Alan Rogers Review

At the eastern end of Lake Lugano, Camping Darna is in a broad valley with a great view down the lake and mountains on all sides. It is a well run, family owned site which becomes lively in high season with plenty of entertainment for young and old; in low season it is much more relaxed. The 304 touring pitches are on flat ground, all with 3A electricity. There are 46 seasonal pitches (not along the lakeside). A restaurant serves a full range of Italian dishes and has a bar and an extensive terrace. There is an excellent swimming pool and a paddling pool.

An open air, covered area is dedicated to a children’s club and activities take place daily in July and August with ‘junior discos’ each evening. A stage hosts a variety of entertainment for adults, and sporting events. Lake tours and mountain excursions are organised in high season. There is a small private harbour and a boat trip to Lugano runs on Tuesdays and Fridays. Porlezza is just 12 km. from Menággio on Lake Como with boat connections to many points on that lake.


Five sanitary blocks, some with controllable showers, are kept very clean. Facilities for disabled visitors. Washing machines and dryers. Motorcaravan services. Good shop and bakery. Bar/restaurant with takeaway and large terrace (all season). Swimming pool (open to public, free to campsite guests Mon-Fri, € 5 at weekends) and paddling pool (1/6-30/9). Fishing, swimming and boating. WiFi (charged).

Porlezza is 14 km. east of Lugano on SS340 to Menággio. Turn right at traffic lights in Porlezza (Via Osteno). Site is 1.5 km. on right. Note: SS340 is narrow and winding, especially on the Porlezza-Lugano section (not for large units). The Como-Menággio road is least congested between 12.00 and 14.00!
