General

  • Peaceful site in the woods 10 minutes' walk from Barberino Val d’Elsa
  • Less than an hour from Florence and Siena by car or public transport
  • Swimming pool and paddling pool with views over the Chianti hills

If you’re taking time in the Tuscan hills, it’s worth settling in somewhere that gives you not only cracking views of the countryside, but also easy access to the towns and cities for fuss-free days out. One such strategic spot is Camping Semifonte, a peaceful place in the woods just outside Barberino Val d’Elsa.

From here it’ll take you 40 minutes or so to drive to the famed attractions of Florence, Siena and San Gimignano. Or abandon the car for the day – there’s a bus stop a couple of minutes’ walk away, from whence you can be swiftly whisked to the main towns in a more leisurely fashion.

Hugging the hillside as it does, the site has spectacularly scenic views over the Chianti countryside to feast your eyes upon as you relax. Idle hours should thus be spent around the grounds too, sunning yourself on the grass, stretching out in a shaded spot for a snooze or chilling out in or by the swimming pool. There's a paddling pool for kids, as well as a playground and a covered TV area.

Barbecue basics, ice cream and fresh bread are among the offerings at the on-site mini market, or you can work up an appetite by taking the 10-minute walk to town for your Tuscan treats, either in the restaurants or at the supermarket. A fridge and freezer are on site to store your supplies in the unlikely event of leftovers.

    Friendly, helpful staff and pitches with views of Tuscan hills. Local buses nearby. Didn’t use their food ordering service but it seemed extensive. Local supermarket within walking distance. Showers with hot water and plenty of places to put your things while showering, though facilities were a bit aged. Hot water for washing up dishes as well as laundry sinks and two washing machines and a dryer.

    Le personnel est très accueillant et serviable.
    Les emplacements sont pour la plupart ombragés.
    Les équipement sanitaires sont anciens mas parfaitement fonctionnels.
    Situé à mi-chemin entre Sienne et Florence, c'est le point de départ idéal pour visiter les nombreux petits villages de la région.
    Service boulangerie sur réservation.

    camping très bien situé entre Florence et Sienne.Comme il est constitué de terrasses,nous avions l'impression,sur notre emplacement, d'être sur un balcon avec vue sur paysage Toscan.......magique!!!!Très bon accueil et pas de souci si vous souhaitez changer d'emplacement,le gérant est très cool et à l'écoute des clients.Sanitaires propres.La piscine permet de se rafraichir.La proximité du village avec ses commodités est bien appréciable(commerces divers et arrêt de bus à 5 mn). Un frigo gratuit est à disposition des campeurs.Pour nous, qui avons eu des problèmes avec le nôtre,et par un temps caniculaire nous avons vraiment apprécié ce service.Nous recommandons ce camping très calme également.

Local attractions

Those partial to a tipple or two will no doubt lap up the opportunity to drop into some of the local wineries. The hills are alive with the sound of corks popping around here, so take your pick from the estates and cellars (there are heaps within a 45-minute drive) and plot a course for a pleasant day pottering through the vines.

Start historic ramblings at Semifonte, where a chapel replicaticating the famed dome of Florence’s cathedral is all that remains of a great estate. You can drive up here in 10 minutes or take a walk – it’ll take you about an hour or so through the vineyards and olive groves. Another recommended spot nearby is Certaldo, a hilltop town with a well-preserved medieval centre 20 minutes or so away.

Florence and Siena are both about 40 minutes away by car, with San Gimignano a little closer at half an hour.
