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.
Ok for an overnight stop as site is just off the motorway. Pitch was a good size. Facilities are basic but clean. The advertised restaurant is only open on weekends in early season.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
