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?

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.
