Stayed here for first time with our kids age 9 , 7 and 4 and hired a canvas holiday tent.
Site is easy to find , we drove from bergamo airport and hired a car.
The facilities on the site were good, restaurant, shop, pool and lake beach with direct access from the site.
The restaurant served good food, we ate their twice in the 10 days and the bar was reasonably priced for drinks and ice creams. The shop served fresh bread and croissants every morning plus other essentials. There was a bigger supermarket a short walk from the site.
The evening entertainment was a little repetitive but the kids enjoyed some of the shows they did in particular the lion king.
The play area was well equipped and again kids enjoyed this.
The site is a short walk into moniga del garda where there are more restaurants and you can get a ferry to sirmoine and garda. There is also more lakeside beaches up from the site.
The swimming pool is clean and has good number of sun beds. The pool is a good size and the toddler pool is good for younger ones as it is not too deep. Would like the ability to use inflatables in the big pool at the end of the day when it is quieter as Currently not allowed.
Pitches are spacious and enough room for table and chairs and car outside.
Reception staff were helpful and printed our boarding passes for us for our return. A good selection of leaflets in reception area for things to do locally.
The only thing I would like to see Is the toilet blocks cleaned twice a day as by time they are cleaned again in the morning they are rank and also the showers to stay on for longer than 5 seconds as is a pain when trying to wash hair!
Overall a great site for families and would recommend.

Dear Laura,

Thank you for this review. We are so glad you had a good holiday. Thank you also for taking the time to review us here.

We do, however, clean each toilet block three times a day. We do strive to always improve the way we work so I will take note of this as well as your suggestion on the timing of the showers. They are currently set to run for 30 seconds, so if you say they are running for less I will check this out myself.

Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

This was our first camping experience with our daughter (almost 4) so we did a lot of research and went for Piantelle. We flew into Verona and hired a car. I would recommend car hire as trying to navigate public transport in the heat would've been a nightmare. We were greeted on arrival and given our keys (no bed linen though which was an issue that night!). We had booked a 3 bed mobile home as all the 2 beds were already reserved. It was in a private patch with a lovely veranda. Everything we needed was provided and the mobile home was spotless. The aircon was priceless as it was 35-38 degrees every day. The campsite itself is pretty big with 2 pools, a park, kids club, restaurant and bar. They also have a small shop selling basics as well as sun cream and poll inflatables. My daughter had a great time at the pool and at the evening entertainment which was excellent. Stefano and Daniel were great with the kids and genuinely seemed to like children which is always a plus! Overall, I would say Piantelle is a 4.5. A few things could be better though for example their pricing. Bike hire, washing machines and restaurant prices were all too high in terms of price/quality. That said, you could always cook at home and not rent bikes. We are considering returning next year but for just a week as 2 weeks was a bit too long.

We stayed here last year and this review is more or less the same with some updates as certain things have changed.

This year we took a taxi from the train station as the next bus was not for 2.5hrs, at a cost of €21.

At reception we just had to hand over our passports to be copied. The staff are very friendly. No wearing of armband required on this site. The receptionist rang Ian and Rachel the canvas reps to meet us. A husband and wife team who were friendly and very helpful. We made friends with them over the course of the 3 weeks and they go above and beyond in their job. Thanks Ian and Rachel for the chats and craic we had. We had requested the same mobile as last year which was a stone’s throw from the restaurant and small hill down to the lake.

The mobile was a 3 bed select with air con and a deck. The double bed was comfy. There was a small room with single bunks and another with 2 single beds. The lounge had a facility for a pull-out double bed. It also had a gas hob, full gas cooker, microwave, large fridge/freezer, a double shower and a gas barbecue outside. There were UK/IRL 3 pin sockets beside each European 2 pin sockets which was great as the adapters were not needed.
The toilet was small for 6 people but the shower was a double tray and the spray was strong. The shower block was across the way if people were waiting for showers.

The wifi was consistent at 50/80% depending where you were in the mobile. They site said they increased the strength this year.
We were at the lake a couple of days and I got it to 60%, but you had to be close to the gate. Viber and WhatsApp worked better this year especially at the restaurant. During thunder storms it was gone for a while.

There are 2 pools onsite, a round kiddie’s pool and adult pool. They were open from 10 to 7, with a life guard on duty. There was no lane swimming and no hats needed. The beds were free and they were actually the good ones like you see for rent on the lake shore for €6/8 a day. No food or drink was allowed at the pool. There was a small café area adjacent to the pool. We did not use the pool bar for eating so can’t comment on price or quality.
Just at the back of the pool was a large playground for the kids with all the mod cons. Close to the playground at the back of the site was the Roan and Go4Camp mobiles.

