This site really failed to live up to its 8 star rating. Granted we arrived in September and it was wet. We each terrace to find a drier pitch but as soon as it rained it turned into a big. You would have thought bring on the top terrace it might have drained better but not so and given this must be commonplace you would have thought the owners might have done something about the drainage. The electric posts were all domestic plugs with flip covers, several of which were broken, used externally. Given how wet it was I was a little worried about touching it. The toilet facilities are haphazard e.g. One gents block has showers sinks and urinals and the other showers sinks and WC's. granted it may be better in the height of summer but we won't be going back to find out.
Several other reviewers mention the short walk to Potes from the site. Potes is 65km from Avin so they are confused.
The site is nice, pitches good, toilets are showers clean and the staff very helpful.
The wifi is so slow that it is useless - lots of signal strength around the site but it feels like a 1990s dial-up speed. The site is quite close to the road but the road is not busy at night. There are deer ticks here - we had a site under the trees and we found multiple ticks on our gear including one buried in my leg - required 10 days of doxycycline to prevent Lyme disease. My lasting memory is of the owners working hard to build cabins and upgrade the campsite. When they decide to have a heavy equipment day it is very noisy. We stayed for two nights when they were using a front-end loader to load gravel into a dumper at one end of the campground and then driving the dumper through the camp to dump it out at the other end. They finished at 10pm. Would not rush back.
Lovely campsite, with fabulous views of the Picos. Several good walks from the site, and close enough to walk into Potes for shopping, bars and restaurants. Facilities very good, and the bar/ restaurant on site also good. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Close to Fuente De for cable car - during busy season try and get the early to avoid queues, the cable car doesn\'t take dogs.
We stayed in August and this site was very busy however we found it very pleasant. We have a 8m caravan and found room for our awning too. Not much space for our car so was able to park it elsewhere.
There is a lovely swimming pool, trampolines for kids and a very nice restaurant serving a very cheap buffet or tapas. Also the wine is very cheap per bottle. The shop sells all the basics plus bread and croissants. Clean toilets as usual In Spain. The people who run the site are lovely, the young man on reception seems to be there 18 hours a day and will help with anything, he even rang a restaurant and booked it for our anniversary. Casa Marcial, 12 course tasting menu, 2 michelin stars, amazing meal. We got a taxi to the site.
You can walk to restaurant and bars and some caves but everything else is a drive away. No cycling or walking from the site but amazing walks in the Picos, a funicular up or down at Bulnes and a coach journey up to some amazing lakes at Casalunga. The canoeing at Arriondes is great, like a canoe motorway but fun all the same. You have to arrive at 11am and you can canoe for 7/12 or 15 km and be picked up from the other end.
Would highly recommend this site, but they do like you to book it. I can imagine that they would always for you in though. They had some lovely looking wooden huts for rent too.
We will definitely return here. Hard working staff.
Excellent, simple and family friendly place with good restaurant and easy walk into Potes. I left my bag in the restaurant when we left and they had put it by for me. 3 times along the pass to Leon peaking at 4600ft is not to be sniffed at.
