Camping San Benedetto Il Vecchio Mulino
Reviewed September 1, 2012

We have just returned from a fabulous 10 day trip to Peschieria, Lake Garda. This was our first experience of camping in Europe (I should say 'glamping' really, we had an air conditioned mobile home!!!). The check in was swift, the mobile home, Corollo (2 bed, 2 shower/toilet) was immaculate and right on the lake front with amazing views, the site was kept immaculately clean: serviso vans constantly checking the recycle areas and emptying regularly throughout the day, security and general checking also going on. The entertainment team, Go Up, deserve medals for their tireless efforts to encourage activity!! (in truth we only really participated in a few activities but their presence 9am until 11pm did not go unnoticed). I know some would wish for more bustle and slightly nearer the town centre but we really loved the peace and tranquil area in which this camp has its position. Not many British but that bourne no bearing to us and we got on well with the Italian, German and Dutch neighbours!! Thank you.

Room Tip: The top village is lovely if you wish to be by the lake side, although if it is windy it does get al...

We stayed at San Benedetto during June in a 2 person La Perla chalet. The site itself was very good, great pitches, very well kept, the pool was first class and the location a reasonable walk from the town. All in all it should have been great site and easily 3 stars. However it was let down by several things. First of all - it might just be a low season thing - but the whole site was taken over by hundreds of school parties and others who occupied the bar/restaurant to the extent that one night we couldnt get in there and were simply turned away. The staff seemed more intent on servicing these hoards of kids than paying guests. The other thing was that there is no real shop to speak of and the bar is lifeless. But above all many of staff are just awful, rude, dismissive and arrogant. I was actually stopped from buying something in the shop with no reason given. When we left the woman in charge was almost screaming at some poor guy who complaining about his bill - which was 2 euros over - he was sent packing. The wifi is useless - I paid, it didnt work so I was told to go see a camper who might help. No reimbursement. How many camp sites charge for wifi these days? All in all these guys need to seriously start understanding customer care or just concentrate on the parties and mass catering and not mis-sell themselves as a holiday destination

Room Tip: All the chalets are good but unless the service improves - dont bother

We spent 1 week at this site with our motorhome. The pitches were quite difficult to get into and were large enough for us, but some of the caravan and awnings were squashed in so probably not a site to go to with a large van.

Not many English on the site, mainly Dutch but they are so friendly, you feel right at home.

The site is directly on the lake and has it's own slipway for launching boats and many people had small inflatables, perfect.

We did have to upgrade our electricity as the 3amp provided was not even enough to boil the kettle.

Location is good, take a bike and you are 5 mins from the town and there is plenty to do on the late. Watch the bikes on the ferry, you have to pay double to take them on!

The facilities are old but clean and hot water was plentiful. The reception staff were not so friendly, but overall this was a good site and is very good value for money after spending 2 weeks in France on sites that were around £60 per night.

Stayed at San Benedetto with a large group including children. The bungalows are really tiny, but clean. The aerea feels very safe and the children could walk around by themselves. The enertainment by the excellent pool fascility was super! And the lokal food at the cafeteria was good, especially the pizza. Staff also very friendly. I

We spent two glorious weeks at this campsite. we had originally booked a Miami mobile but i changed to a Perla in the Top Village. These mobiles were new and clean and only metres from the lake. It consisted of a double bed, small bathrroom and samll living area of tv and ac. the kichen was adequate with 4 gas rings and small fridge freezer.
The campsite itself is small in comparison to Bella Italia, its much larger (and less apppealing) neighbour.
The swimming area has two pools, one for toddlers and small children as well as one for adults and larger children. Both are great and very popular with everyone. It is compulsory to wear swimhats which are available at the pool bar for 2 euros. Sunbeds are also for hire for one euro per day. i didn't mind this as it prevented getting up at the crack of dawn to reserve one!! The pool bar consists of snacks ranging from paninis and pizzas to soft and alcoholic drinks as well as flots, rubber rings etc.
There are two restaurants on site. The Pizzeria is excellent and the staff are lovely. It is well priced and you also have the take away option as well. there is also a 'mini' market but it's not mini it's miniscule, you can't depend on it for your food during the holiday plus the prices are disgraceful. There is a small family supermarket 10mins walk from the campsite which is a lot better.
The second restraunt 'il vecchio mulino'we will never go back. The first time we were short changed and the 2nd we left after waiting more than an hour for our meal! The staff are young, unfriendly abd don't seem to care. We had just came from a long day in Venice and were tired and hungry and wished we had have went to the pizzeria who are much nicer and Alberto keeps everthing ship shape :)
The entertainment during the day occurs mostly at the poolside which comprises of games, pool games and the splash disco which the children love.At night you have the Happy Disco followed by shows such as Mamma Mia, karoke and cabaret shows. The team are excellent, enthusiastic and get to know everyone.
It take sabout 25minutes to walk to Peschiera which is quite pictoresque and has plenty of small cafes and boutiques. The market is on Monday which is extremely busy.
Shuttle buses run to Gardaland and Movieland and you can also book day trips to Venice or tours of the lake. You can also catch the boat at the port in Peschiera to most of the towns at the lake. You don't necessarily need a car.
Overall, i was very pleased in choosing this campsite. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and I would seriously consider returning next year.
