General

  • Seafront site with direct access to La Franca beach
  • 20 kilometres from the Picos de Europa National Park
  • Spacious well-kept washrooms, miniature golf and beachside tennis

Spectacular Spanish sea and spectacular Spanish mountains… this site is in splendid setting. On the northern coast with direct access to a sandy beach, Camping Las Hortensias is also a short drive from the mighty peaks of the Picos de Europa National Park, nicknamed the 'peaks of Europe' by sailors returning to these shores from lands of far and wide.

The surrounding provinces of Asturias and Cantabria make up a plentiful chunk of peaceful and rural land on Spain's north, more than half of which is covered by mountains. A good slice more of the region is covered by gorgeous coast, such as the small cove and golden sands Camping Las Hortensias has direct access to, a kilometre from the seaside village of La Franca.

The waters from this seafront site (do see pics) are safe and calm for swimming, and have good fishing at low tide. Fishing ports, resorts and sunbathing spots are scattered along the coast east and west from here; ancient villages and old churches dot the mountain valleys inland, and there's some tiptop wildlife watching too, such as getting out to try and spy the Cantabrian brown bear in the Picos national park.

Las Hortensias is a green and spacious site, with grass pitches and neatly-kept paved roads. You won't need a pool as the site is so close to the beach, but other leisurely options including a tennis court, miniature golf and playground are to hand for days out of the water, and a restaurant and snack bar for fuelling up at afterwards.

Also on site are spacious and well-maintained modern washrooms, a covered washing-up area, and disabled facilities.

Lovely quiet site with modern facilities 13/07/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Caroline K. Mobile phone icon Confirmed

  • Electric optional grass motorhome pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The location was really lovely and picturesque. Quiet little beach location.
    Facilities were excellent, modern and clean with friendly staff.
    Small shop sells a little bit of everything which is good as there are no shops close by.
    Dog shower was a good idea.
    Site was kept clean & today with regularly emptied bins dotted everywhere.

    Disliked: 

    Take a wide swing when arriving at the beach due to the bridge arch.
    Ground was very wet and quite a few uneven, soggy pitches.
    No dogs allowed on the beach in July & August.

Good site, excellent shower/toilet block, bad fresh water cleanliness. 06/07/2018

  • Electric optional grass touring caravan or trailer tent pitch

  • Liked: 

    Access to the sea. Helpful staff. Very good, clean and modern toilet block. The best in Spain? Probably !!

    Disliked: 

    Drinking water taps.
    There are only 2 on the site. They are situated either side of the facilities block.
    They have fixed hose pipes that lay on the ground. One is next to the caravan toilet empty station and is used to flush the container. This is a serious health issue that should be addressed asap. The other tap with its hose pipe lays in the dirt and has to be washed before filling water container. Yuk.

    Excellent facilities - everything we wanted was there - constantly cleaned toilets, a small shop, tennis court, footie pitch etc but it is the proximity to the beach that makes it. Lots of stuff to do nearby too.

Fantastic site. Excellent customer service. Highly recommended. 09/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Joanna E. Confirmed

  • Electric optional grass motorhome pitch

  • Liked: 

    Direct access to fabulous beach. Fantastic views in all directions. Friendly helpful staff. Good mini supermarket with warm freshly made bread in the morning. Excellent very clean and tidy shower, washing up and toilet facilities. Restaurant/bar overlooking the beach. Large open pitches in both sun and shade

    Disliked: 

    All the pitches are grass based. Because the location near to the Picos means the site does get rained on, some of the lower pitches can get a bit soggy. I would like to suggest consideration be given to converting some of the lower pitches to hardstanding. However, I would also add that, following some overnight rain, the very helpful staff moved us to a higher pitch (and gave us a choice of alternative pitches to choose from), so absolutely no complaints.

    Twisty turny road to get to it & under a bridge at a very strange angle, and sat nav got confused getting us there, but only a short journey off main road so totally worth it.

Local attractions

The beach directly accessed from Las Hortensias is La Franca, popular on this part of Spanish coast for its golden sands, safe calm waters, fishing and spectacular scenery. The tiny and secluded beach of El Oso can be reached towards the east of La Franca, through a wall of algae-covered rocks.

Among the ancient caves around these coastal parts too, Pindal prehistoric cave five kilometres away near the town of Pimiango is one of the several north Spain examples of subterranean artwork, in a stunning setting on the shores of the Cantabrian Sea.

Pindal is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Cave of Altamira and Paleolithic Cave Art of Northern Spain: see also Altamira (obvs) as well as the prehistoric rock art centre and museum of Tito Bustillo, about 40 kilometres to the west at Ribadesella.

About 20 or so kilometres inland, the Picos de Europa National Park is another big pull of the region, for its mountains, hiking and some of the deepest caves in the world in Torca del Cerro, Sima de la Cornisa, Torca los Rebecos and Pozo del Madejuno. If you're a wildlife watcher, this is the part of Spain where you might see the Cantabrian brown bear; look out too for wolves, chamois, eagles and vultures.

Medieval Santillana del Mar is 40 kilometres from the site, and Santander 60.
