Camping Las Hortensias: Beach next to the site

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 afterwards.

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

    The site loos were super clean. the situation was so near the beach and the restaurant at the beach was great. The staff were very freindly and helpful. The little shop has everything except fresh produce. The internet was very good

    Disliked: 

    It is some distance from any shopping so if you like fresh salad or fruit take it in, otherwise the little shop has everything.

    Lovely beach - big tidal range but sandy and not crowded when we stayed

    Facilities mostly excellent (no plugs in the washing up sinks)

    Very nice touch to give discount at the neighbouring hotel for dinner - we had a great (and very reasonable) dinner

    Disliked: 

    A heads up about the access road ( very narrow and sharp bends) might be helpful

    Very helpful, polite staff, nice flat pitch would stay at the campsite again but not eat at the seaside restaurant.

    Disliked: 

    Los Emilos restaurant by the sea, the most awful service we’ve both ever experienced, sour faced, rude staff in the evening (there was one taller lady in the afternoon who was fine) it stopped us staying at the campsite for a second night unfortunately. We both ended up with a dodgy stomach after eating here.

    Fabulous location right by the beautiful beach.

    Disliked: 

    In a motorhome it is a bit isolated if you don't have alternative transport.
    We took our dogs and there are not many walks to take them other than around the vicinity.
    The small shower block to the west of the complex did not have hot water at the time of our visit and was only Luke warm. There were however no queues to it during the limited amount of folks allowed with the COVID rules

    Closeness to outstandingly beautiful beach and surrounds, Freindly English speaking staff and good cafe/restaurant. Next to a hotel with a good restaurant in as well. The site is well maintained and toilet and shower area were very well furnished and comfortable.

    Disliked: 

    The fresh water and chemical toilet in the open next to each other, in fact the water pipe for filling the MH was used to flush the chemical pan as well ! Not very hygienic that one !

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, 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.
