Do you like the combination of sea and mountains? If so, Camping Las Hortensias is the place for you. You are staying here on the green coast of Spain, the Costa Verde. The renowned Parque Nacional Picos de Europa is situated in the area. Moreover, the campsite has direct access to a fine sandy beach.

Attractive hydrangeas

You will be staying among an abundance of hydrangeas on the grounds. The pitches are located in long rows on a lawn along paved roads. Some have a sea view and some are partly shaded. Rows of trees, hedges and a few buildings provide shelter against the wind. The camping is surrounded by tree-covered hills. The sanitary facilities on the campsite are new and are cleaned daily.

Beautiful sandy beach

It takes less than a minute to walk to the beautiful and sheltered sandy beach, bordering the campsite. For children (possibly for adults, too) this is one big play paradise. The considerable tidal difference will allow you to amble between the rocks, where there are lovely little water pools for children. There is also a great eating establishment at the beach. From here you have a superb sea view. Over weekends, many Spanish day visitors flock to the bay, but during the week the hotel and camping guests have the place virtually to themselves.

Fun and games

Apart from the beach, children will enjoy the playground and soccer field.

Great daily menus

The camping shop has a generous range. Feel like a luxury meal out? The adjacent hotel offers a good daily menu at discounted prices to camping guests.

Liked - The campsite was very nice, the showers and toilets were excellent, and immaculately clean. Probably some of the best facilities I have seen for a long time. Shame that our dogs weren’t allowed on the beach, which is why we decided to move on to another location.
Disliked - I found the reception staff quite unfriendly, no smile to customers when they enter reception, very sullen looks and on one occasion yawning when dealing with a customer, not just once, but continually. Meanwhile the reception/ shop staff at the campsite further down the road we’re lovely. Very friendly and chatty.

Liked - This is a lovely site in an amazing location. The shower / toilet block was one of the best we've ever seen. Thanks so much to the wonderful ladies who kept them sparkling clean. Kid's play area was simple but effective A really great base to explore the beautiful Costa Verde.
Disliked - Not a dislike, but worth being aware the emplacements are pretty compact. Our neighbours were very friendly so no problem there!
