The many good reviews received for this Campsite are not wrong. Set halfway up a deep valley on the road to Pal village, it has a backdrop of beautiful pine covered mountainsides, and the constant sound of the nearby stream torrent that runs by the side of the camp.
It has 3 different accommodation zones: A large block with 16 apartments, 8 log cabins and a campsite field for 30 or more caravans, campers and tents.
Running up and down the valley is their 18 hole pitch & putt golf course. You need to have a licence to play.
The owners Mariebelle and her brother and their family are very friendly, she speaks Catalan, Spanish, French and passable English; and is more than willing to help out in any way and are greatly appreciated by visitors.
Visitors to the Park are mainly from Spain and France; but you often encounter other europeans like Brits, Dutch, Swedes and Germans. It is not on the "through road" from France to Spain; so will involve a bit (30mins) detour off the main road if you are passing: it is worth the trip up the North Valley.
There is a 25 metre long swimming pool. It has a baby pool built into one corner. The water temperature has been raised since the last season 2015 by the owner. It is still a little bit brisk for adults, but the kids love it.
In the colder weather sliding doors close off the pool, and in the summer these corrugated plastic doors are all opened up to allow the warmer air in. There is a grassy area to one side, and on the bar-side paving where people can lounge on sunbeds. Note that the heated pool does not open until the middle / end of May.
There is a tunnel from beside the side of the pool complex under the restaurant so you can get from the Sauna/Turkish Bath/Jaccuzi areas & the main apartment block to the pool without going outside.
Xixerella parc is up a "dead end" valley in Andorra - it is not really a through road - although in the summer you can exit Andorra via the Port de Cabus into a valley in Spain - 4x4 daytime only.
It is recommended that you have a car. Both for the Xixerella camping, and for Andorra in general.
There is an occasional bus service (4 times a day) to La Massana, and it is also possible to hitchhike in Andorra.
When you come up from the main France to Spain road via La Massana (the normal route) continue up towards Pal ski station (signposted everywhere). At the Erts roundabout you turn left and continue for about 1km.
You can't miss the Campsite as there is big yellow arch with the name on it on the left, just as you enter the Xixerella urbanisation. It is all lit up, and has a big christmas tree with lights in the winter.
If you do miss the turn, continue on for about 100m and on the right on the road bend there is turning spot (big enough for a Winnebago) - take this or you will find it hard to turn around later as the road is very fast, with bends all the way to Pal village - hard if not impossible to turn with a campervan or caravan.
There are mountain paths around Xixerella which are fantastic for hikers. In the winter you can put on crampons onto your boots and still go for it. The golf course is restricted to players only.
The main road CG2 (National Highway 2) has no pavements and as such is a bit risky as drivers do tend to belt up and down the valley - overtaking dangerously.
You do see people walking and road skiing but is it positively dangerous when there is snow/ice on the road. If you want to walk then better to go down to closer to La Massana where there are many level walks and sidewalks on the road all the way up to Ordino, or down to La Vella.
There are 2 reception desks; one by the raising-level gate for the Campsite, a little hut, and another in the appartments block.
During the summer season the hut normally has someone inside and they will provide information and service as required. The indoor one is usually manned in winter, and there is kitchen is right behind where you can normally get some attention, or in the bar/restaurant on the site.
The out-of-hours numbers are: (376) 346552 & (376) 738613
Smoking is permitted throughout the campsite - outside. There is a terrace outside the Restaurant where it is permitted to smoke.
For those with very young children it should be noted there is no fence on part of the perimeter with the fast flowing river stream bordering the camp - there is a fence by the playground and minigolf, so kids will be corralled in there.
If it snows or is icy you will need snow tyres or chains - the police always stop vehicles leaving La Massana heading north and check every one - if there has been snowfall.
The camp is at 1500m and it possible to get heavy dumps of snow > 0.5m in a night: so be prepared! The main CG2 is a national highway and is therefore kept open by government snow ploughs and the campsite itself has a JCB digger for clearing paths.
