Alan Rogers Review
Perched on a very high ridgeline called Piana di Orlanda, and with superb views, expect a warm welcome at Orlando. Its 180 pitches, 70 for tourers, are all equipped with 6/16A electricity. They are clean, level and some are on terraces in a shady pine forest, and so have restricted views, but can be enjoyed from installed seats placed on the site’s eastern side. The facilities are all set in an attractive central area, including the heated pool complex with its soft slides and cascades. There are views over the pools from the terraces of the busy restaurant. Lovely safe play areas are provided for children, along with ponies. The site has a pleasant atmosphere and when we visited there was the sound of happy laughter everywhere. Orlando is popular with Dutch campers.
English, Dutch and German are spoken here, and the cheerful young staff are keen to help. An information pack is provided on arrival. It really is worth the long, steep drive to spend time here in the clean, fresh air. This will suit nature lovers who wish to escape the usual loud noise of modern campsites. The site is affiliated to IT62800 Camping Weekend at Lake Garda.

From A1 Florence/Rome take Incisa exit (not Valdaro). Take R60 towards San Giovanni Valdarno. At Restone take P14 to Badiacchia a Montemuro for the site. The site is signed from a great distance out. Be prepared for long winding climb.
