Just over an hour from Madrid, in the Sierra de Guadarrama National Park, between Buitrago and Rascafría, Monte Holiday has become in recent years one of the
outdoor entertainment centers
most desired for those who escape with the family near the capital. What began in 1982 as a campsite for use with all kinds of services, today is presented as something more than a space to stay in nature.

"For about 15 years we have been adding activities and betting on adventurous families with children up to 12 years old. Absolutely everything here is adapted for our smallest clients: the animation, the games, the height of the zip line, the restaurant menus ... ", says Antonio Gonzalo Pérez, CEO and manager of this luxury campsite with
