General

  • Set a few steps from Lake Como
  • Welcoming guests for over 40 years
  • Gym, hot tub, beauty centre and on-site hairdresser

Cor, look at those views... Camping Village Riviera near Garlate in Italy's Lecco province is also just a few steps from the shoreline of Lake Como – an area so blessedly pretty that the likes of George Clooney, Tom Cruise, Tom Hanks and many other celebs own villas out here.

The site has been welcoming guests for over 40 years to its basic but modern facilities including loo blocks refurbished in 2015, a small gym, a hot tub, and – a possible essential if you think you might run into George Clooney – a beauty centre and hairdresser in the main building to keep barnets and visages looking tiptop.

The friendly Camping Village Riviera team is around at reception throughout the day until late at night, to provide guests with their top tips about the local area, activities and best restaurants – and possibly the best sleb spotting opps too...?

    We only stayed one night at this campsite but had a lovely experience. Check-in was simple and we were given a good-size pitch metres from the lakeside with amazing views of the mountains across the lake. We went swimming in the lake, it's a great quiet spot, and had the whole lake to ourselves.

    The site has a small swimming pool, children's play area and pedalo/boats to hire for a small fee. (+ also a really great coffee vending machine). Very clean toilet block on site.

    There is an on-site bar which reasonably priced pizza, snacks and drinks can be ordered from, and a small fruit shop on the corner. There are local amenities a short walk away.

    During our stay unfortunately we had some cyclone/extremely windy weather which our tent found hard to cope with. The guys who run the site were extremely helpful, helping us to move our tent to a more sheltered spot during the awful weather.

    Disliked: 

    Originally couldn't park car next to pitch, but were allowed to move it due to the weather. (Car park is only a short walk)

    We originally booked a tent pitch but arrived two days early. We asked if they had a pitch for us we could stay in until our booking date.
    Marco, the owner looked on his computer and at an extremely discounted rate gave us a mobile home for the entire time of our stay. It was right by Lake Como (3m).
    So we had a bedroom, shower and kitchen !!!! Heaven.
    The swimming pool was an above ground pool and the kayaks were free to use. You just help yourself from a rack to a kayak, life vest and oars.
    The bus to town was only 5mins walk and went straight to train station, where the train goes directly to SPA motor circuit and Milan.
    Would definitely go again.

    Disliked: 

    The buses don't run at weekends, but if you go for the Grand Prix, parking in Lecco is the same cost as the bus (for two people return) and parking 100m from train station.
    Wifi wasn't really good, very hit and miss

Local attractions

As may have been mentioned (cough), famous sorts stay around these parts: Lake Como and its surrounding area is a beaut place, with stone villages overlooking snow-capped mountains, lakefront piazzas, luxury celeb-filled villas, and spectacular Lake Como, one of the most famed Italian lake destinations and a popular holiday place since the days of ancient Rome.

Walk or cycle around the shores of the lake, swim among its waters, or take a ferry up and down its length (kids go free, how fab), stopping at Lenno and Villa Balbianello. Bellagio, the 'pearl of the lake', is a must for its tiny cobbled alleys, a highly scenic setting and two gardens, Villa Serbelloni and Villa Melzi.

The nearby town of Como has an ancient centre with a Gothic and Renaissance main cathedral, a tenth century church and the nine hundred year old gateway Porta Vittoria.

And if you fancy some romance (si), make for a meal in Varenna, the small and peaceful resort with uphill piazza and a thirteenth century church.
