Campeggio Ecochiocciola: Grass pitch with trees for shade

General

  • Eco-friendly and foodie site 10 minutes' drive from Montese
  • Restaurant serving local food; jams, sauces and chutneys made on site
  • Pool, tennis, playground, trampoline and spotless amenities

If you’ve ever wondered what hidden Italy looks like – and equally importantly, how its cuisine tastes – the Campeggio Ecochiocciola team reckon this is the place for you.

For starters, this handsome park is in the province of Modena between Bologna and Florence (you may have heard that both cities are rather well known for their food), in what the site staff proudly hail as the culinary heart of Italy.

Culinary adventures are sorted with ease on site too: the restaurant dishes up a wide variety of local cuisine and regional specialities; makes its own jams, sauces and chutney, and ventures further afield with food offered from areas visited by chefs Ottavio, Gestore and Cuoco. And as well as all that… foodie trips to the likes of local parmesan cheese farms are regularly arranged...

As you may have gathered from the ‘eco’ part of the name, Campeggio Ecochiocciola is firmly environmentally friendly too, a site where the team makes it their mission to be as eco conscious as possible. Green and eco materials are used throughout wherever possible, and the restaurant menu is packed with meals made using locally sourced and produced ingredients.

For those times you’re not at the restaurant, the site has tennis and volleyball courts for the grownups, a summer pool, and a play area and trampoline for smaller foodies. And its ‘hidden’ aspect? Take a look at the pics to see Campeggio Ecochiocciola’s scenic and secluded setting… you might opt to remain – and feed – here for the whole of your hol.

Please note

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 28/05 and 30/08 (subject to weather conditions).

The restaurant is open between 01/06 and 15/09.

Please note, in August customers are required to park all cars in the designated area.

    Quiet location, nice view from some pitches, friendly staff.

    Disliked: 

    Staff didn‘t recognize pitchup booking and charged full price. No foreign languages (some English, but barely enough to guide us to our pitch). Facilities closed for repairs, but were allowed to use one of the huts instead.

    We enjoyed our stay very much as the view was beautiful, Ottavio offered good meals as well as interesting informations and the place was clean and had an abundance of plants and flowers well looked after. A nice place to stay for a couple of nights if you like to go for a walk, calm down or go for a ride on your bicycle.

    Disliked: 

    It would be great to alter the automatic light system in the sanitary building as it is a bit inconvenient to jump out of the shower in order to get the light started again.

Camping slice of heaven18/08/2020

    Everything! Camping heaven if you like small, quiet an quirky campsites .Not many touring pitches but good sized and grassy. Electric hook up easily available. Fabulous views across the mountains and lovely cool air at night, with amazing night sky as little light pollution. Campsite run on Eco principles, and produces lovely food grown on site or locally sourced.
    Friendly owners encouraged a very chilled, relaxing atmosphere.
    Sanitary facilities a little tired but very clean.
    Lovely swimming pool and terrace looking out to the mountains beyond.
    Would definitely go back and stay for several days - unfortunately this time was a one nighter on the way south.

    Disliked: 

    The only thing was the drive up in our motorhome, which is quite a small one, but the roads are very twisty and narrow in places, with over enthusiastic drivers coming round bends on the wrong side of the road! Having said that, we were travelling on a Sunday, with what seemed like half of Modena racing down the mountain after a weekend away. Just keep your wits about you and be wary of Satnav giving less than helpful directions.

    L’ecochiocciola è un parco relax. Ampi spazi verdi per sistemarci in tenda, disponibilità del personale, vasta scelta di cibi del posto al ristorante. Bagni e docce puliti.

    Disliked: 

    Mancanza di controlli agli schiamazzi notturni (un gruppo di ragazzi ha festeggiato fino alle 3 di notte). Per i lavandini c’era solo acqua calda, lusso in inverno ma in estate meno piacevole.

    место находится на горе 780 м. заезжать лучше днем- дорога узкая и горная, но стоит того. ночевать в облаке это круто))воздух свеж и чист и никого))))нам понравилось очень.хозяин переодетый в шеф-повара ресторана приготовил изумительный ужин в лучшем виде. с итальянским местным вином и сыром на горе мы встретились с Италией.

Local attractions

Still got an appetite? Set out on a foodie tour of the area to sample the famed balsamic vinegar in Modena (an hour and 15 minutes’ drive), tour parmesan cheese factories and eat your way round Bologna (an hour and 20 minutes), where you can take cooking classes, take eating tours and learn more about the Italian foodie scene at Fico Eataly World, billed as the world’s biggest food park.

Or perhaps it’s time to temper all that eating with a bit of activity… if that’s the case, make tracks for the mountain trails of Monte Belvedere (15 minutes) or the more manageable paths of the Sassi di Roccamalatina Regional Park (40 minutes), taking in caves, woodland and little villages as you wander.

If you’d like to see some of the scenery from above, take to the treetop trails at Esploraria adventure park (half an hour). Prefer to keep feet on the ground? Wander around Montecuccolo Castle (40 minutes) or pick a little village for strolls and lunching – Montese, Castel d’Aiano and Zocca are all good options within a half-hour drive.
