Campsite Benista ****

General information
Guide price €35.70

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.


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 standard, emplacements convenables, très ombragés, sanitaires insuffisant, entretien leger. Ne mérite pas 4 étoiles, juste correct pour une étape, route bruyante jour et nuit.

Campingcariste, douche insuffisante, vidange wc déplorable, cela se dégrade d année en année.
A revoir la conception des sanitaires !!! Il y a erreur sur le classement du camping !!!

accueil correct mais les sanitaires très archaïques pour l\\\'eau chaude vaisselle et linge il faut rester appuyer sur le bouton rouge, pas de cabinet de toilette individuel et le nettoyage fait tous les 2 ou 3 jours à coup de sceau d\\\'eau. Camping à utiliser que de passage

Les emplacements sont des parcelles avec de hautes herbes....les lavabos extérieurs sont très sales. Ce camping ne mérite pas les 4 étoiles et de plus pour 2014, son prix est passé de 16 à 18€.

je confirme ne mérite pas 4 étoiles.
wifi très cher. la piscine très belle sur la photo mais 8 ou 9 transat s pour 170 emplacements, je n\'ose pas imaginé en pleine saison. les sanitaires n\'ont pas évolués, douches surélevées et ça inonde le reste des sanitaires, 2douches homme par sanitaire c\'est juste.

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

J'ai séjourné deux jours en camping car au mois de septembre 2013 dans ce camping. Je ne comprends pas comment il peut avoir 4 étoiles, au vu de l'état des sanitaires, de l'aménagement des emplacements (manque d'éclairage), du bruit de la route, du camping qui reste ouvert la nuit sans barrière.
J'ai pris des photos des bacs à laver la vaisselle et voudrais bien pouvoir vous les adresser pour confirmer mes observations. Comment faire?
Sincèrement, il ne mérite pas les 4 étoiles, c'est de la tromperie envers la clientèle.
