Stayed here just 2 nights and it is a very nice site, large pitches and clean amenities. The toilet blocks are modern, clean and have ample space within. Located about a 10 minute walk from the lovely town of Tordesillas where there are some nice bars and restaurants.

There is a bar on site reasonably priced and another on the 'beach' area of the river which runs beside the campsite. The site shop is very basic but probably stocked enough of those things you tend to run out of. On site staff were extremely helpful.

This was a well laid out campsite with good facilities. Plenty of space on our visit in September, even though the Bull Running was due. We left the day before the bull run, (I think that could be difficult as the run looked to be going past the site.

Short, (if uphill!), walk into very interesting old town.

Toilets and showers were clean and tidy.

Not able to find fault with the site or staff, will be back in 2013.

The facilities have been upgraded and are now very good but not heated when we were there although it was cold that April. The pitches are well-spaced with electric hook up available. Reception has many leaflets about the area and staff speak excellent English and many other languages.

Tordesillas is very interesting historically and has good value restaurants for a traditional menu del dia, just across the bridge. The site itself also has a restaurant but not all facilities were open in April. A great place to stop when travelling through Spain. Reasonable prices and cheap if you have Camping Cheques.

This is a pleasant site beside the River Duero (which becomes the Douro in Portugal.) It has recently been taken over by the Dutch chain, Kawan, and major refurbishment of the shower block is planned, though the existing one was perfectly ok, if a little tired. It's quite a large site, with pitches of varying sizes, shaded by white poplars. Unfortunately in May they shed lots of white, fluffy seeds, so it looked as if there'd been an explosion in a pillow factory! This is only a problem if, like me, you suffer from hay fever. There's a pleasant swimming pool, restaurant and bar, lots of hot water for washing-up and laundry, and washing machines for 3 euros 80. There is wifi all over the site for a small charge.

It's a short walk into the small but very interesting and historical town of Tordesillas. Must-sees are the House of the Treaty where in 1494 Spain and Portugal divided the New World up between them; the Church of San Antolin: and the Convento di Santa Clara, once a Moorish palace, where Juana la Loca (Joan the Mad) spent her last years. Within an easy drive of Tordesillas there are several fascinating places to visit - the ancient cities of Salamanca and Valladolid and some splendid medieval castles at Medina del Campo and Coca.

The surrounding countryside is unspectacular, being the archetypal 'plain in Spain', but the wonderful historic buildings stand out all the more for the lack of surrounding scenery! It's an interesting and very different area from those usually visited by tourists, but typically Spanish. Highly recommended.
