This site was very good. The greeting at reception was very friendly and helpful with a free choice of available pitches. Pitch sizes varied, but most were a good size. The sanitary facilities were kept clean and, though not modern, were perfectly functional. The final access road was fine and our Garmin sat nav had no problem getting us to the site. The swimming pool looked good, though we didn’t use it and also the restaurant which even offered gluten free pizzas. Overall an excellent overnighter for us, though it would also be a good location to stay and explore: the surrounding area is interesting. Highly recommended and, for Switzerland reasonably prices (though the local taxes add another 45% to the ACSI price).

This is our third visit to this site, but the first I’ve left a review. The site is evolving from our first visit, it is a lot more open now. The pitches are a good size and easy to site the unit. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Toilets and showers are clean and water was hot. Our only down side is the main road access. Some are very narrow and require a lot of pulling in to allow others to pass. One thing that really naffed me was my Garmin 760LMT. Considering it is supposed to be for Motorhomes , caravans, lorries , I could not believe the way it brought me to the site. I have my dimensions set in excess , yet the route it took me in , would have caused a car concern. This is not the first time the route has been debatable, but this time it really took me unawares. Site 8, Garmin 2.

Camp site with rustic charm set amongst trees. Mainly level pitches, chocks only needed to make van exactly level. Toilet facilities excellent, staff very helpful. Used as a stop over for travelling south. Several annual pitches but didn't detract. Dodgy electrics so we had to use our gas. Shaded pitches, Peaceful.

A large compact site with about 200 pitches including some permanent caravans. The pitches are on grass and mostly under trees and the pitches are quite close together.
The toilet and shower blocks were modern and clean. Hot water was free.
The site has a small shop and bread etc can be ordered. There is also a nice restaurant and bar on site as well as an outdoor swimming pool.
There is a motor home service point as well as a chemical disposal point.
Although the site is in Switzerland but close to the Italian border we found that they did accept Euro’s as currency as well as Swiss Francs.
We found we needed a special type of electrical adaptor (not the usual continental type) for the Mains electric but the reception had one that we were able to borrow.
We arrived here on a Friday and the traffic in the area was horrendous but the camp site is well signed. Do not use Sat nav but follow the directions in the ACSI book !
