Site 79 - Camping La Aldea.


When we last visited this site in January 2012 I wrote in my site report that

“ . . .This site was without doubt the most efficiently run site we have so far come across on the Iberian Peninsular. The pitches are a good size, level and well defined by hedges. The site trees had been well pruned so just about every pitch had good amounts of sunshine, photographs taken in the summer show that when the site trees come into leaf most pitches will have an adequate amount of shade. The facilities are of a good standard and kept scrupulously clean. A maintenance man was continually working on the site, which was pristine, the litter-bins not emptied once per day but at least half a dozen times.

There is a swimming pool but that was not usable at this time of year and a restaurant and bar that was, unfortunately it was large and, with few people on site using it, rather lacking in atmosphere but the food was good and prices of both food and drinks reasonable, the site was near enough to town to be able to stroll to the many bars and restaurants there.

The site was provided with sufficient washing machines at €3.00 per wash and driers were available but the weather was good enough to air-dry washing.

The static area is relatively small and kept separate from the touring area but the site gets busy at weekends when the Spanish arrive and they certainly know how to party.

Wi-Fi is available at virtually every pitch but is quite expensive and although we had a reasonably good and quick service throughout the day, from early evening it was quite hopeless.

The area has lots to do and see locally and is one we would not hesitate to recommend. . . “

The site is still very good but I would no longer call it the “most efficiently run” as, although it is still kept spotlessly clean and the bins emptied on a very regular basis, certain basic maintenance is being ignored.

It is however still a good site and I would still recommend it, but if you are planning to stay over a weekend you should bring earplugs as the Spanish in the long stay area love to party loud and late.
