Alan Rogers Review

Le Prese is on the Tirano to Saint Moritz road, south of the Bernina Pass. Camping Cavresc is set among grassy meadows in the Valposchiavo valley and is blessed with a southern climate, a peaceful ambience and beautiful views. It is a very informal and relaxed site with modern sanitary facilities. For touring units there are 30 flat, level pitches, all with 10A electricity and convenient water points, plus a group of eight fully serviced pitches. There is some shade. If the campsite reception is unmanned, walk back into town as the Sertori family, who own the site, also run the small well stocked supermarket. Le Prese is close to Italy and the Poschiavo Lake.

When they say that the trains run through the town, they mean it, because through the length of this small town the main railway line runs parallel to the main road and traffic is forced to the side each time a Bernina Express arrives. Indeed, a section of Poschiavo town centre is closed for the trains. Camping Cavresc is valued not only as a peaceful night stop, but offers a relaxing break with plenty of local interest. Lake Poschiavo is a short walk through the village.


The excellent toilet block is very well maintained. Showers are free. Facilities for disabled visitors. Washing machines, dryers and iron. Dishwasher. Motorhome services. Restaurant/bar (June-Oct). Small shop. Inflatable pool (high season). Bicycle hire. There are plans for outdoor ice-skating to be added nearby in the winter. WiFi (charged).

Le Prese is 6 km. south of Poschiavo. Coming from Italy on road no. 29, the site is towards the southern end of the town. Turn right towards Pagnoncini/Cantone and site is on right in 100 m. Turn just before a humpback bridge at the entrance. From the north, via the Bernina Pass, do not be misled by another signed campsite between Poschiavo and Le Prese.
