Just off the Camino De Santiago route, the campsite is on the edge of the town - with the ruins of the castle above you.

The pitches are on grass, we found the size fine - but the pitches are set in twos so when someone is in the next one you wouldn't have much room for awnings - without though they are fine. All 40 pitches have ehu, wifi is free and good service.

Loos and showers very old, also very clean. Showers a bit of a nightmare - hot water on a push button - cold water on a tap. If you miss hitting the push button you get a freezing jet of water.

There is a washing machine and dyer plus hand washing with cold water. Washing up sinks do have hot water.

Staff speak good English, very helpful there is a small bar and restaurant which is open every day / evening.

For us the main plus point was the Camino De Santiago. We cycled parts of the route, many pilgrims and walkers pass the site each day, many of whom stop overnight.

A very quiet site, perfect for a stopoff for those heading to or from the Med.

This is our third stay and we like it. The family is pretty laid back but they're ok - nice people - they are always there when you need them. Restaurant is cheap and although not Michelin 5 star - you get a reasonably priced meal.

We had issues with the electricity and don't really understand what it was - maybe it was us!

We prefer this site to Fuentes Blancas in Burgos - mainly because it's small and because of the ambience and the castle on the hill.

This is a wonderful campsite and the family (mother, father, and son) who own and run it are a delight - they couldn't be more helpful and kind. I go to the Camino de Santiago each year to offer first aid and pastoral care to pilgrims (I am Br. David of the Society of Pilgrim Friars).

The site is quite small, clean, and well maintained. Bathrooms are immaculate. There is a bar restaurant on site, it has free wif-fi - and all food and drinks are at very reasonable prices. The food is simple Spanish but the absolute treat is that mother cooks it all from fresh ingredients, real home cooking - and her Paella is magnificent! There is a pilgrim refugio (overnight pilgrim hostal) on site so there is also the opportunity to chat with pilgrims from all over the world who are on their 500 mile walk to Santiago de Compostela. There are some quite exotic birds in the area and the walk up to the castle ruin is well worth it. No flashy excitement on this site but a good ambience and honest friendliness - I couldn't rate it more highly.

The Route of St James, which we'd followed from St Jean Pied de Port in France (as tourists rather than pilgrims) runs right through this medieval village, hence the name of the campsite. There are a couple of pilgrim hostels in town but quite a few travellers doing the long-distance walk choose to stay at the campsite. In the bar there are numerous photos of pilgrims, some on foot or bicycle, some with a donkey, and some even on motorbikes. It's a small and friendly site, a little bit run-down, but in good weather a peaceful, leafy refuge. Unfortunately it was pouring with rain when we arrived and the site was very muddy indeed - my wellies came in useful. But when the sun came out it was very pretty, overlooked by a ruined castle on a hill. The shower block is ok but in need of a bit of attention as 2 out of the 3 showers in the ladies didn't work very well. However it was clean, the loos had both seats and toilet paper, the washing-up and laundry room was large and under cover (but only one sink had a hot tap) and there was an indoor drying area for hikers' clothes, with a pool table. Reception, bar, restaurant and shop are all in one room and the friendly owner speaks English. We spent a day in Burgos (40 minutes' drive) which is a very attractive and historic city, the home of El Cid. This site isn't for you if you want entertainment and top-class facilities but it was relaxed and friendly and we would have stayed longer had the weather been better!
