Alan Rogers Review
Marina Chiara is alongside and twinned with Camping Voltoncino (IT66800) and all facilities are shared. This is a traditional Italian beach site with pitches mainly positioned under a cool canopy of pine trees. There are 133 flat pitches with 3A electricity, of a variety of sizes. They are close to the sea but none have beach views. The bar/restaurant/pizzeria and an attached shop looked very smart when we visited. They overlook a grassy entertainment area. The combination of amenities at the two sites gives a very large choice of activities and services. The beach is of fine dark sand and covers the length of the two campsites.
Day trips to local attractions are a feature, along with visits to the Parco Natural Della Marenna and various Etruscan and Roman sites close by. The Argentario peninsula is attractive and a ferry will transport you to the offshore island of del Giglio. There are thermal baths at Saturnia which are fun to visit. These family owned sites have delighted Italian camping families for years and the friendly atmosphere is great to share.
Two well positioned sanitary blocks provide some cabins with shower, toilet (mixed styles) and washbasins. Showers are of a very high standard (on payment by token). Cold water only at washbasins, sinks and for laundry. Rooms for children. Facilities for disabled campers. Washing machines. Well stocked shop. Bar and restaurant/pizzeria. Entertainment area. Amenities at the sister site. WiFi over part of site (charged). Dogs are not accepted.
