The medieval Manhattan of San Gimignano is one of Tuscany’s most popular sites and this new campsite lies just 2 km from the town. There are 35 touring pitches here, all with 6A electrical connections and some with shade from mature trees. There are other areas suitable for tents and about 50 mobile homes to rent. The site is in woodland surrounded by olive groves and vineyards and has been developed with much care for the environment, using rain water for irrigation and with many solar panels. Located with a sports centre, the site has use of many of the sporting amenities (tennis carries an extra charge). The swimming pool alongside the site is shared with the public, but site security is good.
The careful design of the site places reception above a neat suite of service amenities. A smart restaurant and a bar have a terrace where some marvellous views may be enjoyed as you relax. The site shop is adjacent. San Gimignano has been classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage site and is best known for its towers which were built by rival families and date back to the 11th century. An hourly bus service connects the site with the town.
