Pool area in winter

General

  • Family site surrounded by beaches, fishing villages and mountains
  • A 10-minute drive to Oiartzun/French border; 15 from San Sebastián
  • Pool, terrace bar restaurant, takeaway, play area and TV room

You should, of course, settle for stays at this Basque Country site because of its proximity to the splendid seaside town of San Sebastián, less than 20 minutes' drive along the coast: the fab coastal resort has been lauded as the most swish in all of Spain and was a European Capital of Culture in 2016.

However. A stay at Camping Oliden will also have you surrounded by fishing villages and mountains, in an area well known for its hiking and cycling (local town Oiartzun is on the world-famed St James's Way pilgrimage route), and a simple 20-minute drive to the French border. Basque Country, seaside and French days all in one stay? Ooh la la.

You can say a temporary and gleeful adiós to your four wheels when bunking down at this scenic family site, as Oliden's locale in the Oarsoaldea region has easy access to the beaches of San Sebastián, Hondarribia and Hendaye, via the local bus service that runs between them stopping at the site entrance. Local town Oiartzun is a cinch to reach by public transport too, and even supplies are easily sorted without having to use any sort of engine at all, as the local supermarket is a mere 100 metres away.

And if you can't even be faffed stirring as far as that? Settle your leisurely self down instead at the terrace of Oliden's bar-restaurant, for drinks, eats and free wifi, or take your swimsuited self over to the outdoor pool for dips. Both sunny and shaded spots are easily found on site too if your inclination is to hide away for a peaceful siesta.

Great for access to San Sebastian but in an urban setting09/07/2019

Reviewer's country: FranceCaroline W.Confirmed

  • Electric optional grass tent, trailer tent or touring caravan pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Friendly and helpful staff who spoke some English.
    Clean and modern toilet & shower facilities.
    Good for access to San Sebastian via public transport.
    Reasonably priced.

    Disliked: 

    Parts of the site were tired looking and untidy. The pool area was tired and dated.
    Proximity to main roads meant a lot of traffic noise ( although we wanted the access to public transport so this was inevitable ) the general area surrounding the site was rather run down ( not their fault but may be a consideration if you are looking for a pretty setting)

poor location next to busy road and noisy factory.08/27/2019

  • Liked: 

    Location is convenient to visit Hondarribia and San Sebastián by car

    Disliked: 

    The site is on the edge of an ugly industrial estate/ retail park right next to a busy road - our pitch was next to the road so the traffic noise was constant and very noticeable until very early in the morning. There was also a factory nearby which produced a loud hammering noise all through the night. The other campers were very respectful and kept the noise down at night, but the busy road and factory made it very difficult to get any sleep at all. Wifi signal poor.

Local attractions

As it's around 10 minutes by car to the French border from here, the site's within easy reach of French coastal towns and beaches such as Hendaye (12 kilometres), Saint-Jean-de-Luz (24 kilometres) and Biarritz and Anglet (both 41 kilometres).

It's a short drive or bus ride too to spectacular San Sebastián, the vibrant coastal city known for its beaches, such as La Concha and its fab views over the bay; Zurriola, for surfing, and Ondarreta, with vintage funfair and scenic funicular rides up Mount Igueldo.

Also in San Sebastián is Miramar Palace, a late 19th-century English-style royal holiday home built during the time of Queen María Cristina; an aquarium filled with sharks, rays and tropical fish; San Telmo Museum, set in the Old Town and exhibiting Basque archaeological collections, and several internationally famed festivals of music, film, sport and culture.

Pamplona around an hour's drive away is known for its week-long San Fermín festival in July, celebrating the heritage of the area via various folkloric events including the running of the bulls.
