Camping Pelinos is situated on a hill slope and consists of multiple terraces and step paths.
The entrance and exit of the camping is a narrow steep and paved road. Motorhomes of all sizes can drive the camping up and down without any problem.
Guests with a caravan can bring the caravan to their pitch themselves. And if needed, on the day of depature, we can tow up your caravan with our jeep (4×4)
Camping Pelinos has limited number of pitches. Especially in May and June the caravan- and motorhome pitches are mostly fully booked.
In the high season this also counts for guests with a tent.
We recommend to announce your visit a few days in advance by sending us an e-mail. We only accept reservations for 2 nights and more.
