Alan Rogers Review

Valle Gesso is situated in Entracque, a village near Cuneo in southern Piedmont. It borders on the Parco Naturale delle Alpi Marittime, the largest protected area in Piedmont and one of the biggest in Italy. There are 137 touring pitches, 70 of these have 3-6A Europlug, water and drainage. A dedicated area accommodates up to 70 tents. Rarely do we come across a site which appeals to such a wide variety of holiday styles. Valle Gesso offers a magnificent pool, a football and volleyball field, hiking and cycling for the more active, whilst maintaining a totally natural mountain retreat for those seeking a more restful break.

The owners are determined to maintain the rustic personality of their site, and encourage campers, young and old, to explore the surrounding natural beauty. This attractive area, once a Royal Hunting Reserve, is one of the richest in Italy for botanic variety, both Alpine and Mediterranean. Occasional talks are given by visiting naturalists and local craftspeople. A little away from the site, hot springs gush out in the spa complex of Terme di Valdieri, and nearby is a centre for the conservation of wolves, which may be spotted from a lookout. A secure nature walkway runs through the woods to the river.
