They all consist of a living area, a kitchen corner, a small bathroom with shower and a bedroom. The small “Agri-campeggio” is situated on the most panoramic spot of Valli Unite. On the quiet terraces of a beautiful orchard you are free to choose a place for your tent or camper van. On the campsite there are showers and hot water. Children get a discount. In the farm there is a restaurant for sixty persons which offers typical and biological products for € 25 a meal.
