This is the most expensive campsite I have ever been on! It\'s a complete rip off. We paid for one night and just discovered that doesn\'t even cover a hot shower!
The food being dished up at the take away looked lovely but when we asked the chef what it was he nearly bit our heads off! Told us to read the menu which we had been trying to do for ten minutes in the dark! The menu was a dirty piece of laminate stuck to the shack with barely any explanation or detail! Thanks to the very rude chef we decided to cook for ourselves yet he still made a very snide comment to another person as we walked away! My partner is fluent in Italian and knew exactly what he said! Rude rude man who needs to learn some customer service skills! Glad we are only here for one night. We have travelled for months now all through France and Italy and never had such rude treatment anywhere! First and last time to this place!
Lovely location right next to Lake Lugano – ask for a pitch on the lakeside. Friendly and helpful English speaking reception team. Clean and tidy loos and showers. Well stocked shop and bar together with bistro restaurant. Pitches not marked out specifically so can be tricky keeping space around you; they’re also on a slope (leading down to the lake) so lots of levelling required. Reliable electrics. Large static home contingent on site tend to party into the night so a bit noisy.
Easy access location, though not well signed and not far off motorway (4kms parallel journey). Recommended, tough it\'s not cheap.
This is a relatively small campsite on the lakeshore. The shore is full of small stones so it is recommended to use sandals for swimming. In June the water was far too cold for swimming. The location is not bad but the noise from the railway line and the motorway is quite disturbing during the night. We can not say this is a quiet place.
