We stayed here last August and booked out of necessity due to a family wedding in nearby Lake Orta (a must to visit). So we had no real expectations other than it appeared to tick a number of boxes for us. This campsite surpassed all of those expectations! The site itself is located in a beautiful spot right on one end of a pretty little lake (Mergozzo) with an absolutely stunning backdrop - the Italian Alps. We stayed in a Maxi Caravan 6.60 which was fine although perhaps would have been a little cramped had the weather been bad (it wasn't - 30/35 degrees all week!). If you can afford the Maxi Deluxe then we would recommend that option. In saying that if we were to retun we would book a MC 6.6 again.
The Pool area is really good and well maintained, with the slides being great for younger kids as well as toddlers. There's a wave machine too which is good fun. We never had a problem finding sun loungers each day.
The lake is great for swimming and unbelieveably warm although we didn't sit out there as it was just far too crowded.
Other on-site facilities such as bar, restaurant, shop etc are all good and things like Ice Cream's, Beer's and Coffee very reasonably priced.
There's an 'Animation Team' on site and lots of activites and entertainment for both young and old - we were very impressed with the high standards in this regard.
In summary we had a really superb holiday here - so relaxing that we almost didn't want to go to the wedding!
