Parc reviews

Parc highlights

  • Take a dip in the hilltop pool to savour superb Tuscan views

  • Handy for trips to Siena, Pistoia and Lucca

  • Get your fill of pasta, pizza and wine at the parc’s restaurant

Step into the heart of the Tuscan hills at Barco Reale and expect to try your slice of authentic Italy (and we don’t just mean the moreish pizza from the parc’s restaurant).

Set on a steep hilltop, in a natural, wooded setting close to the medieval towns of Vinci and Pistoia, this parc is small, rustic and offers stunning views of the surrounding Tuscan countryside. Why not explore one of Europe’s loveliest landscapes with cycle hire that’s available nearby? On parc, you’ll find pitches and facilities are steep, the pool and restaurant offer perfect views of the rolling hills beyond. You’ll also find 2 pools, parc-run kids’ activities and that tasty restaurant and bar we mentioned. It’s so good, even the locals eat here.

Surrounded by a grassed area for sunbathing, this really is a dream Italian setting with a good number of trees and shaded areas. Why not enjoy the two whirlpool baths while looking out across the Tuscan countryside. For the ultimate in relaxation and a change of scenery why not head to the sauna and solarium, just a short drive away.

        Lovely site in a stunning location. Very well-run park with helpful and friendly on-site staff. Surprised that nearly all holidaymakers were Dutch though - small handful of Brits, but children still made friends. Low-key early evening entertainment mainly for under 10s and site lovely and quiet at night. On-site bar and restaurant was very good, particularly for pizza and pasta and open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Superb ice-creams from onsite gelateria. Not the place to come for a wild time but really well-situated for visiting Tuscan towns and cities or just lying by the pool and taking in the amazing views. Eurocamp couriers by far and away the best we'd ever come across - couldn't do enough to help - wish they were all like that!

        A lovely, quiet campsite although the locals with their late night , very loud, singing duo on two of our nights was less than relaxing.

        Loved the site and we were lucky to get one of the best pitches. The only downside to the site was the on-site evening activities (disco etc) which were quite loud - the sound carried across the whole site. But this was a minor complaint - everything else was lovely.
