Camping Granja Ecológica Veilchental

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionNice campsite in the central Sierras of Córdoba.

    Surrounded by high biodiversity forest, a small stream that crosses the place, next to open spaces makes the camping Granja Ecológica Veilchental the ideal place to relax in contact with the typical nature of the Sierras Cordobesas.

    We usually have lunch or dinner at least once with each group of volunteers. However we can not offer you the daily food, of which they must take care of themselves. Unless they are of our production, in which case we gladly share. It is a question of schedules and eating habits typical of each traveler among other reasons.

    To make purchases you can use public transport (Frequency every 2 hours from Monday to Monday) to visit the nearest town of Villa General Begrano and buy their groceries in the supermarket. Or, they can choose not to work and simply enjoy the establishment by paying the daily rate that is charged to a current tourist.

    Other useful information:
    1. We are 7km from Villa General Belgrano (80km from Córdoba
    Capital) and you arrive at our site (Veilchental) with the company
    Pajaro Blanco to La Cumbrecita, from the
    Buses from Villa General Belgrano. It takes about 15 minutes. (
    Frequency every 2 hours).
    2. We are within the range of cellular telephony and our
    Telephone number is 03546 15513449.
    3. We speak Spanish, German and English.


    Finally we ask:

    Leave all facilities in a clean state during use and when leaving the accommodation.
    Remember that almost all the spaces are shared.

    Take care of the tools of work as if they were their own. Not leaving them anywhere. Do not force them until they break.
