Alan Rogers Review of Camping Le Balze
Camping Le Balze is a quiet spot, a little removed from the hordes of visitors around Pisa’s leaning tower, Florence’s Uffizi Gallery or the UNESCO town of San Gimignano. These, however, are all within an hour and a half of the site if historical wanders appeal (and they indeed should). Roaming in the past can start closer to hand with a trip to Volterra to wander around its museums, archaeological park, acropolis, medieval town, palace and cathedral. You could also take a trip to the dozens of vineyards within an hour; this is the Chianti region, after all.
Then, head back to the site to soak up some of that vino with a bite. This terraced site has 90 grass touring pitches with 5-amp hook-up points with some pitches sloping. There’s a bar/café on site for snacks on the terrace and a small shop for stocking up on fresh bread and other essentials. If you need a lazy day on site, pull up a lounger next to the pool and let the Tuscan sun soothe away any throbbing heads.
