The campsite is at the back of the town and it is a short 15 minute cycle down to the beaches or there is a bus stop close by. The train station is 10 minutes away and has a direct route the the Cinque Terre - a 30 minute journey away.
The campsite and facilities are kept very clean and tidy, plenty of hot water with the added bonus of sinks on some pitches. Following the road signs the site is easy to find - as the advice says, don\'t use sat nav as there is a very low bridge to contend with.
The site is very close to the motorway but the noise was not an issue.
The staff were helpful and spoke good English.
We would definitely return here.

Wonderful stay, loved it all. Danilo, the Camping Manager is gorgeous, such a friendly host. The site is beautiful, and we fell in love with the area. Will come back next year for sure. Loved it all. Thank you Danilo, and we loved your pizzas too!

I was so disappointed by this site having read previous reviews and had rejected others to come here. It is basic! The owners were only around for a short period each day so no chance to find out if they were friendly. In fact had to make sure we caught them to pay and retrieve our ACSI card. The pitch was adequate but no views - other than of the toilet block. Facilities were clean but nowhere to put things in the showers without getting wet. Contrary to other reviews you could hear the motorway although not obtrusive. Good point was the price - no extra for tourist tax.

I was slightly dubious of using this site and this was increased when I got there going under motorway bridges and through some commercial sites but when I arrived and was greeted so warmly by the owner I felt a lot happier. During my 3 week trip this year I did stay at bigger, grander sites with excellent views but this site won my heart and will definitely be visited again. The site is mainly made up of permanent caravans and there were very few vacancies even in late May so I was pleased to ring up the day before to be told if I got there by 12 there would be a place for me. The pitches are large and gravelled although you do feel packed in it is very popular. The advantage of this site is the closeness to Sestri Lavante and the nearby coast which is outstanding and those using the site must take some boat cruises up the coast, tickets being sold in reception with the owner\'s father driving you to the dock for a very minimal charge. The toilets are rather old but were spotlessly clean and the restaurant open then at the weekend only was very popular and always full. One word of warning DO NOT follow the directions of your Sat Nav as I lost my TV aerial going under a very low bridge. The ACSI book points this out and tells you to follow the campsite signs, and expensive lesson learnt by me

This site should be described as rustic but charming. It was the busiest site we have been to out of season and this is because it\'s 2km walk to the train station and from there you can get to Santa margherita to go to portofino or the other way the cinque terre. It is an odd route to get to it and you wonder where you are going and consider turning round as you pass under the dark motorway underpass but keep going and the site is lovely. Good clean sanitary facilities, showers with no timers.. Our first in 37 days of travelling! Would recommend to visit this coast line by train. Owner very helpful.

We are two Chinese Canadians just finished 40 days tent camping trip around Europe. What a trip and now we looked back at all the campgrounds we stayed... wow... none of them are the same! Very few campgrounds we stayed for more than one night; Berlin, Paris, Rome, Venice, Praha, for obvious reason. But, this Fossa Lupara we stayed for two nights :) The place isn\'t big but it\'s so friendly, well laid out and relaxing. WiFi is free, water hot and in huge volume. Pitches are shaded, flat and in fine gravels. We arrived late at 10pm and Danilo showed up before I hang up the phone literally. The young man speaks fluent English and learnt the Chinese greetings in 20 seconds. He even helped me pay for a Italian parking ticket :)

Come to see Danilo !!!

Although on first appearance pitches looked cramped the owner was extremely helpful in locating a good sized pitch for us. He pointed out the local attractions and supplied us with a street map and the walking route to Sestri Levante. We stayed at the end of the season so we cannot comment on the food and drink as both the restaurant and the shop had closed for the winter. If we return to this area we would stay here again. The location is ideal for touring this area and the walk to Sestri Levante is fairly easy and level - took about 40 minutes at a leisurely pace.

Basic site but offers enough to make it a good base for accessing local area. Staff very helpful. Toilets & showers clean & useable. Restaurant offers decent food. 10 mins walk to train station to get to Cinque Terre/ Genova. Easy bicycle to the town & harbour. Free wifi at reception area but it was difficult to access.

A well located campsite, a short distance (2km) from Sestri Levante, lovely town by the sea, well worth a visit. Campsite has well marked pitches, ours came with water on pitch and electrics nearby. The toilet/shower block are older but work very well, best shower in Italy so far. No push button on shower, plenty of hot water with a very good strong flow. Mix of English and French footplate toilets. Entrance road into site quite tight but manageable. The owner is very helpful giving a lot of tourist advice on where to visit. The whole site is very compact but if you want a campsite in this area this one is definitely worth a visit.

The owners were very proud of their spot and made every effort to make it work. Good meals, great advice on local ideas and suggestions. Quiet in spite of close to motorway (great /effective sound barriers) Good train or bus connections for visiting adjacent areas, We would recommend and will return.
Thanks. Dr George.
