I am driving myself nuts trying to find somewhere for us for a week in August. DCs will be 5 and 7 . I know I definitely want:
Italy S/C villa 2 or 3 bed and private so somewhere not built up or overlooked. Private decent sized pool that we can swim rather than just paddle in. Walking distance to a village/town for bars/food. Nice family place not fishn'chips or 18-30s. Good food. I must add I am vege (no meat/fish) so Italy normally works well for me. We don't need childcare or entertainment.
We shall drive and want places nearby to go and see. The beach is a bonus but not essential.
I am having no problem finding villas on owners direct but would like to focus on particular resorts/towns/villages.
The smaller Garda towns are ok even in August, eg Bardolino or Sirmione. And can be done by public transport using buses from Verona and river boats. But villas tend to be up in the hills so need to drive if you don't want a hotel or campsite.
Samnella, we've always been in August and it was never cramped or too noisy. You do have to pay for sun beds so 99%of people lay on towels round pool/on beach but never a lack of space. The pitches round mobiles were spacious (ours were anyway - with Canvas) and set out sociably x
