Union Lido & Bolero Holidays
Bolero was the first tour operator to offer holidays at Union Lido, and over the last 30 years has stood as a respected member of Union Lido ever since, which is one of the reasons why we have one of the most sought after positions at Union Lido.
Take a look at the location of the Bolero Holidays area which is located centrally on the holiday park providing easy access to all of Union Lido's facilities, all within short walking distance. Also, we are able to tell customers that wherever they are on the park, if they look up for the impressive Union Lido water tower, they can always find their way back to Bolero Holidays!
What makes Union Lido unique is personal to each individual visitor. The holiday park can feel like a living thing, being able to re-configure itself for each persons needs and wants. In a family of 4 or even 5 or even 6, you may have 6 unique personalities, and possibly 6 different ways to enjoy a holiday.
For Mum, the Union Lido wellness centre may be her biggest attraction, with beauty treatments, relaxing spa and water therapy sessions that help to relax or energise body and mind, whereas Dad wants to enjoy the thrill of Scuba Diving and enrols in the Union Lido classes available.
Perhaps the kids want a swimming pool complex with fun slides, or a lazy river so they can swim at the speed of a superhero and the youngest child wants to dance and makes sure everyone can see her strut her funky stuff at the Baby disco in the Union Lido amphitheatre. Maybe the grandparents joined you and they just want to sit out and absorb some Italian rays whilst reading the newspaper or that risqué romance novel.
The holiday park wants you to enjoy yourself and offers so many differing ways to do it, chances are you will need to come back each year to make sure you get to enjoy them all!

What does a Union Lido
Many people may consider Union Lido to be a campsite in Italy, because it has pitches for tents, caravans and motorhomes, but for those that have been there regularly over the years, we are confident they would say it is more of a holiday village. Many people at Union Lido can spend two weeks of their holiday never needing to leave the holiday park, enjoying the pool complexes and beach daily, having a spot of lunch at any one of the many bars, cafe's and restaurants located throughout the holiday park during the morning / afternoon and evening.
Even spending some time outside your air-conditioned two or three bedroom Bolero mobile home with a selection of UK and European food choices can be purchased from the supermarket (either at the supermarket almost on your doorstep near your Bolero mobile home or at the main Union Lido shopping square where the large deli and bakery will tempt anyone in!) This option offers a relaxing way to enjoy your lunch alfresco!
Union Lido is a large park and due to the Bolero location, you will never find anything at too great a distance. Within 3 minutes you could be popping your towel down on a sun-lounger at one of the pool complexes or add another 60 seconds and you are on the soft expanse of private sandy beach, where a large clear blue sky and a passing ice-cream vendor will cater for your sun worshipping needs!
From opera to rock concerts, at Union Lido evening entertainment is always assured.
When you arrive at Union Lido, you receive a copy of the My Weekly entertainment programme which will tell you more about the activities and events throughout your stay. This opens up many different types of holiday experience, from aqua aerobics on water-bikes which will test even the most hardy cyclist to an evening with fine wine and musical artists as the sun sets behind the glistening Adriatic sea. You will also find that many of the events are family orientated so the kids can always get involved!
