Arriving by the small, narrow and bumpy road, it was not easy to reach the campsite. For several kilometers we sink into the forest with sometimes big holes, big drops and big branches. With our old motorhome which is not suitable for this type of road, we were a little afraid of not getting there. But in the end, everything went well.
And fortunately because the place is really beautiful! Surrounded by a forest and a river, this campsite is a paradise for nature lovers. There is an incredible view of the Picos de Europa and it is a very good start for hikes.
On site, the spaces are mostly planted with trees to create shade. Moreover, as the campsite is housed in the hollow of a valley, the sun disappears early to give way to a gentle coolness. It is ideal during the hot summer days.
On site there is an all day restaurant and bar where they brew their own beer. They offer dishes at really good prices! Besides, there is WI-FI which helped us out a lot in the evening.
We also really liked the clean and spacious sanitary facilities with electrical outlets. There are three washing machines on site which cost only €2 and a place to empty the campervan chemical toilets.
We also visited their shop and left with a few odds and ends. This store also offers fresh bread and other products for quick shopping when needed.
We have two cats and the team positioned us on ideal terrain away from families with dogs and traffic. It was really perfect to let them go out in complete serenity.
Some of the things we also found great, but couldn't test:
- entertainment (while we were there there was yoga in the morning and nature excursions),
- biking
- a playground for children, but also table football and a ping-pong table
For our part, we hiked the Vega de Liordes for a day. It was magical ! Thanks to the team for recommending it!

How was the contact with the host?
The hosts are very friendly. As soon as we arrived, they offered us several possible places to land. This allowed us a certain freedom that we do not find everywhere.
They often helped us. Especially in the choice of hiking, but also for more personal questions.
The team speaks several languages there is always someone at the reception to help.

Tips for new guests?
Pay attention to the size of your converted vehicle. The road to come is not easy and you can quickly get stuck. We weren't the only ones to have a motorhome, so the ease of getting there certainly depends on the motorization of the vehicle. Ours is a gasoline from 1988. Which also explains our difficulty.
There is no common space for cooking except for washing dishes. It is therefore necessary to provide a stove.

And if you want to stay for several days and you use the water from your motorhome, be careful when emptying it! It is not possible to do this on site.

Otherwise, bring good walking shoes to take full advantage of this breathtaking natural space!

What a place and an amazing team. If you like nature this is the place to be. Very kind people work here and there is just everything you need with good food and tremendous vibes.

How was the contact with the host?
Carlos is a very kind and helpful host. He will make sure that you feel happy and that you can enjoy the site. Also can he give some super usefull tips about trails and activities. Muchos Gracias Carlos!

Tips for new guests?
This is really in nature and the bigger village are quit far away. You can eat in the restaurant on the site which serves great food. But make sure to stay some days to really enjoy the place. Tip, take your time to enjoy!

Rules

Campsites are ideal places to stay with pets, but it is important to know the rules of coexistence and to respect them. Some of the most basic ones are:

always keep your pet on a leash and, if necessary, he should wear a muzzle. Bear in mind that some people are afraid of animals. Make sure that they do their excrements outside the campsite, and always pick the5trm up.
brush them outside the campsite and collect the hairs in a bag. Hair flies easily.
keep them only in the permitted areas.
If your dog does not feel safe when alone, try not to leave HIM alone. Most of them will probably engage in undesirable behaviour such as barking, scratching or breaking something nearby.

Cancellation Policy

Guests who cancel at least 30 days before check-in date will receive a refund of the amount paid by them (excl. Campspace fees). If they cancel between 14 and 30 days before check-in, they will receive a 50% refund. Otherwise they will not be refunded.
