Nice roomy pitches and free Wifi in the cafe, with no requirement to buy food or drink to use Wifi.

Facilities block was reasonably clean, showers quite difficult to use as you literally have to keep pressing quite hard on the knob to mKe the shower work. Also showers very much warm rather than hot and temperature not adjustable.

Villa Franca de Cordoba is a bit down in it's luck to say the least, struggled even to buy bread locally! The bread available on site was a bit like cotton wool. It was however, very convenient for seeing the city of Cordoba, which is very well worth a visit.

As a convenient place to stay for a couple of nights, would recommend it.

This is a fairly new, well-laid out site with attractive buildings and flower-beds. There are some bungalows and statics, and touring pitches are spacious and hedge-marked, with some trees for shade. As we were there out of season the shop, restaurant and swimming pool were closed but we could sit in the TV room to use the free wifi. I imagine that it would be a very pleasant place to stay in summer.

There are however a few minus points. The showerblock is very clean but there are no toilet seats, 'for reasons of hygiene'. The showers are rather awkward to use - push button, with no temperature control, and they need to be pressed very hard to work. The water stops as soon as you take your hand off the button. The wash-basins are also push-button. The washing-up and laundry sinks, which are outside but covered, have cold water only. There is a washing machine but it's service wash only. Another problem (which is unlikely to happen in summer) is that the ground is clay and gets very waterlogged in wet weather. It became a quagmire while we were there!

The local town, Villafranca, has a small supermarket. It's a 15-minute drive to Cordoba which is a wonderful city with both Roman and Moorish remains. To my mind the Mezquita is even more amazing than the Alhambra. The Juderia, the old Jewish area of narrow streets, is full of interesting shops, and the Roman bridge over the Guadalquivir river is very impressive. I'd love to return to Cordoba but I think I would choose another campsite.
