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 campsite, 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 campsite 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 campsite. Nice to know: the owner, Fausto Moressa, is also the postman. E Maieu is predominantly a campsite 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 campsite.

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 campsite 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 campsite, you will find the birth house (now a museum) of the legendary cycling champion Fausto Coppi.

A place to relax and unwind. in a campervan your pitch choice is limited on this terraced site, bisected by a country lane, but the staff are helpful and will assist in manoeuvres to get you into your chosen pitch. Sanitary facilities are limited but comfortable and cubicles are a good size,
