We were very disappointed with this campsite. On arrival we were given no information about the facilities available; we were not allowed to choose our site. The campsite was poor value compared with other sites we had been on in Italy.
The washing up water was tepid. There were very few toilets for the number of people there and you often needed to queue. There was no shop on site and no bread delivery. After checking the site rules we found that there was no restriction regarding barbecues but when we lit one on our site we were reprimanded and told we should have put it in the roadway. That would have been a hazard to children wandering around. Ironically the site had no fire buckets or any other fire fighting devices in evidence.We were told that we had one hour a day of WiFi but could not get a connection.
On the positive side the pitches were flat and in attractive surroundings.
To top it all, there was no “thank you”, nor any “goodbyes” or “bon voyages” when we left.
A very unfriendly place.
We came away thinking how good it would be if every city had a site like this, no frills but giving good access to explore the town. It's just a few km from Ferrara, mostly on a safe cycle route, which is just what we need when on a touring holiday. The site itself is peaceful, just a little traffic noise. The staff are helpful, the lady took the time to show us where everything was and we were given a key to a room where we could lock our bikes up to keep them dry. The toilet/shower blocks are OK, cleaned every afternoon - a little dated but functional, and there's a big washing machine that's only 3.5 euros a load. There is no bar or cafe, just vending machines. There is a nice outside area where you can sit and read or use the wifi - one free hour a day, and only 1 euro/hour after that. The pitches are mixed hard-standing and grass; motorhomes were kept off the grass when we were there due to recent heavy rain. The only real downside was the overgrown fruit trees dropping berries everywhere including all over motorhomes; the owners apologised for this and said the weather lately had prevented much maintenance.
