A thrilling adventure in to the atmospheric, history packed country that is italy. After an inevitable picturesque car journey (that is recommended if you wish to capture the beauty and ancient aspect) we arrived at norcenni. Now I am not one to eat on site but the restaurants are exceptional , serving beautiful food, packed on a saturday night. There are 3 restaurants i believe, each sufficing different palettes. Foods popular in the area such as salami and olives are in great abundance! With a massive selection of fresh food sorts in small shops placed around the site, you can make your own makeshift lunch!
After perusing the campsite on a small train , my family and I had one of the best ice creams ever (trust me I know), which would be quite a recurring theme in the holiday. A short walk up the hill led us to make the discovery of the 18 hole mini golf course. It was fantastic, but not the best I have ever played, it was rudimentary and barely shrouded us from the blistering heat.
At night the place is extremely atmospheric, a beautiful heat sweeps over girasole, the centre of the site comes alive, the fountain changes colour, waffles and pancakes are on sale, football matches are shown live, provoking merry faces and just a fantastic night.
The poolS are a highlight, slides, flumes and 3 pools. One attraction is the lazy river that propels its victims at high speed in donut rings down a winding water path, There are loads of different variations of going down the river! Smaller slides and children's pools also looked brilliant, i was tempted to join in!
The location is beautiful, we loved going into Florence where we got a flavour of the historical legend. Hundreds of photos were taken around the area.
We also loved playing football with the masses of nationalities, the notorious skill of the Italians stood true! you will always get a good game there, whatever time. There were also board games and tennis available.
One restaurant in particular looks over the mountains and the pool, making it a fantastic spot for a meal.
Overall this was a brilliant stay and had many memories, i cannot emphasise how much i recommend this pocket of stardust. Such a beautiful opportunity is something unmissable. Truly fabulous...
