Camping Village San Francesco is located on the sunny south bank of Lake Garda, near Desenzano del Garda. This large, well maintained camping site lies at the beginning of the elongated peninsula, from which the attractive town of Sirmione juts out into the lake. Both children and adults will thoroughly enjoy themselves on the camping site or in one of the large amusement parks at the lake.

Not just camping

When you drive to the camping site, the first thing you will see is the wide driveway flanked by oleander trees. San Francesco is a well laid out and very green camping site with paved main roads and straight side roads. The pitches vary in size, the surface is mostly hardened. As the name 'Camping Village' indicates, in addition to camping pitches, rental accommodation in the form of mobile homes is also available. These are suitable for four to seven persons. They are located in a separate section somewhat further inland, while the touring pitches are closer to the lake.

Enjoying the lake (and more)

The camping site has its own sunbathing lawn along the lake with shady trees. Here you can rent a boat or canoe. In the section with mobile homes you will find the swimming pool and the sports facilities (tennis and volley ball). There is a convivial small bar near the sun-drenched swimming pool. The centrally located restaurant (with bar and pizzeria) is very sociable. Across the terrace of the restaurant is a playground for the little ones.

Sanitary facilities

The sanitary facilities are clean and well maintained. The ablution blocks are neatly laid out. There are special children sanitary facilities with children's showers.

Travelling party: Seniors

We stayed here in July 2018, the pitches are maybe a little tight in places but mostly when on site we sat by the lake. The views from the lakeside are beautiful and it is quiet and peaceful with glorious sunsets. We ate in the restaurant and the meals were well cooked and reasonably priced and the staff friendly We walked into Sirmione but if too far for some there is an excellent bus service. The bus service is also excellent to Desenzano and we also took the bus to Verona. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would definitely return.

This was my first experience of an Italian site and perhaps the previous site at Innsbruck might have raised expectations.

Getting to the site should have been easier than it was, more Via-Michelin’s fault but could do with better signage and Italian road junctions are diabolical.

Access to the site very easy and efficient. English speaking reception let us choose a pitch. Access to the pitch was fairly easy but if I did not have a motor mover on the unit I would have struggled.

Toilets were clean and spacious but a little dated. They could have done with larger shower cubicles but there was plenty of hot water.

Electrics on the pitch are diabolical. Could only use lowest setting on the water heater and an electric kettle was a definite no-no. Not good enough I’m afraid hence the low rating for the pitch itself.

The on-site restaurant was large, airy and appeared to be good value with English spoken. Service was good. The on site shop had an excellent range of goods, really didn’t need to go any further.

The site is right on the shore of lake Garda so wonderful views and sunsets. No traffic noise but our stay coincided with Liberation day (a national holiday in Italy) so the site was quite busy and noisy with children.

All in all we liked this site for the views, access to major roads and easy cycling. We would probably use it again but would choose a quieter time of year.

Second visit to this site having previously visited last year. The site has an incredible setting at the side of the lake and has shops, restaurants within easy reach by car, cycling or walking if you feel up to it. The pitches are close together and many are on a slope and the ground is rough. The staff appear friendly, the restaurant on site seems busy but we never ate there. We have a dog so we never used the pool area. The views of the lake are stunning. I suggest wearing water shoes to access the lake as it is rocky in most parts. The only disappointment was the toilets / showers appear not as well maintained as last year. They were often pretty dirty, lots of insects squashed on the walls, broken mirrors and shower fixings etc. To maintain a 5 * rating I think they will need some urgent improvements in this area. The area is beautiful so this does balance the negatives.
