Why not enter some details and get an accurate price?

General

  • Seven-acre site in Vicchio, an hour's bus ride from Florence
  • 20 minutes from the Medici Villa at Cafaggiolo and Frascole ruins
  • Pool, paddling pool, sports facilities, bar and restaurant

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.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

    Cold shower but think it had been a busy day at the pool and all the hot water had been used up as had hot showers on other days.

    Disliked: 

    Ingen service, ingen strøm eller varmt vand når solen ikke skinner (solceller) en helt igennem ringe Campingplads. Der var meget få besøgende og dem der kom, kørte dagen efter. Ud af ca 15 toiletter var der 2 der virkede. Ejeren blev meget uforskammet når man påtalte at f.eks den manglende strøm eller det varme vand ikke var der.

Local attractions

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…
