We stayed here during the early stages of Euro2016 and were treated to a fair amount of Italian enthusianism as the locals watched their team on the site\'s big screen but can\'t blame them for that. Otherwise all was very peaceful.
The staff were very friendly at reception and shop which stocked a good selection of essentials. Porlezza is a 30min walk away where can be found a supermarket for other items. The site is well laid out with a large choice of pitches - the only restriction on ACSI is on the front row facing the lake. There are 5 sanitary blocks in all with various types of shower cubicles and toilets - the most modern being nearest reception, but all perfectly adequate and cleaned regularly. The low amperage supply was a problem at first so we would have liked some more juice being available.
The restaurant was staffed by the most friendly of people who provided a very wide selection of delicious food at very reasonable prices.

Lovley campsite! I will come back to this Place again! I loved the placement of the camsite just next to Lake Lugano and it was easy to take the bus to Lake Como!
The personal were very helpful and kind, the whole feeling on this campsite was homey!
The beach was small but nice and the view...outstanding!

Ein charmanter, sauberer Platz, welcher stets gehegt und gepflegt wird. Das Personal fällt durch seine Freundlichkeit und Fremdsprachenkenntnisse auf. Die sanitären Anlagen sind einfach, aber immer sehr sauber. Wir fühlten uns sehr gut aufgehoben und werden bestimmt wieder kommen.

Für uns ein günstiger, freundlicher CP mit tollem, gepflegtem See, bzw. Strand. Die Sanitäranlagen waren befriedigend plus.
Personal konnte sowohl Deutsch, als auch Englisch und kam durchaus hilfsbereit rüber.

We komen net terug van vakantie met de camper waarvan we twee nachten op de camping hebben verbracht. De camping zelf is simpel en voldoende. Je moet niet een al te grote camper hebben daar alles wel redelijk krap is. Er zijn eigenlijk maar een paar negatieve puntjes te noemen en er een ervan is de toerit naar de camping zelf en de weg ervandaan . Ik ben zelf een redelijk ervaren rijder maar ik heb toch schade gereden aan onze camper doordat de weg erheen op sommige plaatsen wel heel erg smal is en als je dan een bus of vrachtwagen als tegenligger krijgt dan moet je soms net te ver uitwijken waardoor je grote kans hebt dat je iets raakt. De camping zelf staat vol Nederlanders in vakantie stemming dus dat zit wel goed. De omgeving maakt alles wel goed, het meer is mooier als het Garda meer en stukken helderder. Eten is niet duur en lekker. Animatie is in orde. Wij hadden een plek waar ik voor het eerst gewoon haringen in de grond kon slaan. Mijn vrouw durft er niet meer heen, maar ik zou er volgend jaar wel weer heen gaan. Prijs was redelijk aan de dure kant. Dit valt nog duurder uit omdat ik die schade nog moet repareren... Personeel was erg vriendelijk en kende de Nederlandse taal. Douches waren niet altijd warm. Wc was ouderwets met een wc rol onder de arm. Sanitair was redelijk modern.

Super nett gelegener, sehr ruhiger Campingplatz. Direkt am See. Kurzer Weg in die Stadt. Herliche Kulisse durch die umliegenden Berge. Camping selber sehr sauber, Personal extrem freundlich.

A very pleasant location on the lakeshore, with stunning views. Pitches are on the small side (not a problem for me, but people with larger tents or caravans might feel cramped). The only significant minus point was loud amplified music, both from the camp\'s own sound stage and (I presume) from one of the other camp-sites in the village, going on well after midnight. (I was there at a weekend; I suspect it may be quieter mid-week.)

Very nice and quite campsite.The lake is very beatiful and clean. Surroundings are interesting: Lugano and Suisse, Como\'s Lake and many mountains for walk. The campsite is very ordered and the management is ok. Many shadow and green. The price is OK. Very nice camp. :)

Mary and I stayed for 4 nights Sept. 13 (had to enter a 2014 date to place review as 2013 was not an option) . If we did not have a schedule to keep to we would have stayed much longer. The staff were excellent and the pitch superb. Right on the lakeside with the mountains rising up on either side. A breathtaking view. All was peaceful, tranquil and oohh so relaxing. Our route into Switzerland from Darna was easy with no waits/traffic queues at all.
A beautiful place to relax and enjoy the majesty of the area. Of the 9 campsite on our Alps tour this was tops.
