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.
Please don't be put off this site by the proximity to the motorway and the approach through some commercial premises. When you arrive at the site you will be pleasantly surprised. We agree totally with previous reviews about lack of motorway noise and the older, but perfectly clean and in good working order sanitary block. In fact we felt in luxury after touring France to find we had loo paper AND a toilet seat!
The touring part of the site is compact and as previously mentioned some pitches are tight and we needed to park our car away from the caravan. However, the site has a lovely atmosphere, the owners are very pleasant and helpful and although the bar etc wasn't open when we visited in May, the terrace area looked like a great place to eat, drink and socialise.
Beautiful Sestri Levante seafront is only a couple of miles away and well worth a visit along with many other beauty spots in the area.
As we approached from the Autostrada we wondered what we letting ourselves in for and then we entered an oasis of friendliness and cleanliness. Before I could get near the mover the owner had pushed the caravan into the exact position on the pitch. Facilities were spotless with lots of hot water. WiFi worked. Local information readily available. The large free car park in the small town was convenient for promenade and shops, including a Coop supermarket. All in all we had a very pleasant stay.
We were amazed that this camp site, literally just adjacent to the motorway off-ramp (with its sound deadening fencing), was SOO quiet, very little motorway noise at all! We were in the main lower camping area which has a very narrow access road for a large caravan to pass the washing facilities but fortunately we have a motor mover so we were able to move our caravan into a tight space on this sloping terraced site and get it back out again after 2 more vans had moved in close by when it was time to leave. A few pitches were allowed to leave their cars on site, most had to park elsewhere, some off site. Wifi was constrained to about a 2 hour period in the morning and again in the evening but it was nevertheless most welcome. Cinque Terra is an amazingly beautiful part of Italy which gets lots of tourist interest and we eventually found somewhere to park legally for the day near the station so that we could take the train to see the sights. Overall a most enjoyable stay, thank you.
This site is excellent and it is hard to think of anything other than compliments. The showers were always hot and not on a timer. The reception, bar and restaurant had a fabulous atmosphere. Wifi is free. The coffee is good and cheap. The site has a lovely, friendly, international feel and because Danilo and his wife have created such a pleasant ambiance everyone gets on. Even the guests in the fixed pitches spoke to people in tourers which is rare. Danilo works incredibly hard at making everyone welcome and was extremely helpful with local info - even bringing us train times when we said we were going to Cinque terre. The town of Sestri and the promenade are beautiful. We were booked for 1 week and stayed 12 nights and for the 1st time we were truly sorry to be leaving a site.
Lovely site with very helpful owner.
Would highly recommend it. We had serviced caravan pitch with own water supply. Small shop, restaurant and bar on site. Very peaceful and yet handy for town and train station. Sestri Levante is very attractive town. Cinque Terre only a rail journey away.
Very friendly and helpful owners who made you very welcome. Excellent advise and help to see all tourist attractions of the area and Cinque Terre. Excellent food at restuarant. Great position just off A12 motorway, handy for motorhomes and caravans for easy access to Cinque Terre region. Easy train and boat access to all tourist attractions. Highly recommended!
We first stayed for 3 days and were made very welcome by the camp manager. He is totally committed to making sure your comfort is assured and the camp site is kept spotlessly clean. The restaurant is excellent and serves very good food at reasonable prices. We took the opportunity to use local transport to visit Genova and were taken to the train station by our host who also offered to pick us up if we required it so this made a good day even better. The first time we stayed we were up the top of the hill, and even though the toilet block was a little dated it was kept very clean and we had no problems. The second time we stayed we were in the main camp and again thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I would recommend this camp to anyone who wanted peace and quiet with good facilities.
