Family holiday in Italy

Hi we are a family of two adults and four children (3-13) and we are considering holidaying in Italy in July. We were originally thinking about the campsites but now we're thinking about hiring a villa but we don't want to be isolated. Have anyone got any experience on this topic?

Thanks

Hi Sandy,

For people to be able to help you, you need to be a bit more specific - Italy is a big place!

As you've posted on the Lake Garda forum does this mean you're interested around Lake Garda? Are you thinking of fly-drive, or are you intending use public transport to get around?

If you can give us a bit more detail there's bound to be someone who can help you...

As Daisy said need more info - specifically on Region. If you are considering Lake Garda my personal suggestion would be the south east area of the lake - somewhere like Lazise or Bardolino (my 2 personal favourites). Also consider Peschiera del Garda with good public transport links. All 3 not far from Gardaland and Caneva Water park.

For private rentals try www.holiday-rentals.co.uk

Here's some example properties in each town

The Lake Garda region is very popular with Germans so you will also find adverts from German owners. the UK website has a German sister site www.fewo-direkt.de

If you find something you like please check exact location of property as "local" addresses mean you can be up to 3-4km from main town village

Yes 100% agree Lazise or Bardolino are very good choices for first timers to the lake, particulary if you have kids.
