Camping La Genziana: View from the top of the site towards the Mount Greco massif

General

  • Peaceful terraced site overlooking the valley of Lake Barrea
  • Near Barrea village in Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise National Park
  • Surrounded by scenic walking, cycling, horse riding and driving routes

Take a look at this for a spectacular setting – the views from here are really quite something, surrounded by mountains in all directions and overlooking Lake Barrea four kilometres away.

The site itself is also pretty excellent: Camping La Genziana lies 1,100 metres above sea level across two grassy hectares, with terraced pitches surrounded by acacia, maple and beech trees. It’s all set half a kilometre from the village of Barrea, right in the middle of the Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise National Park, and with smashing views towards the Mount Greco massif from the top of the site.

You’ll receive a friendly welcome from well-travelled owner Pasetta, who expertly ensures his guests have everything they need to make the most of this splendid mountain setting: talk to him about the various hikes that lead directly from the site, as well as which villages in the area to visit, and what wildlife to look out for around the locale.

This is a simple and well-maintained site that won’t leave you wanting for a thing (except a longer stay) – toilet roll is provided, showers are hot, the sinks are sectioned off to make your daily cleansing routine a little more private, and there’s also a hairdryer to help you blow dry your barnet back into order once you’re done.

A washing machine is available for use too for a small fee, and an iron is also on hand to straighten out your garments before donning them on your next adventure.

Please note

A charge of €1.00 ($0.96) applies for the use of the shower.

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

Discount cards and gift vouchers cannot be applied to bookings made via Pitchup.com.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

The bar is open between 05/22 and 09/24.

Peaceful campsite in stunning mountain area. The family who run …09/01/2022

    Peaceful campsite in stunning mountain area. The family who run the campsite are very kind and give excellent advice on hiking in the area. We did a beautiful hike recommended by the owner of the campsite. The father of the campsite owner is famous in Italy and known as the Last Wolf Whisperer. The campsite is 5 mins walk to the medieval town of Barrea, which is set in the mountainside and again really stunning. The campsite has electricity, clean facilities and a BBQ area. Its absolutely perfect! We definitely plan to return one day.

Local attractions

Your walking boots will be put to good use around here: direct from the site are several hiking routes, and the local village of Barrea is a popular departure point for moderately flat and short hikes in the surrounding parkland.

You can get up on a horse or get yourself on two wheels to explore the area too, on the mountain biking and horse riding trails for all abilities around Barrea and the wider national park. There are also spectacularly scenic driving and cycling routes around the mountain passes of Gran Sasso d'Italia, Maiella, Sirente and Velino.

Lake Barrea, four kilometres from base (the view from the site is so clear you might just think you can dive in from your pitch), is the place to hire pedalos and windsurfing boards for something active, or if you’re feeling a little lazy, umbrellas and comfy sunbeds for lounging days.
