- 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.
Open from 06/05/2020 to 09/13/2020

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.
