Situated in the middle of nowhere under pine trees. In May, with no pool or bar or restaurant open, it seemed a bit expensive. There are no marked pitches, just random un-level ground. However we could just see the top of Etna and the road up from there to Etna is quite spectacular and therefore it is a handy location. Had to pay extra for coin operated hot showers, but had to run across the room to put more in, if a longer shower is needed. Very antiquated facilities.

Struttura ricettiva discreta, migliorando i servizi igienici sarebbe quasi ottima. Per il resto tutto nella norma per il tipo di struttura

Il campeggio è situato in una splendida pineta: la struttura dei servizi centrata all\'area del campeggio è comoda per la sua fruizione, i servizi lasciano molto a desiderare per pulizia e per mancanza di manutenzione.
Il paese di Nicolosi è raggiungibile a piedi percorrendo la strada statale per un paio di km. Il camping lo consiglio per il posto, ma lo eviterei per i servizi specialmente se si campeggia in tenda. Io e mia moglie eravamo in camper ed abbiamo usato i servizi del mezzo.

Guter Platz um den Ätna zu erkunden. Viele Bäume, viel Schatten, gute Luft, klarer Blick auf den Ätna. Kleine Bar, keine Möglichkeit vor Ort zu essen, Sanitär in Ordnung, aber wer warm duschen will muss erzahlen. Wenn man von der Küste kommt ist hier der ideale Ort, um abzukühlen. Personal freundlich und hilfsbereit. Strom und Wasser am Stellplatz.

As motorhome dwellers for a couple of nights we thought the accommodation was adequate. The pitches weren\'t structured, just a reasonably flat area between a field of trees. It was quiet when we were there. Only two other motor homes; quite a number of tenters.

Showers were one euro and lasted five minutes. Can\'t remember whether you could have a free cold shower or not.

There is a restaurant, the food is pleasant without being great. Pasta comes aplenty!

The pool looked nice though we didn\'t really get a chance to use it. It was very clean and inviting though.

We asked about info on etna but all we got back was a guided tour up to etna, and only one at that. We weren\'t sure whether it was lost in translation or whether they were pushing only certain information as we know there are MANY tours being offered. We also asked about the daily bus service up to etna but didn\'t get much out of that, once again info about the one tour. In the end we talked to a couple of other people who could speak English and they gave us valuable info. Forget the bus and drive the motorhome up to etna itself! The roads are great and there is a huge parking lot! If we knew that we would have done that instead. You can also find out more about tours etc when you are up there.

Camping there was not bad though, on the contrary it was pleasant. We got to do the walk up Mount Rossi which runs up behind the campsite, and nicolosi itself is not a bad little town. Just wish we knew we could easily drive up to Etna in our motorhome, and also park there!

Leider ist dies der einzige CP in der Nähe des Ätnas. In unserer Reisezeit hat nichts mehr funktioniert. Kein Wasser, kein Strom und alles verdreckt. Warum wird nicht einfach über den Winter zugesperrt, dann sucht man sich eine andere Übernachtungsmöglkichkeit. Aber dafür auch noch Geld zu verlangen ist unverschämt.

Nous avons séjourné dans un bungalow sur ce terrain de camping.
L'accueil, la propreté, l'état des installations, les équipements, l'environnement étaient de très mauvaise qualité et ne correspondaient pas du tout au descriptif consulté.
Obtenir une facture à notre départ a été très difficile...
Nous possèdons des photos pour étayer nos propos.
A proscrire absolument

Derzeit einziger Campingplatz in unmittelbarer Nähe des Ätna. Sehr freundlicher Platzwart, der sehr besorgt um uns war. Leider keine Einkaufsmöglichkeit, auch kein Brot.
