Although a narrow gate on entering this great little site offers a friendly reception with some English spoken. Some long pitches allow you to stay coupled which is great for towing a car trailer or even a caravan. Small restaurant offers good quality food and a friendly face. Reception staff allowed us to stay past the normal check out time as our ferry was much later in the evening. In all worth the drive out to this site if your intention is to drive on through Spain the following day or waiting for the ferries to travel home.

Nice site with friendly helpful staff. Toilet block a bit old fashioned but has a bio award & is spotlessly clean. Some pitches large enough to leave the car & caravan hooked up. ideal for ferry ports but let site know in advance in case ferry delayedl

Surprisingly open late October. Very quiet with all seasonal caravans stored off pitch. A good walk to the coast but worth the effort on a fine day. Booked for one night but stayed three. Good stop-off for Santander ferry.

Nice little site set in woodland very close to pleasant villages. Too far to walk to coast, need car or scooter. Toilet block old fashioned but very clean with ample very hot water. Very tranquil in September but pool closed as per normal. Good for couple of days to relax or go off visiting the area and beaches.

Mooie rustige camping, de omgeving is heel mooi. Sommige plaatsen zijn minder rustig, veel vaste staanplaatsen. Sanitair is verouderd maar wel heel netjes.

Camping bien situé, personnel accueillant et parlant le français.
A quelques kms de la plage et bien centré pour visiter le Cantabrie.
