Pra delle torri

"I must say , I found this campsite amazing! The facilites were almost unbeatable as you seemed to have everything at your doorstep, restuarants, market, bike rent, chemist, doctor, shops, even a small but good amusement area for children. It is a brilliant site for children as there is activities every day and they would never seem at a loss for something to do. The staff were very helpful as when we first arrived we didn't knw were to go and the staff made sure we found are way and that everything was ok for us. It was extremely clean and not a trace of litter in site. My only problem was the fact that you had to pay for the sun loungers at the pool but it wasn a problem as it was well worth it! Sometimes we even threw our towles on the grass instead. Its only a 5 minute drive from the beautiful fishing village, caorle. And about a 2 hour drive to venice which is worth it!

All in all, I found this campsite amazing with its lovely staff an employees and i would certainly not hesitate to come back again.

Lovely place

"we have just come back from 9 days on the pra delle torri campsite. It is very well organised and has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. You do have to pay £6.50 per day for 2 sunloungers and a parasol but you need them as there isnt a lot of shade. The food is nice in the restaurants though if you have fussy eaters be warned, there isnt a lot for them even in the supermarket. There is a mosquito problem in the evenings but they spray twice a week to keep numbers down. I took Avon Skin So Soft and used that as a repellant after showering and I only got one mozzie bite (I didnt use it that eve!). We took a trip to venice which was by bus and boat, takes about 2 hours, so you only get 5 hours there but st marks basilica and a gondola ride are 2 very good reasons to go! you can buy the tickets at information and the bus picks you up on site. The sports bar is a nice place to go, very friendly staff.It has a pool to the rear which opens at 3 and closes at 9 which nobody seems to be aware of, great for swimming with no kids about!! There is a small beach too where you can hire a pedolo or go on a banana boat though the sea was quite choppy when we were there so we didnt manage to do either.I would go back there, it was lovely!"

Unbiased and Fair

"I think it is helpful to be aware of what to expect

Location

Good location for a beach holiday, reasonable beach very convienient to site. Good water parks locally. Not much else other that day trips to Venice (approx. 75KM (car&train or car&boat trip)

Campsite

Very clean, well laid out, good facilities, shops restaurants, evening markets, bank, chemist, doctor, etc everything you might need on site.

On Site Entertainment

Excellent pool complex, very safe lots of life-guards, large kids area approx 2-3ft deep. Good onsite play area for yourger children. BUT everything becomes an opportunity for making money. The onsite kids play area (exclusive to campers) was 5 euro per child. Everytime kids pass it they want to go, it just leads to extra expence or arguements. It really should be free. They also had signs up looking to charge for use of sun loungers at the pool!!

I would not go back

beware mossies!

"We stayed in Pra Delle Torri for 10 days.We booked with Siblu whose reps were barely enthusiastic, not very friendly or helpful. The acccommodation is fine if you have booked a 3 bed elegance but the 2 bed esprit was awful, far too small(2 adults and 4yr old and 6yr old, horrible blankets(!), just too small. A big disadvantage of all siblu's mobiles is there is no air conditioning. Even with the fans it was stifling at night. The mossies are a huge problem so go prepared.

The site itself is fantastic, especially for the children. Hiring bikes is a good idea and very safe and the pools are great.

Would visit again but would book directly next time.

Great - But not the Best

"I and my family (2 adults & kids age 9 & 10) stayed there last year and the year before. The reason we went back is because it was great the previous year. But there is a better campsite reasonably nearby - Piani di Clodia on Lake Garda. It doesn't have a beach (so if you like a beach holiday dont go). On the plus side it is right beside the Gardaland amusement park (Which is fantastic - and has a new waterpark open in summer 2009). We like the beach and Gardaland and are considering going back to both this year for 1 week in each. So all in all Pra Delle Torri is a great site but the other is marginally better"

What an excellent site. Early...

"What an excellent site. Early September is a good time to visit. The weather was perfect. We went with 2 pre school age children (3 years and 9 months). The site is well appointed for this age group and I couldn't fault it at all. I'd read the reviews on here before going so was able to look out for the previously mentioned pro's and con's.

Our accomodation was basic, 2 bedroom caravan. It could have done with some more kitchen utensils, but we found this in other more 'top of the range' caravans too! There was no air con but there was the option to hire fans, which we did and found it perfectly adequate. The Siblu staff were very helpful and efficient if not overly friendly, although they were probably more end-of-the-season tired than rude (it was Siblu's last week).

