Europe’s best mountainside campsites

KENT, England — Jonathan Knight, editor of the ‘Cool Camping’ guide book, chooses his favorite campsites in Europe with mountain views, according to The Telegraph.

Yurt Holiday Portugal, Portugal

Conceived by a pair of London ex-pats, this isolated glampsite in the Serra da Estrela, the highest mountain range in Portugal, is a luxury eco-conscious escape. A zig-zag of steps tumble down the hillside to two yurts and a bell tent, in the flatter valley bottom.

La Fresneda, Spain

The lesser-known area of Muntanyes de Benifassà is a corrugated range of tiered olive and almond tree clad slopes that flatten out into a parched landscape where Camping La Fresneda resides. As one of Spain’s rare sites without a swimming pool and just 25 camping pitches, La Fresneda enjoys a quiet and secluded atmosphere, The Telegraph described.
