Home to a hilly, wide landscape with a river running through the tranquility. A stone house perched on a hill, surrounded by olive groves and vineyards. Green meadows and woods. This is the image we all have in mind when we think of the Tuscany. The region is located in the north-west of Italy, bordering Liguria in the north and Umbria and Lazio in the south. It attracts thousands of visitors every year. And not only because of its unique landscape. The cities of Florence and Pisa are also a real magnet for visitors. The Italian region is an ideal destination for both nature and history lovers. The medieval centre of power, Florence, combines the influences of Michelangelo and Leonardo Da Vinci. The city's many cathedrals, bridges and museums illustrate why Florence is considered the "cradle of the Renaissance". Another highlight of Tuscany is inevitably the world-famous Leaning Tower of Pisa.
For all nature lovers, we recommend the nature reserve "Parco della Maremma" in the south of Tuscany. The marked paths lead through untouched natural landscapes where Deer and wild boars graze and long natural beaches can be explored. Crystal clear water, ruins and old caves complete the beauty of the nature reserve. A secret tip is to see the sulphur baths of Saturnia. The thermal baths often have a temperature of 37 degrees Celcius and boast an impressive array of natural wonder. The Chianti mountains should also not remain undiscovered during a visit to Tuscany, as this area makes up almost a third of the region. Castles and palaces, vineyards and small charming towns, surrounded by a romantic landscape. This region is completely dedicated to viticulture.
Tuscany, like the rest of Italy, is an ideal destination for all camping holidaymakers. Whether travelling in a campervan or caravan, there are no limits to where and what you can explore. Numerous campsites offer overnight accommodation and invite you to explore them. In order to not limit yourself to one region, we'd recommend discovering Tuscany on the road. A camping holiday is the ideal choice for those who want to get away from their daily routine and enjoy a simple life. Here today and there tomorrow. No fully equipped apartment, no private bathroom. Enjoy the simple life. Maybe spend the night under the stars or sit at the campfire for all night? In the morning, enjoy breakfast at the camping table or sip your first cup of coffee at the beach. Splash around in the pool with the kids or go for a dip in the sea. Prepare a tasty lunch in your campervan and order a fresh Italian pizza in the evening. A camping holiday offers you all this. If the traditional way of camping is a bit too much of an adventure for you, there is always the possibility to go glamping. A luxuriously equipped tent or an ultra-modern campervan will make you feel like you're not even camping, but in a 5* hotel.
The Parco della Maremma nature reserve is home to the beautiful camping village of Pappasole, directly on the Tuscan coast. The campsite offers many accommodation possibilities. Of course there are enough pitches for campers, caravans and campervans. If you prefer camping during your holidays, or if you are only travelling by car and pitch a tent, you'll also find a nice spot in the middle of nature. Overnight stays in the camping village Pappasole offer the perfect recovery for all ages. Bungalows can also be rented in the camping village. No wishes remain unfulfilled here. The well-equipped sanitary facilities are available in sufficient numbers. Sunbeds and parasols are available on the beach. In addition, the camping village offers numerous activities, such as football, tennis, treasure hunts, some workshops and theme parties and other movement games. Children also get their money's worth here: the evening kid's show and children's disco always go down a treat. There is also plenty for water sports enthusiasts to discover: a diving centre of its own makes it possible to explore the underwater world. At the beach you can go surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing. The resort also has a large bathing area. Lifeguards provide a safe swimming experience. In the morning and afternoon there are aqua aerobics courses. Dogs and cats are also allowed in the camping village, so bring your pet along!
Luxor Chianti Village
Another campsite that will leave you speechless is located in the heart of the Chianti vineyards - The Luxor Chianti Village. As its name suggests, the campsite is known for its cleanliness, comfort, friendliness and luxuriousness. Luxor Chianti Village is well equipped for all your needs. It offers pitches for caravans, campervans and for those who want to camp in a tent. The campsite has bars, restaurants, swimming pools, a children's playground and quiet places to relax and put your feet up. Pets are also welcome. In the middle of this natural wonder you'll also find a designated 'Wi-Fi area'. All of these features make the campsite ideal for all lovers of camping and glamping. As you've probably already guessed, this camping village is rather luxiourious. Close to the campsite is the beautiful town of Siena, which is definitely worth a visit. Surrounded by a unique landscape, you'll find ancient historic buildings and perhaps the best wine in the country. In this city you can still see and feel the reminiscence of the Middle Ages, as if it were today. The charm of the Italian Gothic is preserved in Siena. Twice a year the famous horse race "Palio dei Siena" takes place in the "Piazza del Campo". Other landmarks of the charming city include the cathedral and numerous churches, as well as the "Museo dell'Opera del Duomo", where the works of the neighbouring cathedral are collected and exhibited. In Siena you can visit the "Bottini dei Siena", an underground tunnel system that used to be used for water disposal. The city is known for impressing its visitors with its incomparable charm.
Many more campsites can be found throughout Tuscany. The region has so much to offer and there isn't a better way to see Tuscany than by doing a road trip. It is also a great way to visit the many amazing campsites in the Tuscan region and be part of the campstar community. Whether you're travelling in a campervan or in a caravan, limiting yourself to one area or one city can be boring - so explore! If you like to cook your own meals and only want to go to a restaurant from time to time, a campervan holiday is perfect for you. Waking up in a different place with a different view every morning is something that is hard to describe in words, but many of our fellow campers couldn't recommend it more. A horse race in Siena, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the traces of the Renaissance in Florence, a good wine in Chianti and a beautiful natural beach in the Parco della Maremma - what more would you want! Discover Tuscany, the right way.