The first night we went to the Sports Bar to eat. It was very busy and we waited over an hour to be served our food. However, the supervisor did apologise to us for this wait and assured us that it was because everyone had travelled that day and came out to eat rather than cook themselves (as we had too) and that it was usually much quieter and quicker service. This proved to be true. The staff were friendly with good English and the food was delicious. Our 3 year old also found other children to play with on the ride-on toys, which kept him occupied whilst waitng for his tea.

The Blue Moon Gellateria was another excellent place to eat, with ice-creams to die for. Again the staff were friendly and helpful. The selection of food was good in all restaurants with plenty of choice for children. The shop on site was good with a good choice of essentials and prices that were comparable to other local stores. It was worth a trip to the local Supermarkets for a wider selection and they are only a few minutes away by car.

The pool was really fabulous and mostly shallow enough so that the 3 year old could stand up. At it's deepest probably about 120cm? It had slides suitable for all ages and a stage in the middle where the staff performed dance routines which the children all joined in with. Also exercise classes were held as well as circus skills classes. The Siblu reps had inflatables, buckets, spades, books and all sorts, that could be borrowed. I would say that if we'd had teenagers they may have been bored quite quickly by the pool though. There is a 25m and 50m pool. The site is right on the beach which is a good option for teenagers.

The local town, Caorle, is lovely and people seemed friendly. We took the 'dotto train' on a Wednesday evening which takes you in to the town square. It's 20 minutes on the train and you get a couple of hours before it brings you back again. Highly recommended.

The site was extremely clean and tidy. There was a mosquito problem which we were advised about on arrival but with the use of sprays we received minimum bites. Plenty of shops for gifts or newspaper and postcards. There was a lot to do on the site which we couldn't do because our children are so young, bike hire, crazy golf, football classes, inflatables and bouncy castles. You don't need to leave the site. We'd definately go back.

"first time at campsites abroad and this one was fantastic! swimming complex is excellent - plenty of room to sunbathe can do for free on the lawned areas round pools or if want a sunlounger can book one for holiday at a cost. went with 10 and 9 yr old and they loved it. felt very safe and were able to relax whilst kids went off and did their own thing. mobile was OK but would reccommend that you ensure comes with decking and shade if you can afford it. All types of accommodation available and you can book direct. Park mainly made up of german and dutch - small amount of english which we found a plus!!! recommended! I think will be hard to get better next year...."

First holiday with Siblu in Italy,...

"First holiday with Siblu in Italy, absolutely brilliant. We stayed 10 days which wasn't long enough! Accommodation was fine, the Siblu reps were very helpful & friendly, they made you feel very welcome. We took our 2 lads aged 14 & 16 who had a great time. The entertainment was a bit repetitive, probably better suited to the younger children but this did not spoil the holiday as not something we would normally worry about. Swimming facilities were superb, take-away pizzeria in the 'village-square' was great. Everything was reasonablly priced with a small supermarket which has everything you would need for a self-catering holiday. Would love to go again but is already fully booked for 2009!"

"We love this campsite and have booked their own maxicaravan for the last three years. The site is very clean and secure, customer care is excellent and there are good value shops on site and nearby in Caorle. The kids love the pools and seaside and run around quite safely in the evenings. Its easy to drive or get a bus and ferry to Venice and we have explored the towns of Treviso, Bassano del Grappa and Belluno. My husband loves cycling and brings his bike on the plane, and has made lots of friends amongst the other cyclists. The roads here are a lot less busy.The majority of visitors are German, Dutch and Italian but we've noticed more English are coming each year. The only minus point are the mosquitos! take tropical strength spray with you, the Italian stuff doesn't work!"

"This was our second visit (and review).

Visiting in August the park is VERY busy and didn't seem as nice as it was in last year in May.

The sports bar this year was much improved, better run but we did find that the overall service throughout the park was generally slow and not that good. One waitress at the sports bar kept getting delivering food to wrong tables!

The staff at the "Bazar" where even worse this year in that the way they stare at you and there are many more of them!

The internet computers where either broken, the net was down or had queues so if you need to do online checkins etc then go to Caorle and get online there; much cheaper and no queues.

You have to have a golf handicap to use the nearby course (or lie) but you can use the driving range.

The Disco bar runs until 4 am so you get the thumping bass drifting across to the Siblu caravans. If you can't sleep due to the heat then this gets very annoying.

We stayed a couple of nights in Venice which is MUCH better than doing a day trip. The day trippers go home around 5 so it becomes very quiet after that. The water taxis where €95 euro this year!

That's it for us and Pra Delle Torri, been there, done that... Next!

(definately going back to Venice...)

I will try and give a pros and cons...

"I will try and give a pros and cons review of the above, purely as constructive advice.

