Val Sesia Accomodation

Post by marv_mcd »

Hi,
We're trying to track down some accomodation in Campertogno or thereabouts, a chalet or something similar. Does anybody have any names/ideas please?
Cheers,
Martin

May I heartily recommend Camping Chiara if you plan to go over to the Chiusella at all. Just downstream of the bridge seperateing the upper(ish) and lower(ish) sections. Cosy huts with ensuite caravans! But well worth it to have light, electricity and a gas cooker to haul your broken body back to - Great.

Forgotten the name of the campsite in Campertogna itself - on the island (serperated by flood releif channel) in the river. Very good facilities though, great bar and restaurant and very amenable owner. Camping is an appealing option here, even if it's snowing...

Best place is river right on the second bend up the mountain, downstream for the one of the Sesia put ins, under the tarp strung against the roofrack if I recall correctly... get up early to avoid the cows being diven through your nicely set up sleeping arrangements. The neck bells are a ood warning. Clang, Clang, "yawn, what's that noise" etc..

Camper Van in Campertogna

Post by colinbell »

Can recommend the campsite in Campertogna too (the one on the island) good facilities and you can paddle the middle section of Sesia almost to your tent without to much carry. Beware though, the metal bridge across the river is very narrow and is not too amenable to campervans and their bumpers. We received a congratulatory drink from host as we had been the first campervan in the campsite since the stone bridge had been washed away in the spring floods.

Anyone know what the Sesia is like these days as I was there in 2001 and the Sesia was threatened by damming and hydro schemes?

Thanks Colin,
Unfortunately we're going to fly out so we were planning on being lame and not camping, this camp site sounds really good though.

What's the village of Capertogno like Colin?
Is it big enough for cafe/deli etc?
