Piccolo Camping E Maieu **

General information
Guide price €29.50

In the province of Alessandria, in the North Italian Piëmont region, you will find Piccolo Camping E Maieu (also referred to as Emaieu). It is a small-scale nature camping site, quietly situated, even a tad in the middle of nowhere. You can really unwind in the green, hilly surrounds or on the other hand indulge yourself in all kinds of sports activities. You are in the Tortonese region, where the foothills of the Ligurian Apennines dominate the landscape.

Camping in nature

E Maieu is a terraced camping site situated amidst nature in the hilly countryside, within walking distance of the village of Garbagna. Small-scale is the key word which describes this quiet camping site. Nice to know: the owner, Fausto Moressa, is also the postman. E Maieu is predominantly a camping site for campers with tents. There are spacious and less spacious pitches. There are also a few apartments available for rent, suitable for up to two persons. E Maieu has good sanitary facilities, both in the main building and lower down on the camping site.

Remarkably, some 90% of the guests are Dutch and Belgian, usually seekers of peace and quiet and nature lovers. There is not a lot of choice in terms of amenities. However, there is a small swimming pool (for a fee). You can go to Garbagna for a meal or for shopping.

Heading out

The area is eminently suitable for sporty activities. From the camping site you can take lovely hiking and cycling trips. You can already find some interesting routes from the camping website. Nice for cycling fans: in the village of Castellania, only 6 km from the camping site, you will find the birth house (now a museum) of the legendary cycling champion Fausto Coppi.

No hicieron cheking, ni identificaron a los usuarios , no dieron factura y caro para la situación y categoría del camping. Ademas poco preparado para autocaravanas de mas de 7 metros, donde tuvimos que salir marcha atrás durante un buen recorrido por no poder dar la vuelta.

Reaction from the campsite November 25, 2015

Dear Ricardo
I am very sorry if you didn\'t like your stay here, but probabily happen because you arrived later in the evening, the office was closed and I was alone and very tired. But you must know, in my camping guests can arrived and enter all the night even if I am tired, even if the office is closed. So, sorry if I take care more to my guests than the burocrazia.

Very basic site needs a lot of attention to tidiness although the main block of toilets and showers were clean the smaller blocks were not cleaned in the two nights we were there the saving grace for this site is the lovely friendly village and surrounding area

The site is ok (very rustic) but poorly maintained. The pitch we had was 3 amp (only the newer pitches are more), the water supply was basic, the electrical sockets poorly maintained, the fire appliances (where provided to the fire point) unsafe and no refuse disposal on site. The most expensive and by far (cash only and no receipt available) the worst presented site we visited in Italy - but there are not many to choose from in this area so. A little competition would probably be no bad thing. Shame as it has much potential.