We rented a 3 bed mobile home for 2 weeks through Siblu. Not getting air conditioning was a mistake, but Siblu don't offer it as an option, and other operators, such as Elle Vacance do, but only had 2 bedroom units. Re Siblu, while the reps were pleasant and helpful enough when you asked them questions, they could have been more pro-active in offering general advice, and talking to their clients to check how they were getting on.

The site was large and well planned, with loads of restaurants, cafes, gelatterias, small supermarket, fruit and veg shop, a bank (get a safety deposit box for 50c per day), internet point, as well as tennis (I think there were 4 or 5 excellent hard court tennis courts), table tennis, crazy golf, basketball, soccer pitches, kids playground etc. The adjacent golf course is very good, and testing enough for even the best golfers, but in spite of the discount for site residents, can be quite expensive if you also need to rent clubs. Discounted green fee was €36, clubs hire €15, trolley hire (recommended!) €5, and if you want to enter the Sunday competition, an extra €20. If there are 2 or more of you to pay for, it gets pricey! Bring lots of golf balls too, plus tees, glove, etc.

We rented bikes for a week which were a great addition for scooting around the place, especially for kids, and are a pleasant way to go to Caorle for a trip, as there is an excellent cycle path all the way. Not much in Caorle though, other than tourist shopping and restaurants and a beach.

The best restaurant on the site was the Sports Bar, and the service was good, especially if you strike up a relationship with your staff (not always easy though!). Menu choices were OK, and prices were also reasonable enough, and pretty much standard everywhere.

The place closes down to traffic for "quiet time" between 1.00 pm and 3.00 pm, and from 11.00 pm to 7.00 am, so if you plan to go anywhere during these hours, or if you have an early plane to catch, you need to plan ahead and leave your car outside the site gates outside these hours.

Venice was a 'must-see' trip, and it really was a beautiful place. Our reps advised us that the best time to go was around 4 pm, as most tourists leave around then and it gets much quieter, and more pleasant to walk around. We packed a big picnic (bring loads of cold drinks) and drove to a nearby town (can't remember the name, but 30 mins away), caught the train into Venice, right into the centre. I would recommend getting a single fare ticket (€6.50) on the water taxis, and take the boat all the way down the grand Canal to the last stop (the Lido), but stay on the boat and go back one stop to the Gardinieri (a beautiful tranquil garden area) and have your picnic there. Then take your time and walk back through The Piazza San Marco, and on up through the tiny streets, getting lost many times, and arrive back at the train station for a train back at around 9.40 pm. That's enough for the kids and adults!

Other than Venice and Caorle, the other good trip is Aqualandia, a decent water park about 40 mins drive away. Get there by 10.00 am, and as well as the rides, watch the shows, they may seem a little cheesy at first, but they are excellent.

In summary, on the upside, the facilities at Pra Del Torri were very good and should cover most needs. On the downside, there is not much else to do in the area other than those discussed above, and few notable places of interest to visit, especially in teh short 2 week window available.

One general moan about Italy was the confusing and badly organised way they serve people. In many shops you must first queue to pay for what you want, then take your receipt to another queue to get what you bought, and sometimes more than one queue! We were also there during the final matches in Euro 2008, and the Sports Bar (nearest for us and our favourite) had loads of staff behind the bar, but they all managed to look busy without achieving much, and the service that night was terrible. One good Irish barman and a few helpers could have run the place smoothly and kept everyone served much better!

I would recommend it for a visit, but won't be going back myself; there are far too many other places I haven't been to yet, and life's too short...!

"We stayed with Siblu; the accommodation and reps were very good. We had a family bereavement during our stay and received fantastic help, support and advice from the reps.

The site is very good, the main pool is great for kids as it's not very deep and there are "proper" pools also for more serious swimming. There are also many activities around the site that we didn't seem to find the time for!

We always made the effort to speak Italian first (me with my phrase book) and found that the staff seemed to appreciate that and where helpful and encouraging.

In one particular shop the staff are VERY odd and watched their customers like hawks but most of the shops where ok and perhaps a little pricey. Saying that, the supermarket was ok, it closed a little bit too early in the evenings but if you have a car then there are some good supermarkets 5 minutes down the road.

We also did a daytrip to Venice but it makes for a tiring day. We drove down to Marco Polo airport and then took a water taxi from there. The water taxi was €70 and the "bus" was €12 each return. The taxi is so much more fun though!

There was a public holiday at the end of our stay and the camp filled up but there was still room around the pools and at the beach. You have to pay for sun beds at certain times of the year.

We probably will go back at some point as we did enjoy our stay.
