Stay in Piemonte near the touristy Barolo but away from the crowds! We found this great little campsite by coincidence driving past it but couldn’t resist to stay here a couple of days.
Camping Sole Langhe is a small low-key site with a great pool along and a little bar. Other than that, the facilities are simple but everything works (no major play-ground, etc.). The area behind the pool is covered in hazelnut trees and there is good plantagen between the pitches. We were lucky to get a pitch with a nice view of the surrounding wineyards. Speaking of wine, another great surprice to this site is the winery literal next to the campsite (100 meters). The winery is the well known house G.D. Vajra which makes really good wine!
There is a good restaurant in walking distance from the campsite called “Buon Padre”. All other attractions are reached by bike or car.
If travelling by bike, then make sure it has a low gearing to cope with the steep inclinations. We got pretty challenged getting around on our camping folding bikes!
Worth visiting in the area is of course the town Barolo but be prepared it is touristy. You can still however get a nice meal but wine prices are through the roof.
A more authentic town worth visitng is “Monforte d’Alba” is. This little village has a nice vibe with its central square and small cafés and vinoteca.
The town has a beatiful church and the houses are very pretty in its different colors and decorations.
Also “La Morra” is worth visiting. We can really recommend a restaurant called “Locanda Fontanazza Osteria”. The food is really good and you can enjoy the view over the wine yards.
As we really liked this small campsite, it reached our “Best of Italy campsite” list: Recommended campsites in Italy.
