A lovely family break that everyone enjoyed - thanks Eurocamp. Top tips: of you have young children, hire the rumble trucks (each one seats two children) as it avoids all the whining when moving around the camp. We even took ours into Peschiera and were impressed that there wasn't a single step to negotiate between our front door and the town centre. We booked late this time so had no choice, but if we were booking again in mid-summer I wouldn't choose anything without air-conditioning.
The campsite was fantastic and week run. The eurocp staff were goid although we saw very little if them as they always seemed very busy unless we sought them out. We relied on the kids camp couriers who were excellent and very helpful. Our only downside was our accommodation, while adequate seemed very 'tired' and not that clean. In that sense we felt that it was overpriced & not value for money.
We have now been to Bella Italia about 10 times and each time has been for lengthy periods of between 2 and 4 weeks. The Park is getting a bit tired - broken beds at the pool, small sites, less and less entertainment, park facilities.
This was our 7th year at Bella Italia, and will probably be our last. Over the years the campsite has become busier and busier. Being adjacent to Lake Garda, and only a 10 minute walk into Peschiera, it is in a prime location. However the camp site is becoming more and more crowded, and the cabins are so very close together. Many of the Eurocamp cabins are very old, and in need of replacement. The couriers are all young, and there are so many of them, that any request just seems to get forgotten. A small thing but we were in need of a light bulb for the shower, but after 2 weeks it had still not been replaced. The pools are very crowded, and many of the loungers at the pool were broken or split. The supermarket is very busy in the mornings, with queues snaking out of the entrance waiting to get in. The behaviour of some of the older teenagers just outside the camp on the lake side is worrying with excessive drinking and late evening skinny dipping. Never ever arrive on a Saturday. The queues to check in are enormous, with people waiting 3 hours in the heat of summer.
