Perfect, peaceful, rural getaway
We spent two peaceful nights at Giovanni's land. Our objective was to get out of town and spend some time somewhere very quiet where we could get in a few bike rides and not do anything else. When we arrived, we were greeted very warmly by the hosts, given guidance setting up and a tour of the land. And, he went out of his way to make sure we had a picnic table at our site. For the rest of the weekend Giovanni gave us our privacy.
His place is rural and very peaceful, which is exactly what we wanted. Much of the property is treed with second growth cedar, hemlock and some fir. There are cleared campsites and a larger (and beautiful) cleared orchard, garden, and cabin area where the host stays. Because our vehicle has limited clearance, we were in the campsite closest to the deadend gravel road but it was still very quiet; during the day, we might have heard one car every two hours at most. There was no one else there when we were, but the sites are private so I don't think it would have affected us much if there were. There is a very clean, rustic outhouse and a hand pump for water. The location is perfect for cyclists who want to gravel ride or road ride (a few - I don't know the exact number - kms up a gravel road but I had no trouble with this section on my road bike). The whole vibe reminds me of Vancouver Island 30+ years ago and is the delightful antithesis of a provincial campsite where you are stacked in with your neighbours like sardines. Of course, you have to be willing to go without a shower if you don't have a camper or a van, but it's well worth it.
Our trip was a last minute decision that turned out to be a great choice and we definitely hope to go back soon.
