Fattore Amico 2017 Italian passion

Fattore Amico is an Italian farm and vineyard stopover scheme similar to France Passion, both offering free overnight stays. Italy is, numerically, the third most motorhome friendly motorhome destination in Europe having 2000 overnight parking areas, see Area Sosta, and 505 vineyards and farms whose owners encourage motorhomers to stay on their land for free. Pitch up at a hosts property and you will meet the people who actually develop and manage the landscapes surrounding you. In most cases your hosts will be local producers who are passionate about what they do and nobody exudes that passion like an Italian artisan, so be ready for some fantastic evenings.

The Fattore Amico guidebook is multilingual, written in English, Italian, French, and German. There is also a multilingual key to the symbols on page 16. Regional maps identify the stopovers by number, so it is easy to find details of host sites.

Stop for 24 hours for free across Italy

There is no financial or commercial obligation between the members of Fattore Amico and the hosts. You will not be charged to stay, but clearly the sites have something to sell and you should support them when possible. You may genuinely not like the wine (or other produce) and are not obliged to buy, but the next person to visit may love it and buy a case, so it all works out in the end.

Directions

Directions to the participating farms and vineyards are also multilingual.

For example: From A5 exit Chatillon-St Vincent, SS26 in the direction of Aosta, after Km7; at Champagne Verrayes turn right, 3.5 km in the direction of Verrayes. Guided tour and excursions. Local products: jam.

GPS Coordinates are provided for every entry and are written in the following format: N 45.32909 E 11.67200

Code of Conduct

Members must adhere to the general rules, which are a mixture of courtesy and respect for others, as laid out in the code of conduct.

Common sense and courtesy are important. Please accept any restrictions imposed. Fattore Amico hosts are not providing the service of a campsite.

  • Arrive at the chosen site between 9.00am and 7.30pm. Visitors turning up in the middle of the night will not be welcome and some sites have gates that will be closed at night.
  • On arrival at the chosen site show the Fattore Amico membership card for the current year to the host. Being farmers, they are likely to be out working during the day. Don't worry, just park in the designated places and await their return. Hosts, for reasons of security, will only let identified members of Fattore Amico park overnight on their property.
  • Remember you are not a paying client, but a welcome guest. Be friendly, respect their wishes, and thank your host on leaving. Sometimes, either due to personal circumstances or because all the spaces are occupied, a host will be unable to accommodate visitors. In these circumstances you will have to visit an alternative farm or vineyard.
  • To avoid inconveniencing the work of your host park only in the areas indicated by them.
  • Fattore Amico hosts do not provide facilities for servicing motorhomes. So arrive with fresh water tanks full and waste tanks empty.
  • Fattore Amico hosts do not charge for staying overnight so do not expect to find campsite facilities. Do not use site toilets, water taps or drains without the host's permission. Never light fires or BBQs. The sites are working vineyards or farms, not children's playgrounds. Ensure your children are behaving and kept in sight. If you have a dog, please ask the host's permission before letting it off the leash. Sites that do not accept dogs are marked.
