 Bit perturbed when we were told that our motorhome @ 7. 5m was too big for the ACSI priced pitch meaning we had to have a gran confort at 5euro a night more. When we looked at the pitches our motorhome would easily have fitted in the standard pitches!

Nice site with good facilities thought the water wasnít very hot and as it was only May the shop and pool were shut.

Free and reasonably strong wifi was available throughout the site.

Took a while to get my head around the bus schedule but Carlos at reception was especially helpful. Regular buses went to/from Villaviciosa and Madrid the ones between the campsite and Villaviciosa were far less regular. Once sorted by the second day though we didnít spend time waiting too long for the bus!

 Chose this site for access to Madrid. Out of season very quiet. We used ACSI card so good value, though we were first given an superior pitch with a supplement. We looked at it and chose the adjacent one, only slightly smaller and at the basic price. Stony surface as seems common in Spain.

Quite a steep approach and turn into our pitch but used motor mover.

Toilet block fine though lights on automatic timer could leave you showering in the dark!

For Madrid, we street-parked near the European University, 5 mins drive away and caught frequent bus to Principe Pio bus station. Visited 3 days. First day got 2. 60 euros single fare in. Then bought blank Metro card at machine (2. 50) and a 10 journey bus card (16. 10) at an office. Saved 10 euros.

Didn't want to use underground, but other travel cards available. We walked a lot visiting three superb art galleries and Royal Palace.

Take care returning from University bus stop as you have to travel North beside/on the major road before crossing under it and turning south to access the site.

Also visited Toledo and El Escorial and Valley of the Fallen, within easy driving distances.

 There are a number of sites in the Madrid area but this is the nearest to the city, which can be reached by bus from the site.

Reception staff spoke English and were helpful. As you enter the site there are a lot of permanent caravans, which have rather a 'shanty town' appearance, but the touring pitches are in a separate area at the far end of the site.

Pitches are level, on sandy/gravelly ground, and of reasonable size. Some are completely sheltered by sunshades, the rest have a small sunshade per pitch to put your table and chairs under. This would be very useful in summer as Madrid gets extremely hot, but in January it was very, very cold!

Only one shower block was open low season but it was fully enclosed and heated, which was a boon. It was the smartest and most modern I have ever seen! Only one drawback - too hi-tec. The taps and showers all work by motion sensors, this means if you move in the shower the water stops! I found this so irritating I ended up using the disabled facilities (we were the only touring unit on site so I knew it would cause no inconvenience. ) These were the best I have ever seen, a whole separate bathroom with toilet, 2 washbasins at different heights and a shower with regular taps.

The washing-up sinks were also in a fully-enclose room but also had motion-sensitive taps, which meant you had to keep your hand under the tap the whole time you were filling the bowl!

There is also a swimming pool, restaurant and laundry room, though we didn't use them. We were only staying a couple of nights while visiting the art galleries in Madrid.

They've obviously spent a lot of money on refurbishing the shower blocks, but I think normal taps would be more user-friendly!
