This campsite is well located in a local village and not far from other towns. It is quite a large site and with that comes positives and negatives. The site is well laid out and the camp sites are spacious. One criticism is the site after sending 3 emails from this app and their website did not respond it was only by telephone call did I get a booking. The showers and toilets are reasonably good with no restrictions on use. However I often wonder whether owners or managers ever use their facilities thus experiencing problems campers face. For instance whilst the showers are adequate they are designed in such a way the cubicle gets wet with no area for keeping shoes and feet dry. There is a shop on site limited choice but all the essentials however very expensive so stock up from a supermarket. Overall by comparison to many other sites I would say of equal status. Also they charge for WiFi which is not reliable
Can recommend the site. Great helpful staff who speak English plus great facilities, really ‘top notch’. Use coordinates and address in ACSI book. We found the site pre programmed on our satnav and it took us to the old back entrance. Thankfully they let us in but said they would not have done this in high season. The only downside is that the pitches on the main section of the site closest to the lake are small, the access roads are small, lots of trees and the corners are tight. Not a problem for campervans and smaller motorhomes. We are a caravan (7.5m) and squeezed onto a pitch near the lake but this was only possible as it was not busy and the surrounding pitches were free. There are a few easily accessible pitches just down from the entrance. If we had come in the proper way we would have seen them and it would have saved the stress of negotiating around the main camping area. We also grounded out on one of the ramps!!! Speaking to the staff they said there are plans to modernise the main camping area which would be good. Great site though.
Stopped for one night. The facilities were excellent and kept clean. There is a lovely new swimming pool which I had to myself - probably because it was no longer heated. There is a side gate into the village which is unlocked with a wristband and onto the town beach where dogs can swim. The village has a lovely independent supermarket. Although the facilities were lovely the site was too large for our liking and we prefer not to have to wear a wristband.
Lovely location, showers and toilet facilities were great, very clean and tidy, good hot and powerful showers. Lake difficult to swim in due to stones leading down to it. Pitches are great and campsite is well laid out. Make sure you take your earplugs as there was some train noise and a big frog symphony at night. Great little shop along the waterfront to get bread and fresh goods. Great for a relaxing rest after the drive from the UK.
Site access by the lake into village. Whilst key entry was requied from the road for driving or walking access was open from the beach at all times.
Lovely site right by the side of the lake with its own sandy beach.
The reception staff spoke excellent English and were very helpful. The pitches are flat and of a reasonable size with plenty of shade. The toilet and shower blocks are kept exceptionally clean with plenty of hot water. We can recommend the pizzas from the onsite restaurant, these ranged from 6.50 - 9.50 euros. There is a lovely little promenade into the small village where there are around 4 restaurants overlooking the lake. There is also a supermarket about 5 minutes walk away that stocks a wide range of fresh products. The site is very secure with a night watchman. We would definitely recommend this site. ACSI payment is by cash only.
This is a great site and in a great location, we stayed here for 3 weeks, 1 week finding our surroundings and 2 weeks with family visiting in Baveno. Right on the lake, good size pitches, quiet site, good restaurant, mixed reception staff (younger lady very helpful, older lady very grumpy). Town of Feriolo is right outside gate with some very good restaurants and coffee/cake places. You can cycle to Baveno which has a ferry terminal to all the great places to visit - the 3 islands, Stresa, Verbania and Locarno (Switzerland). You can also cycle to Stresa not cycle route all the way however motorists seem to be courteous. Sanitary Facilities are kept clean and tidy. Downside have to pay for wifi. ACSI visitors have to pay cash regardless of length of stay. Recommended.
We loved this site and found it an excellent choice. It was on the edge of the lake and had lovely views over the water to the towns and hills around. In the evening though the views were magical with lights twinkling and reflecting over the water from dusk to dark. The pitches were a good size, mostly gravel and part sun part shade. There were three grades of pitch, 16 euros for standard at the back of the site, 18 euros for nearer the lake and 20 euros for front row lakeside pitches. The site has a bar and restaurant which, although we didn’t try it, was always busy during our stay, a good recommendation in itself. They also sold take away pizzas which we did try and found excellent. The village of Feriolo di Baveno is just outside the gates with further restaurants along the waterfront as well as boat trips on the lake. The site is child friendly with quiet and safe roads, a small playground for younger children and a lovely private sandy beach. Dogs were not allowed on the campsite beach but we were able to walk our dog on the public beaches near the site. The reception was mixed. The first girl was very friendly but the next one made us wait while she finished her photocopying! Both were efficient though and able to help with our enquiry. The toilets and showers were plentiful and clean but like a lot of Italian sites, no loo seats or toilet roll provided. There were good dishwashing, washing machine and ironing facilities. The site seems very popular with both Germans and English. We stayed two nights and had to pay in cash when we left.
Very nice campsite. Quiet, very large emplacements, shadowed, spectacular surroundings, close to Feriolo, a very nice village. Bathing in Lago Maggiore is a superb experience. One of the best campings I've been to.
