La Bassotta is a villa located in a quiet neighborhood in the middle of Valgandino.
It’s an ideal support point for discovering the province of Bergamo and for sightseeing, enjoying typical food, hiking and climbing.
We are just a few minutes from the old village of Gandino (with its Basilica and Museum), 15 minutes from Monte Farno (with its scenic trails) and from the small city of Clusone, 30 minutes from the city of Bergamo, the amazing mountain of Presolana and the Iseo Lake.
If you aspire to an eco-friendly lifestyle, or if you are interested in permaculture, sociocracy and the Transition Towns movement, at La Bassotta we can talk about it for a long time...
And if you are a climber, within half an hour you will find dozens of crags, and I can offer you many useful tips...
There are other villas around us and two closed-end narrow streets with little traffic.
In the garden you can find sun and shade and enjoy a nice view on the mountains.
You can put your tent wherever you want in our garden, use the porch with chairs and tables. There is also one place for one camper VW T5 or similar (please notice that the access gate is 2,40m). The parking area for cars and minivans is not next to the tents' meadow but connected to it by a staircase.
The sanitary facilities
There is a small indipendent always open building with WC, sink and solar shower (hot water only when it is sunny!)
Chairs and small tables under the porch, two deckchairs with umbrella, power sockets in the toilet room and under the porches, extension.
Sightseeing, hiking and climbing in the surroundings. MTB and paragliding on Monte Farno. Sports center with indoor and outdoor pool at 2 Km.
You can taste a special pizza ("La Spinata"), made from a local variety of corn, in a nearby restaurant in Gandino. Possibility to visit small organic farms in the surroundings and to buy directly their products.
Bus-stop at 300 meters, rail station and Bergamo airport at 30 minutes with transfer possibility.
I read e-mails once a day and I don't live with a mobile phone in my hand :-) So don't expect an immediate response to every message you send me, please! Thanks for understanding.
Two-person tent available with supplement.
- Bar / Restaurant
- Canoe / Kayak
- Cultural visits

Our stay went very well. Gandino is beautiful. Gloria gave us great tips for visiting the surrounding area. We recommend it!
Simply fantastic experience. Mrs. Gloria was very welcoming and helpful and the stay went beyond our wildest expectations. The grounds are perfect with various more or less shaded areas and, depending on the time of year, even the possibility to use the outdoor pool. Toilets clean and available even if early morning hot water is not possible.
Excellent, friendly welcome in perfect French, but we didn't have much time to explore the city as we were in transit.
Sanitary/shower facilities a little lacking in privacy in my opinion, swinging door (I was traveling with my daughter).
Perhaps a little expensive for the services provided, but that's probably due to the tourist area.
Access conditioned by the size of the vehicle.
Thanks for the advice on the pizzeria.
Thank you very much for your welcome, advice and kindness.
Gloria is very welcoming and gives good advice for visiting the surrounding area. Her garden is very pleasant and perfect for spending a few days in the Gandino area.
I spent three nights in Gloria's tent. It's a lovely place, and so is she and her sister! They speak very good French and English. There's everything you need to wash up and rest in privacy. Even without a car, it's possible to go hiking or walking in the villages. Don't hesitate to ask their advice.
Prices ultimately comparable to those of camping sites, but with less comfort. Loss of contact with the locals due to crowding.
Gloria was very welcoming and kind during our stay.
The only downside is that you have to arrive before sunset, otherwise it's a cold shower ????????
A top night! Lovely host and very attentive, it was a pleasure to chat with her! The view from the garden is superb, as is the house, and as a bonus, the village is adorable! I recommend 100% and we will return with pleasure!
We had a very short stay with Gloria. She was friendly and smiling. We pitched our camping tents in her large garden where we enjoyed a beautiful view of the village. The toilets are separate from the house, which we found quite comfortable as it gave us more privacy. All in all, it was a great experience. Highly recommended
Our time at Gloria's home was a super nice experience of our bikepacking trip! She is a great host and just a lovely person (& also her sister). She was incredibly nice and gave great tips on what to do in the area. We felt very comfortable and were happy to be staying in her garden. It was calm and being able to use a part of the terrasse was great.
Thank you Gloria for making our journey through Italy even nicer :)
Very nice stay!
Gloria is hyper convenient, helpful and give very good advices.
We had very good moments there.
Thank you also to Gloria's sister (sorry I forgot the name) for our interesting talks.
A good place for a night or two. But a bit expensive.
Very nice stay at Gloria ! This stay has totally met our expectations. The place and the region are splendid... Gloria is a beautiful person, very discreet and very interesting, she gives us a lot of ideas for visits and walks... I would have stayed longer! I hope to come back. In any case if I pass by there again I will stop there...
A big thank you !!!
Go there without hesitation !!!
Delighted with the stay in Gandino at Gloria's. Only positive things.
* Gloria is attentive, warm and of very good advice. A precious help for the good progress of the stay.
* Restaurants, walks, tips ... she is there!
* Ideal location to go around the city (Iseo, Bergamo, beautiful villages, mountain hiking...). We stayed for a week and it was perfect.
* Very pleasant site, with clean sanitary facilities and shelter in case of rain or high temperatures. In height with a view. A place to recharge your batteries in a quiet place, with all amenities nearby.
* The region is nice, a little outside the tourist spots. In return, the local contacts are authentic and a great experience.
Thanks again to Gloria and her sister for the absolute success of this stay. Rich exchanges and discussions included. A perfect choice and delighted children too. We highly recommend. See you soon.
We spent great time at Gloria's House. She gave us some advice to discover the area, she was available and really nice to us and our children. Some other campers were present at the same time but it was not a problem her garden is pretty big. Thank you for everything! Pierre Charlotte Astrid & Arsène
We are very satisfied with our stay at Gloria's, who has a sense of welcome and very good advice. Calming and serene state of mind. This stopover also allowed us to make beautiful meetings between campers.

