Chiusa Pesio is just on the edge of the Italian Alps about an hour away from Turin. This summer we had decided to explore some of the French and Italian Alps which we had not visited before. So after camping a few nights in France we crossed the border into Italy.
Camping pian bosco Chiusa Pesio Italy.
Previous to our holiday we had looked on line and thought the area around Chiusa looked good and there were several campsites. We did not book as we were not sure exactly when we would get there and how long we would stayHaving travelled through the Alps wondering at the amazing mountain scenery we came to Chiusa The Mountains not quiet as high here as there ones we had just passed through.
The first thing that struck us about Chiusa was the black and white football shirt stripes everywhere and signs saying Euventis!!!!! We had arrived the week Euventis was playing summer training against small local teams!!! I think Euventis home is Turin. All week there were matches against teams my husband had not heard of. I was amazed that hubby did not try to get tickets to watch any games.
Chiusa is a very nice small Italian town.
We travelled out of the town on the SP5 as we had noticed several campsites marked along this road when we looked on the internet before setting off on holiday. We stopped when we saw the first site on our right hand side. We were not sure if they would take us as from the road although it said camping we could see it was mostly wooden cabins and caravans. We pulled over parked and found a small office at the entrance to the campsite. I speak limited Italian about 5 words and they spoke limited English however an n English speaking camper was fetched to aid us in our comprehension. Yes they had room for tents amongst the chalets and caravans was a very small grassy area big enough for 3 or 4 tents. We decided that we would stay here.*Price
^There was only 1 other small tent on the site and we realised they were an Euventis supporters family and using the campsite as a place to stay while they went to all the games
Cars are not allowed on site except for when you are erecting and taking down tents. There is parking at the front of the campsite.
The grass on this area was sparse. We choose a flat spot and I removed stones from where we would put the tent. (I am no princess but do not like sleeping on stones.) I found it very hard to put the tent pegs into the ground.>This site is open all year.
The toilets and showers were kept clean there were plenty of wash basins free hot water here. I found a clothes washing area as well as big basins there was a washing machine , you needed to pay for washing machine. A washing line spread outside of the back of the sanitary block.
A shower and toilet block with male and female separate.
To operate the showers you need to buy a card for 10 euros. This card you present into a machine outside the shower cubicles then activate it when you are inside the shower cubicle you get a reasonable amount of time for 1 euro but be warned you can halt the water while you shampoo or soap but do not leave it too long before switching on or the shower will go cold. It was a bit of a drag having the meter outside.
The campsite was small which suited us. There was a tiny area for children to play on with a swing and a gravel area to run or play ball on.At the entrance to the site was a small bar selling tea, coffee a few snacks and I also noticed some liquors in dispensing bottles. While we stayed here we did not visit this bar. I did not notice many people in it or on the veranda outside. I did see the owners and a couple of other people sat outside chatting Camping pian bosco Chiusa Pesio Italy.
There is no shop, no swimming pool but it’s only a couple of k from Chiusa, where there are also plenty of bars and restaurants.*Dogs
This was a fair campsite near some wonderful countryside and a lovely town would I recommend. Yes if all you want is somewhere to rest your head while you visit the locality. Would I go there again? Not surehttp://www.campeggiopianbosco.com/campeggio.html
