In mountaineering the words, “base camp” evoke a sense of comfort and security, and of course proximity to the mountain to be climbed. In this sense, the La Fresneda campsite would be the base camp for Madrid. It offers all the same advantages as a base camp on the high mountain, namely a place that is secure, comfortable and conveniently located. Let’s have a look:
A secure location: Like all camp sites, La Fresneda provides a welcome refuge for its visitors, who can rest easy in the knowledge that all their belongings, including the most valuable possession for the camper, namely their tent or caravan, will be completely secure while they visit Madrid. We are well aware of the unpleasant experience of returning to find your accommodation has been burgled or damaged.
Comfortable camping: La Fresneda, although a mountain campsite, is located on flat terrain in the meadows (dehesa) of Soto del Real, surrounded by ash trees, unspoilt countryside and mountains. Comfortable for all ages, thanks to its flat location it is ideal for riding bicycles, playing with the kids and easy to simply park the caravan or mobile home with no leveling problems…
Close to Madrid: It can be a surprise to find such a location so close to Madrid. We are just 40km from the city centre with its bustle, heat, noise and smells…yet everything is so different. There is a bus stop (724) right outside the gate, with a regular service that will take you to the Madrid terminal at Plaza de Castilla in just 45 minutes. From there it is just a short hop on the 27 bus down the impressive Paseo de Castellana to reach the cultural centre of town, the Paseo del Prado. This is why we like to believe that the La Fresneda camp site is the authentic Base Camp for Madrid, and that just as the initials EBC mean Everest Base Camp to Himalayan mountaineers, so MBC will come to stand for Madrid Base Camp.
We hope to see you soon.
