Back in the Netherlands, we fondly reminisce about our stay at the campsite with Karin and Kars. A beautiful location, stunning vistas, a refreshing stream near the campsite, and two owners who prioritize hospitality and conviviality. Especially the delightful food and drinks at the long table, accompanied by enjoyable and surprising conversations, and concluding with a limoncello or hazelnut liqueur, are etched in our memories. Karin and Kars, it was 10 fantastic days!

We had a wonderful week at your B&B this summer. Even during the busiest time of the year, you can find tranquility with you! Beautiful location, lovely renovated rooms. Super welcoming and helpful! We are very satisfied with the service provided and the enjoyable conversations. A delicious, extensive breakfast with a view of the valley, the opportunity to join the tasty group dinners where you could also get to know the other guests, and the bar/terrace where you could quietly enjoy the warm day in the evening. The river was also a nice and refreshing place to be. The combination of the two connecting rooms was ideal with our two little ones and highly recommended! Kars and Karin, you’re doing a great job, keep it up!! Many greetings, and hopefully, see you again! Lisa, Matthias, Larissa, and Andreas.

We had two delightful days at Kars and Karin’s. On the first day, we were immediately invited to join a 7-course dinner, allowing us to meet several other guests. It was incredibly enjoyable and (more than) delicious. Both the campsite and the bed and breakfast look beautiful. An additional highlight is the cozy bar with delightful wines, a perfect place to unwind at the end of the day. In short, a place to fall in love with and cherish in our memories.

During our road trip with the bus camper, we unexpectedly ended up in Barbaia. We were warmly welcomed by Karin and Kars. The idyllic farmhouse, the tranquility of the campsite, beautiful surroundings, and the sweet, friendly campsite guests made for a delightful week. Never before have we stayed in one place with the camper for a whole week. That says enough… The icing on the cake was the delicious food that Karin cooked. Thank you very much, dear Karin and Kars! You made sure that our first encounter with Italy was fantastic and now holds a special place in our hearts. Good luck, and we will definitely be back! ❤️

What an amazing week I experienced at the Barbaia campsite. The welcome was very warm and hospitable, the meals by Karin were excellent, and the maintenance of the buildings and lawns by Kars was impeccable. The delicious wines flowed abundantly. Surrounded by such quality, guests also behaved impeccably. Unforgettable!

We were seeking tranquility after two weeks of traveling through France and Italy. Found this tranquility at Barbaia. Friendly reception, beautiful location. Enjoyed cooling off in the river, and every other day, we were treated to a delicious meal prepared by Karin. A fantastic stay and highly recommended. We’ll definitely add this place to our favorites.

Five nights at Barbaia, DELIGHTFUL! The campsite: small, fine, fully equipped, and beautifully situated. After a warm and enthusiastic welcome, you immediately feel at home. Add to that the beautifully renovated farmhouse, and your stay couldn’t be better. The idyllic small river behind the campsite provides a pleasant cooling effect, and from late afternoon, you can visit the lovely little bar where, apart from the camaraderie with Karin, Kars, and the guests, you can find good wines and delicious food. Insider Tip: Karin’s authentic dishes are delicious; seize the opportunity if you get it! The location is excellent and a great base for exploring the beautiful surroundings or simply doing nothing at all. In the small villages nearby, you can find everything you need for groceries. This was an excellent camping spot for us, and we had a great time. The hospitality of Karin and Kars was the icing on the cake! Grazie Mille and until next time.

The hospitality, the cozy evenings at the long dining table, our chat at the bar will stay with us for a long time! The peace and space really did us good. Your energy in ensuring everyone’s enjoyment during these hot summer days is admirable! For us, it was a superb start to our vacation in Italy. We wish you continued success with your beautiful spot under the Italian sun!

Well….where do we begin, what shall we write? It’s essentially a summary of the reviews already written, all equally positive. And that is certainly deserved by Karin, Kars, and Niek. What wonderful, hardworking people. Niek, in the bar, is also so pleasant and interested in the guests. We stayed 4 nights at the campsite. Beautiful location, good facilities. Hospitality, conviviality, delicious food, and lovely people. Sharing a table with other guests, under the pergola, or in the bar led to enjoyable and beautiful conversations. For the first time in Italy, and ending up here, what more could you ask for. We had a fantastic time and will definitely be back. Thanks a million! Love, Peter and Andrea.

What a warm welcome and how genuinely hospitable and hardworking you all are – Kars, Karin, and your son Niek. So warm and genuinely interested, you create such a welcoming and cozy place to be. We stayed at the campsite – wonderfully quiet, with a beautiful view and a refreshing river nearby. Having a car is very convenient. The supermarket is about an 11-minute drive in Cortemillia, where there is a delightful Italian restaurant. If you love tranquility, space, and delicious food prepared by the hostess in Italian style (eating outside at a long table), then this is the place to be. Thank you for your thoughtfulness (when our cooler broke and we were a bit panicked) and for the wonderful conversations. Wishing you all the success!