We had a great stay at Gloria's. She was very welcoming, and very helpful in giving advice about the area. Her yard is spacious (there were 3 other tents plus ours). It was very nice to have a toilet and shower for the campers, and a small covered patio also, with electricity. We ended up staying an extra night.
Thank you gloria a small appreciated stop. We were able to make ourselves beautiful and leave with clean clothes. All this with a great welcome and a smile. Good continuation
A big thank you Gloria, for your welcome. And to Lucile and Catherine. We loved sharing this time with you. I highly recommend it.
See you soon I hope.

This was our first experience with homecamper and we had a wonderful time. This is the kind of vacation for us .
Gloria is an outstanding, inspirational, extremely helpful and unobtrusive person. The place is suitable for walking sports. The garden is very nice and very clean with extra attention to the environment, which is an extra value for us. Toilets very clean . Suitable for young couples. A POSITIVE EXPERIENCE.
We had such a great stay at Gloria's.
Gloria is an amazing host. Very welcoming, accommodative. She is attentive to your needs and is able to give you advice. We let ourselves guide by our moods and the weather and were always very pleased with Gloria's suggestions.
The garden spot will provide you with beautiful early morning polyphonic church bells, bird sounds and some frog sounds.
If you love coming back to the essence of life and letting yourself drift, its a lovely place to meet people, go on hikes and enjoy the slow life.
Great! Thank you Gloria for the welcome! ken ar c'hentañ!
Gloria is a welcoming host, available and proposes good addresses for local producers.
The equipment and the terrace area are very functional and pleasant.
We thank Gloria
Have a nice day
Gloria offers a discreet and quality welcome.
Very nice and quite place. Gloria is very nice. We spent one night on her garden and we enjoy it.
Thank you, Gloria
Very nice place in a beautiful area, well situated for mountain walks and close to the lake of Iseo. Great welcome, Gloria is a very friendly person with whom you can have interesting discussions.
Very pleasant stay with Gloria who is a fantastic host!
Gloria did everything to make our stay pleasant.
In addition to the perfect maintenance of the garden and the sanitary facilities, she gave us many precious advices to visit the surroundings (cities, hikes, climbing) and discover the local products.
Don't hesitate to stop by for a few days!
It was very pleasant to sleep in a tent in Gloria's garden. The setting and the view are charming. Gloria and her friend are welcoming, friendly and have very good advice. Indeed, this part of Italy is full of sports and cultural activities, but public transportation is limited, so it is better to have a car. Thanks again for this stay and see you soon.
We stayed 2 nights at Gloria's, the setting is beautiful, very nice view on the mountains! Gloria gave us very good advice to visit the surroundings. Thank you for everything!
Gloria was very friendly and it was nice to comunicate to her.
It was quiet and beautiful place to stay.
Thanks a lot
Gloria's welcome was perfect and her kindness is genuine.
We changed our plans and stayed less time than we had planned because we missed the lake district so much.
Thanks to gloria. Ideal point of fall for visits and activities of full nature, and gloria can advise
Gloria is lovely and carring. We had warm welcome. She gave us handy instructions in French that were very useful. You can pitch your tent wherever you want in her garden. There is a patio with a roof with a table and chairs. Toilets and shower are in a small shed in the garden as well. She gave us the keys to the gate so we can go out and about. We were able to park our car in the roofed car garage. There you can charge your electronics. They were others guest with a camper but on the order side of the property, we barely saw them. We will definitely come back if we return in the area.
Gloria was a tremendous host. She was very friendly and helpful with great recommandations about the area. Her place is very quiet and clean. We can absolutely recommend her.
Gloria and Lucie are very kind and welcoming but also excellent tourist guides of their region. The place is beautiful and quiet, without any opposite.
The stay was perfect.
very nice situation Gloria and Lucy speak perfectly French or English and are very nice (they offered me tea and cookies at lunch) you can park a motorcycle or car under a large covered place in front of the garages I stayed one night but there are plenty of walks to do.
Gloria received us very well, unfortunately the end of September is not favourable to have sun and thus ... a hot shower.
Nevertheless we will keep a very good memory of our passage.
We had very good time at Gloria's place ! She's a very nice person, and will help you find thins to do around.
I recommand this Gamping !!
Very nice stay in Gloria's garden! She welcomed us very happy and gave us Tipps on where to have good pizza! There is even a garage for cars!
It was a really nice vacation at Glorias
She and her sisters are very welcoming hosts and they know the best secret places to go
Our personal favorit was the view of "san defendente" and the way at "val vertova"
The place is definitely great and there is so much to experience near the place
It feels like being part of their family for the time of the vacation
We can definetly recommend it
If we are again in this area we wil see us again

Thank you, you have informed us well and have been available to welcome us. The welcome was perfect! Thank you
We were welcomed by a charming host. She speaks French well and for us it was really a plus. She was accompanied by Lucie who also speaks French very well. That helped us to understand the walks that she presented us who speaks French well and for us it was really a plus. She was accompanied by Lucie who also speaks French very well. That helped us well to understand the walks that she proposed us. In particular our escapade towards san defense where the place must remain secret to avoid the tourists ????. Thanks to them. Too top. We continue our journey. Thank you
Beautiful place with a perfect host! I recommend if you want to visit this area.
...and Gloria play guitar very well :)

We had a great few days stay with a fantastic host. Gloria ensured we were settled, happy and had everything we needed for our stay. Her local knowledge of what to do and see in the area was invaluable. We would not hesitate to recommend staying with Gloria.
So nice !
We enjoyed our stay and the area !
Gloria is a great host
