A gluten-free camping holiday

A gluten-free camping holiday – main image

As a malicious Chinese once said, may you live in interesting times. And we live in a world of smog and a growing number of lifestyle diseases. The group of people suffering from gluten-related diseases (celiac disease, gluten allergy and intolerance , Dühring's disease) is also growing, having a negative impact on the digestive system. Gluten is found in cereals such as wheat, barley, rye and oats. Patients should avoid, among others: bread made from these cereals, breaded dishes, noodle and whitened soups. In addition , gluten may contain many products, such as: cold cuts, blue cheeses, salads with dressings. This repeated "among others" can be problematic on vacation. We are sure about home-cooked food, but what about restaurants, cafes and fast food bars? Of course, you can cook on your own while on vacation, take products with the crossed-out grain with you or look for them in local stores. You can also choose tourist facilities where a person with a gluten-sensitive disease will feel safe when choosing a dish from the menu. Below we present a list of such places.

Villagio Turistico Internationale


It opens with Villagio Turistico Internationale , a 4-star property right on the beaches of Veneto, less than 2 km west of the center of Bibione. A stone's throw from the Adriatic Sea, with a water park with heated swimming pools and a full accommodation package with exclusive apartments for the most demanding people - a real paradise for vacationers. There is also a gym and a playground on site.

Vacationers who would like to go on a gluten-free Italian holiday will be pleased with their stay. The camping restaurant is certified by the AIC (Italian Celiac Association), which means that guests with celiac disease can eat there safely.

Camping Union Lido


This 5-star resort is located just outside Cavallino . It provides guests with a camping site, camper pitches, cottages and hotel rooms. Camping Union Lido attracts whole families. The youngest have access to a club with interesting activities. The program includes games and activities, and those interested can also register for a scout camp. The wellness & spa center has prepared a wide range of services for adults. Beaches with golden sand await everyone.

The menu of restaurants, fast food bars and pizzerias will delight everyone. This applies not only to "ordinary" customers, but also to guests with various types of food intolerances. To say that the facility has a lot to offer them is an understatement. It is a real paradise for people on a gluten-free diet! If you love Mediterranean cuisine, dishes based on pasta, meat (including fish), desserts or ice cream, you don't have to limit yourself. In many places you will see the symbol of a crossed grain. And those who like to cook themselves will find plenty of products in camping markets.

Camping Village Rocchette


The next point on the gluten-free tourist map of Italy is located in the western part of the country, approx. 20 km south of the town of Follonica. Camping Village Rocchette meets the expectations of people who have to be careful about what ends up on their plates.

You will spend your Italian holiday for people with celiac disease on a campsite, pitch, mobile home or lodge tent. In your free time, you can go to the beach, take a sightseeing trip (e.g. to Pisa for one day) or engage in water sports. The area invites you to walks and bike rides.

Camping Continental


Northern Italy is famous for its beautiful landscapes dominated by mountains and lakes. Among the wonderful landscapes there is another resort where you can spend a gluten-free holiday - Camping Continental. It was located on Lake Mergozzo, approximately 80 km northwest of Milan. It provides guests with all amenities. People avoiding gluten can enjoy a warm (and more) meal at Monkey Restaurant.

The accommodation offer of Camping Continental includes large plots for campers and tent pitches. Comfortable hotel rooms also await guests. A nice beach by the lake encourages blissful lazing.

Camping Village Laguna Blu


In the north-west of Sardinia, a few kilometers from Alghero, lies Camping Village Laguna Blu . It is popular among water sports enthusiasts, including windsurfing and sailing. Its accommodation base is divided into a camping site and an area of mobile homes with air conditioning and satellite TV.

Without a doubt, this is gluten-free camping . When shopping at the supermarket, you can be sure that you are adding safe products to your basket - they are properly described. The point sells a wide range of foods for people with gluten intolerance and other food allergies. The offer of the camping restaurant is equally attractive. Guests who have purchased a breakfast, dinner or full board package have a chef at their disposal. During the conversation, they will adjust the menu together to include nutritious meals without allergens .

Camping Village Cavallino


The next point is Camping Village Cavallino , located between Lido di Jesolo and Punta Sabbioni, on the Cavallino coast. It is beautifully located - right next to the sandy beach, surrounded by a pine forest, practically a stone's throw from Venice . Guests will find most of the accommodation options typical of this type of facilities.

The campsite belongs to the Baia Holiday chain, just like the previous one. This means that holidaymakers can count on an equally favorable offer for people whose daily menu includes a gluten-free diet .

Camping Village Poljana


This property is also a Baia Holiday point, so if you have any food allergies and are going to Croatia, we highly recommend coming here. A gluten-free holiday at this resort will be a time spent pleasantly, blissfully - and very tasty!

Camping Village Roma Capitol


We now move to Rome, specifically to one of its oldest districts. In Ostia Antica there is Camping Village Roma Capitol , where people with any type of food intolerance can safely go. Why? Because he also belongs to Baia Holiday. After talking to the chef, you will have peace of mind about your menu, and if you prefer to cook on your own, you will find products described in detail in the supermarket.
