RVs Are Welcome

Another inland municipality in the province of Málaga has decided to attract RV tourists by providing facilities for this kind of tourism.

AXA El Borge RV ParkingJust 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.

    Hola Peeps

    I can remember there was a little RV site just as you turned down towards La Guardia dont think it lasted long though might have been due to the narrow roads or the jealousy of the people who were struggling to sell their coastal apartments anyway its a shame must of bin abit of a money spinner for the family that owned the land did get a bit wet tho

    Viva La Guardia

    There is a new and perfect motorhome site on Calle Alclub in Almunecar.
    It was open in May this year, but it is now closed.
    Does anyone know why?

    There is a perfect pitches opposite the Aquapark which is seldom open and an opportunity to rake in some cash for the town.

    Couldn’t agree more!! We have written several times to the ayuntamiento in Motril to beg to make an area for RV’s. Next to the golf course used to be full of Scandinavian visitors who spent their money in motril but now not one! All is becoming forbidden here.

    Could it be because they already have sufficient commercial sites in the area offering these vehicles somewhere with facilities enabling them to park up overnight?
