Camping Hermitage is set in the hills overlooking the spa town of Merano. Access to the site is easy, just a few minutes from the SS38. The campsite is within the grounds of a hotel. Consequently, guests for the campsite and hotel share some of the common facilities such as free wifi and the sun terrace.

Well laid out pitches of various sizes

Pitches come in various shapes and sizes. As a result, staff allocate pitches upon check in. This is a fair system. Large units are allocated large pitches. Smaller units are alllocated a smaller pitch. After all, a large unit cannot fit on a small pitch!

This pitch is a snug fit for the 8.11 metre Bessacarr

Pitches feature electric hook up, fresh water tap and grey disposal

A bus stop – a few minutes walk from the site – runs to Merano. A day ticket presently costs €4.00.

There is a pleasant walk through woodland to the “Meran 2000 ski lift”. Dogs are welcome on site and this walk makes for an enjoyable stroll for our friends on four legs!


Camping hermitage pizza

Great value supper at Camping Hermitage.

The hotel restaurant is available for campsite guests to use. We sampled the pizzeria and for a bill of €23.00, we enjoyed two large pizzas, wine and sparkling water. Given the location, this is excellent value for money.
