- We had an overall fantastic time at Camp Eden with Eurocamp, the site is placed in a beautiful location, with relative easy access to the area.
In terms of the site itself It seemed luck of the draw where you van is, we went for the classic, which was great for the three of us, although no aircon so I had to go and buy 2 more fans, as there was only one provided. We had a central cabin, without view, but with a good decked area, but some lucky families had perfect views across the lakes and mountains, I guess you need to ask or book early..
It’s a real family site, with no noise after 10:30pm, at night the views are even more breathtaking!
There are pools at the top and the bottom of the site – both are great. There are a few fun slides for the kids (and adults), but just be careful with the kids running around as our daughter took a tumble on stairs which were really slippy, which in the UK, would have gone through the health and safety checks..
You can wear trunks, not obligatory to wear speedos although you do have to wear a swimming cap which they sell at the shop. The lake is great also for swimming and Eden has access to the Lake which is only about 100ft from the bottom of the camp, with a pontoon with great diving access.
On site the couriers were very helpful, we also met a Geordie couple who were maintaining the site – they were really very friendly and helpful and ensuring that we had everything we needed, big thumbs up!
Try and access the area from the A4 through the main road SS45bis nearer Brescia, not the one coming through Desenzano SPBS572, it’s a very slow road and it’s worth doing the extra miles to save you 20 mins.
If leaving or arriving early at Eden – park your car outside, as the gates were closed between 11pm and 7am and some families almost missed flights.
There’s loads to do in the area – Salo is stunning, so is Simione, in fact the whole of the Lakes are amazing and we’re missing it already!
There is a good supermarket in Salo called Simply where you can get everything you need.
We went to Gardaland – took about an hour to get there and was open from 10am to 11pm! It was a good park with something for all ages (we have a daughter 8)
We went to Verona for the day – took about an hour and a half .
We also did Venice and back in a day, up and out at 5:30am and back for 10pm, was about a 2.5 hour journey at a decent speed, and we crammed in all the sites!
We also booked a boat for the day with Garda Boat hire , again, amazing fun! It was about 185 Euro’s for a day for a 40Hp boat, which did some speed!
Overall, an amazing family holiday, would highly recommend and would love to visit the area again
