Campsite in Las Alpujarras, Granada - Balcon de Pitres

Camping Balcon de Pitres is in Pitres one of the many white-washed hillside towns in the Alpujarras an area on the southern slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountain range in the province of Granada, Andalucia.

Camping Balcon de Pitres Bar


This is a fairly small (for Spain) family-run site with loads of trees for shade, grassy pitches which is very unusual in the south of Spain and with lovely views over the Alpujarras towards the Mediterranean Sea.

The campsite is up a windy drive right on the road, easy to find and with really good access. As a base for exploring the Alpujarras it´s in a great location.

Camping Balcon de Pitres Swimming Pool


It has a decent size pool, restaurant and bar with a pool table and T.V. The shower block is a little dated but perfectly adequate with loads of hot water.

We stayed at the beginning of July 2011. Would we go again? Definately.

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.
