Why stay here ...

A former farm, this large and attractive site is located midway between Barcelona and Tarragona, and offers an enjoyable stay all year round. Guests are welcomed by the friendly, English-speaking staff and the hardstanding pitches are set on gently sloping ground, shaded by trees.

The facilities are first-class and include a lovely pool complex with water jets and a wellness centre with a gym, sauna and Jacuzzi. With a strong emphasis on social activities the campsite offers aqua gym, Zumba, salsa classes and bingo nights. Evenings can be spent dining in the beautifully restored Catalan restaurant and bar.

The site is well-placed for visiting Barcelona, which can be reached by excellent public transport links or car. Visitors here can explore Gaudí’s famous cathedral and Park Güell, as well as the various art galleries and the bustling street of Las Ramblas. Tarragona is also within driving distance and is an important historic town.

First ever Theft - Ferral families - poor site control

Bad experience from the start, worst pitch available, didn't fit our rig, had hassle to move. Ferral Spanish families creating havoc, site could;t control them.. does;t bother me as such as have earplugs... but then awoke to find we'd had chairs stolen.... Use at your own risk... one member said "Well it could happen anywhere"... true but in 5 years and in excess of 50 sites it hasn't ... it had a bad feeling from the very start, should have listened to my gut feel...

Great Site

We stayed here for 10 nights, early august 2018 in a touring caravan. as mentioned already its a big site, but where we were pitched was quiet. the pitches were a little small thus meaning that with our 7.5 metre van, awning etc we struggled to get our car on aswell so could only park it half on the pitch. the amenities were great, swimming pool was excellent, and we spend many days there. the supermarket is well stocked, and relatively cheap considering its a shop on site. the site is well situated for Barcelona and surrounding area. ***** you will require a continental hook up adapter. ******* only negative is depending what pitch your given the pitch surround is hard to get the caravan over and if you dont have a mover you will struggle to push it on. the phone signal is good within the local area and vilanova is a great place to visit, lovely beach etc.

First class, ideal for visiting Barcelona

We stayed three nights here in order to visit Barcelona. This is one of the best sites we've ever used in Europe, barring the fact that it can be a tad noisy at night. Take earplugs if this might be a problem. Other than that - it's top class. The bus is currently route e16 from right outside the gate. every 30 min Mon-Fri, hourly at weekends, either 1hr15 or 1hr30 journey respectively and about 5€40 single fare.

Not that wonderful

We chose to stay here on our way back from Southern Spain for no other reason other than convenience - it was at the right place to break the journey home. It is an enormous site - and thus is a little impersonal. Good and polite check in with an escort to the pitch - through some very tight turns which with a 7.5 metre caravan was not so easy. It was impossible due to lack of space to reverse onto the pitch - we rather had to unhitch and use the mover but the height of the kerbstone around the pitch made getting onto the pitch a challenge. The super pitches are big enough but the waste water outlet is not well suited and require some creativity in connecting to it. Pitches are well shaded meaning poor TV signal but probably good in the summer. Lots of statics rented out - many French cars on site. Doubt we would return as we were not comfortable with the size and product offer

Well organised site

We stayed here for a week in mid-May to meet our son who flew into Barcelona airport to join us. The site location was ideal for this - he was able to take a bus from the airport to the bus station in the nearby town of Vilanova del Getru,and then travel on the local bus to the site, in the main summer holidays the bus apparently also stops off at the campsite at the weekends. We were very happy with our pitch, as we'd pre-booked we were allocated one in a quiet area of the site, very close to a large toilet block. Some pitches around us were a little small for large outfits but long-term campers are probably given a larger one in a dedicated area. The toilets were very clean and modern, the pools were large and had lots of loungers and umbrellas - though the umbrellas by the restaurant were temporarily out of use as the grass was being tended to. We had a couple of really nice meals in the restaurant, the featured menu was very reasonable for 3 courses. The supermarket was one of the best we'd seen on a campsite - ideal if you forget something, though a bit more expensive than the town shops. We were able to take the bus into Barcelona from outside the site and also one to the local town of Vilanova del Getru - which was a very nice place with a large beach, a pedestrianised shopping street and large morning market. The site was fairly busy but we could imagine it would be overflowing in the main summer holidays, there were lots of static caravans and cabins, some owned by companies like Eurocamp. We were pleasantly surprised by this site, yes it is very big but well-organised and well-kept.
