Alan Rogers Review

Wonderfully situated on the Etruscan coast of Tuscany, Il Capannino is a small, traditional campsite which has been part modernised. It is twinned with Free Time (IT66330) some two kilometres away, where visitors must go for many of the facilities. Of the 200 pitches, 90 are for tourers, however 36 are for tents, leaving only four small pitches for caravans and motorcaravans (3A electricity). Most of the shaded tent pitches are mixed in with the rental accommodation. The sandy/pebble beach with safe bathing can be accessed from the site. The small restaurant/bar/shop offer a surprising range of goods and food at fair prices. This is a relatively unsophisticated site benefiting from direct beach access.

This is a good base for those who enjoy walking, hiking, biking and exploring. There are vineyards, olive groves, pines and plenty of small trattoria serving locally caught fish and wild boar dishes. This whole coast has a history of trade, war, precious minerals and reputed connections with the Knights Templar and the Crusades. A short ferry ride, with or without a car, takes you from Piombona to the island of Elba, with its rich history dating back to Roman times.
