Unfortunately, our road trip through Italy is over. We saw the most beautiful places in Tuscany and in the north of Italy. Our first stay in Tuscany was the most special. We camped there with Vacansoleil. Something that was too long ago but that we always like very much. It brings us closer to nature. This time the camping was just a tad different. Read all about our Glamping in Italy here.
Tuscany is the ideal region if you like the combination of nature and city. There are several trips to do, such as to Florence, Pisa or Siena. But at the same time you also have the peace of a holiday on the coast or among the numerous vineyards. Tuscany is so versatile. And you can eat and drink very well. That’s exactly why we booked our holiday here. A nicer area so close to home, we hadn’t seen before.
Glamping in Italy
We used to camp with Vacansoleil in France. But this time it was completely different. The experience of glamping in our Serengeti luxury tent was for us the first time. Glamping is camping with just that little extra and it’s written on our body! You have the comfort and décor of a cottage, yet the experience of sleeping in a tent in the middle of the great outdoors. We had three sleeping options, a fitted kitchen and bathroom at our disposal. On top of that we had a spacious terrace with table and sofas. It’s great to be able to eat outside in the evening in comfort as the sun slowly sinks behind the towering Tuscan trees.
Vacansoleil has a lot of possibilities to camp abroad or rent cottages. The offer of choice makes the decision all the more difficult. We ended up glamping in Italy because we had not been there before, strangely but true, and specifically for Tuscany because this region made us dream away in pictures. Around our campsite in San Vincenzo, a small fishing village, there were also plenty of trips to plan that were a few hours away. Think of cities like Pisa, Florence, Siena, but of course also small cozy coastal cities. The location has certainly been the deciding factor for us.
Camping Park Albatros
In Italy itself, the choice of campsites is also great. We chose one of vacansoleil’s largest parks, because of its location, but also because of the facilities on site. Camping Park Albatros, the four-star campsite where we stayed for a week, has more than five swimming pools, two (takeaway) restaurants and two cocktail bars, several shops and the park is also within walking distance of the beach. Furthermore, there is entertainment every evening for both young and old and there is a local market to explore twice a week. Enough to keep you busy for a week or two!
We mentioned it before, this campsite in Italy is ideal for many interesting day trips. For example, we went to Florence, Siena and Pisa. But you can also take the ferry from Piombino, near San Vincenzo, to Elba, an Italian island. Furthermore, Vacansoleil gives you plenty of information about other excursions in an extensive brochure, such as a wine tour that you can drive yourself by car or trips that can certainly please children.
We chose to drive to San Vincenzo by car. We made our holiday so a small road trip. Having your own car on site is definitely a luxury if you plan a lot of getting out or you want to take home a lot of local products (as we like to do!). The campsites of Vacansoleil are also always equipped with ample parking facilities so why not go by car (or camper).
Ours glamping in Italy
Even though the campsite we chose was so huge, we still had the feeling of an intimate experience. All facilities are nearby, the staff there is extremely friendly and the location is perfect. It is also a quiet campsite where there is still a lot of ambiance to be had. And Vacansoleil has the most luxurious Serengeti safari tents for a unique experience we have been able to experience. We had a very pleasant stay and a brilliant holiday!
