    This campsite is an absolute gem; we came for one night as a stopover and ended up staying 3 as it was so well positioned for seeing the Italian Riviera - specifically Portofino and the ‘Cinque Terre’. Very handy from the motorway, with great local supermarket, and great bonus of good restaurant (open at weekends even in late September) - whilst they do good pizzas, we were delighted with the wider menu and had a wonderful meal of ravioli followed by swordfish steaks, washed down with very reasonable local wine. The pitches are not huge, but managed to get our 7.3m caravan on - and they are effectively ‘fully serviced’ with water tap, sink and washing up structure, and drainage on the pitch. But the hing that was the most impressive was the friendliness and efficiency of the service. Some people have said they could hear the motorway, but honestly, we couldn’t work out how when we were almost underneath it we really had to strain to hear it. A great find, we were delighted and would have stayed even longer if the weather hadn’t turned too stormy.

    We were on a \"hard standing\" near the front - it was very good and we even had our own sink and tap on the pitch. Lets get this over with, traffic noise is not a problem - if you listen hard you can hear traffic at certain times of the day but it is not intrusive. The owners & family are very friendly.
    Ideally located to visit loads of nice places and there is a good supermarket 10 minutes slow walk away (just turn right out of site, then left under the motorway bridge and follow the narrow road to the left - you\'ll soon see the supermarket!)
    Toilet facilities were excellent - plenty of room and plenty of very hot unmetered water - even toilet paper was supplied!
    Touring from the Amalfi coast going up the west coast of Italy, this is one of the better sites and, in my opinion, worth a visit.

    We stayed at this site for 2 nights and it was very good. We have a 7.5 meter caravan and access is good and straightforward. There are some bigger pitches near the site entrance but overall the site is small so if you planning to stay in season I would recommend booking. Facilities are older but clean and adequate. (There are toilets with seats and toilet paper). The reception and restaurant staff were very friendly, helpful and spoke good English. We used the restaurant both nights as it was so reasonably priced and the food was good. This site is next to the motorway but as it is lower down there is minimal impact from noise. It is a 20 min walk into Sestri Levante which is a nice and pleasant seaside town. It has a good railway station which you can utilise to visit Portofino, Cinque Terre, etc. This is also a walking area and there are maps/info available on the site. We will return to this area and this site and can highly recommend both.

    Fantastic campsite for our 6.3m Hymer. Great restaurant excellent choice for my wife and I as vegetarians. We had bicycles which made getting around a cinch due to flat roads. Came for 1 night stayed 5 and very reluctant to leave. Not as touristy seemed more Italian but super friendly and most spoke pretty good English. Choice of beaches, markets Saturday morning as good if not better than most. We did a walk in cinque today but so much to do in Sestri Levante it’s taken 4 days to get there. The walks are amazing however the crowds in the 5 villages were a small challenge

    Not the prettiest site or location you’ll stay at, but it’s a good location for visiting Genoa, Portofino and the Cinq Terre. As others have mentioned, it is located alongside the A12 motorway. However, it’s very well screened and really not a problem. Some muted traffic noise is audible from the hard standing pitches at the front of the site, but you can’t hear any road noise from the grass pitches at the back of the site. The site mostly comprises statics which are busy at weekends with italian families allowing for the pizza restaurant to be opened. There are two other restaurants within easy walking distance. The train station at Sestri Levante provides the means to visit the local attractions. It’s a level 30 minute walk and trains are frequent and reliable. Sestri Levante is a nice town with beach and promenades.
    The owner speaks good English and is very informative and helpful. As others have mentioned the sanitary/washing facilities are old and tired, but they are clean. Wifi is available free across the site, but it is quite slow.
    A previous reviewer refers to a supermarket within walking distance, but that had closed down when we visited.
    Portofino is worth a visit, but the prices are crazy. Cinq Terre is extremely busy with tour groups which becomes quite annoying after a while as they tend to crowd the trains, streets, shops and restaurants. My favourite village was Corniglia which is quieter, I think because some effort is required to get there - long, steep uphill path from the station. I would not recommend Monterosso which isn’t as attractive or interesting as the other villages.
    A good value site at ACSI rates in a convenient location, perfectly OK for a few days stopover.

    Friendly welcome but this is a small site and as bank holiday loomed more and more motorhomes arrived and one person changed his pitch to come behind me making my eventual exit tricky! Toilets basic but always hot water. For early season motorhomers be aware that the bar and resto seem to operate at popular times only. Local supermarket 1/2 mile and good. Cycle into town but map needed. Sestri busy over bank holiday. Felt slightly ushered off site as BH to accommodate pre bookings. Cash only.

    This is a very small site with a lot of pitches on it but the pitch size was good for a large caravan. The staff and campers most Dutch were so very helpful and friendly the all helped to turn and push the caravan up onto the terrace as site full on arrival but allowed us to stay there till the next morning when a pitch was free. We stayed 13 nights.
