General

  • Eco-friendly stays in spectacular surroundings
  • Wildlife haven with mountain views
  • Two pools, restaurant and play area

Nature-based stays in exceptional surroundings was the aim of two friends 20 years when they decided to set up a Cantabrian campsite. The result was Camping San Pelayo, a peaceful place in a wildlife haven that the friends have improved year by year to keep their guests as comfy as poss.

San Pelayo is surrounded by nature and greenery, with views of the Picos de Europa and with the Deva river running a few meters away. The aim of the site was to set up an eco-friendly and amiable atmosphere while keeping everything modern and running smoothly, and the owners reckon this spot is just the ticket for a relaxing hol: one could loaf about and read a book, take a scenic stroll in the site surroundings, or just fall asleep on one of the sunbeds…

The site has two pools, one for adults and one for kids. There's also a restaurant, a play area, a shop and up to date heated shower facilities with free hot water.

The location of this site is perfect even though it ... 07/08/2017

    The location of this site is perfect even though it is 5.5km from Potes. There are many fantastic walks that start from the site, these are explained to you when you arrive. The staff are incredibly helpful. The toilet facilities were a real surprise to us as in many cubicles there was a basin, toilet and great shower. There was also a hairdryer! There can be fewer swimming pools with such a dramatic backdrop, my children spent every afternoon here after some great trekking. The restaurant serves the best value 'menu del dia' of very good quality food too. We ate there everyday and didn't feel the need to go into Potes for food. During our holiday, this was the best value campsite by far.

    Disliked: 

    The only minor disadvantage is that this site is quite small and when it gets busy, it does feel a bit cramped.

An excellent site well worth the stay. 19/07/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Ian H. Confirmed

  • Liked: 

    Our pitch was shaded and large. It was in an excellent position. The staff were friendly and helpful. The toilet blocks were clean and spacious. The location was quite spectacular with the mountains rising up behind us. Nothing really much else to say except we would certainly return.

    Disliked: 

    If I had any criticism it was only that the campsite could be quite noisy at night going on to around midnight. However, that said, there was a nice friendly atmosphere and the noise was simply families enjoying themselves. No music just laughter and people talking. One also has to realise this is a Spanish camp and the Spanish eat much later than us.

    Great Site however a couple of things to be aware of!!!!

    Pros...
    - Large swimming pool for the kids plus a small infant friendly pool away from the main area
    - Good food in the restaurant on site
    - Friendly and helpful staff
    - Great location, close to Potes and the mountains

    Overall...

    Enjoyed it, quite an eye opener.

    Disliked: 

    Cons...
    - If you visit in August expect to be overrun by the spanish holiday makers with all their family
    - The main campsite is very crammed in with little if no space to move (we were lucky as there is a separate area away from the mahem but only for about 6 campervans)
    - You'll need a Euro plug converter for the mains
    - The pool becomes massivly busy in August so much so there is little space.

Local attractions

Cantabria's a fab spot for Spanish hols, whether your tastes tend towards the placid or getting active outdoors. Quad biking, paintball, canoeing, rafting, mountain biking, hiking and cycling are all available in the surrounding area: if you need a few tips on where to start, the Camping San Pelayo staff are always chuffed to share their local knowledge.

The site's also a handy base for exploring the Picos de Europa mountain range, a short drive away. (Why are they called the European mountains? Because at only about 20 kilometres inland from the Spanish coast, they were probably the first sight on the continent greeting weary travellers sailing back from the Americas centuries ago.)

The range includes the Cantabrian Mountains, a top hiking spot and climbing spot as well as skiing around the resorts of Alto Campoo, Valgrande-Pajares and Manzaneda.
