A delightful stay

We stayed here at the end of August for two nights en route to Southern Germany and we loved it. The site is large with a lot of cabins and lodges and I suspect in the busiest times of year it will feel crowded but although there were still lots of families with children around it was the end of the school holidays and the site was not full. Many pitches and lodges were empty and we had a lovely pitch with views to die for. The site is high on a steep hill above Gulpen and it is well designed with tiers so in our motorhome we were right at the top with nothing directly in front of us. The hill might be a challenge for walkers or cyclists but our ebikes were ideal. Nice cycling around the campsite too. The staff are delightful, friendly and helpful and the site is well kept with good, clean facilities. The showers etc were cleaned very early in the morning so particularly spotless for early risers. The pool is also sparkling with plentiful sunbeds. There is a nice shop and cafe/snack bar/ bar and fresh bread and rolls in the morning. Easy access from Zeebrugge made this a perfect stopover for us and Gulpen is a very pretty town with lovely cafes, bars and restaurants and a well stocked supermarket. You are given a ticket that gives you free access to a swimming pool with all sorts of fancy attractions in Gulpen but we didn’t use it. I imagine for children it is paradise, certainly looked inviting, and there’s an easy path downhill from the campsite. We plan to go back and explore more of the area as there is public transport to Maastricht and Aachen but I would avoid school holidays again. We loved it though.

A High Point in Holland

Not all of Holland is flat! This lovely site is situated in an interesting and possibly overlooked part of the low countries. The site is well maintained by the staff who were always very helpful. The towns of Maastricht, Valkenburg and Aachen are all within easy reach and well worth a visit. However, bare in mind that Aachen is over the border and like many German towns, you will now require a Low Emissions Zone sticker for your windscreen if you want to take your car in. These can be ordered on line but will take two or three weeks to obtain by post. Great facilities and restaurant. We only stopped here for 5 nights so may return some time to see a bit more of the area.

Gem on a hill.

Family friendly gem on the top of a hill, modern facilities at reception, good onsite activities ( kids club if required in high season ). Good pitches but don’t underestimate the steep incline on the approach road. Nice local town with plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from. A steep but steady walk that takes roughly 20 minutes either by steps or gravel path. Nice modern bar and restaurant onsite and shop has takeaway pizzas, chips, drinks, fresh bread and croissants every day and most essentials in the shop. Nice area and good for those who like road or MTB cycling.

Great site for a short stay but neighbouring outfits likely to be close to you in high season

Our final site for five nights in October and we had superb weather to compliment the views from our pitch of the South Limburg countryside. The other members review gives good advice about access and accessibility on site. The site is actually on top of a large flat plateau which overlooks the town of Gulpen and whilst there are many excellent paths down to the town, it is a steep climb back and that is not what you might expect from Holland.The toilet blocks are either small modern ones or a larger older building whch was fine and clean, but no sink plugs and both the ladies and the mens part link at the front so it easy to end up in the wrong side! The site restaurant is good although the menu choice a little restricted. If you have not been then a visit to nearby Valkenburg is highly recommended. Yes it is a bit commercialised but the centre, restaurants, castle and caves all make for a great day out. A different part of the Netherlands and easily accessible from the Channel ports.

A highly recommended addition to the Club's European Sites Selection

We stayed on this site for 8 nights in April 2018 and found it ideal for exploring S Limburg. We recommend following the directions on the site’s own website, leaving the N278 in the village at the Mosaqua (swimming pool) sign and following Landsraderweg up to the site. But whichever route you follow, the last 3kms require care when towing as the lanes are all narrow and uphill. There is a reason why the site is called Panorama Camping! The English speaking reception staff are welcoming and a mine of local information. The site is laid out on a terraced hillside so do study the layout carefully before leaving reception as terraces are all dead ends, making for a difficult manoeuvre if you have to turn round, as we did! The special pitches are on a flat grassy terrace looking out over undulating countryside, quite unlike the other parts of the NL we have visited. The toilet blocks are modern and clean but given the terrain are either up or down serious flights of steps, which could be a problem for some members. The childrens’ play area and pool are at the top of the site next to the shop and bar/restaurant, so that the pitching area remains quiet. A network of walking and cycle routes are accessible directly from the site and there is a regular bus service to Maastricht and Aachen from the nearby village. This has an excellent Plus supermarket with free parking up to noon, and a swimming pool (guests get a free pass).
