Recently returned from Italy staying at Camping Fabulous for 5 days as part of a Sun Holiday deal. As it was the beginning of April and the start of the season the site was very quiet and not alot of the ammenities were open for obvious reasons. This included the onsite shop (which did open on the last day!, geleteria and swimming pools to name but a few). However the bar and restaurante were both open from 6pm daily.
The site appeared to be very clean and my boyfriend and I were extreamly pleased with the Keycamp accommodation (Vista), which came equiped with decking patio, BBQ sun loungers, 2 bathrooms, 2 bedrooms, kitchenette and living room area. Keycamp staff were also friendly enough.
On arrival we were given a wristband to wear for the duration of our stay, not sure why as nobody checked it and maybe it was just me but I did not witness the security guard at the entrance who people speak of.
Campsite staff all seemed friendly enough and spoke English. My boyfriend lost his wallet during the stay and the staff did their best to help even though we did not find it.
The food at the restaurante was average, nothing special to write home about. The bar area was quite nice with outdoor seating.
As we were on a Sun Holiday the campsite kindly arranged via emails to them for a taxi service to pick us up from the airport and also to take us back on the Friday. I think it cost around 20 Euros e/w. You could probably get public transport via the metro and bus, however with baggage this may be alittle difficult.
Speaking of public transport the campsite is very well situated for Rome. When you come out of the entrance, turn left and walk down the road. At this point you will see a police hut in the middle of the road, cross this road and there is a bus stop that will take you to Eur Fermi (the metro station, if you hop on the metro it will take you to all the sites, there are only 2 lines so it really doesnt get confusing. Its very easy to navigate. Bus/Metro tickets for the week cost about 25 Euros each which you can buy from the front entrance desk at the campsite.
Overall we enjoyed our stay at the site and would probably return maybe in the summer when more things are open. As a base for Rome though its absolutly brilliant and cheap at the price.
