Campsite Benista ****

General information

from 6 reviews Write review

The quiet green family campground Benista in the south of Corsica appears a bit dated, but the simple facilities are sufficient for a stay. The nice thing about this campground is that each campsite is different. The sites are about 100 m2 and partially separated by hedges. The many trees on the site ensure that most campsites have some shade.

The beach of Porticcio is 1.8 km away, about a 10 minute drive from the campground. There is a small supermarket and a few other shops nearby. There are studios and bungalows to rent on the campground. Guests come here for the beautiful, broad white sandy beaches in the area, and the many sporty activities.

Barbecuing together

There is a small but lovely swimming pool (170 m2) on the campground, which borders the river. There is a sports field and a little playground on site. Twice a week in the high season there is an activity program in French and English for the children. For young people from 13 through 18 years of age and for adults, there are also activities planned, such as a communal barbecue. There are regular competitions in ping pong, volleyball, badminton, jeu de boules and tennis.

Many sports

You can play tennis and mini golf for a fee. In the surrounding area there are plenty of options for water skiing, canoeing, diving, sailing, parasailing, horseback riding and there is a disco and a cinema in the area. You can spot wild boar on your walks.


You can travel by boat from the port of Porticcio to Ajaccio. Here there is a market every evening with local products. Also visit the birthplace of Napoleon or the Lac de Tolla reservoir.

Mr. Brard, on this campsite in August 2018


Travelling party: Couple

Pas digne d un 4 étoiles. Manque sérieusement d entretien au niveau des sanitaires, des infrastructures et des emplacements. Pas de surveillance la nuit, chacun fait du bruit comme bon lui semble après 23h30.

D'AGOSTINO, on this campsite in May 2018


Travelling party: Seniors

Le camping le Benista se prétend un camping 4 étoiles. Dans UN passé très lointain peut-être. Aujourd\\\'hui il correspond à un camping municipal ou 2 étoiles.
Les allées sont très étroites et les camping-cars et les caravanes circulent difficilement.
Les emplacements sans points d\\\'eau.
Les sanitaires sans savon.
Pas de lavabos individuels.
Piscine verte après 3 semaines d\\\'ouverture du camping.
Pas de supérette.
Pas de salle de gym.
Pas d\\\'animations.
Fuites d\\\'eau dans les sanitaires.
Pas de lumière dans les toilettes des hommes.
Pas de paiement par carte bancaire.
Camping sans entretien en délabrement.
A éviter

Reaction from the campsite July 5, 2019

Merci d\\\\avoir pris le temps de laisser un avis, malgré une subjectivité importante.

Votre emplacement disposait de l\'eau.

Les allées font plus de trois mètres de large, nous accueillons régulièrement des cars, Je pense qu\\\'en mai vous aviez plus que le choix de l\'emplacement et donc de choisir en fonction..

Nous acceptons depuis des années la carte bancaire, le paiement en espèces à donc été à votre initiative.

L\\\'épicier, Le boulanger et l\\\'ensemble des commerçants présents à 20 mètres du camping seront sensibles au fait que vous niez leur existence.

Les animations sont toujours présentés en juillet et août comme dans de très nombreux établissements. Nous en sommes pas un village vacances. Ce n\\\'est pas la même philosophie.

Je ne pense pas que la liste à la Prévert qui est la votre soit dans les critères des étoiles.

Pour en terminer, il ne vous aura pas échapper que les conditions météo ont été particulièrement instables durant votre séjour.
