Alan Rogers Review
This smart, well run site is close to three fine sandy beaches so gets very busy at peak times. It has a backdrop of the mountains in the nature reserve known as the Sueve which is important for a breed of short Asturian horse, the Asturcone. The site has 330 grass pitches (220 for touring units) of 40-70 sq.m. and with 180 electricity connections available (10A). There are some shady, terraced pitches while others are on an open, slightly sloping field with limited views of the sea. The restaurant with a terrace serves local dishes and overlooks the pool with hills and woods beyond.
The mountains of Picos de Europa are only 35 km. away, Covadonga and its lakes are near and Ribadesella is 12 km. It is an ideal area for sea and mountain sports, horse riding, walking, birdwatching and cycling. The A8 motorway viaduct curves its way across the valley inland from the site and there is some traffic noise.
Three toilet blocks provide comfortable, controllable showers and vanity style washbasins, private cabins, laundry facilities and external dishwashing (cold water). Supermarket. Bar/restaurant. Swimming pool. Tennis. Play area in lemon orchard. Limited English is spoken. No electric barbecues. WiFi in the restaurant area.
