There are two campsites in the Solenzara valley - this report is about the second one, you Ponte Grossu, 6 miles/10 km from Solenzara. The road up to this point is easily negotiable with a large caravan or motor home, but certainly do not attempt the Bavella Pass with a caravan. Access can be difficult with a large outfit at times, depending on how considerate people are parking their cars. (I had to ask the owner to ensure our exit was kept clear before we left). The site is alongside the river, with large bathing pools adjacent, and more up and down the valley, but there is no specific play area. Small children would need to be well supervised near the river. Site sanitary facilities are new and very high standard with plenty of unisex toilets and showers even when the site is full. Electricity is from a generator and is switched off between midnight and 06. 30, so remember to switch your fridge to gas overnight. No washing machine, no mobile signal, no wifi, and credit cards not accepted. Fees 25 euros a night 2 adults and caravan including electric in July 2013.

Pitches are varying size, demarcated with boulders with electric only to the higher terrace. The ground is sandy and some pitches would be too soft to hold tent/awning pegs very well. Despite the site being full every night it was very quiet, especially after 10pm when the canyoning leaders seemed to instantly settle down for the night.

There is a small bar/restaurant by reception, open till 9pm or later if there is demand. Also near reception is a canyoning activity booking centre - several others along the valley. This is probably the Ďmust doí activity in the valley, though we didnít, partly because the weather in July 2013 was very unreliable with violent thunderstorms every day, unfortunately. However, we did do couple of longish hikes from the Bavella pass - the one to the Paliri Hut is very rewarding, but quite strenuous. If you haven't booked itís best to arrive before noon. It seemed some motor homes were wild-camping in the big parking areas just past the site, but I donít know if this was legal.