There is a firepoint with fire extinguisher near the final set of Cabins servicing the campsite; and all the buildings comply with Andorra regulations and have extinguishers in the corridors/rooms.
People come here for mainly skiing, fishing, walking/hiking, mountain-biking. Kids will love the nature of this place; there are lots of walks through the forests, and you can access the river from the campsite.
In the summer there is climbing activities nearby and the camp is well kitted out for fun with the pool and grassy areas. It is quite flat for biking around the camp.
There are communal BBQ areas; by the Golf clubhouse and behind the main building, and also smaller BBQs shared between each pair of Cabins. This is very popular in Andorra and a great way to meet other people and families.
There is a nine hole mini golf course within the camp (nothing to do with pitch and putt course). You get the clubs from the outdoor reception. It is looking a little weather-worn now, the surfaces are uneven and the balls rolls strangely. There aren't really any fancy obstacles - but OK for little children to putt around.
These are from Norway. You have a covered terrace with each one, and kitchen and living room. Some have bedroom on ground floor, others have a narrow staircase/stepladder to climb to another room space above. Very warm and cosy, they even smell nice. You can park outside each one, and they share a BBQ barbeque with the neighbouring cabin - great to get chatting to other travellers.
In the apartments and cabins there are private toilets in each one. Clean and warm.
In the campsite restaurant there are toilets at the back; these can get a little cold. The main campsite has a toilet/shower/washing block with male and female facilities. This is clean and warm.
The campsite block also has a large barn-type storage area where they hangup drying tobacco leaves over the winter; tobacco is one of Andorra's main crops - but they don't use the tobacco in any cigarettes or pipes; they get paid for producing it, so they can sell other tobaccos in their duty-free stores. One of the many quirks of this little country.
Next to the restaurant and opened on request you can get staples such as tinned products and other basic essentials. Fresh bread in the mornings. For a bigger supermarket with better selection stop in La Massana on the way up or go up to Arinsal, both of these have bigger supermarkets. Campers might prefer Arinsal as the big ski cark parks are easier to maneuver around in.
This campsite is large enough to take your biggest winnebago. For cars there is outside parking, and indoor (useful in peak-snowfall periods).
The campsite hosts golf tournaments; during these periods other parking areas are utilised e.g. an area by the roadside.
There are no bumps or ruts that would prevent low sprung sports cars entering the outside car park, and the indoor parking has a smooth ramp. There are speed bumps further into the camp.

Owned by Francis; who also owns Moli de Fanals which one of the most respected "Borda" (typical Andorran food) Restaurants, this place serves good food. It is well presented, in a comfortable venue - expect to pay a little more for the privilege.
This is a small restaurant - this means you get lots of attention from the staff (Kaisha from Poland speaks English and Russian), and they can give you a higher level of service than a large place.
Meats are cooked on the wood fired grill and this imparts a superb flavour.
The Prat Gran ("Big field") is popular restaurant and bar in a park in La Massana. Super sunny and sheltered spot, with indoor and nearby play areas suitable for smaller kids. Also known as "Prat de Collet" - which the name of the field/meadow where it is situated.
The park is great for kids bikes, and there are 2 playground with various swings, climbing frames and sandpits. High walled tennis court for bigger kids.
Standard menu is good local cuisine - try go to in the week - around 10 euro for a meal excluding drinks. Because on the weekends its the same menu - just double the price! Still a great family place with lots of bustle and action.
The cable car runs from the centre of La Massana (1300m) to the Pal Station (2050m)
There is a machine where you can buy standard ski passes (forfets) next to the counters. No one seemed to be using them, even though there was a big queue. You can't get any discounts from the machine.
Under the same ownership as the Palarine Hotel (in Erts), the Hunters Bar and Grill is part of the mainstay of the English-speaking bars in Arinsal.
Pool table, widescreen TVs, fun staff and relaxed atmosphere.
