Self-catering holidays are a wonderful way of enjoying affordable recreational time, particularly, in destinations such as Italy, where the high cost-of-living means that hotel accommodation can be very pricey. Eurocamp, the specialists in luxury camping holidays, have high quality campsites located throughout mainland Italy and its islands. One of Eurocamp‘s most popular regions in Italy is Lake Garda, in northern Italy, where it has 13 campsites to choose from.
Lake Garda is an ideal location for family holidays, since there is plenty to keep holidaymakers of all ages entertained, particularly, if they enjoy the outdoors and the thought of making the most of scenic Lake Garda’s natural beauty.
Getting to the region is also easy, and a fly-drive package, the simplest of all, with Lake Garda being only a leisurely two-hour drive, at most, from airports in Venice, Verona and Milan. Those who prefer the less expensive self-drive option for their family holidays will enjoy a breathtakingly beautiful 750-mile drive through France, Belgium, Germany and Switzerland.
Self-driving from home to Lake Garda allows the flexibility of stops along the way, as well as the ability to pack more home comforts, which is ideal for the budget-conscious and those with children to cater for. Once in the region, ample public transportation, including boats, buses and trains, make it easy to get around.
Eurocamp’s campsites really do boast every amenity to make Lake Garda holidays as fun and carefree as possible. With swimming pools, water activities, bicycles to hire, entertainment and dining options, a family really does not have to leave the campsite in order to have a great time. The spacious tents and logistical considerations, such as on-site laundry facilities, a supermarket, WiFi access and ample bathrooms, mean that the Eurocamp experience really is camping at its most luxurious.
When in Lake Garda, visitors should not miss these top three attractions:
- Gardaland Amusement Park and Seal Life Aquarium is Italy’s largest and most popular theme park, and Forbes magazine placed it among its top five amusement parks in the world. Situated on the south-eastern banks of the lake, the space and fantasy-themed park offers plenty of rides and attractions to keep everyone in the family entertained.
- Accessible from the town of Garda by a footpath Punta di San Vigilio has two public beaches either side of a luxury resort. The most popular is Baia dell Sirene, with cafes and play areas to ensure a relaxing day of fun at the beach.
- No trip to Lake Garda is complete without a visit to the summit of 6,000 feet Monte Baldo. Whether visitors take the Monte BaldoFunivia to the top, or are brave enough to cycle up, the breathtaking views from the top are not to be missed.
