We spent 2 weeks in a small villa at Villagio Albatros, Marina Juilia near Monfalcone. The place was clean and everything was new and in good condition (gas stove, remember matches!). There is air conditioning in the living room but it does not reach the bedrooms, and open windows do not help enough on a very warm night. There were very few mosquitoes, they keep them away by using some "natural" methods.
There are green areas with trees between the the rows of "villinos", so the place does not feel cramped. The beach is OK, there is a narrow strip of sand with gravel and then grass with some trees which create a handy shade. The beach is cleaned every morning of seaweed. The sea bottom is sand, shallow, good for small kids.
The staff is nice and helpful, the girl at the information desk is there to give advice on sightseeing, and she will let you use her computer to check e-mail. Otherwise there is no Internet which is a disadvantage. Overall the place is very family-oriented, there were activities for children which we did not use, I think they were mostly in Italian. Almost every night there was a discoteque mostly for children too, so as an adult you don't have much to do there in the evenings, however Grado is 20 km away and it is a great place with beach discos, late night shopping, concerts, etc.
This camping is a little out of the way, but there are a lot of intersting places to explore in the area by car, so we were not bored at all. Many italian families were staying there.
