Monte Pisanino riflesso sul Lago

General

  • Lakeside campsite in the Serchio valley
  • Surrounded by trees and crossed by a small river for swimming
  • Own restaurant specialising in traditional Tuscan cuisine

Hikers, unite. For if you're up for an Italian walking holiday, among the lush green land, hills and valleys of spectacular Tuscany (and if not, why not?), the Lucca province's Camping Lago Apuane to the north of the region is the very place for you.

And why? Because this lakeside site is a tiptop place for hiking and outdoor holidays, as it's set in the Serchio valley in the green, thickly forested and mountainous Garfagnana area. Hiking, mountain biking, fishing, canoeing, climbing and caving are all top activities here, around the Garfagnana and the two nearby national parks. For alternating outdoor days with urban adventures, Lucca is about 70 kilometres away and Florence 90.

The site is surrounded by beech, cedar and fir trees and is crossed by a small river for swimming and fishing. It has its own restaurant specialising in regional cuisine, serving traditional Tuscan bread, homemade pastas, mushroom and polenta platters as well as grilled meat, cheese boards, pies and wood oven pizzas.

Other facilities include bike hire, a playground, a food shop and free wifi.

Please note

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

    The hosts were kind and generous, lovely lakeside location, amazing pizza

    Disliked: 

    No hot water taps made tenting difficult with dishes etc - the campground could supply hot water taps and free showers for the fee charged. There was a lack of attention to detail with toilet paper and soap not being stocked up and napkins from previous days not cleaned up off the restaurant lawn. The wifi was difficult and intermittent. TENTERS NOTE - the ground is rock hard, you will need good pegs and a rock or a freestanding tent.

    Disliked: 

    We disliked the fact that they were not open eventhough they had availabilities on the website. We found out the hard way by arriving at the campsite and calling the owner after and then finding out they were already closed for a month.

    Especially since it's in a remote location which is only reachable by taking windy roads for 45 minutes till an hour.

From the manager...

We are very sorry for the inconvenience, and for derivative problems!
Very very very sorry!

    Really lovely location and good facilities.

    The lake and the views are amazing. The facilities were clean and equipped with all that is needed. The staff was super friendly - they made us take away food from the restaurant and even sold us eggs and bread in the morning (without re-ordering).

    Over all great.

Thanks for your review and for being our guests!

    È stato tutto perfetto, il campeggio è strutturato in modo che ognuno abbia la sua privacy.
    Dallo chalet si gode una magnifica vista sul lago.
    La proprietaria è una persona squisita, ci ha subito fatto sentire a casa ed era come se ci conoscessimo da sempre.
    In loco si possono noleggiare kayak, canoe e pedalò per godersi appieno il panorama è l’incredibile atmosfera del lago!
    Il ristorante è ottimo e le pietanze cucinate con amore e nel rispetto dei sapori della Garfagnana.
    Le zone comuni sempre pulite e ben organizzate.
    Se si fa tappa in Garfagnana, a mio parere, non si può scegliere di meglio!
    Grazie e al prossimo anno😊

    Der Weg ins Camp erfordert eine mindestens 1 stündige Fahrt durch Serpentinen. Unbedingt am Tage ankommen/ im helle ankommen.

Local attractions

To the north of Lucca between the Apuan Alps and the Apennines, the Serchio valley has a different landscape than typical Tuscany, of mountains and forests rather than vineyards and olive groves. It's a popular place for fishing and canoeing as well as hiking and mountain biking.

Camping Lago Apuane is in the Apuan Alps Natural Park, an area of deep valleys and high peaks. It and the mountains of the Appennino Tosco-Emiliano National Park have many hiking trails crisscrossing them and several famed spots at which to stop off, such as the Pietro Pellegrini botanical gardens, the marble quarries of the Alps and the remains of the Roman necropolis near the town of S. Bartolomeo.

For town days, potter around Castelnuovo di Garfagnana 24 kilometres away or Barga within 37; Lucca is a bit further afield at 70 kilometres. The Selva del Buffardello adventure park is 15 kilometres away.

Canyoning, rafting, rock climbing and caving are also popular nearby.
