smashing campsite - good clean showers & toilets. Reception staff helpful.
Easy access into the local tow, Ancora, with it’s beaches, bars & restaurants.
Nice to be able to swim in the river direct from the site.
pitches, unmarked but large and generally level with lots of shade.

Lovely, large, grassy site. Free choice of position, tree shade if wanted. Good facilities. No noise except bubbling stream which runs along the side of the site. Very friendly owner. Free wi-fi near office.
10 min walk to Intermarche, 15 min to attractive sea front and restaurants etc.

Excellent site, but whatever your sat nav says, do not turn off the main road until you see the camping sign! Really enjoyed our stay here, but marked it down on staff friendliness because of one person - the owner\'s son. He has the charm of Basil Fawlty and the skills of Manuel. And sadly he was behind the bar during our stay... A brief illustrative anecdote - we ordered our meal and a bottle of wine our first night. Five minutes later, no wine. Queried with Basil - \'what\'s the matter with you, you\'re on holiday you can wait ten minutes\'. Sat down, asked again five minutes later - \'we have no glasses\'. So I fetched my own... Later that evening another unfortunate went to ask where his dinner was, ordered at 7.30 (this was was 9.00). No apology, just took his order again. The guy may have mental health issues, but he really shouldn\'t be allowed front of house. By contrast, Geoff and his partner in the restaurant were charm and efficiency personified. But after all that, site still highly recommended!

Great site. Lots of space, pitch up where you wish. Grass and trees make a very pleasant setting. Great walks around the roads and tracks near the campsite. Easy cycling along the paths all the way up the coast. Easy walk into town. Great value.

Only stopped 2 nights here, but good clean facilities. No marked pitches which we like, under the trees. Ate at the restaurant first night and had a superb sword fish.

At first sight not too impressed but actually a really nice site. Cycle paths nearby that are off road to local town. Pick your own place not necessarily marked put plenty of room. Toilets clean. Didn’t use the restaurant. Beautiful beaches nearby and supermarket walkable.

Whatever you do, DO NOT follow sat nav directions from the N305. The R. de Santa Luzia is completely unsuitable for a motorhome. Instead, access the site from the N13(signposted).
This is a pleasant, quiet site with good security. The owner is friendly but doesn’t speak much English. However, there is a young lad about in the evenings who speaks very good English. Large sandy beach within walking distance and a supermarket nearby (about 15mins walk). The walk into the local town with a few restaurants/bars/shops takes about 30 mins on a level board walk avoiding busy roads. WiFi is good, sanitation blocks clean and all in good working order.
I am happy to recommend this site.
