One of the world’s great city break destinations is Barcelona, Spain. However, perhaps the notion of staying in a city hotel and paying a lot for the holiday puts many travelers off the idea.

To take a holiday with a family, it certainly isn’t the cheapest city in the world but staying in a campsite like El Delfin Verde in Torroella de Montgri could give a more affordable and unique way of seeing the delights of Barcelona.

Camping holidays have traditionally been popular with families and one of the reasons why is that they offer great value for money. Compared to staying in a hotel, the travelers could stay for longer than they might be able to afford in a hotel.  It’s possible to make a modest budget go further and travelers will still be able to take extra day trips into the city by hanging around a little bit out of Barcelona in one of the campsites promoted on the likes of the Eurocamp website.

Although many of the city’s visitors failed to visit the area around it, the city of Barcelona is a fantastic place to spend some time of exploration. Opting on spending time in a campsite in the Costa Brava or Costa Dorada let travelers be close to Barcelona but also simply able to enjoy other great places such as Figueres, Tarragona and Port Aventura.

For independent families, camping trips are wonderful instead of being stuck in a hotel. For the duration of the holiday, families can instead make the campsite their home.

For example, the pleasure of home cooking is one thing a lot of people miss compared to expensive prepared meals when they stay in a hotel. Certainly, the area surrounding Barcelona is famous for its tapas restaurants but it is also a great place to buy fresh natural ingredients to cook hearty meals for the family.

Barcelona offers a lot of culture and art for younger ones to explore like some staggering pieces of architecture like La Sagrada Familia. However, these aren’t exactly the activity which appeals to many youngsters.

The good news is that many modern campsites offer the nature’s natural charm that offers the beach, go for a walk in the lovely countryside or do anyone a number of other things which aren’t so easy to do especially when you tied up in a city hotel.

For active families, swimming pools, gyms, cycle hire and football facilities are among the top facilities on the campsite. To keep everyone in the group active and happy for longer by engaging in a family or group activities, this certainly makes it a lot easier.
