Brione is a municipal site situated on the edge of the small town of Riva at the head of Lake Garda. It is about 500 m. from the town centre and lakeside. There are 110 level pitches, 78 with 6A electricity and trees provide some shade. Some also have water and a waste water point. Terraces on the hillside take 21 tents. There are 39 mobile homes to rent, two equipped for disabled visitors. The site is neat and well tended with spectacular views of the mountains from all pitches. Riva is recognised as one of Europe’s windsurfing Meccas due to a combination of strong winds with flat water. The nearby town has many good restaurants.
The town shelters under a rocky escarpment and from ancient times has been an important communication and trading centre on the route between Verona and the Alps. Although it lacks the sophistication of the southern end of the lake, today it is a picturesque tourist resort. Because of its windsurfing reputation, this end of the lake tends to attract fewer families and larger numbers of energetic young people (and those young at heart), so there is a vibrant feel to the resort which continues into the evenings.
