Late in season so site not at it's best; Couriers Martin and Maureen are 'Reale' stars -our gratitude to them. Had weather been really bad (rain-wise) then access to tents from below would have been hazardous.
This was an excellent holiday- the campsite is just perfect for young children and up to early teens. It is big enough to provide entertainment, allowing to give the children a little freedom without being too big. All the members of staff were very friendly esp. Veronica on the information point. She was v helpful and knowledgeable. Views are stunning and the pools lovely- slightly object to paying for sunbeds but there is plenty of grass to lay your towels. The couirers were very helpful and friendly and the mobile home was immaculate.
This was our second visit to Barco Reale and we loved it just as much as the first time. Lovely location up in the hills, with stunning views from the pools. This is the most civilised campsite we’ve been to – more like a Club Med than a campsite!
Quiet pitches away from the pool areas. Lots for children to do – activities are organised by bright European university students - but generally a campsite for families looking for a relaxing break in beautiful surroundings rather than all-out fun. Campsite restaurant is excellent – we didn’t cook in once and often had breakfast in the café too!
Bring a jumper for the evenings as being up in the hills it can get cool, even in August – during the day, there is usually a nice breeze in contrast to the oppressive heat in the cities.
left paradise at valle romantica which was 10 out of 10 in lake maggiore for this site and unfortunately was in a much lower league. cold trickle showers, scruffy grounds,Amazing views but only seen from the pool which was then closed early. Stuck on top of a hill nothing within walking distance unless very fit. Disappointing but it had a lot to live up to, Cannobio we are looking forward to seeing you next year.
Fantastic holiday at Barco Reale. It was a leap of faith for us having always holidayed in France but well worth it. In the Tuscan hills in easy reach of Pisa, Florence, Vinci, Lucca, and loads of other places to visit.
