Only stayed one night due to dirty muddy pitches. Unable to sit out. Very squashed in. electricity points hard to reach unless you are young or a mountain goat. Again found that the use of ground sheets by previous campers had a devastation effect on pitches; they should ban the use of them.
Pitches well used and abused by the use of ground sheets. Pitches terraced and tight in places. Electricity points difficult to reach unless you were a mountain goat. Well used by the time mid September, when we arrived. Not able to sit out as pitches were dirty and muddy. Only stayed one night.
We stayed here in our 7.25 m motorhome which was comfortably accommodated. Terraced sites – many with views. Superb washing/toilet/shower facilities. Very good restaurant and bar superb swimming pool (one of the best we have encountered although there is a requirement for head caps to be worn but which are available at the shop for one euro) 15 minute walk into lovely ancient town of Potes with many bars, restaurants and a couple of good supermarkets. This is a site which is convenient for access to the cable car at Fuente De which we visited in our motorhome and parked in the official and extremely large carpark which had many spaces for motorhomes although we advise getting there early as the attraction is so popular that cars fill those spaces. It is very likely that there is a bus service from The bus depot in Potes to the cable car.
Approx 2km outside Potes. Beautiful location. Terraced site with nice sized pitches and lovely views of the mountains and valley. Lots of walking / cycling possibilities in the area, although some of the walks involve a lot of hills (to be expected!). Potes is a lovely town with lots of shops offering artisan and local produce. The site has a lovely restaurant that serves really simple but tasty local dishes. We were really impressed with the quality and cost. All of the facilities were spotlessly clean. Highly recommended.
Stayed three nights in June. Amazing location, great staff, variety of sites but the wifi is definitely better closer to the reception. Wifi speed is good but they need more antennas around the campground. The site sizes are average to slightly above average for a campsite in Spain. The sites are level. As someone else said the road in from the coast is quite exciting with a wide vehicle - lots of narrow spots and white van men driving too fast. Showers etc were good. Would stay again.
Wow what an amazing site, we have travelled a lot and this is one of only a handful of sites that gets a 10/10. The location is fabulous, short walk into Potes which is lovely and a 20 minute drive to the Fuente De cable car which is a must, we took it up and then walked 3.5 hours down, absolutely stunning. Facilities spotless and the whole place is well maintained. It has been very hot so the pool has been great, very clean and shade under the vines. There is a small supermarket for bread in the morning and also a bar/restaurant which we didn’t use. Nice terraced pitches all with washing lines, some with views of the Picos. Can’t fault the place, well worth the low season rate. Lots more to explore nearby, will definitely be back.
Beautiful place placed at Picos de Europa. Just 20 min from Fuente Dé.
Camping has all facilities and cleanfull.
Good staff and friendly people.
The only thing missing is a beach. The rest is just perfect. Great view to Picos. You can tell how much dedication there is and attension to detail. Very friendly people and quit low prices for pitch, shop and Restaurant. Remarkable clean and practical facilities. Not even smelly toilets but wood essence from the nice traditional building. Great pool for little kids (0.5m). Nice walk to Potes or mountains apart from traffic.
A sink and toilet for kids would be great. A minus for having unsecured falling hazards for smaller kids in frequent places.
But finally: The best site we stayed this year out of of well over 20.
One review said this was the best camp-site in Spain. I haven’t been to them all, but this is the best camp-site I have ever use in 55 years of camping. We stayed back on June and the scenery, service and facilities were all top class.
We think this is a fantastic campsite. Very clean and lovely hot showers. The site is well situated - a nice walk into Potes and the Picos mountains are brilliant. Extremely helpful owners and nice restaurant where we ate twice. We definitely hope to return.
