“Great location”
Reviewed 18 July 2014 via mobile

We visited this campsite two times. Just beautifull for families, with pool as Well as Lake direct at the campsite. The cleaning at the pitches is not as good as last time. The service at supermarked and at beachbar seems not to be able to handle the amount of people in the mainseason. If those aspects could reach same level as before the campsite would be nearly perfect.

Stayed July 2014

We stayed here for 2 weeks with our 3 year old daughter. The camping itself is absolutely perfect. Lots of activities for children of all ages, great pool area and a very nice playground. The location is very nice. It's located very close to the lago maggiore and the motorway so it's easy to make day trips to nearby places. The restaurant on the camping is great and the take-away until 23:00 is very convenient.

We stayed in the newest Maxi Prestige accommodation. Everything was new, which gave the place a nice and clean feeling. However, we spoke to other guests who stayed in other caravans and they were not very positive about the cleanliness. During our 2 week stay, we never saw anything like cleaning staff in or around the caravans. We have the feeling the guests are asked to leave everything clean, with a 35 Euro penalty. However on check-out nothing is checked and if newly arriving guests complain about their caravan, they are offered to waive the 35 Euro penalty. Effectively, the places are cleaned by the guests, which probably saves the camping a lot of money.

Since it is so close to the lake, mosquitos can be a huge annoyance. Prepare to bring plenty of insect repellent and use it each day from late in the afternoon.

Reviewed 11 January 2012

We stayed here last August and booked out of necessity due to a family wedding in nearby Lake Orta (a must to visit). So we had no real expectations other than it appeared to tick a number of boxes for us. This campsite surpassed all of those expectations! The site itself is located in a beautiful spot right on one end of a pretty little lake (Mergozzo) with an absolutely stunning backdrop - the Italian Alps. We stayed in a Maxi Caravan 6.60 which was fine although perhaps would have been a little cramped had the weather been bad (it wasn't - 30/35 degrees all week!). If you can afford the Maxi Deluxe then we would recommend that option. In saying that if we were to retun we would book a MC 6.6 again.

The Pool area is really good and well maintained, with the slides being great for younger kids as well as toddlers. There's a wave machine too which is good fun. We never had a problem finding sun loungers each day.

The lake is great for swimming and unbelieveably warm although we didn't sit out there as it was just far too crowded.

Other on-site facilities such as bar, restaurant, shop etc are all good and things like Ice Cream's, Beer's and Coffee very reasonably priced.

There's an 'Animation Team' on site and lots of activites and entertainment for both young and old - we were very impressed with the high standards in this regard.

In summary we had a really superb holiday here - so relaxing that we almost didn't want to go to the wedding!
