Parc reviews

Parc highlights

  • Hop on the shuttle bus to the beach

  • Enjoy dinner with a view of the beautiful countryside

  • Take the Etruscan wine trail

How do you fancy exploring a medieval hilltop town on your next holiday? Get yourself to Le Pianacce and you’ll be perfectly placed to discover Castagneto Carducci and the Archeaological Park of Baratti and Populonia.

Here, you’ll find steeply terraced, shady pitches alongside some top quality facilities. The owners will give you a friendly welcome and you’ll soon feel right at home at the wonderful restaurant that overlooks the pool, countryside and coast beyond. Kids will love splashing about in their very own lagoon-style shallow pool and there’s another pool for the whole family to enjoy. Or if you’d rather exercise those taste buds, you’ll be able to indulge in regional delights like the Etruscan wine trail if you head further afield. When you do venture away from the parc, why not pick up the shuttle bus (organised by the parc owners) that will take you the 5 km distance to the beach?

    Attractions

    Cavallino Matto

    A large theme park with attractions to suit the entire family. A good selection of rollercoasters and activities for teenagers plus more gentle rides for younger children.

    Pistoia Zoo

    A few kilometres away from the centre of Pistoia, immersed in the hillside is this 75,000 square metre zoo. One of the most interesting zoological gardens in Italy both because of its position and the number of species gathered. Over 600 animals from around the globe including flamingos, llamas, camels, tigers, elephants, hippos and bears. There is also an area where children can touch the animals such as goats and rabbits.

    The park of Pinocchio could not have been set anywhere other than in Collodi. The author adopted this village for his surname after spending most of his childhood here. Established over a span of 30 years, the park is far from being a traditional theme park, rather it is a creation of fantasy endowed with unique charm. Stroll along the paths and experience a living story amid unspoilt pearls of nature blended with beautiful art.

    Acqua Village Cecina

    Water Park with good selection of pools. A variety of water chutes and slides.

    Rossi Alabastri

    This firm was founded in 1912 and offers a wide selection of products and sculptured objects in 3 galleries. Alabaster has made Volterra famous and visitors get a demonstration of the craft from a skilled artisan.

    This was a nice parc but unfortunately not suitable for our teenage boys, it was more suitable for a lot younger kids.There was really not a lot to do there at all but it was a delightful spot and the accommodation was very good.

    The tent was clean and comfortable and ampel space for 4, we would have liked a little more sunshine on our pitch but thats just us! Shower block was clean and always had hot water. We spent a lot of time visiting , about an hour drive from most things so well situated. Great for familys with small kids but not for 10 years upwards which was our case, we would pick somewhere for them next time with more adult animation.

    The camp is well set out with accommodation on terraces. There is a small shop on the site and two larger supermarkets further away. The restaurant and takeaway is very good and reasonably priced. One of the downsides is the pool area, there is not much space around the two pool areas so if you get there late you will be forced to sit on wet concrete.

    My daughter an I were on holiday with my 18 month old grandson and the facilities on the parc enabled us all to have a lovely holiday. He loved the smaller pool and playing round the tent and we found the poolside and cafe bar experience was enjoyable. Overall a lovely holiday.
