Rural Fuente de Piedra is in a splendid countryside spot with views over a local nature reserve and the Laguna de Fuente de Piedra, which is the biggest natural lake in the Iberian Peninsula and a birdwatching (and flamingo) haven.
If you do fancy some city slicking, Córdoba, Sevilla and Granada are all about an hour away: meanwhile, dump your stuff and have a day swimming, walking and snapping flamingos at the lagoon or hiking and biking in the surrounding area.
When you arrive dustily back on base, a splash in the pool open in summer is the activity to opt for... and then wander over to the site restaurant, which serves takeaway and choice Andalucian cuisine.

From Malaga, take the A45 and then the A92. After approximately 25km, take exit 132. Continue on the MA701 for about 650m. At the roundabout, take the second exit and turn left after approximately 500m.
The local lagoon of Fuente de Piedra is known throughout Spain for its birdlife – over 170 species have been recorded here – and we reckon it's famed too throughout the world for its flamingos...
The colony of pink feathered ones that descend on the lagoon to breed in spring is the second biggest colony in Europe (after the French Camargue region) and the only inland site on the continent where flamingos breed. It's quite the sight – make sure your smartphone/camera is fully loaded with charge.
The city of Antequera 20 minutes from Camping Rural Fuente de Piedra is also a top Pitchup.com pick, partly for its good self and partly because it's known as the heart of Andalusia for its centrally placed spot among Málaga, Granada, Córdoba, and Seville. Go here for several old churches, the Roman baths and Roman villa, the Alcazaba fortress, and about 80% of Málaga province's arty hoard.
A bit further away but still easily accessible at around 45 minutes are the beaches and resorts of the glittery Costa del Sol, and within about an hour you'll be able to arrive at the cities of Córdoba, Sevilla or Granada.
Nature sorts and conservationists might also like a look at Málaga's El Refugio del Burrito, the Spanish site set up as a subsidiary of the UK Donkey Sanctuary.
