Alan Rogers Review

Meride is a small village in the extreme south of Switzerland close to the Italian border and not far from the A2/N2 motorway. The site is on a slight slope 1 km. from the village. There is space for 65 small touring units with 13A electricity connections available for all (long leads required). The pitches are not numbered or marked out but are level on terraces, mostly among tall trees. When the site is busy, units could be crowded, it is therefore requested that towing cars are parked outside. This site would make a good stopover, with a refreshing dip in the pool welcome at the end of a long journey.

A river runs across the top of the site and along one side, with a natural pond. Reception and the bar are reached by crossing a small wooden bridge. A gravel road runs from the entrance to the top of the site, and on the top level is a large, open field for tents, with electricity and water points. Apart from a little traffic noise from the road running past, it is a tranquil site ideal when spending a few days exploring the area. The road from the motorway is narrow in places, and care will be needed at the site entrance.


A good quality sanitary block with the usual facilities, free hot water and a baby room. Additional toilets by reception. Grotto Café, with log fire in cool weather, serving drinks and simple evening meals. Basic food supplies. Refurbished, heated swimming pool (1/6-30/8) and paddling pool. Playground. Some entertainment is organised in high season. Bouncy castle. TV and videos (in café). Tented club room for entertainment and groups. WiFi over site (free).