The entertainment for the kids starts around 8.30 to 10.30 and just beside the restaurant. Looked like all were having fun and its similar to other sites.

The camp restaurant is called Gusto Giusto. The pizzas were good and the rest was OK, not outstanding. But the double espresso with some hot milk were lovely. Prices for takeaway were same as restaurant prices. The staff were friendly.
The shop was a small room beside the bar/restaurant. It was more expensive that the local supermarkets. It always had bread or brioche though, till late in the day.

This side of the lake is great for swimming, especially for nervous swimmers as you can stand up just before the first buoys.
The walks on the lake were,10mins to Moniga port taking a left and 20mins taking a right, to 2 new café’s as Café Pippo has been demolished. A further 10mins to the West Garda Yacht Club and then you have to go out to the road away from the lake. We walked to Desenzano a couple of times on this route which took 90mins. It’s all path and a lovely walk. We also walked to Castello di Padenghe which is well worth a visit for the views alone.

The campsite have their own buoys on the lake to rent, just located well past their own jetty so there is an area for swimming in front. A few days two boats were tied to the jetty belong to the campsite. These were moved by Max the site porter in quick fashion as this is not allowed.

We found 5 supermarkets. (below times are for walking)
Italmark; This is in a small mall and is the closest but the most expensive. Out the main gate up the road 10mins. You would have passed it on the way to the site. There is also a bank with atm here.
Simply Market; This is about 15mins away. You can get to this by following the Padenghe sul Garda road which has a path the whole way now. Best way if walking is go to the lake and take a right. At Chiosco Salfor restaurant, take a right up the hill and you will come to the main road with a garden centre in front of you with a pedestrian crossing. Cross and take a right and it's on the left just after the roundabout.
Diu Discount; This shop is like Lidl but obviously Italian. It on the road to Manerba del Garda and has a footpath all the way. It takes about 20mins.
Pennymarket; This is also on the Manerba del Garda road past Diu Discount. There is no footpath past Diu Discount. It takes about 25mins.
Lidl; It takes about 30mins and is on past Pennymarket on the right.

Our favourite coffee/beer break this year was Recyclage Café just behind Italmark or the café beside Simply, cannot remember the name. They was always quiet and seemed to be used by locals. There is also a lovely café beside Lidl.
We did not have a favourite dinner restaurant as they were more or less the same. But we did go to La Pescatrice di Obertini Bortolo in Moniga port a couple of times. It's the first on left with a terrace overlooking the harbour.
For lunch we tried the "Menu Fisso" or set menu in restaurants Seradel (went here many times) and Francesco in Padenghe sul Garda.

The mosquitoes and biters were out some nights but all told not too bad.

Overall it's a really lovely site and was very quiet when we arrived at beginning of June but was getting busier as we were leaving.

The site has everything for families to mature couples. The boats connecting towns on the lake are not as frequent as the south and east of the lake.
The only drawback is the local bus service is not very good. We walked everywhere we need to go though.
Lastly for anyone into geocaching (great for kids) there are a couple of easy ones around here.

NOTE: We took a taxi on the last day to Desenzano train station that cost €30. It did not have a meter and was just a set price whereas the one we took on first day had a meter, €21 for same journey. So if you ask reception to organise a taxi get a metered taxi.

Get the apps "Trenit" for train bookings and times, "Navigazione Laghi" for boat times and prices.

Room tip: Close to the lake

My family and I had a wonderful holiday in a 3 bed mobile home. The accomodation is air conditioned, and very well looked after, with a large decking area and bbq in the mobile, and cause of the campsite size, everything is only a short walk away. The staff here are great, and so friendly. The kids club animators are great also and so good with the kids. The place is not too big and located right on the edge of Lake Garda. The restaurant food is fine, nothing spectacular, but the location and the staff more than make up for this. Also there are plently of good restaurants located in nearby Moniga. The pool area is well kept and not too crowded, at least not when we were there. I would go back here again if going to lake Garda, as it is a really wonderful location to explore all this region has to offer.

The fourth time my family and I have visited Piantelle, we are always made to feel welcome from the moment we check in until the moment we leave by the ladies at reception, the owner who is often around the site greeting residents and all the staff who are working around the campsite daily. The food at the restaurant is simply sublime and again the staff are friendly, multilingual and attentive to diner's needs. I'm sure we will be back again soon!
