General

  • Surrounded by the Swiss Alps, 300 metres from Lago di Poschiavo
  • Peaceful vibe among spectacular scenery and spotless amenities
  • Pool, play area, garden and bar-restaurant with terrace

Ditch the car should you so desire – or indeed, arrive here deftly on foot on a Swiss trek, as the walkers' paradise site of Camping Cavresc is only five minutes from its local train station.

Families, couples and intrepid solitary explorers all flock to this tiptop place among the Swiss Alps, for hols of a hiking sort as well as watersports of all sorts in the glacial waters of spectacular Lake Poschiavo a mere 300 metres away (you really can ditch the car while at Cavresc should you so desire).

Both outdoorsy picks will have you pitching up among mighty pretty mountain surroundings, plentiful facilities and spotless amenities – leading to accolades like 'fantastic', 'absolute gem', 'stunning' and 'beautiful' made about the site by its gratified guests.

Camping Cavresc is under 10 minutes' drive from the town of Poschiavo, in the Bernina Region of Switzerland's canton of Graubünden, among rivers, valleys, glaciers and mountains. It's a friendly place with excellent facilities and amenities, including an outdoor pool, a play area, table tennis, a TV room, and a garden with loads of room to wander, run around or play.

There's a bar-restaurant for meals, drinks and light bites too, to have in the comely indoor setting or out in the garden among views of greenery and Swiss Alps. Takeaway is also available, and barbecues are allowed.

  • Liked: 

    Beautiful location in the mountains goes without saying, but the facilities were absolutely spotless. Campsite was busy but plenty of space between pitches, and quiet after dark.

    Disliked: 

    Communication a little difficult when checking in and out.

    Absolutely everything. Fantastic site, very friendly staff, in a location to die for. Next to a beautiful glacial melt lake, in the Poschiavo valley, stunning views and arriving on Swiss national day meant fireworks on the lake. Spectacular. The site has a lovely outdoor pool, small but perfect for cooling down in the 30 degree temperature. Superb facilities for washing clothes, showers and disposals. Spent a week here and couldn't be happier. We would highly recommend this site to anybody. Thank you for a fantastic week.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing.

Local attractions

The deep blue glacial waters of lovely Lago di Poschiavo are within a couple of minutes' meander from the site for spectacular scenery and lakeside hikes. Woodland trails are close by too: ask the Camping Cavresc team for info on the best routes.

Local town Poschiavo is connected to the Alps region of Engadin and the rest of Switzerland via the Bernina Pass, the high mountain pass linking the Poschiavo valley and St Moritz. To traverse it in splendid style, take the Bernina Express tourist train running all year round between Chur and Tirano; it's the highest railway route in Europe at 2,253 metres, so get pics aplenty to show off later.

At the foot of the Bernina mountain range, about half an hour's drive from the site, the glacier mills area of Cavaglia is also mighty pretty for pics and trekking around. Access it 400 metres from the Cavaglia station of the Rhaetian Railway, either under your own steam or on a guided tour available from June to October.
