We spent 4 nights camping at the end of June.
Nice campsite, quite large but really doesn't feel it and good clean facilities.
If you like the "mass produced, Euro Camping" style sites then this isn't for you.
It's very much a "help yourself and do as you please" campsite which is great if you want low key and low maintenance.
Mixed English levels between the staff but that's OK - my Italian is rubbish so why should I assume they will speak English! One guy spoke excellent English as well as German and Italian, very impressive.
We were there at the beginning of the season and it was already quite busy. We had hoped to be able to book their fixed European Tents but no availability so we brought our own tent - as we were flying from UK we were restricted as to what we could bring with us so we ate a few main meals at the restaurant which was good. Simple food, not super cheap but didn't break the bank. Definitely not gourmet cuisine but tasty and served with great wine! Very comfy sofa areas which they were totally happy with us lounging all over as we played backgammon.
>upon arrival, to check in you need to go upstairs above the bar. Follow the small sign that says "Direzione" up the stairs just behind the noticeboard near the entrance. Feels like you're walking into one of the bungalows but you're going the right way!
>there is a fantastic fruit and veg van that comes 3 or 4 times a week out front, he sells your usual fruit and veg plus cheese, wine, eggs, olive oil .. loads of things! Very friendly man and great stuff
>Small supermarket on main road near site, not got a huge amount of stuff but if you are without a car it's within walking distance, with car there are a couple of slightly larger ones, go out of site onto main road and turn right, within 5 mins drive both on right hand side
>we asked if they sold ice for our cool bag which they didn't but they didn't tell us that they had 3 or 4 very large fridges for guests to use to store food and drink. This might have been nice to know from arrival as we didn't take advantage.
>the restaurant bar is open from 0800 (I think) for cofees croissants.. but again, no one told us and also that we could order bread the day before for the next day pick up
>there is a great notice board right near the entrance to the site, I would have loved these types of information to go on there - we've not camped that much before so would not have thought to ask about these types of things. I think they had a lot of "experienced" campers who would just assume
>free wifi up at the restaurant area which was great and much appreciated for planning our trips
>toilets are split between male / female but are still quite open to everyone. Showers are unisex and "open air" .. a nice view of the mountains as you shower! Some showers didn't have doors so were completely open but our block had doors on the showers albeit quite short doors so hopefully you are not too tall a lady if so, shower with your back to the world (unless you don't care at all!) :0)
Location is great (car is definitely required). Beach nearby is lovely, quite large - although gravelly and not sandy so sturdy flip flops required. Also access to some of the beaches is challenging as you have to launch yourself down the hillside. But that is most of Sardinia!!
Whilst you are there, drive to the Biderosa National Park and enjoy the beautiful white sandy beaches. You have to pay to enter and they limit access but it's worth!
We really did enjoy the site but just feel that somehow they could do more to let people know what's available and what the deal is every day, what times things happen, what's open when, fridges etc > would have added to our trip even more.
