Pitches next to the lake

General

  • Family-friendly site under five minutes’ walk from the local beach
  • Peaceful spot with lots of shade and a natural lake for fishing
  • Less than half an hour’s walk from L’Escala Old Town

Dreaming of a rural getaway without having to leave the reassuring embrace of civilisation? Càmping Lacus, a family-friendly site in a quiet forested area close to the centre of L’Escala on the Costa Brava in Catalonia, allows you to settle down in a scenic spot while being within easy reach of everything you might need for your hols.

The site is less than five minutes’ walk from Riells beach – the largest in L’Escala – where you can have a go at windsurfing or kayaking, take out a catamaran or simply doze on the sand. When you’re feeling the need for some retail therapy, the shops are a short walk away.

On site, laze under the trees or plonk yourself next to the lake for a spot of fishing. If you’d prefer to get a bit more active, but still in peace and quiet, have a game of pétanque, rack up a game of billiards or take a walk around the lake.

No idle times are quite complete without a good feed, so head to the on-site restaurant for a meal, then waddle over to the bar to unwind on the terrace with a drink or two (it’s your hols – no one will judge). If you’d prefer a change of scenery, there are plenty of restaurants within an easy walk.

    The convenience of the campsite to the town is perfect, and even though you are close to the town you wouldn't think so as the campsite has a small lake and well organised to give big pitches and lots of privacy and shade.

    Disliked: 

    There were some groups who were extremely loud late into the morning.

    Also, in one of the men's blocks there was two or three showers and toilets that were out of order.

    What a fabulous place. An oasis in the middle of a town within a stones throw to a fabulous beach, restaurants and shops. The campsite facilities may not be the most up to date but were always clean and in good order. The showers were excellent. Plenty of powerful hot water. No pressing of buttons for a 10 second blast of tepid water. The site pitches were spacious all with electric and if you are lucky there are pitches along the lakeside. All the staff were fantastic, always helpful polite and courteous and spoke many languages. There is a small bar which has recently been opened with a great service. We were told that the site changed hands the previous season as was previously poorly run. We can only say that the people now running this site were a joy and during our stay they were putting touches to the site to improve the camping experience and also have plans to reopen the restaurant and update the fascilates. All the pitches are surrounded by trees and gives some shade and makes it really pleasant. The facilities are a bit of a uphill hike as they are placed above the terraced camping pitches and getting to them are up some steep paths and steps. Apart from these we had a really great stay here and would come back again. Highly recommend this site.

Local attractions

There’s more to L’Escala than just the beach. Càmping Lacus is within walking distance of the scenic Old Town and the museum of Alfolí de la Sal – while you’re wandering the streets, be sure to take the time to try the local delicacy: anchovies. There are oodles of factories to visit, and the Museu de l’Anxova i de la Sal is worth a stop.

The site is a 10-minute drive from the remains of the millennia-old trading town, Empúries, where you can explore the ruins that date to the second-century BC and visit the Museu d’Arqueologia de Catalunya.

For a taste of human folly, pull on your serious shoes and hike to the spectacular but unfinished Montgrí Castle at the top of Torroella de Montgrí mountain then make yourself feel better about the successes of human civilisation with a visit to the Fundació Mascort gallery, both less than 20 minutes from Càmping Lacus.

If you want a broader urban experience than you’ve had in L’Escala, the museums, galleries, restaurants and shops of the city of Girona are less than an hour from the site. The Museu del Cinema-Col·lecció Tomàs Mallol, the Passeig de la Muralla and, 20 minutes outside the city, the Fundació Mona primate sanctuary are must-sees.
