Where the Wild Oranges roam.
We stay just outside Valencia city at Camping Coll Vert. The campsite is well connected to Valencia city, and where you can hop on the public bus for just €1.50 (one way) to get into Valencia to enjoy Las Fallas!
The campsite is not wild in the slightest, with full-time security, a bar, restaurant and shop onsite, a great swimming pool, clean amenities and great authentic Spanish atmosphere.
And there is so much more to the region outside of the festivities! Valencia has a wonderful old walled city, great modern architecture, clubs, restaurants, beaches and bars. It’s just wonderful! Come and see it! You’re going to love it! We adore it!
