NW Spanish Coast

Going to be travelling around the NW Coast on the way into Portugal at the end of the month.

Need recommendations for Aires/Campsites from the French border round to the Portugese border.

Personal Aire
Camping Ribasadella Asturias. Stayed there a few years ago but within walking distance of the town. Pleasant location too.

hya Richard - try Cudillero harbour parking 43.565902, -6.151067, no services but loads of room and lovely spot, nice little village and some good fish restuarants. If you're lucky you may catch the small fishing boats coming in and buy direct.

cheers

Thanks for those two recommendations.

What about around the French border, San SebastiŠn and Bilbao?

Also the far west in Galicia, around the Coruna area?

Is that some exotic location I have yet to discover ???


Spanish perhaps, clunk clunk clunk clunk (Thats the sound of a pedant walking away to hide under his stone )

Yes you ARE right, there's always one smart @rse about

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

Camping Zarautz in town of same name is nice, on top of cliff overlooking the beach and town. Between San Senastian and Bilbao.

Hi Richard, Cudillero is definitely worth a visit.

We love the NW of Spain. San Vicente de la Barquera is good as well. Good campsite not too far away. Playa de Oyambre, it may be in the ACSI book very friendly with a good bar and restaurant the last time we were there.

Fantastic cave to visit in the area plus another computer reconstructed cave system with prehistoric wall paintings.

Be sure to go to Potes in the Picos de Europa and a fairly short trip to Feunte De where we took the cable car up above the snow line in May when we were there. A few ACSI sites in the Potes area.

Edit. Here's a link to a site review I posted a couple of years ago with info about the caves. https://www.motorhomefacts.com/module...ults&csid=5097

Cabarseno Nature Park (south of Santander) has an aire (it was free when we used it last year in July). You park up next to a huge lake and can get a sneak peak of some of the animals over the perimeter fence. Free services as well and only a few minutes off the main coastal road. I thought that the park was a bit expensive but I am renown for being a tight wad.

Still free. We spent about 6 weeks in the North of Spain over the summer. Still in Spain at the moment and accessing internet from a bar so I don't have details of everywhere we went, but we found some fantastic places to stay. If you want to pm me I will try to dig up the names and GPS
