Even though our rv was to big to go up the hill on to the campsite the owner lets us stay for free in a glade at the bottom of the cliff. This is a beautiful site with an amazing view of the bay of Biscay. The only fault was the astronomical prices in the resturante but as we stayed for free I was happy to eat in the resturante

We had a fantastic week stay here at the start of summer break. The real draw of the site is the spectacular view and the beach.

The campsite is an hour from Santander and the ferry. Be sure to stop before the little bridge before you go into reception, ready yourself for a steep drive. They direct you to a pitch and we saw caravans being towed in as there is a steep drive up into the site. From there the campsite slopes steeply into the cove and a sandy beach. There are pitches for vans and caravans by the road, then others are cut into the slope for tents which campers walk into. All have great views over the sea. The beach is sandy and has a lifeguard cover and can have some big surf waves. The beach is not busy and is only shrunken by the high tide.

The toilet block and wash areas are acceptable, although a little dated. There is a bar which we visited for drinks, free WiFi and the view, we cannot comment on the food. There was a supermarket about 30 minutes back down the motorway towards Santander, the campsite shop had basic supplies. The campsite is good due to the view so the area of the campsite in the valley does not have that attraction. Try and avoid. You can cycle along the coast path or drive to the Picos if you want to leave the site.

Really good site for a beach holiday.

We chose to stay here as we wanted to visit some of the coastal towns nearby. It also seemed to be in a picturesque location.

Location

The site is indeed in a stunning location high on the cliffs. From our pitch we could see the ocean and the Picos. The motorway is still under construction and so the access directions are likely to change. Basically come off the A8/N634 and follow signs for Playa La Vidiago.

The access road is steep and narrow so take care. Stop at the bottom of the hill before the small bridge. Someone from reception will come to you or you need to go to the reception building. You will be asked to unhitch your caravan and a man in a Range Rover will arrive and tow you to your pitch. Believe me you’ll be glad someone else is towing your van when you see the incline from reception.

When leaving with your van ask for a tow. You will be towed right up to the motorway junction.

Reception

Business like. Little English spoken.

Pitches

The pitches vary hugely in size and can only accommodate a caravan and awning. We could only see a few pitches capable of accommodating a van up to 7. 5m. There is plenty of room to park a car but not on the pitch. If you are staying more than 3 nights the likelihood is that you will get a pitch with a view. Shorter stays usually get a lower pitch and restricted view.

There are a lot of tent pitches and a few Spanish caravans that are there for the summer.

Sanitary Facilities

The best description I can think of is dated and rustic. In order to get hot water in the shower you need to keep pressing and electric switch. (How they got this past Spanish building controls is anyone’s guess). There is no hot water to the washbasins. The showers have plastic curtains instead of doors and you have to hang your clothes on pegs which are opposite the shower. I have seen worse but I have also seen an awful lot better.

Eating

The restaurant is right on top of the cliff with good views out to sea. It is a great location sadly the views are not matched by the food or service. I had pork smothered in a blue cheese sauce with chips. It was not one of the best meals I have had. It is also quite expensive when compared to other restaurants we have visited in Northern Spain. The staff would sooner be chatting with each other than serving customers. We felt as if we were an inconvenience which they had to put up with.

Other Stuff

We didn't see any facilities for children although you can walk down to the beach from the site. Most English outfits seemed to stay for a few nights although a couple next to us had been there for a fortnight and had explored the whole area including Potes, Santander and the other coastal towns.

Santilla de Mar, Llanes and Ribadesalla are well worth a visit.

Summary

The views are terrific but the facilities and attitude of staff need much improvement. Having said that it is a good location for seeing other parts of the Asturias.

Do not worry about letting someone else tow your caravan. He is much less likely to put a dent in it than you, even if you are an experienced driver.
