Campeggio Poncione: Pitches among greenery (photo added by manager on 02/02/2023)

General

  • Small family-run site less than five minutes from Lake Como
  • Paradise for surfing, sailing and canoeing
  • Two-minute drive from the trails of Pian di Spagna Nature Reserve

If you’ve always felt like the only difference between you and George or Amal Clooney was how much closer to Lake Como they are, then you’re in luck – you’re about to close that gap. Campeggio Poncione, in the village of Sorico, Lombardia, is less than five minutes’ drive from the town of Gera Lario at the northern tip of Lake Como.

You probably won’t be surprised to hear that the area around Campeggio Poncione is a haven for watersports enthusiasts – head out on those Lake Como waters to try windsurfing, kitesurfing and paddleboarding, have a go at sailing, or rent a canoe to explore the Pian di Spagna nature reserve.

They’re not the only activities you can set your muscles to either… Poncione is a two-minute drive from Pian di Spagna Nature Reserve – follow the trails on foot, bike or horseback, taking in the views of the mountains and trying to spot crested newts, kestrels, peregrine falcons and foxes.

Once you’ve worked up a sweat, cool off in the on-site pool then lounge in the sun with a drink from the bar in hand. Top your day off with dinner at one of the many restaurants nearby, and stock up on late-night snacks and other essentials in Sorico.

    Quiet ish site. Pitches shady. Nice restaurant Biffi - 20 min walk - (but again on the noisy road)
    nice little beach bar with good snacks behind the biffi restaurant. . Mosquito City, make sure you wear protection. Take a torch if u r walking at night.... very dark walk on way back to the site..

    Disliked: 

    Not really on lake Como. You need to cycle or a good 20 min walk to swim in clean water. Felt quite remote.
    1 euro for everything, water, showers, no toilet paper, showers toilets etc not cleaned enough. Swimming pool closed 1-3pm every day 🤷‍♂️. At hottest times.

From the manager...

Cara Janine Shead, mi dispiace leggere questa recensione. Tuttavia è tutto scritto sulla nostra pagina: il costo extra della piscina, il costo della doccia, l'orario di quiete nel campeggio che ovviamente riguarda anche l'uso della piscina. Anche se si tratta delle ore più calde, il bagno si può fare al fiume che è a due passi dal campeggio. Anche la posizione, distante dal lago e dal centro del paese 1 km, quindi 10 minuti a piedi non di più, è indicata sul nostro annuncio. Non è vero che l'acqua è a pagamento, ci sono tante fontane di acqua potabile tutte a disposizione dei clienti. La carta igienica non è a disposizione dei clienti, ma per chi non l'avesse è possibile prenderla gratuitamente al bar. Tutti questi extra sono giustificati dal basso costo che ha il nostro campeggio: 25 euro a notte per due persone a un camper penso che sia un prezzo più che onesto. Quando alzeremo i nostri prezzi aggiungeremo anche altri optional inclusi nel prezzo.

    Disliked: 

    The fees for hot water- just thought this was unnecessary given the price already paid. If you was staying for more than a few days with a family this could make it pretty pricey.

    Very friendly and helpful owners, nothing was too much trouble. They would order bread or shopping if needed. Bus just outside which can be caught to explore further afield and catch the ferry if you don't want to drive. Facilities clean and small quiet campsite situated by the lake or pool to use if preferred. Small bar and able to order takeaway which owner helped with.

Local attractions

You can’t stay this close to Lake Como and not soak up absolutely everything there is to do on its shores.

Visit the gardens and museums at Villa Carlotta, Castello di Vezio and Villa Monastero, look over the Como waters from the religious complex at Piona Abbey, or explore the stunning gorge at Orrido di Bellano, all around 30 minutes’ drive from Campeggio Poncione.

If you’re up for a bit more of a trek, make the trip to the city of Como on the lake’s southern shore, less than an hour and a half from Poncione. See the spectacular scenery around Lake Como from a different vantage point by taking to the waters for a boat trip, then take a food tour of the city.

There are a few places in Como worth spying out, too: Como Cathedral, Villa Olmo and the Tempio Voltiano museum are must-sees. Before you dive into the city’s streets though, jump aboard the Como-Brunate funicular for views back over the lake and towards the Alps.

Thrill seekers might want to steer clear of hols that are all stately homes, museums and calm waters, so they should head instead to Fly Emotion Aerofune for ziplining or Lake Como Adventure Park to swing around the tree-tops.
