The camping site Orchidea is located near Feriolo di Baveno, a charming Italian village. The beautiful camping pitches on this flat, lush camping site offer plenty of shade. Some rental accommodation is available as well. The camping site's private beach is really wonderful. The beach slopes gradually into the water. For more fun in the water, you can take a dip in the swimming pool on the camping site. The activities team gives it their all throughout the day to entertain both young and old. The restaurant (which includes a terrace with a view) serves up delicious dishes.
Spacious, lush pitches
Orchidea primarily features touring pitches (roughly 200), but there are a few mobile homes and apartments. The borders of the pitches are marked and there is plenty of space. There is no shortage of greenery, either. Are you coming with a big camper van? If so, inform the site ahead of time, because the many, tall broad-leaf trees mean that there are fewer pitches where your van will fit.
The activities programme (particularly the kids' dance party) keeps the day entertaining and creates a lively atmosphere on the camping site. Those looking for peace and quiet are best served by choosing a spot by the lake.
Entertainment on the camping site and on the water
The camping site is clearly focused on families, which is clear from its activity programme and various sports fields (football, volleyball, table tennis, petanque). There are also two playgrounds for smaller children. The little ones can also enjoy themselves at the mini club or the juniors' club. If you're looking to cool off, you can find the solution in the modern swimming pool (built in the spring of 2017).
The largest "swimming pool" is Lago Maggiore, of course! You can easily walk here from the camping site. The camping site has its own sandy beach, which gradually slopes into the lake. This makes it perfect for smaller children, too.

A fairly large lakeside campsite. We were lucky and managed to get a lakeside pitch on the edge of the site which overlooked the lake on one side and a small creek on the other – perfect! Pretty and peaceful. But if it is busy and you are unfortunate you could be crammed into the centre with no view and, in some places, rather dark under the trees. The view from our pitch was lovely and we enjoyed many hours watching the bird life going about its daily routines. The only downside was we overlooked the campsite 'beach' and were subjected one evening (fortunately just one!) to a long bout of loud shouting and screaming from some boys playing in the lake.
The facilities were basic but clean. The campsite has a small shop with a reasonable selection of stuff. Also has a restaurant but we didn't use it so can’t comment. WiFi is charged as extra.
After cycling along the busy road to the nearby village of Feriolo, the next evening we discovered we could walk/cycle directly from the campsite via a new gate which looked like it had been recently opened. And just outside the gate there is a stall selling great ice-creams!
A lovely site next to the lake and within walking distance of the town.A beach for children, great bars and eating places both on site and locally. We will be going back very soon.
