Union Lido Campsite | Finding Luxury, Comfort & Family Fun in Venice
Union Lido was the first 5-star camping village in Italy, located near Venice. It is the ultimate family place to stay with a water park of over 10,000m2. Imagine lagoons, waterslides and wave pool in a aquaparc surrounded by the whitest of sands. Not only this but Union Lido also has its own amusement park, beach and easy transport links to Venice.
Waterfun at this types of places should be for everyone, that’s important to Union Lido. Daredevils can enjoy themselves with the Vortex or Jungle Wave Pools while the little ones can enjoy a quieter time in the other areas of the heated aqua park. Full of easily accessibly slides, a lazy river and plenty of lifeguards keeping watch… Safe ‘water-based’ family fun is always a great way to start a holiday isn’t it?
But our bet, is that you won’t move too far from the aquaparc for the first few days of any break here… especially if you have energetic kids that seem to have permanent smiles on their faces due to the endless hours of free entertainment available in the pool area. But if you do then, the beach side restaurants, nature walks, play areas on the private beach will easily pass another day…. And don’t forget, you’re staying next to one of the world’s most famous, iconic cities in Venice (known as the ‘Queen of the Adriatic, City of Masks & City of Bridges’)
The ability to ‘ down tools, stop and not leave the campsite’ is made even more possible by the shopping on site…, From fantastic supermarkets to local producers you’ll have all the food covered without having to bring half of it down with you! (our tip – try the strawberries freshly picked that day from the fields nearby – blissful!) So that’s catering sorted, think relaxing BBQ’s with fresh meat and vegetables, followed by Italian Gelatos!
As for evening entertainment, there’s some brilliantly useful ‘INFODESKS’ situated across the campsite to find out whats going on each day or evening… During this stay, but we hope to return again, we’ve seen live music in the evening, visited the adventure park and even taken a swing at the ‘mini golf’…
Finally a little bit about the staff, from what we’ve seen this week, you’re guaranteed a warm, friendly welcome. Whether you’re camping, touring or staying in a luxury mobile home, nothing’s too much trouble for the staff. They’ve not skimped on levels of staffing per guests (even though its late April) and it’s made our girls fall in love with this place… just check out the pictures below of Lottie’s smile or Libby running from the beach to our pitch… it’s hard to imagine a campsite village can get any better!
