CAMPING IN YOUR OWN TENT
Prices per night
€7 (€5 when booking in advance) per child (2 - 12 years), per night
RENT A TENT: If you would like to travel light, rent a tent and equipment from us for €1 per night: http://kokopelli-italy.blogspot.it/2015/03/tent-free-travel.html
Everywhere within our camping area has a wonderful view of the hills and mountains of the Majella and Gran Sasso, so you'll be spoilt for choice. We have shaded areas under the olive trees, we have open spaces and tucked away corners.
You can book in advance (see HOW TO BOOK), or you can just turn up (but give us a call before coming in July & August to check we're not full).
If you would like to charge devices, this can be done in the campers’ barn, alternatively we’re always happy to charge your device in our house.
Everything is freely available to all our guests, all we ask is a small contribution to the gas or charcoal if you use it. Therefore, if weight and space is at a premium for your journey to us, in reality all you need bring is your tent, roll mat and sleeping bag - everything else is here.
GLAMPING IN OUR CANVAS BELL TENTS
Prices per night
All tents come equipped with a proper mattress (no blow-up beds), rugs, lamp, picnic table & chairs, parasol. Being of white (or cream) breathable canvas with mosquito netted windows, the tents stay cooler and more bug free than most tents. They are pretty robust and waterproof and will withstand the strongest storm.
All your bed linen is provided, including towels. We have two double-ring camping gas burners, a gas oven and hob, two small barbecues an one large grill. Everything is freely available to all our guests, all we ask for is a small contribution to the gas or charcoal if you use it.
Families with older children: we keep two tents pitched close together, doors facing and with shared outside furniture. This allows the parents and kids to have their own space, but for the parents to still feel secure that their children are safe and close.
For bookings, see: HOW TO BOOK
The Barn (€40 per couple per night, extras @ €7 each, children under 2yrs free)
All facilities: showers, loos, kitchen, etc are shared with the campsite. This room is ideal for families or couples who would like more space than a bell tent, yet still want to be part of the camping vibe. Ideal for the spring and autumn months, you will have the luxury of bricks and mortar as opposed to canvas, as well as radiators and a big cosy bed.
The Farmhouse (€45 per night)
This is a very comfortable room attached to our house. It has a large double bed, an en-suite bathroom, a small fridge and tea/coffee making facilities. All the facilities of the campsite are available to all our guests who stay here.
This room is perfect for couples who would prefer the convenience of their own bathroom and a little more privacy, yet still want to benefit from all we have to offer.
With it’s radiator heating and own bathroom this room is also perfect all year round.

For bookings, see: HOW TO BOOK
DOGS IN THE CAMPSITECamping in your own tent: well behaved dogs are more than welcome to stay on the campsite (2€ per night) but, because we are within a farming location with free roaming livestock and without boundary fences, we do need them to be on a leash and under control at all times, both in and around the campsite. There are many places only a short walk down the lane where your dog can have a good run.

Advice for Hikers, guide books & maps
For self guided hiking, we have our own written guides for local hikes, and further afield, which are inclusive for all our guests.
We keep a copy of the Cicerone Hiking Guide to Abruzzo plus a couple of other excellent hiking guides to the region.
We have trekked extensively over the Majella and are more than happy to give you advice and guidance. If you would prefer us to take you out, we’re happy to do this too (with a small contribution to our costs and time).
If you would like to use us as a base for storing kit, picking you up, dropping you off, etc get in touch and we can advise.
Snowshoes & hiking poles
In the winter the Majella is transformed into a winter wonderland with snow on the higher peaks generally from November until the end of March. We have snowshoes available for our guests (inclusive of cost), plus plenty of advice as to where to go. Again, with a contribution to our time and costs we’d be more than happy to take you on a guided excursion.
