Doctor's practice on site

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 you surely 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

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

Excellent shady site, clean pitches, helpful staff, well maintained07/27/2019

    Fabulous pool area with lawn, shade, outdoor showers, toilets, lifeguards & a small bar.

    2 Spotlessly clean shower/toilet blocks.

    Water source next to camping area, ie in electric supply tower with hose pipe or connector so no caring heavy containers for miles!

    Electric supply used 3 pin connector. Staff offered us an adaptor upon check in.

    Grounds well maintained, clean & tidy.

    Staff are super helpful & friendly. Do brush up on your Spanish though as not everybody speaks your language. This want a problem for us but it could be...

    There is a bar & restaurant on site but we didn't use either as we arrived late evening & by the time we had everything for our stay set up we were just too tired to walk down the hill to investigate further than the shower block. It sounded busy though!

    This site is in an area of outstanding natural beauty & despite its luxuries remains sympathetic to the area.

    Disliked: 

    Ants! Small, medium & HUGE wood ants - they pretty much left us alone though & we sited our pitch as far away from them as possible!

    Extra hard ground made hammering tent pegs into it a big challenge! Thankfully we always use rock pegs as wire ones'd be worse than useless. As it was we used a heavy rock to beat them into the ground as of mallet want up to the job! Gravel pitch was down to our requesting electricity - we think it could've been a touring pitch for motor homes.

    Attention, le tuyau d’arrivée d’eau non potable sur l’emplacement est situé à côté de celui d’eau potable et juste signalé par un point rouge. Ns ne l’avons dc vu que le matin qui a suivi notre arrivée ☹️

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 20 kilometres 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).

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.
