Gemütlicher Platz & perfekter Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge in die 5terre 23/08/2017

    La sfinge ist ein kleiner und familiärer Campingplatz. Wir wurden herzlich begrüßt und haben sogar eine persönliche Tour zum Zeltplatz sowie allen anderen wichtigen Einrichtungen (Toilettenhaus/ Duschhaus/ Kühlschrank/ Info über Supermarkt/ Busfahrpläne) erhalten.Toll war außerdem der Shuttlebus vom Camping zum Bahnhof und zum Strand. Der Camping Platz bietet sich sehr gut an, um von dort aus Ausflüge zu den Cinque terre, nach la Spezia oder auch genua zu machen. Der Strand in Deiva Marina ist auch sehr schön!

Clean, well-organised site with super staff in UNESCO rated area 20/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Roger K. Mobile phone icon Confirmed

  • Electric mixed touring caravan pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    First and foremost, this is a campsite run with friendly and reassuring care by ever-helpful Guido, and wonderfully well assisted every day by both Roberto and Gwendolina. All three remained smiling, courteous and BEYOND helpful, even including running us both down to a booked restaurant in the town below, when the expected bus failed to show.
    They are a superb team. Thank you to them.
    The adequate facilities were always, always meticulously cleaned at least twice a day by the same hardworking lady, who left them spotless each time. The showers were unfailingly set to warm, with a good uninterrupted flow and good showerhead. Our only suggestion is that Guido might consider keeping one shower in July/August as a COLD one, as very often that was what people most wanted when returning, in such extended hot weather as we had for our whole month there.
    Good BBQ and preparation area to use, plus tables, chairs, and space in a large freezer to freeze iceblocks. Flowerpots and shrubs abounded, and were kept watered and cared-for. Shop very near campsite was EXCELLENT, with good fresh produce and lovely meat/fresh bread too.
    The campsite terraces are attractive - but with such a long "outfit" as ours (7metre caravan plus awning) we were given a huge hard-standing next to the shower block. We felt like voluntary "greeting" staff, sitting outside on the little grass patch that survived the searing heat, and saying "hi" or chatting to the fantastic range of world visitors arriving in this excellent base-camp for the Cinque Terre, Portofino, Portovenere, Livorno and lovely little Framura too.
    The free bus and La Sfinge evening shuttle buses were brilliant as is the train service. Such a great area!

    Disliked: 

    We had no children to keep happy, but the minimal playground was unkempt and too far away from the main campsite - in an overgrown field, never mown and with bees abounding in July/August.
    A campsite in hot Italy needs a pool, even just a splash pool. If there's ANY way to try and install one, please do! (Deputy-manager Roberto would like one for the entrance office staff, "just outside our door" he joked!! 😂😂

    The bus service to the station is good, and the staff are knowledgeable and friendly. Excellent English spoken. Good little supermarket and restaurant just down the road.

    Disliked: 

    The pitches are tiny. Not big enough for a caravan and the awning. The showers and toilets are basic but adequate.

Local attractions

Cinque Terre National Park includes five villages that are accessible by boat or train: Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore. These small towns down to sea-level except for Corniglia, which is perched on top of a tall cliff. Cinque Terre, with its pastel-coloured houses and tiny fishing harbours, has been declared Unesco World Heritage in 1997.

The region has thousands of kilometres of dry walling and terraced vineyards, ancient footpaths such as Via dell’Amore (the Lovers’Way) along the rocky coastline with dramatic views over the sea.

In Deiva Marina, just 2 kilometres away from the site, you will find a beautiful beach, a tourist office, two banks, cash points, boutiques, pizzerias, restaurants, a post office and a cinema.

You can also enjoy outdoor activities including fishing, snorkelling, diving, windsurfing, canoeing, trekking and hiking. Free-climbing is available only 200m from the site.
