Visit Spain’s capital city in a Madrid motorhome rental
Known for its extravagant and expansive boulevards, intricately detailed parks, and vast collections of European art, Madrid is certainly one of Europe’s must-see cultural and artistic hubs. But there’s more to this city than just it’s beautiful public spaces and rich artistic culture. It is also home to some of Spain’s most interesting museums, important historical buildings, and other points of interest reflecting the importance of the renaissance period. With a campervan from GoSee handy, you can explore all that Madrid has to offer from the comfort of your campervan.
Where to stay with your campervan hire
Madrid offers plenty of great campgrounds for all budgets and types of travellers. Whether you are a solo, duo, or group, you’ll find something to suit you in the list below:
The idyllic surroundings and geographical location of this park make it the perfect base for a Madrid holiday. It is also the only campground located within the city limits.
Bungalows Camping Alpha Madrid
A great budget option that sits just outside of the main city and close to the airport. It packs superb value with a small pool and terrace on offer, and a shop where you can get daily essentials and other things you’ll want for your travels.

A large holiday site, this park is perfect for solo travellers looking to meet others. It has a supermarket for all your daily shopping needs, and a swimming pool that is open all summer. It also features many great sports facilities.

Camping tips for your Spanish adventure
Make the most of your motor home rental and your trip to Madrid with these tips and tricks:
Check if your campsite has a curfew so that you aren’t locked out or can’t set up after hours. Not much you can do after the clock stroke the exact time.
Make sure you know when public transport ends for the night.
Keep a close eye on your pockets, and keep valuables safe—unlike Alicante, Madrid is a bustling city.
Brush up on your Spanish basics, or make sure you can translate with your phone online if you can—some restaurants only offer menus in Spanish. The Spanish name of the ciudad (city) or a listed attraction Patrimonio de la Humanidad (World Heritage Site) can help you get far.
Get used to napping in the afternoon, or adventuring through later hours, because thanks to the “siesta”, meal times are generally: breakfast at 9am, lunch at 2pm and dinner at 9pm.
Many shops stay open until much later than in other countries because of their midday napping hours.
