Bottom Line

This large two-and-a-half pearl camping village, open only from June through September, is located in Cilento National Park Palinuro on an expansive wooded property next to the gorgeous sandy Mingardo Beach. Guests can stay in one of the 39 contemporary mobile homes on the property, all which have one to two bedrooms, a kitchenette, a front porch, and free Wi-Fi. Numerous on-site facilities include a buffet-style restaurant, a bar, a marketplace, and a playground with play structures and table tennis, but there's no pool. Prices are low, but watch out for extra cleaning fees, towel rentals, and costs for a club card.

Oyster Hotel Review

Villaggio Odissea

Scene

Heavily wooded campground popular with families and nature lovers

The Villaggio Odissea is an expansive campground in a wooded area that's surrounded by tall pine trees and Mediterranean brush. The property isn’t highly manicured, but has a rustic and natural look that enhances the authenticity of the camping experience. There's a front desk area in a small detached building just next to the property's large parking lot, but it lacks seating and is really just for checking in and out. Like most of Italy's many beachside camping villages, the Odissea attracts families, couples, and groups of friends looking for an affordable back-to-nature experience.

Location

Located in Cilento National Park Palinuro next to Mingardo Beach

This camping village is situated in the Cilento National Park Palinuro and borders Mingardo Beach. Although there isn’t much within walking distance, the camping village is just a short drive to many of the area’s attractions. It's a 10-minute drive to Cove Buondormire, 15 minutes to the Caves of Palinuro, and 20 minutes to the Marina di Camerota. The WWF Oasis Bussento Caves are a half-hour drive away and the Bay Infreschi takes about 40 minutes. The Velia Ruins are 50-minutes away and both the statue of Christ the Redeemer (Cristo Redentore) and the Pollino National Park take about 90 minutes to reach. Naples and the Naples Airport are two and a half hours from the property by car.
