Friendly reception lady and gentleman - both spoke English and helpful. Nice hot shower. Toilets clean. Church bells ring, digs bark and cow bells ring. But not intrusive. Cycle route to Lugano and down to Menaggio(8k) check the route on google we got lost and ended up on the main road. Stared 3 nights- enjoyed our stay.

We came for a couple of days and stayed more than 2 weeks. everything about Ranocchio is superb. The beautiful position by the lake, the family owners, the welcome, the facilities and pool spotlessly clean, nothing was too much trouble and we ended up firm friends! Thank you Norris, Elisa, Chiara and Sophia. Can\'t wait to return!

Unsecured ACSI booking accepted. Staff very friendly and helpful. Stayed four nights as a base for Lake Como.Well defined adequately sized pitches. Although ACSI card not available on lakeside pitches, the second row is available. Toilets adequate but very dark. Swimming pool excellent. Restaurant next door was very good and reasonably priced. Would happily stay here again.

Situated on a lovely small lake and closest CC site to Villa del Balbianello on Lake Como. Good pitch size, toilets cleaned regularly and friendly, helpful staff.

We loved our stay here. A highlight for me is the hiking and walking that you can do so easily. The washrooms and showers are impeccable. The showers are really warm as well. The pitch we were on is very rocky so it was hard to put the metal pegs for our tent in the ground. Other than that at this time of year we had a lot of space to ourselves and it was nice and quiet. The staff here are so lovely and helpful. There are lots of trees on this campsite and it feels a lot more secluded because of this. Sometimes the motorcyclists and cars are quite loud at night but it wasn't too noticeable once we fell asleep.

A lovely site with spectacular views. 20 min delay at tunnel due to police check but otherwise journey great. Walked 15 mins to supermarket in pouring rain but thoroughly enjoyed visit which we extended to 2 nights.
