Alan Rogers Review

The name means Little Fountain as springs provide all the drinking water here. The Maurizio family have worked hard to provide a most pleasant site for campers. There are 60 terraced pitches for touring units on a sloping site, all with 3/6A electricity and shade from mature olives. Once settled on the pitch, cars are parked separately. The 25 m. pool with its separate paddling pool is the site’s strength – it is stunning, safe and free. As you swim you can enjoy the views over the town of Follonica below you, whilst in turn the village of Scarlino sits hundreds of metres above on the cliff top.

A large, very attractive building in the centre of the site, restored in traditional style, houses the restaurant/pizzeria, shop and bar with a rooftop terrace. The food in the restaurant is traditional, keenly priced and served with care. A few bungalows are placed at irregular intervals around the site. The beach is 4 km. away and a free shuttle bus is provided in high season. There is a bus service from the gate and to assist in exploring the amazing choice of famous cities, and a host of other interesting things in the area. There is a huge range from local Etruscan ruins to concerts, trekking excursions and much more. Two sides of the site have minor roads alongside and there is some road noise. This is a site for families (single people under 18 not accepted) and is ideal for exploring or just relaxing by the magnificent pool.
