Stunning location, extensive facilities and nearby Ainsa is a delight.

We stayed here at the very end of September for 3 nights. The setting of the site is magnificent, overlooked by glorious mountain scenery. The drive to the site from Huesca was a pleasure in its own right. The area where we were located consisted of spacious pitches, with high hedges providing privacy. Our pitch had 10A EHU, but I had to argue to get this rather than 6A. There are no serviced pitches, with taps fairly close and a motorhome service point behind reception. The area where most caravans and motorhome were situated was quiet day and night (notwithstanding a little bit of noise from the stone/concrete works 1/4 mile away on weekdays). The camping area under trees nearer the toilet/shower block was more lively and noisy but sufficiently far away from our pitch as to be no problem. The sanitation facilities were extensive and spotless, if needing refurbishing. The washing machine and dryer were not very effective. Disappointingly the restaurant only served paella or pizzas (possibly a low season issue), and they were overpriced if nicely cooked. The swimming pools and sports facilities were excellent. Apart from one briefly surly receptionist the day we arrived, all staff were friendly, helpful and very good humoured. The shop was well stocked. WiFi was only available around the bar. However, there was an overall feeling that refurbishment and upgrading was needed across the site. Nevertheless, the jewel in the crown is the delightful old town of Ainsa just under 1 1/2 miles away, with a glorious medieval plaza and good bars and restaurants, and fantastic views from the castle walls.

Best Spanish campsite we’ve stayed in!!!

Having just read the last review I can’t help but think they have the wrong place! It was our second trip back here. Planned on staying one night but ended up staying three as we couldn’t tear ourselves away. During check in they gave us a free voucher towards food in the restaurant and we were guided to an area of the campsite and left to choose our pitch. Lovely large hedged in pitch with hookup. It’s was peaceful and quite during the day and the pool areas both inside and out were well cared for and clean. The facilities were cleaned regularly and were of good standard. We love the walk (40mins) into the old historical town of Ainsa with its wonderful shops and restaurants. On check out we were even given a free bottle of local red wine!!!

Dissappointed caravaners

We were very disappointed with this site. It was our first caravan holiday in Spain so we booked a caravan site through the caravan club. we booked and paid for six nights but left after one. Our concerns included: 1. This site was very crowded, we were initially put in a very overcrowded area but we asked to move to a quieter area. The quieter areas had very little shade. 2. The site felt uncared for, with we felt a pack them in without thought for people's comfort. 3. The noise level was were very loud in the day, with some loud noise continuing into early morning, barking dogs, people talking loudly. 4. The cleanliness was poor particularly around the café and pool area, where there was a very strong smell of dog faeces and urine. Philippa and Rob

Beautiful location

This is our third visit to this site and I again I was 'wowed' by the scenery. The location is amazing and we traveled to France through the tunnel under the Pyrenees mountains. Spectacular. We arrived at the back end of August and this was the quietest that we had ever known the site to be, however, we arrived on a Thursday and they have a live band. We wandered down and had a couple of drinks whilst we listened to the music - restaurant is right next to the pool, which was lit up for the evening - people were having meals from the restaurant and the atmosphere was fabulous! This site has a very authentic feel to it - if (like us) you go to Spain to experience Spanish culture, then this is the place for you. Ainsa is a must - the old part of town is so beautiful and - once again, we had a meal at Dos Rios in the new part of town - with food on the menu like Carpaccio of Trout from the River Cinca - served with it's own roe... spectacular for 16 Euros for a 3 course meal with wine. I can strongly recommend this site and the location.

Lovely location

Lovely location in some great countryside, nothing wrong with the site other than the grass pitches were suffering from all the rain and were very muddy. I was nearly bogged down when it came time to leave, lots of wheel spinning! Ainsa is a beautiful spot and the surrounding countryside is worth exploring. I didn't eat in the restaurant - only used the bar! A site I would return to..

Mountain views

Arrived to a horrendous thunderstorm so count choose our own pitch .As this is a 6 amp site the electric kept tripping .Toilets were okay but as we were only there when it was raining they were continually draped in bikers apparel and mud was everywhere. The pools are lovely and clean and the indoor is heated. Lots of walks around the campsite and although the weather kept us from biking it was still possible to visit nearby villages and the local town of Ainsa and is walkable .A word of warning before going either on a hike or bike ride check the weather forecast at reception as the weather can turn quickly . Small camp shop, bar and restaurant all clean tidy and friendly and informative staff.

Lovely site in the Pyrenees

We stayed for two nights in early January. Fantastic views of the mountains nice size pitches with privacy hedging. Nice during the day but temperatures plummeted to -9 degrees overnight the motorhome heaters struggled to cope with the temperature. On the second day we were the only van on the site. Only downside the mains electric kept tripping even with just an electric kettle. Apart from that would use as a stopover again. Owners very friendly and helpful.

Spectacular Scenery

A small site in the foothills of the Pyrenees. We only stayed one night en route back to France. The staff were excellent, as was the small shop. The ‘restaurant’ was merely a fast food eatery with nothing very imaginative on the menu. We didn’t try it. Our only problem with the site was the electricity. Every other site we stayed at had no problems, despite only offering a 6amp supply. On this site the only thing in our motorhome we could run was the fridge. Anything else, eg. water heater, hair dryer, tripped the supply. Fortunately, a friendly member of staff left the supply box open for us so we could reset it ourselves whenever it tripped. If you do visit the site, take heed of the warning if approaching from France via the Bielsa tunnel. The Spanish side is fine, but the French side is VERY steep with a large number of 180º hairpin bends. Definitely not for the faint hearted, although the scenery is spectacular.

Really good location

This is an excellent location, which loads of walks from the doorstep, and Ainsa is a joy. You will be allocated a site, which tends to be in a busy area, but I found that you can move to a quieter site with better views. The  Spanish tend to congregate together and in family groups, so can be noisy, but out of season you can easily have a quieter pitch. There is an area which has greener grass and higher hedges which is nice with good views..... Other areas have hedges still at the baby stage and look less appealing. Having said this there is direct access to the river side from these which is better with a dog which I have.....and I did not see any dog mess on the site, but plenty just outside....the concept of bagging it does not seem to exist. Great swimming pool and bar area.
