The Lake Garda Touring Site

Lake Garda is considered by many as one of the most stunning locations in Italy. Known for its crystal clear waters and awe inspiring views it is a must visit location when you're touring the northern Italy. Rumour has it that even Mr. Ocean's 11 himself George Clooney has a house on the lake. After a quick google I can confirm that George does have a lake house here. It's ok we are on first a name basis now.
The site itself sits right on the banks of the Lake Garda so you have a view that makes buying an extremely expensive camera more than worth it. With a circumference of 160 kilometres the site has a perfect location to take in the beauty. Our plots were water front so we got to see it all right from our Bailey Pegasus.
Onsite there is restaurant/pizzeria that service quite a large menu of salad, pizza, pasta and main courses with a Italian wine list that would make Pavarotti blush. Not to mention world class home made tiramisu!
For supplies the site has a mini market that serves fresh warm pastries in the morning along with a lot of Italian goods and a hand full of your normal day to day products. The good thing about sites in Italy is they have a lot of local products so you get to taste the real Italy. And if you have a sweet tooth I highly recommend trying a cannoli or some Baci and Venchi chocolate.
Both pet and child friendly, not that I put the two in the same category, so you do not have to worry if you want to bring the little ones or pets with you. An onsite pool, with plenty of bed chairs and seating, will no doubt keep the kids entertained for hours on end. You could even pop to the onsite gift shop and buy a couple of rubber rings and make the most of it yourself. After all it's yours holiday too.
Of an evening you can sit at the lakeside bar and enjoy an espresso or the Peroni red label beer that's is pretty much only sold in Italy and is quite different from the Peroni Nastro Azzurro we get in the UK.
Just a stones throw from the site is the local town where you can visit the castles, cafés, pizzerias and my personal favourite the tradition Italian bakery. With plenty of shops and things to see and do you could happily spend a whole week, or two, on the banks of the lake and touring the town sipping espresso and eating pasta and pizza.
The site boasts all touring accommodation as well as cottages, statics and camping areas. So this site is open to any and every keen tourer.
