Stopover from Santander

We arrived mid December in the dark and very wet conditions, so can’t comment on all aspects of this site. However, the toilet / shower block was really clean and well equipped, and we used the bar for a couple of beers - the staff were really friendly. In the morning we picked up some supplies from the shop, and got our coffee mug refilled- again very friendly service.

El AStral - A Fading Star

We've been coming to ElAstral for a number of years but this is the first time we've used a third party (CAMC) fot booking. Originally it was an ACSI sithe, then became Camping Red and previously we either turned up on spec or booked directly with the site. It's conveniently located for travelling down from SW France (St Jean de Luz) down to Andalucia via Caceres. The overnight pitches are a bit basic but in some you can stay hitched up if you need a quick getaway although these pitches are cheek by jowl. We booked a "special" pitch and it was very large and very grassy, although it was at the far end of the site away from the toilet block. The electrics on the standard pitches look like they should be condemned and some don't work or a long way from the pitch. Reception is a bit hit and miss - some staff are really welcoming and smile - others are very grumpy and in the wrong job. The toilet block is starting to need attention but still quite acceptable, but definitely nowhere near as good as Touriscampo, but then not many are. The swimming pool is really welcome on a hot afternoon and is surrounded by grass and has a lifeguard. Restaurant is very good although the service could be improved by a bit of training. I recommend the beef sirloin but it's actually filet steak. A lot of the other cuts of meat are veal which doesn't suit us. All in all it's a good site for an overnight stay and with a bit of maintenance and training could be a lot better.

Excellent Stop Over and More

We probably saw this site at its worst checking in on the 4th January however we were still impressed. We had a slight difficulty checking in as the reception was shut and after ringing the bell a gentleman appeared who seemed to be a kind of maintenance man. He was very friendly but spoke no English. Fortunately my Spanish was enough to get us sorted out and I am sure most days of the year this wouldn't be a problem. The toilet/shower block looked old externally but inside had clearly been renovated to a high standard and is excellent. The town of Tordesilas is only a ten minute walk away and we were fortunate that our visit coincided with the Three Kings Day celebrations. There is an onsite restaurant but it was shut during our visit but is apparently open most of the year. Overall excellent and we will definitely be back.

Great overnight stop

used this site a few times now for over night stop heading south and also heading north back to the ferry, not far from the main road, comfort plus pitches are ideal as just plug in the water/waste and power. Restaurante Avenida over the bridge is a must for dinner saves cooking and cheaper than campsite prices for a meal. campsite prices for the bar are very reasonable. Staff are very friendly and helpful. toilet block and showers clean and modern. only used the pool once a little chilly in July, but not too much trouble getting in, didn't sit around the pool much as there were a few mozzies. little shop doesn't have much in the way of supplies, water bread cold fridge with wine and ice. Definitely worth a visit

Convenient for Tordesillas and Santander

We spent two nights here before heading off for Santander and home. As we had an early evening ferry, there was plenty of time to make the150 mile journey. The site was fairly quiet (late March) and as we arrived early afternoon we had a good choice of pitch, with electricity and water adjacent. Some of the pitches need a very long lead, so we were lucky. The lady in Reception spoke good English and was very helpful. The toilet block was modern, well-apponted and very clean but we had a disappointing meal in the restaurant. We found the wifi reasonably priced but the signal was not always as good as it might have been. The interesting citadel of Tordesillas, which is well worth a visit, is a short walk across an ancient bridge over the River Duero. There are also walks starting from near the site which can be found in a leaflet (in English!) at Reception. An ideal last (or, indeed, first) stop in Spain and certainly good for a stay of a couple of nights.

Super stop off

En route to Portugal, easy to find site with plenty of room and good access for our fifth wheel rig. Superb shower block, tons of hot water and very clean - didn't mind the classical music either!! For the sadly afflicted like myself there was even an ironing board... Good laundry once you realise you have to buy a token from reception to use the machine. Great coffee and small shop, did not eat there. Eduardo, the owner, speaks 6 languages, exceptional English. Very helpful and knowledgeable. Walkable to town, shame the site could not be on the river front. Very peaceful, only noises were geese and church bells! Would definitely use again.

A very nice campsite

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Nice emplacements, very pleasant swimming pool,copious quantities of hoses to water plots, friendly staff and welcome classical music in the toilet blocks! They made a mistake with our booking and had to downgrade our emplacement (which was still excellent) but instead gave us a complimentary meal in their restaurant, which was superb! Would recommend anyone to come here. A little noisy perhaps due to proximity to main roads but this didn't worry us.

Great overnight stop

We stopped overnight on the way to Portugal. After a long drive, it was pleasantly restful, by the river and lovely bridge , with the sound of the weir. Decent sized grassy pitch. Good service from staff and a pleasant meal.

Great place (Stayed 9 nights)

We stayed here for 8 nights (4 on the way South and 4 on the return North). Whilst there we toured the area and visited Salamanca, Segovia (Visit the Alkazar) etc. If you drive and like History, visit Puras (Roman Villa). Nice site, easy to find and reasonable access around the site. Pool was clean and had a nice setting. WiFi worked well. Try the Restaurant, food is very good and well priced. Staff are very helpful.
