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

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

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

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

  • Liked: 

    A very warm and friendly welcome, everything clean and beautifully laid out with individual pitches. Would definitely recommend to anyone. There are always times when you need to rest in the peace and quiet, the fact that no children are allowed gives some of us a chance to sit or eat out without the noise of children, ball games or crying. It really is a choice sometimes and Tranquilo best provides this.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing!!

From the manager...

  • Liked: 

    We were looking for peace and quiet with no children and El Tranquillo delivered. Big pitches, pool, restaurant, bar, open countryside and nice owners. A bit too breezy for the awning but loved our 2 night stay.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing much. Would have liked some shelves / flat tops by the wash hand basins to 'plonk' our stuff when tooth cleaning - very minor gripe!!

From the manager...

Thank you for your positive feedback and for taking the time to post this review. we are glad you enjoyed your stay, we will look in to the issue with not having shelves on the sink you mention

    Easy to find the campsite, handy (by car) for the local town of Pinoso for bars, restaurants and suprmarkets.
    On arrival, Carolina was very friendly, and provided lots of information, advice and help, as this was our first caravan stay in Spain.
    We were given a choice of the large touring pitches. There was plenty of space for the caravan, awning and car.
    Facilities were excellent and clean.
    We had a great stay and will be back.

    Pool. Sanitary facilities. Friendly owner.

    Disliked: 

    Hard standing pitch contained very sharp large stones.
    Lack of shade throughout the site.
    Howling dogs in adjacent properties.
    WiFi only worked in the bar area.

From the manager...

We are concerned that you did not enjoy your stay, but are disappointed that you did not speak with us during your stay and explain your issues !!, we do advertise on our web site that there is no shade currently over the site which is perfect for the winter sun seekers, We did explain that he free wifi at your time of stay was limited to the bar and outside seating area, This has now been addressed and removed and Wifi vouchers can be purchased for full site coverage. We do understand that it is very difficult to please all of the people all of the time and our rural site will not be for every one.

    The site has a beautiful setting among olive groves and vin yards with a dramatic mountainous surround. It’s quiet.... other than then sound of birds and a particularly lovely donkey in the adjacent field.

    The site is well organised and very clean, with many long term campers. The owners keep very high standards.

    Does not allow children.

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.
