A perfectly located site for visiting Salamanca. The Bus stop is a 15 minute stroll away and €1.40 per person each way. Access to the site is very good even with a 13.5 metre long outfit. The pitches are dry and dusty but that is the aftereffect of the heat wave Spain has been experiencing. A motorhome / caravan dealers is situated opposite the entrance to the site and they speak very good English. Vehicle washing hose is also located at the motorhome washing out area. A Mercadonna is about a 6 minute drive and a fuel station with jet wash and vacuum cleaners etc is a couple of hundred metres away. Salamanca is a must see during the day and also at night when all the lights come on and illuminate the incredible architecture. In October, in Salamanca we felt like we could have been the only people there as some of the streets were deserted. We would definitely return for a stop over and a relaxing few days. We towed the caravan right through Salamanca town on a Sunday and found the roads and access excellent, wide and quiet. Our truck sat nav wanted to take us through the small town opposite the campsite but on no account try this as the roads are quite narrow. The roads we drove through Salamanca on were mostly dual carriageway.

Serious problem with decrepit electrics. Live and neutral both live. Tested with pro socket tester. There is a fault. Owner did not understand which was worrying. Said it was only the English who had problems. Took photos to show burn out on their mains hook up.
If this is regularly inspected then I have to ask what the inspector is doing.

Potentially a good campsite but seriously let down by a few bad points. First to the good; the reception staff were excellent - friendly, (mostly) knowledgable and excellent English. Amenities are very good - well situated, good and modern toilet/wash/kitchen facilities, excellent shop with good fresh bread/pastries/deli/essentials and good restaurant with decent dishes. It\'s also close to the beautiful city of Salamanca and makes an excellent base to explore this city. But now to the bad; pitches are smallish - we were in a large 3 person tent and just fitted. Others, especially in campers, had some trouble in some pitches, but were alright in others. But if you\'re in a tent, forget plastic pegs - large steel is the only option and sometimes even that is not possible, as the ground was very hard and quite stony. The washing facilities are modern but each toilet cubicle shares a communal toilet roll dispenser, which runs out quickly and the showers have a communal bench to leave dry clothing, outside from the cubicles, which is very inconvenient. The site is very close to Salamanca but, despite Reception reassuring us it was a 6km walk, we tried it and found it was actually just over What really spoilt our stay at the campsite is the noise level - despite what we were told was a strict midnight to 8am silence rule so as not to disturb neighbours, the site\'s own facilities go on beyond this time and also we were disturbed by music playing loudly until 2am by some campers, and cars were driving around the site from 6.30am. It was very hard to get sleep. Also, most restaurant staff were excellent but one decided to mock us for trying to speak Spanish with him - this was the first time we have experienced this attitude in over 20 years of visiting Spain and despite us being quite fluent in Spanish. In summary - this could be a good stopping point with lots of potential but, especially if you have young children needing to sleep, U cannot recommend this site until changes are made.

Excellent site with good sized pitches and 70Mb Internet download and signal all over the site. We felt very at home and reluctant to leave. Well run and secure.

We always stay here when crossing Spain towards north or France. It\'s a very small but quiet and nice camping with fantastic staff (super Matias!)! This year they renewd the toillets so it was great.

New toilets and showers have been built and were excellent, very clean and modern. The access to Salamanca is very easy by bicycle or walk, no major roads to negotiate, approx 5km. This campsite is ideal to explore the city of Salamanca. The only downside was that the pitches were quite dusty with very little grass.

Friendly informative staff .clean site which has just undergone a much needed and successful re- vamp of the toilet facilities. Not only does this site give easy access site to Salamanca but it has a camper/ caravan service centre opposite the entrance

Nice site, with large pitches. Toilets being refurbished (ladies done, gents due to be completed the day we left). Staff very friendly and helpful. Lovely bike ride (or walk) to the city mostly alongside the river.

Pleasant and helpful reception from the man who runs the site. Spacious pitches with a choice of sun, partial or total shade. Next to river which provides a pleasant walk or cycle ride. Bus stop is 10mins walk for bus into the city. We didn\'t eat in the restaurant but it gets very full at weekends, mainly locals.
As reported by others the toilet block is disappointing. Toilets are very low and have no seats. No hooks in showers. Having said that the toilets were always clean.
Very convenient for visiting this lovely city.
