“Extremely nice location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

The location of this campground is really great. If you have a boat this is a nice place. The pools are great. Because there was a noizy camper next to ours, we had an upgrade. We got a superior place, for no extra charges. Very helpfull staff! I want to go back!!!

Very nice campsite. Booked through Thomson Al Fresco.

Thomson cabin - very nice. Small but more than adequate. Air con was a godsend. In August it was HOT HOT HOT! Friendly Thomson reps had a few spare lilo's and games that really kept the kids happy. Good service.
Amenities - many look very new and really of a good standard. Toilet and shower blocks were pristine cleanliness
Beach - pebbly! but nice. family of ducks pootle about too
Restaurant - quiet at day, busy at night. pre-book to get a good table. prices reasonable. standard is OK. Pizza's are heaven. Woodfired oven, dough made from scratch on site. Take away and restaurant prices are the same.
Supermarket - small but good selection, very fairly priced wine for €3, but odd opening times - eg: it closed half an hour before the main pool closed? Rumours a larger supermarket is planned near the reception....
Main pool - lovely ppol, lovely area but.....quite oddly......it closed from 1pm to 3pm....allegedly for cleaning but the other pool stays open all day forcing you to make other afternoon plans. Opens at 9pm and shuts at 7pm. You will struggle to get a bed after 10-11am in the day....but there is a large grassy areas to plonk down a towel
Pool attendants - good, take their job seriously and there are sharp whistles every 5-10 minutes!
Entertainment - not very much, kiddy disco every night but not near a bar or seating area so the parents are stadning while watching
Nationalities - nice mix of UK, Dutch, German and Italian
No ATM on site but there is one 2-3 miles away
Staff were professional, busy, friendly enough,

Room Tip: Thomson rooms are near the big pool but opposite side of the site to the restaurant, bar and beach b...

Stayed in a Thomson Al Fresco static caravan, and would happily recommend Camping Fornella.

The van was not massive, with pretty small beds and bed rooms, but then we were not in the van that much. Kitchen was well equipped, and a BBQ was provided. Extremely glad we had ordered air conditioning for the nights....you only need shorts!

The two pools were great, one with a lane to swim lengths, the other allowing children to have reasonable fun....no hats, inflatables and balls allowed, and life guards to stop excessive behaviour.

Nice, pebble, beaches on site, with safe swimming areas.

Restaurant was OK, but not great.

The site toilet blocks seemed to be very good, but hardly used as had our own facilities.

Spent eight nights there this summer. Booked direct and took our own tent. Great facilities, really clean, fabulous location. Absolutely loved it.

Two 11 year olds with us and they were as happy as pigs in muck.

This is the fourth time my family have stayed in Fornella over probably a 10 year period. This time provided us with a large gap since the last time (6 years) so we were worried things wouldve changed for the worse/ unfamiliar. They hadnt.
Restarant is still very very cheap, good quality (staff could be a bit more helpful however!)
Shop and pool bar (Cheap as chips!)
Nice to see they have put toilets near the pool now as this used to be a pain! We were on the new part of the site, which on a windy night is a pain as the trees were not grown and therefore no cover but the new part was lovely and had direct access to a lovely little beach again!

This campsite is an absolute Gem, and would definately choose this over a hotel in Garda anytime!

Room Tip: Superpitches are brilliant as you dont have to top up water etc

We stayed here last summer for 10 nights and it was fabulous - so much so we've booked to go again this year. We've booked a super pitch again and to me it's worth the extra money. The pool area is great for all ages of children and we only once didn't manage to get a lounger. The pool disco in the afternoon is fab for the younger children. It's situated in a lovely area perfect for exploring the Italian Lakes.

Very welcoming, last-minute booking at a special price which was much appreciated. Location is fabulous, we stayed on the campsite in a mobile home with a view of the lake. Kids who are four and two had so much fun, fishing, rowing, sailing, paddling, swimming, playing ... It was just what we needed. Pizzas from restaurant were great, other food not as good but great views from every table, right next to the lake. Swimming pools relaxed and fun, very clean. Thanks to all Fornella staff.
