Camping Los Madrilles is close to the small seaside resort of Isla Plana. It’s a great campsite mainly populated by long-stay residents who choose to spend the winter in warmer climes. Many people arrive here in October and don’t return to the UK until April. I’m not sure that I’d like that but the lure of the sunshine and warmth is just too much for a lot of people!
The site is well looked after, well maintained and very well manicured………….
Many people return here year after year and have the same pitch which they make their own. They get a local internet connection and have huge great satellite dishes so that they can get BBC and ITV, thereby keeping up with the English T.V. (Strictly come Dancing, for example!!!)
There is a real community feel here with large groups of northern Europeans looking for a warmer winter than they would get at home.
The site is very well laid out with small closes of no more than 6-8 caravans or motorhomes in each area so it never seems very busy or overcrowded.
A lovely sunrise to welcome you in to the day as you set off for your morning ablutions!
The showers and toilets were all spotlessly clean and there were plenty of them so never any problems getting a shower when you wanted one!
The pool area was great and again this was spotless …………..
I liked the indoor pool best as it was easier to measure my daily mile……well almost daily!
One of the main social activities centred around the boules courts where competitions were held 3 times a week, a great place to meet people. If you didn’t like boules there were walking clubs, cycling, choirs, pilates , yoga and much much more!
A short walk from the campsite is the small town of Azohia which has a very nice promenade, ideal for an afternoon stroll followed by a glass of wine or two!
The beach was one that was better to view from a distance rather than struggle over all the stones for a swim, especially when you have a great pool back at the campsite!
Looks like a nice place to spend the winter months. The beach looks a bit tricky for getting into the sea for a swim though. Even I have my limits when it comes to sharp stones.
