A small village nestled on the southern edge of the Parque Natural de las Sierras Tejeda, Almijara y Alhama is leading the way in accepting campervans through its doors.
Canillas de Albaida has allocated a specific area to enable campervans to park overnight without the fear of being fined or moved on.
The space has been made possible by a €48,000 investment by the provincial council to help improve the tourist facilities of the small village.
The parking space, the first to be implemented in the area, will have room for 22 caravans or campervans and covers around 2,500 square metres of land.
The plan is to have the area completely adapted in three months, allowing it to be ready for the upcoming summer season.
The space has been designated as a ’parking area’ however and not a ‘camping area’ so tables, chairs and other camping accessories cannot be placed outside the vehicle, but it will provide a secure and picturesque area to spend the night before a day out in the national park.
