We visited in May, although unseasonably warm the swimming pool was not open. Staff were marvellous and facilities very good.
Shopping, just a short walk was a large supermarket, also a number of restaurants. I can recommend the local cafe, just along from the supermarket. Smile and Italians will become your best friends.
If your van is around the 7 metre x 3 dimension, take care when during your unit. Pitches can be a bit tight!
Arrived at this site and stayed for a week. Warm friendly welcome. The road to this campsite is narrow, if you have a large unit be careful! A tunnel making the route easier does not feature on the 2014 map nor does it appear on the latest version of Tomtom(1/9/14). The pitches are of various sizes, so you may choose a bigger pitch but it may not be near to the lake. The 3 amp supply kept tripping out, one item at a time solved this. Some pitches have 6amp but may cost extra. The campsite is near to the bus route, although Maggiore is a nice walk following the cycle route, mainly down hill. Suggest you bus back. Recommend this site.
Stayed for 8 days after visiting Grand Prix in Monza . Really warm welcome from owner and family, choose your own pitch , toilets and showers very good free if your ACSI. Site restaurant/Bar very friendly too, pizza was excellent. Entrance lane is narrow but manageable my caravan is 7.5m long . Fresh bread available at grocer/butcher just up the lane and turn right 100 metres . Location is great for visiting all the major lakes. We loved our stay
I can only echo the comments from the English couples review made in July. Very friendly, nice site, pitches and toilets. I was worried because they don't allow advance reservation bookings, but the site was no more that 60% full and it was the first week that the ACSI card could be used after the high season. We stayed in a tent so driving to the site was no problem, but I would not have liked to go with a caravan from Como, better to go via Switzerland. No shop on the campsite but a big suermarket is within easy walking distance. We used the on site restaurant which met all of our needs. Would stay again if in the area as you have easy acsess to both of the "big lakes".
This is a lovely friendly campsite in a beautiful part of Italy. The reception staff (family) are very friendly and helpful. The roads in this area are 'interesting' but TomTom Caravan gave us a good route around Lugano and through the new tunnel. I wouldn't recommend going via Como and Menagio. The last 100 yards from the main road to the campsite is quite narrow and downhill.
The site is on the small Lake Piano and between Lakes Lugano and Como. The surrounding area is beautiful and from Menagio there are boat links across Lake Como to Bellagio and other lovely towns.
