A great stay

Fornella
We were here (2 adults + older kids) for 9 nights with our 8m twin axle on a premium pitch. We had plenty of room for me to spin the Caravan around + with full awning (dont worry there was no sides in it) & my 4x4. Food wise the restaurant/ bar (both good food) is there or Lidl and plenty of others down the road 10+ mins away & youll need that for water etc.. anyway. As has been said there is a huge on site shop & where you need to joining the Q at 8 am (breads,croissants etc..) Pools - there are 2 - go early or late to miss the busy hours & the Lake of course. I takes about 4 hrs to drive round. .Dont miss Sirminoni as the ice creams are magic & the main Desenzano market - its huge . Its also a good place to catch the train (book via treiitalia before you go for cheapness) to Venice & theres a free Car Park there.We tend to go a see whats out & about evey day so apart from eating & sleeping were not the much Steve

HUGE SITE

Fornella
We stayed here in June for a week. Finding the site was ok, but the last bit is rather hairy as it is down very narrow roads, also I counted 20 roundabouts from the motorway. Reception staff very welcoming and we were issued with the mandatory bracelets to be worn at all times. We had booked a super pitch, which was very large with water and drainage. Facilities very clean and were regularly serviced. This is a massive site and it took us at least 3 days to find where the dog beach was. We ate in the restaurant which is overlooking the lake which was lovely, but you do need to book as it gets very busy. Wifi was very good, but not cheap. Unheated pool was lovely and OH and I used this a lot; we did try the heated pool and it was too hot! We did buy a couple of bits from the onsite shop which was moderately priced. The site is very keen on recycling and they actually had a bin monitor - we did actually give him some cold drinks to cool him down!

A nice holiday park

Fornella
We have stayed on this site on numerous occasions but sadly it will be our last. Like many it has lots of mobile homes,log cabins etc all having the prime pitches. Water points for campers are few and far between. Staff not very helpful. Toilet blocks spotlessly clean but a long walk unless you pay for premium pitches. Good supermarket and restaurant on site. Our pitch was surrounded by noisey holiday homers. Incredibly expensive. There are much better and reasonably priced CAMPING sites in area.

A Good All Round Site

Fornella
Stayed here from 31st May to 5th. June. Beautifully located site on the lakeside. Nice walks from the site. Excellent toilet and shower facilities, well maintained and clean. Good shop, catering mainly for German and Dutch customers. A German holiday started on June 3rd and the site went from 50% occupancy to 110% overnight. Excellent swimming pools with good entertainment for kids. The restaurant is really good with beautiful views over the lake. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We went on a boat trip to Isola de Garda and were shown around the island by a charming young woman who was a member of the Cavazza family who own and live on the island. They also own the Fornella site a much of the surrounding land and olive groves. We met this woman again in the evening at the restaurant on the site. Her husband runs the restaurant. Although this is an expensive site it is good value for the quality of the facilities especially compared to current CC prices.

Beautiful sunset from the restaurant

Fornella
Very large site, we stayed in May 17, and only the main pool was open. The restaurant was open from 6:30pm onwards although the bar was open all day. Lots of tents, lodges, mobiles onsite too (like most Italian sites). The reception staff were very efficient, friendly, knowledgeable and gave us a "welcome" pack of leaflets. Plenty to do in the area. We arrived and were given a choice of pitches (it wasn't too busy as we were early season). We parked up on the left of the entrance as per signage, this allows you the freedom to take your time and pick a pitch. We plumped for one at the top of the site, as it had plenty of shade if not the views - even though there was a road alongside, we hardly heard any traffic. The other pitches were less shady, but did have views looking north towards the mountains. If you wanted a "lake-side" pitch you would have to book this separately as these were not "super" pitches and seems quite small and tight to get into. The lake location was just perfect, the site is fairly large and quite hilly. Washing machines were 6 euros and the other facilities were good too, although don't forget to take toilet paper before entering the cubicles. Plenty of recycling facilities. Our pitch was large, however we did need the motormover to manoeuvre due to hedges and trees. The restaurant was very reasonably priced, especially the house wine at 5 euros for a half litre. We ate here twice and thoroughly enjoyed it both times, although there seemed to be lots of waiters but only the waitress was actually taking orders etc. Maybe the others were bar staff. I had the "mixed meats" and this was the best meal of our trip. No need to order rolls/bread as they had plenty in the well stocked and friendly shop.
