no, the swimming pool doesn't have a diving board :(
Please note that the nearby restaurant, famous and frequently mentioned in our reviews, is not managed by us, it is highly renowned in all the area and often busy. We recommend booking in advance on their website or via WhatsApp to secure your table

C i a o !
we are Matteo and Christina,
we have a family together and we run this campsite since 2017
after Christina's parents, Giorgio & Irene built it and run it for more than 10 years.
We love to share the peace you feel in this magical place with those who appreciate nature and mountains,
we do our best to make every guest feel comfortable starting from the initial welcome to the continuous willingness and great trust that we like to place in our guests, who more than customers more often become dear friends, and this is one of the things that pleases us the most
We carry out every aspect of management, cleaning, and administration, maintenance and in the meantime, we carve out moments for ourselves and our children,
during the opening months, we live in the campsite, for any emergency we are present, 7/7
we are part of a local association that takes care of keeping alive the interest in our mountain environments, its ancient stories (also related to the Partisans) and entertainment or maintenance initiatives
our quadruped helper:
Tek- born in 2008- used to accompany people on the (right) path to the mountains all day long and in the nighttime to keep wild boars away from the campsite. Passed away last 29th April 2023 :(
our quadruped helper ll:
Greg (Gregorio) born in 2020(?)- initially unlawfully arrived from a nearby cat colony, but he earned our respect and love very quickly (watch out for his twin: he steals food and won't let you get close). He watches over our children following them in the dim light while occasionally hunting some small animal arriving from the near woods

"Een fantastische belevenis
Wat een geweldig mooie plek. Matteo en Christina zijn zeer gastvrij, meedenkend en super vriendelijk. Alles is brandschoon en keurig aangelegd met veel passie voor de natuur. Het restaurant, dat net naast de camping ligt heeft verrukkelijk eten. Deze plek is een must see and do spot"

Svegliarsi al mattino, aprire la porta e ritrovarsi nel meraviglioso silenzio del bosco di castagni e betulle, uno scoiattolo che corre su un ramo, l'aria fresca che muove le foglie, i rumori lontani della montagna.
Sedersi sorseggiando il caffè, aspettando che il sole faccia capolino tra i rami. Una settimana così ripaga di ogni affanno e stress che la vita ti propone. Una rinascita :)
E' stata una fantastica scoperta questo camping, Cristina e Matteo ti accolgono con gentilezza, sorrisi e disponibilità. [...]
E' uno di quei posti, che quando vieni via ... lasci un pezzetto di cuore :)
Il campeggio della serenità gestito in modo impeccabile ... Ottimo ristorante,post panoramico,un posto da ricordare per ritornare
Reservation is necessary?As we are in a remote location with no other options and a challenging road, it is always better to book via email or inquire about availability on WhatsApp. We are always very sorry to turn away people without a reservation because we have no available space. Especially during the peak season, usually between July 15th and August 20th; During this time, in fact, approximately 80% of the priority reservations are already confirmed with a deposit more than six months in advance, and in this time we try to accommodate new arrivals without "taking away" from those who booked well in advance
Can I come with a long vehicle?this is technically possible, but still not suggested (for vehicle over 7m...) the road is really narrow (let's say as a one way road but double way driving !), curvy and it climbs for 6km in to the woods, sometimes just beside a ravine... not for the faint of heart indeed. more to consider, specially in high season: we might not have so many place available, so please check before such an avventure to come, if we have place for you! we really don't like to send (scared-)people away :/ the best option to drive is from "Colletta" side for climbing up ( ! interdict for more than 8m vehicle, except if with trailer/caravans ) and the "Picchi" side for going to town: in this way you will have always the mountain on your side
Can I bring my dog with me? (/cat)Animals are welcomed in here, just please consider we are next to the woods so there will be plenty wild animals around, and of course camping life is a closely-community coexistence, so please make sure your pet won't disturb in any way your neighbors It is possible to take not more than 2 animals /family. 🐕🐕 Extra charge for each animal, please check the rates It is essential for us to be aware of your presence in advance through the booking process. This allows us to efficiently manage reservations and allocate sufficient space for each guest in the camping area. Specifically, for mini chalets, knowing in advance is particularly important as it allows us ample time for deep cleaning and sanitization, especially if we have incoming guests with allergies after your stay.
can I receive some friends during my staying?Yes, please inform us in time about this there is a tariff for daily visitors and also for overnight visitors, just let us know if you wish to offer them this tariff or let them pay in any case any people inside the camping site must register his document at arrival In really rare case, if campsite will be full, won't be possible to admit other people
can I buy groceries in there?The only commercial activity in the area are our selves and the restaurant "Freidour" We do have a little store in our reception for long-life-products , and in high season we can order for you some bread that will arrive 9.00 in the morning an other option can be to order some take away dishes from the restaurant next to us. Usually (it doesn't depend on us!) on Sundays mornings some local producers sells its own vegetables or honey or medical herbs or cheese just outside the camping The first shop/grocery are in the center of Giaveno or Cumiana, both at least 8km ( 13-14 min by car)
is there a campingcar service?In here you can empty your chemical toilet in appropriate wc, grey water discharge in an drain, and recharge your water tank before you place your vehicle or when your leaving these services are included in tariff, you don't need to pay extra
can I wash my car/camper/van?No, in order to save drinkable water and to preserve the pitch soil is not possible to wash your vehicle in our campsite
I heard about a difficult road, what's about?The road is extremely narrow (almost like a one-way road, but with two-way traffic!), winding, and climbs 6km through the woods, sometimes running alongside a ravine. It's definitely not for the faint of heart. The best option for driving is to approach from the "Colletta" side for climbing up (note that vehicles over 8m are prohibited unless they have a trailer like caravans), and use the "Picchi" side for going to town. This way, you'll always have the mountain on your side. For this reason, we recommend bringing groceries and supplies with you before arriving to avoid making too many trips.
how much does it costs...?The rates depend on the seasons and what you would like to book; the mini chalets have a rate based on the number of people and include basic Wi-Fi, access to the pool, access to the vegetable garden, hot water, gas, and energy consumption. The rates for pitches depend on the composition of your group, the type of equipment, and any extras (such as electrical hookup for 3A/10A pitches). If in doubt, please provide us with the details of your stay via email or the reservation form to confirm availability and get a non-binding quote!
