“Practically perfect in every way!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2014

This is a fantastic camp site, don't be put off when you arrive if like us, you can't find anyone in the reception, just stroll up to the bar area and you will find Ivan, who is one of the most friendly site managers I have ever met - he's desperate to learn English, and takes every opportunity to learn from the guests!
The site itself is situated in the sierras, with great walks and bicycle rides very close by. The facilities are scrupulously clean, and the showers amongst the biggest we've come across.
The pitches are very large and have a good choice of shade/ no shade.
Just a short walk from the campsite is a superb restaurant - try the lamb - which is not only delicious but reasonably priced and served by really friendly staff/ owners.
The only downside is that it is quite far out if you have to shop for food (there is a small Dias in Maria) but we'd recommend you stock up before you arrive.
Best site so far on our adventure.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

We spent three months travelling / camping Spain/France as a family of four (2x adults, 2x children aged 2 & 3) in 2012. We planned on using Sierra Maria as a stop-off campsite before Sierra Nevada, but ended up spending 2x weeks there. It was our favourite campsite during our travels.

We had never heard of this remote part of Andalusia, but we fell in love with Sierra Maria and definitely want to visit again.

Although the campsite was quiet and secluded, there was a lovely, friendly vibe. The site is maintained to the highest standard. The pool is cleaned daily. We were made to feel so welcome, and were invited to spend time with the Spanish families.

Overlooked by mountains, the scenery is beautiful. There are no major supermarkets, but there is a small, well-stocked shop in Maria.

If you are looking for peace and relaxation and an opportunity to experience rural Spain, you will love Sierra Maria. It is also great for children, as they have space and freedom to enjoy.
