The campsite and Bart. We can speak of love at first sight. At a young age, going on a camping holiday was the thing that was being looked forward to all year and that is no different today. What could be better than being able to BBQ in Italy and drinking a local wine? With great pleasure Bart brings the perfect holiday experience to the guests, online and offline. Maybe you will meet Bart this year when he is on location to create content and/or eat a delicious fiorentina steak.

Because of this, Italy never feels far away. Her love for the beautiful country Italy has only grown after living in Rome. When Lisa has a weekend off, she is immediately looking for plane tickets for a weekend away.
