“Lucky find on a public holiday!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

We are two New Zealanders travelling in our large motorhome. We left Rome and found that today is a national public holiday (Assumption Day) and all of Italy is on holiday! The camps were all full to overflowing. There were several campgrounds in amongst the pine trees between the road and the sea north of Orbetello and we were lucky at the forth one we stopped at.

Gabbiano Camping Village had just one pitch available at €39 a night, so we squeezed our motorhome in where they directed us, surrounded by all the Italian families enjoying the holiday. The receptionist was so helpful and friendly, as was the young man who drove us to show us where to pitch - great customer service!

We took a look at the beach which was sand (not pebbles) but the swimming was shallow and the beach was crowded; we much preferred to cool off in the lovely modern swimming pool.

There was a central bbq area and there was a huge cookup going on there at dinner time and later there was a disco going on but the music stopped before midnight. It was a nice campsite with great facilities; it would be lovely outside of the high season when not so crowded.

Thank you very much for this unforgettable experience! See you next year for sure! Regards, the 'olandesi'

Me and 3 of my friends were told by coworkers to visit Argentario and found this camping village for a great price on trip advisor. We ended up visiting Argentario, but enjoyed being at Il Gabiano more. The village is located on a gorgeous beach, the food/wine were great and all of the staff were extremely nice and helpful. We certainly didn't want to leave! Would recommend this place to any of my friends!
