Last year (2019) we held a contest in which we rewarded the person who proposed the best route to discover Andalusia with a free week in one of our campsites to do it. The winner was Monique Sterrenburg from the United Kingdom, and this is her experience narrated by her.

We arrived at sunny airport of Málaga and were picked up by Gonzalo. At Flamenco Campers our lovely camper van Lucia was ready for our trip through Andalusia.

The winning route I designed is a lot in one week, I would advise at least 2 weeks to do this round trip to be able to get some moments of rest in between, but mostly to enjoy the beautiful areas more. For us it was to discover the nice spots and where to come back to in the future.

Our first stop was La Alhambra, in Granada. We had tickets for the Palacios Nazaríes (Nasrid Palaces) which you have to order online in advance (tickets are for an hours slot and are sold out quickly, so buy them when you know you are going!) A beautiful place with lots of history and great photo opportunities.

We did some grocery shopping on the way to our campsite. We arrived late at the campsite and nobody was at the reception anymore. We found a spot to park Lucia and had a tapas meal in our camper.

Costs day activities: € 29,70 (La Alhambra tickets, 2 persons including reservation)

Costs campsite: € 16 (campervan, 2 persons, no electric)
