Another inland municipality in the province of Málaga has decided to attract RV tourists by providing facilities for this kind of tourism.
Just over a year ago Canillas de Albaida opened a parking area for RVs and next year it will be the turn of El Borge, which is also in the Axarquía area of the province of Málaga.
El Borges Town hall with its population of around 900 inhabitants will spend 35,000 euros on converting some 1,000 sq/m of open land next to the municipal stadium, making room for around 20 medium-sized RVs.
The Mayor, Raúl Vallejo (PSOE), explained that it will be sited in an area known as La Huertecilla, which is conveniently next to the sports facilities as an added bonus for RV-borne visitors. He also recognises that this kind of tourism is on the rise, which spawned this decision to provide parking for them.
The parking area will have fresh water and facilities to empty waste tanks, as well as hook-up points for electricity. User will have direct access to the sports facilities’ bathrooms & changing rooms
Editorial comment: why is it that a village of 900 inhabitants in Málaga can come up with something like this whilst towns the size of Almuñécar, Motril and Salobreña in Granada only limit themselves to making RV visitors feel unwanted.
