Campsite Benista ****

General information
Guide price €36.40

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.

Show more

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.

Napoleon

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.

Camping welke nog volledig niet klaar is, veel is verouderd en slecht onderhouden, gebouwen zijn vies. Camping plekken zijn kaal. In een ander gedeelte waren ze de 1m hoge begroeiing aan het weghalen om klaar te zijn voor 1 augustus denk ik. Al met al geen frisse camping. Er moet echt een grote schoonmaak en groot onderhoud tegen aan dan wordt het nog wat. Ik heb het idee dat 1 personeelslid alles mag regelen en dat de campingeigenaren het er maar op z’n Frans bij laten hangen.

Weinig sanitaire voorzieningen aanwezig en deze worden maar 1x per dag schoongemaakt. Mooie schaduwrijke plekken aanwezig. Mooie zandstranden nabij de camping met gratis parkeren vlakbij het strand. Camping heeft redelijk grote plekken met begroeiing tussen de plekken. Bna geen animatie, er waren een paar mensen aan het bewegen, maar voor kinderen eigenlijk niets.

de bomen op de camping zijn behoorlijk gesnoeid, waardoor het veel opener is geworden met toch voldoende schaduw. het sanitairgebouw is oud, maar men is bezig om het sanitair zelf te vernieuwen. Kortom: de camping is behoorlijk vetrbeterd. het is een prima camping om b.v. Ajaccio te bezoeken. De omgeving, zoals de Gorge's du Prunelli, is ook schitterend.

Eind mei slechts 1 verouderd toiletgebouw open (2 douches) met amper warm water. Lozen van chemisch toilet vraagt om ziektes, zo smerig! Heel veel schaduwplaatsen met hoge bomen, sateliet ontvangst daardoor heel moeilijk. Waar de 4 sterrenbeoordeling voor deze camping vandaan komt is ons een waar raadsel, er zijn heel wat betere camping met een mindere beoordeling.

Nette camping met afgebakende plaatsen door middel van hegjes. Net sanitair. Dame aan receptie kon zelfs een beetje Nederlands. Op fietsafstand van centrum Porticcio.

De camping hadden we uitgekozen omdat deze vlak bij de stad Ajaccio ligt en wij die stad een paar dagen gingen bezoeken. Dat deze camping 4 sterren heeft verbaasde ons zeer. Het sanitair was niet schoon. En tijdens het afwassen stonden we altijd in een vuile plas water voor de afwasbak.
Het warme water van de douches was erg lauw.

De vele plaatsen waren aan de kleine kant, er was een oud dicht sanitairgebouw en voor het andere sanitair een stuk lopen (ligt aan de plaats). Eind juni leek het zo nu en dan wel dicht vwb restaurant en zwembad. Er werd dan te laat omgeroepen dat het restaurant open was, terwijl je aan het eten was. Duidelijk geen 4 sterren waard.

Wij vonden een plekje helemaal achterin. Daar was het nog licht. De overige plaatsen zijn voor het voorseizoen erg donker. Sanitair erg verouderd. Weinig warm water.

De camping verdient zeker geen 4 sterren.
Geeft een heel verwaarloosde indruk. Gras op sommige staanplaatsen ongeveer 50 à 60 cm hoog. Het was misschien nog vroeg op seizoen, dus zwembad en restauant niet open (half mei). Sanitair HEEL VIES. Hebben er dus geen gebruik van gemaakt.

Het sanitair was erg vies en de camping was zeker geen 4 sterren waard, de plaatsen waren wel mooi in het bos, maar men was net met het onderhoud begonnen, dus overal lag nog afval. 2 sterren is eigenlijk nog teveel.
