Alan Rogers Review

Au Lac du Como is situated in a most pleasant location at the head of Lake Como, in the centre of the village of Sorico, facing south down the water and surrounded by wooded mountains. There is direct access to the lake for swimming and other watersports, with windsurfing appearing to be the most popular pastime. Static units predominate but the camping area is directly by the lake, where there is said to be room for 74 touring units, with 3A electricity. However, as pitches are not marked out, pitching can be haphazard and the area may become crowded, particularly in high season when booking is advised.

Cars are parked just away from tents and caravans and there is further parking outside the entrance. The owner speaks good English and insists on respect for other residents, so ball games, barbecues and loud music are not allowed. The site is well situated for exploring the area, with Switzerland nearby via the Splugen Pass. There are also marked paths and trails for walking and biking in the mountains with an interesting nature park nearby. Although it makes a good night stop when passing this way, many visitors find it interesting and stay longer. Most guests are German or Dutch but British campers find their way here and are welcome.

Facilities

There is one good sanitary block in the centre of the static part and two smaller basic ones, all with mainly British style WCs. Hot water in the larger block is on payment but free in the other two except for dishwashing and laundry. Washing machine and dryer. Motorcaravan services. Supermarket. Hotel bar and restaurant open all day, offering excellent buffet breakfast service and evening meals. Heated swimming pool (21x7 m). Sauna and solarium. Fishing. Watersports. Canoe, kayak and bicycle hire. WiFi (free).

Location

Directions

Easiest route is north on SS36 from Lecco to Nuovo Olonio and west on SS402 (signed Gravelona) to Sorico; site is on left in centre of village. Can be approached on SS340 from Como on lakeside road – narrow in places but an interesting drive (unsuitable for larger units).
