You don't stop here to admire the surroundings (an industrial unit, garage and pylon) but for its convenience just off the Autovia A62 and for the warm welcome from the owner. Having greeted you he will disappear into the kitchen to prepare a couple of delicious dishes for the evening meal in the restaurant. It's a short walk into the village, Pedrosillo el Ralo, but we've never found anything open on our overnight stays here. If you come in winter be prepared for low overnight temperatures, there is no shelter from the wind and it was -5C in December. As the owner says 'It is always cold in Castillion'. There is small patch of land at the end of the site for a quick dog walk, we didn't find any footpaths other than round the village.
All we wanted was a hassle-free stop over from Portugal into Northern Spain and it fitted the bill perfectly. I can best describe it as a Travel Lodge for campers!
With just 20 pitches, I did email the day before to check on availability and this was acknowledged promptly.
It is easy to find off the main Autovia, we were soon pitched on a flat, grassy (green too) plot, with water, electric, clean loos and showers close by. Would be handy for sightseeing in Salamanca too, I guess, but we had had our fill of cities.
We used the restaurant in the evening and had a respectable 3-course meal for €10 each, which came to €30 with a full bottle of red, coffee and water for the two of us.
Just to the north of Salamanca, literally a few hundred yards off junction 225 on the A62/E80 motorway. Despite closeness to the road not too much noise as well sheltered by farm buildings.
There are 20 pitches, all hardstanding with ehu. Plenty of fresh water taps and chem disposal on site. There was a good toilet / shower block, well kept. A laundry is also available.
The site has a small bar and restaurant serving set dish of the day meals for €10 per head - we didn't eat there but others that did said good food and good value. Over the road is a garage which sells pretty much everything you could need including fresh daily bread.
You can catch a bus near the site into the city, it leaves each morning and returns at lunchtime and teatime for €1. 50 per head each way.
The site owners were very friendly and helpful and spoke good English.
Site is open all year so its a great stop off for those heading south for the winter sun. Would also be a good base for a few days to explore the area.
