Camping Mansueto is one of a number of caravan sites in the duty-free town of Livigno. Regular readers will recall that we had stayed in Livigno in September 2015. The site we tried first – Camping Mansueto – wanted 30 euro per night, so we went elsewhere. Anyway, this time of year is low season – the ski season is over and the summer season had yet to begin, so we able to get a place at Camping Mansueto for twenty euro per night.
Worth mentioning, we had no bother pitching as the site was quiet. Had the site been busy, a motorhome over 7.5 metres or so long would struggle to pitch here. The photograph shows the front end of the van encroaching on to the site roads. Consequently, during busy periods, pitching in this manner is not possible.
On site facilities at Camping Mansueto include the following.
- Shower/toilet facilities – token required for a shower
- Motorhome service point
- Pot washing area
- All neat, well laid out hard stands
- Electric hook up – three amps only
- Pleasant views
The site is within easy walking distance of the town centre. Noteworthy of a mention, there is a free bus service running around Livigno and the local communes.
We asked the receptionist about a place to eat and were directed to a new pizzeria called “Real” – this is literally a couple of minutes from the site. We had two mains, two deserts, two coffees, a brandy and two bottles of wine for under fifty euro!
There isn’t a website for the campsite, but this Italian link offers more information.
One drawback with Livigno relates to the access to the town. This difficulty led to the town being given duty-free status in order to help the local economy. During this visit, diesel was 0.74 euro per litre, Smirnoff was seven euro per litre. Note that there are restrictions on the amount of shopping you can legally purchase. As a result of these restrictions, checks are made at the “border”.
