  • Peaceful terraced side overlooking the valley of Lake Barrea
  • Near Barrea village in Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise National Park
  • Surrounded by scenic walking, cycling, horse riding and driving routes

Take a look at this for a spectacular setting – the views from here are really rather something, surrounded by mountains in all directions and overlooking Lake Barrea four kilometres away.

The site itself is also pretty excellent: Campeggio La Genziana lies 1,100 metres above sea level across two grassy hectares, with terraced pitches surrounded by acacia, maple and beech trees. It’s all set half a kilometre from the village of Barrea, right in the middle of the Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise National Park, and with smashing views towards the Mount Greco massif from the top of the site.

You’ll receive a friendly welcome from well-travelled owner Pasetta, who expertly ensures his guests have everything they need to make the most of this splendid mountain setting: talk to him about the various hikes that lead directly from the site, as well as which villages in the area to visit, and what wildlife to look out for around the locale.

This is a simple and well-maintained site that won’t leave you wanting for a thing (except a longer stay) – toilet roll is provided, showers are hot, the sinks are sectioned off to make your daily cleansing routine a little more private, and there’s also a hairdryer to help you blow dry your barnet back into order once you’re done.

A washing machine is available for use too for a small fee, and an iron is also on hand to straighten out your garments before donning them on your next adventure.

    Loved almost everything about this campsite and the town. Marco(?) the owner couldn't have been nicer, offering us a choice of camp pitches and extra blankets if we wanted them. He even gave us hints on a lovely walking route and a guide book showing the best views and information on the hills around. The town was beautiful, possibly our favourite place in all of Italy, and the small museum was lovely with very nice enthusiastic staff. Marco recommended the castle, which was worth a visit and a lovely pizzeria for dinner. There are supposedly wolves and bears but we didn't see any, only lovely warm sunshine and unspoilt views over the lake.


    Quieter than it deserved to be. Wish we'd been able to stay more than 1 night.

    extrem freundliche Betreuung durch den Besitzer, seine Familie und vor allem dessen Vater den "Almöhi" Pasetta, der immer gerne gute Wander- und Rundreisetips gibt! - Den kann man auch "googeln".
    Wir waren auf keinem Mietzelt, sondern mit dem Eigenen unterwegs - und ohne Kinder, daher keine Punkte bei Kindern.
    Temperaturen im Juli bei überwiegend sonnigem Wetter ca. 10° nachts und kaum über 26° C tagsüber.

Local attractions

Your walking boots will be put to good use around here: direct from the site are several hiking routes, and the local village of Barrea is a popular departure point for moderately flat and short hikes in the surrounding parkland.

You can get up on a horse or get yourself on two wheels to explore the area too, on the mountain biking and horse riding trails for all abilities around Barrea and the wider national park. There are also spectacularly scenic driving and cycling routes around the mountain passes of Gran Sasso d'Italia, Maiella, Sirente and Velino.

Lake Barrea four kilometres from base (the view from the site is so clear you might just think you can dive in from your pitch) is the place to hire pedalos and windsurfing boards for something active, or if you’re feeling a little lazy, umbrellas and comfy sunbeds to lounge around under or on.
