Torn between the twin delights of a city break and a country chillout? Step away from the decision-making, dear reader, for you can (and frankly should) have it all.
Snaffle yourself a spot at Camping Vecchio Ponte, in the little town of Vicchio, and you’ll be but an hour’s jaunt from the centre of Florence, giving you easy access to the city’s many museums, UNESCO World Heritage Sites and those all-important café and gelato stops. Drive if you must, but most folks will be pleased to take the simple option of popping down on the bus from the stop a few minutes away.
Being out in the sticks, you’ll also be surrounded by plenty of fresh-air frolics too – wine tasting, hikes, mountain biking, rafting and visits to Etruscan ruins are all top picks in this locale.
Not that you necessarily need to exit the site to find fun things to do: dive into the large open-air pool for a swim or join like-minded folks for games of football, volleyball, tennis or table tennis. Or maybe your idea of a good time involves saying pah to such levels of activity? Pull up a sun lounger and settle in for a snooze-and-sunbathe sesh on the terrace around the pool (perhaps keeping one eye on the small sorts as they splash in the paddling pool).
Eating is, of course, another popular activity around these parts; the on-site restaurant serves up tasty treats at breakfast, lunch and dinner, and there’s also a bar where you can relax with a drink and gather with fellow guests for shows, movies and shaking your stuff on the dancefloor.

Party: 2 adults
Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Medium (26-50 pitches)
Stick around close to the site for hikes along the Sieve river or along the Florence Springs trails through the Mugello hills, bike tours (hardcore muddy ones and leisurely wine-punctuated ones) and kayaking, rafting or paddleboarding trips on the area’s waterways.
For a small taste of the area’s history, nip over to the Etruscan ruins in Poggio Colla and Frascole, visit the Giotto House Museum and take in the rather grand Medici Villa in Cafaggiolo – all are within a half-hour drive.
Or throw yourself into the plethora of historic attractions in Florence – it’d be easy to fill many hours or days taking in the Duomo, the Accademia, the Uffizi, the Ponte Vecchio, the Pitti Palace…
