 What a revelation this area was!

The campsite is large and very well equipped. A couple of kms out of town.

Large grassy pitches, though open sides, so no privacy. Mostly well shaded. Very good facilities:palatial! The 'Entrance Hall' would fit many campsites' full ablutions in it.

Lots of modern facilities. Excellent swimming pool area with huge rock face. Good bar/restaurant (though we did most of this in town), good sports facilities (tennis, basketball, football etc).

The campsite is in the valley, north of Cuenca. And there is an asphalt cycle path along the valley in both directions.

Altogether a first class site. We were there in early September, so not at all crowded. Lots of space. I have no idea how full it may be in July.

The area is extraordinary, mainly due to the sculpted/weathered limestone. Cuenca old city being perched on a rocky pile high above the river that splits and surges round on both sides of it.

The climb up on foot is good exercise and offers great walks via paths and winding alleys. You can, of course, drive, if you feel less inclined to walk (no pun intended!).

The old town is interesting, and an easy walk around. The cathedral often houses exhibitions. When we were there the famous touring exhibition of Ai Wei Wei's extraordinary work following his 81 days of 24/7 supervised imprisonment (The Poetry of Freedom) was installed. But the cathedral itself holds much interest and is worth a wander. The interior belies the simplicity of the exterior.

The town has a famous Museum of Abstract Art (Museo de Arte Abstracto Espanol) when we visited: an interactive Sound and Art Exhibition (1961-2016). Housed in one of the spectacularly 'hanging houses', right on the cliff edge.

An absolute must of a visit is the Ciudad Encantada. The Enchanted City. And area of rock formations carved out by eons of water scouring. Into a phenominal array of shapes and enormous 'sculptures'. Allow at least half a day to wander round the park. Take a picnic lunch.

The whole Cuenca experience was utterly enchanting. We never knew it existed, having never driven through this part of Spain. It's worth more than a detour!

 Lovely, big, child-friendly, peaceful campsite.

We had previously stayed here for a weekend in 2007, when we were living in Madrid. We remembered it as a lovely campsite and chose to return there with our two children.

The campsite facilities have been updated since our first visit. There is one huge and very new wash block quite near the entrance, with other blocks (less new, but nice and clean) deeper into the campsite.

The shop is quite basic, but has the essentials. There is a huge Al Campo supermarket on the outskirts of Cuenca. Cuenca also has a branch of Decathlon (very handy!). Having said that, Decathlon was out of CP250 gas canisters when we there but we found them in a discount everything shop over the road from Al Campo in the end.

Pitches are a good size and there are quite a few trees so take your hammock. We were able to pitch our tent with empty pitches on either side, so the kids had plenty of space to play right next to us.

There isn't much of a playground, but with the empty pitches, pine forest and pool, we didn't feel we needed it.

The pool is nice and big with a novelty cave/waterfall in the shape of one of the rock formations from the Ciudad Encantada. The pool was a BIG hit with the children.

Good bar/restaurant on site. Generous portions.

The site was quiet in the evenings (no late-night carousing) and we were the only Brits there. It is obviously popular with Spanish people who go there for much of the long summer holidays.

We stayed three nights in August and there were lots of empty pitches, so there is no need to book. One thing we had not realised when we were last there is that there is a pine wood at the far end of the campsite. It's relatively cool and shaded and means you can have a bit of an explore without leaving the campsite.

There was an inaugural giant paella competition when we were there and we were essentially fed for free because everyone was invited to taste as many entries as they wanted.

Cuenca and the Ciudad Encantada are both a must. A highlight for us was also the Parque El Hosquillo. I think it was about an hour's drive away (and you need a car to drive down into the reserve) - no mobile reception, no shop, but a nature reserve where they have wolves, deer and BEARS living naturally in the wild. The reserve is in a kind of basin that is naturally enclosed on most sides by sheer cliffs. Spaces for visits are limited. Some people were turned away for not having booked on the day we visited. You drive from the entry gates down quite a long and winding road to the information centre and museum. You then leave your car for a walking tour and later return to the car to drive to the bear viewing platform. I managed to buy our tickets online via my mobile phone from Spain. We were accompanied on our tour by two guides - a lovely lady who was very knowledgeable, and a tame deer called Antonia. My favourite bit was the bears, but Antonia totally stole the show for the children! I speak Spanish, but I don't think there was any information in English when we there (I had to repeat the key info back to my kids in English, but the reserve guide was very patient with this and tried to include our children in everything). You are not allowed to take food out of your car, so bear this in mind when planning what time to visit and when to eat/snack. At 10 euros for an adult and 5 euros for children aged 5-12 it is very good value (especially if you speak Spanish).

You can walk out of the campsite and along the river and there are sign-posted footpaths, but we didn't have time for any walks as we weren't there for long enough.

We hope to return to Cuenca at some point as there are many other activities available, e. G. Kayaking, which we didn't have time for.
