Parc reviews

Parc highlights

  • Take a boat trip to Isola del Garda, the parc’s privately owned island

  • Explore authentic olive groves - they’re on your doorstep

  • Hire bikes and explore the stunning local area

Looking for your slice of authentic Italian adventure? Then why not give Fornella a whirl?

Nestled in beautiful olive groves, this is a superb, family-run parc set on stunning Lake Garda, with a typically Italian atmosphere and friendly English-speaking owners. Boat trips are organised to the nearby island they own, Isola del Garda. Bursting with legends and history, this is a place of rare and special beauty, making a memorable family day out. The parc itself is particularly popular with young families, thanks to two good pools, including one for kids and a new indoor play area, too. After a day sightseeing or spending time pool-side, why not sample the excellent restaurant, bar or pizzeria with lovely views overlooking the lake, which is perfect for swimming in and soaking up the warm, Italian sun. If you fancy some sightseeing, San Felice del Benaco is just a short drive away, where you can enjoy wine and olive oil tastings, and there are many other picturesque towns to explore around the lake. The parc even produce their own olive oil and arrange excursions on foot to their local olive oil farm, a great afternoon out.

      Fornella is a lovely campsite. It has a quiet, relaxed feel about it. The pools are great and not too busy.We always managed to get a sunlounger. The restaurant was good and the staff really friendly. The supermarket is adequate having all the basics, if lacking in variety. Car hire is expensive and Eurocamp were unable to tell us whether a car was needed or not. In the end we went without a car. We didn't miss the car, but we had to do a bit of walking. There is no ATM on the site and the nearest bank is in San Felice.Although OK only1km away it is up hill and there are no pavements for some of the way. Similarly to get to the ferry you need to walk to Porto Portese which takes 45 mins with a 6 year old. There is a little road train that goes to both of these places, but it is often full.
      You can book trips from the park to towns around the lake which is simpler than getting the ferry. Also the trip to Isola del Garda direct from the campsite is a must.
      Overall we enjoyed our holiday.

      The couriers were OK but didn't do anything to stand out, plus we asked for extra towels but they never appeared. The park is OK though everything closes for 2 h during the day, including the kids pool and supermarket! Accommodation was as advertised but the trailers were very close to each other so you are often overlooked by neighbours.
