La Timpa International camp site is located on the Gulf of Catania on the east coast. The camping grounds higher up are set in an area dominated by lemon trees and typical mediterranean flowers.

La Timpa occupies a unique location: in a protected park (Park Timpa di Arcireale) at the foot of the imposing Mount Etna, Europe's largest active volcano. You can take the lift hewn out of solidified lava from the camp site to a special platform where you can sunbathe or enjoy the sea which is below you, and go to a terrace with a private beach furnished with top class free deckchairs and a hot shower. There is a playground for the children but they can also enjoy a game of table tennis or table football. There is also beach volleyball and bowling at La Timpa. You can enjoy Italian cuisine in the restaurant or pizzeria (open all year with splendid sea views): everything at La Timpa is based on friendliness and hospitality.

Acireale is well known for its annual Carnival parties. There is plenty to see in the vicinity; excursions by 4WD to the top of the 3323 metre high Etna are organised daily. You can also go to the top by cable car! In the lava caves just a few minutes from the site you can see the typical Sicilian puppetry folklore. The large harbour town of Catania is located just south of Acireale. Ferries from Naples or Reggio di Calabria (southern Italy) arrive here. A bit further away is the centuries old town of Syracuse, originally Greek, with remains of the many cultures that influenced the island. The coastal motorway offers a pleasant drive to Messina on Sicily's northern point.

*This accommodation cannot be booked from our own supply. We will ask the campsite if the accommodation is still available

It is possible to book accommodation on request. This means the accommodation is no longer directly available for booking from our supply. Often, Suncamp holidays can still arrange the accommodation for you by consulting the campsite. This process takes two to four working days.

As soon as we have heard from the campsite, we will inform you via e-mail or phone if your booking can be arranged. If your request is approved, the booking is definite and the terms and conditions apply. If there is no accommodation available and your request is denied, your reservation will automatically be cancelled.

Der Platz ist sehr schwer anzufahren und in einem sehr ungepflegten Zustand. Die Mobilheime sind alt uns nicht sauber. Zum Einkaufen muss man recht weit mit einem Fahrzeug sehr steil bergauf fahren. Einziger Pluspunkt: Der Blick aufs Meer, aber nur von der unteren Terrasse aus. Ein Aufzug fährt hinab zur kleinen Badestelle (Felsen). Für den Zustand des Platzes war der Preis in der Vorsaison viel zu hoch.

Sanitair is zeer vuil, er wordt niet gepoetst. Na een opmerking gemaakt te hebben bij de directie en de vraag om het sanitair te poetsen, werden we zeer onvriendelijk behandeld. Bij het binnenkomen kregen we een folder van de camping met een foto van een zwembad. Wij vroegen naar het zwembad maar dat was privé. Zwemmen is zowat onmogelijk aan de rotsen en van een strand was niet veel te zien. De mensen van het restaurant waren wel vriendelijk en hebben met de camping niets van doen. Mooie planten en bomen maar de faciliteiten zelf zijn zeer slordig. Jammer met een beetje goede wil en zorgen zou het er beter uit zien

Leider wird aus dem schönen Platz nur wenig gemacht, Reklamationen werden nur sehr zögerlich behandelt und Sauberkeit lässt sehr zu wünschen übrig. Eine Mitarbeiterin hat uns sehr gut betreut, so dass wir trotz allem 4 Wochen, wie geplant geblieben sind. Leider ist diese Kollegin nicht mehr da und wir können diesen Platz nicht wirklich empfehlen, auch wenn die Anlage sehr interessant aufgebaut ist.

Total ungepflegter Platz, Sanitäranlage 1 Woche nicht gereinigt, Teils unfreundliches Personal, Waschmaschine defekt, Keine Entsorgung für Wohnmobile, Entsorgung NUR für Cassettentoilette möglich, kein Brot am Platz, Brot erst um 10 Uhr im Ort zu kaufen

Mooi gelegen aan zee, rustig, mooi uitzicht

Zweigeteilter Platz. Nur der obere Teil liegt unter Zitronenbäumen, allerdings auch ohne den atemberaubenden Blick des unteren auf das Meer. Der untere Platzteil ist klein, eng und nur über eine sehr steile Zufahrt zu erreichen. Für Wohnmobile über 7,0 Meter nicht geeignet. Die hallenähnlichen in den Fels gehauenen Sanitäranlagen sind sehr großzügig aber schon stark abgenutzt. WC ohne Brillen, dafür aber warmes Wasser soviel das Herz begeht ohne lästige Jetons. Keine Ver-/Entsorgung. Das Süßwasser sollte man laut Platzbetreiber nur abgekocht verwenden. In der Nebensaison ist der Kiosk auf dem unteren Platzteil geschlossen und man kann auf der dazugehörigen Terrasse bei aufgehender Sonne auf der Felskannte hoch über dem Meer eine einmaliges Frühstückserlebnis genießen. Der Weg zu einer Badeplattform tief darunter führt über einen Tunnel und einen Aufzug nach unten. Der Gang ins Wasser ist gefährlich, weil sehr rutschig. Auf der Badeplattform ist wenig Platz und ab Mittag Schatten.

Lage auf unterster Terasse sehr schön, aber sehr wenig Platz. Als Ausgangspunkt für den Aetna und Catania ideal. Sanitäranlagen, 40 % davon defekt, während unserem Aufenthalt (5 Tage) nie gereinigt.
Spühltroge unbrauchbar. Es scheint, dass Camping untergeordnet ist gegenüber den vielen (Plastik)-Bungalows.
Wer vergab die 3 Sterne???
