We gingen voor 3 dagen, het werden er 10! Prachtige locatie met ruime schaduwrijke plaatsen (niet echt waterpas) met fantastisch uitzicht. Schoon sanitair (3× p/d schoongemaakt). Nuttige informatie van de gastvrije eigenaren over waar, wat te doen in de omgeving met diverse boekjes en kaarten. BSuper camping.

Heerlijke rustige, kleine camping met mooie plaatsen, vele met schitterend uitzicht op de omringende bergen. Camping wordt met zorg onderhouden door een bijzonder hartelijke en vriendelijke beheerder, die je graag van tips voorziet. Sanitair oogt verouderd maar functioneert uitstekend en wordt ook piekfijn schoon gehouden. Plek om nog eens naar terug te keren. Hij sloot wel half september.

Prachtig gelegen camping ! Zeer vriendelijke beheerder. Maar let op ! Vorig jaar september sloot de camping op 15 september.....ook al stond er in het boekje dat hij open was tot eind september. Dit was een fout zei de beheerder. Nu staat er weer eind september, vraag het even na bij aankomst. Wij moesten dus snel een andere camping zoeken toen hij het na 5 dagen vertelde........hadden langer willen blijven ! Smalle doorgang bij de camping. Volg absoluut de borden van de camping en niet je navigatie!

Zeer joviale eigenaar, erg behulpzaam. Oud maar schoon sanitair. WiFi vonden wij behoorlijk aan de prijs.

Heerlijke rustige camping met super schoon sanitair. Goede plaatsen waarvan sommige met mooi uitzicht over het dal. Eigenaar is zeer behulpzaam en vriendelijk. Goed uitgangspunt voor het verkennen van de omgeving.
