Alan Rogers Review
A small, unassuming site high above Perugia in cool green hills, Paradis d’Été is on a slope, although most of the 40 unusually large, heavily shaded pitches (6A electricity) are well terraced to be reasonably flat. Two old villas have been converted to provide amenities for the campsite and a large swimming pool sits between them offering dreamy bathing after a day touring the sights. English is spoken on site, which is ideal for those who enjoy the simple life. There is a charming snack bar and pizzas are served on the large open terrace from a separate building, with breakfast available if required.
If you wish to sample real Italian cuisine in fabulous surroundings, walk 500 m. from the site to a hotel restaurant for a real gastronomic experience. Look for the enchanting fireflies on your return to the site. Rustic but friendly, this is a ‘get away from it all’ site with good prices, even if it lacks the luxuries of the sites around Trasimeno lake.
The sanitary units are small but neat and clean with British and Turkish style toilets, hot showers and a unit for disabled campers. Hot water at sinks. Washing machine. Bar. Small pizzeria. Swimming pool (June-Sept). Small play area.

From Perugia-Foligno road take exit for Ferro di Cavallo, then road for Fontana (look for huge PAMS store at turn for Fontana). Pick up signs for Trinita and camping signs (very few). Site is at top of hill to Trinita. Ignore cul de sac signs and keep climbing! Site is on right.
