This is a real gem of a site, set amongst the trees it offers some sun and shade at various times of the day. We found the owner really pleasant and the surrounding area with all the cycle paths a delight. The swimming pool is a lovely addition to the site. Originally intended as a stopover site we stayed 4 days and would have stayed more if time had allowed. Locarno is just a short drive or a longer cycle away and is picture perfect. Will definately return there is nothing here not to like.

This is a good location close to Lake Maggiore. Some of the pitches are on the small side or our 7m tent. We did a beautiful drive into the mountains as the weather was not great one day. Through Ascona, Santa Maria Maggiore to Domodossola and then down the motorway and back along the Lake (by which time the sun was out). The road goes right along the lakeside and you can stop for lunch at beautiful Cannobio. Go through the town and there is a car park on the right suitable for vans and car with top boxes. Only a short walk from the end of the promenade. The campsite had a good sized pool and good toilet facilities. The restaurant was popular but we did not try it. The owners were German and helpful but a little unfriendly. I did not get a smile out of them. Down the road in the supermarket everything is in Italian. Euros can be used but you will get the change in Swiss Francs. We managed to spend ours on coffees on the motorway. Do not forget to buy your vignette.

Rustig gelegen camping met vriendelijke ontvangst. Camping ligt in een soort van bos. Je hoort de vogels fluiten (inclusief de koekoek), er is veel schaduw en de koetjes lopen aan de overkant. Maar er is hierdoor ook erg weinig gras en bij regen wordt het snel erg modderig en worden je spullen erg smerig. Sanitair is OK, maar ook niet meer dan dat. Het heeft een beetje het luxeniveau van een sportkleedkamer. Het is schoon, douches zijn ruim. Toiletten zijn voorzien van toiletpapier en zeep om je handen te wassen. Het duurt lang voordat het water in de douches warm is en daarna schommelt de temperatuur nogal van bijna koud tot gloeiendheet. Het grootste minpunt zijn de plaatsen om je te wassen. Dit zijn lange bakken met kranen erboven, nauwelijks ruimte om een toilettas neer te kunnen zetten, handdoek en kleding kun je aan een veel te klein haakje bij de toiletten achter je ophangen in de hoop dat het er niet afvalt. En als je af gaat wassen, was je jezelf ook deels af... Enorme kranen die wel een meter boven de spoelbak zitten, zonder flink spatten afwassen is nagenoeg onmogelijk. Het restaurant op de camping is uitstekend. Gezellig, goed eten met een ruime keus op de kaart en niet te duur. Wifi op de camping is gratis en redelijk goed. Dekking is prima, snelheid in orde voor standaard browsen en af en toe een nieuwsfilmpje kijken. Het dorp Cugnasco ligt op loopafstand, er zijn volop wandelmogelijkheden en de camping ligt aan het fietspad van Locarno naar Bellinzona (beide op ongeveer 11 km afstand). Winkels als een Coop, Lidl en Aldi, liggen allemaal redelijk dichtbij. Omdat ik de camping een nogal modderige bedoening vond met matig sanitair, zou ik de volgende keer een andere camping opzoeken in deze streek.

Besitzer war unfreundlich. GPS positionen haben beinuns nicht gestummen und uns auf den Fussballplatz aus der anderen Seite vom Fluss navigiert. Kein Brot in der Offsaison resp. nur auf Vorbestellung. Sanitär sauber.

Wir haben den Platz als Zwischenübernachtung genutzt. Wir riefen an und fragten die Rezeptionsöffnungszeit (21:00h) an und teilten mit, dass wir im Stau stehen. Kurz vor an 21.00h erneutes Telefonat und wir konnten um 22:15h noch einchecken. Der Platzwart rief uns sogar zurück. Äußerst aufmerksam.
Die Sanitäranlagen waren sehr gepflegt.
Wir werden den Platz auf jeden Fall auch mal für ein paar Tage anfahren, da die Umgebung fantastisch ist und der Preis mit ACSI in der Schweiz ein absolutes Schnäppchen ist.

Wir haben den Platz als Durchreisecamping nach Elba ausgewählt. Die sanitären Einrichtungen sind sehr gut. Der Platz sehr ruhig. Durch die ACSI -Karte ist der Platz für Schweizer Verhältnisse preiswert.

Camping bezocht voor één overnachting, de ontvangst was niet erg vriendelijk, de eigenaar was afstandelijk en ongeinteresseerd.
Je kunt onder de € 100,= niet betalen met een bankpas. (en dat in 2014)
De plaatsen zijn goed en vlak en het sanitair is goed en schoon.
Camping heeft veel vaste staanders waardoor je niet het gevoel hebt op een camping te staan.

Wir waren nur auf der Durchreise für 1 Nacht und mit ACSI. Trotzdem wurden wir freundlich und zuvorkommend empfangen. Sehr gutes Sänitär und Restaurant. Empfelenswert auch mit Hund. Wir kommen gerne wieder einmal für längere Zeit.

Schöner CP. Für Zwischenübernachtung Richtung Süden umständlich anzufahren. Sonst gut. Kommen gerne wieder.
