Campsite near Granada for The Alhambra and Skiing

Camping Las Lomas in Güejar Sierra is about 20 minutes from Granada city. A beautifully located site with views of the snowy-peaks of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the Reservoir Pantano de Canales on the Rio Genil.

The reservoir fed by the meltwater from the Sierras is clear and the views almost alpine. Ask for plots 70 - 74 at the top of this sloping site (but levelish pitches) for great views.

In the Natural Park of Sierra Nevada yet almost on the edge of the city this makes a great touring site. You can also explore The Alpujarras or take in the 75 km or so to the Costa Tropical which is the Granada coast to see Motril, Salobreña, La Herradura or further afield.

There´s nothing in the world quite like getting back to nature. Lying on the grass, watching the stars and listening to the sounds of nature.
