“Great Value Family Fun in wonderful Tuscany”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

Have never been family camping before so chose to go with canvas holidays. Weather amazing, tents great, washing facilities clean with lots of hot water! Kids were in heaven with the choice of pools. If you want to see Tuscany without the expense of a villa this is a good option.

We went here, first holiday of this kind, for 8 night in June 2012. Superb holiday. The parc is very well run. There is a very nice atmosphere around the place. We stayed with Keycamp in a mobile home. But there are lots of tents, trailer tents, caravan spaces soot caters for all needs.
Firstly, all aspects of the site are very clean. Toilets, shops, pools, games area etc are very well maintained.
The small shop on site is very good value. There are supermarkets in nearby towns if you're there for a long stay but the shop is decently priced for every day items. They take orders for fresh bread that you can collect each morning.
The pool siðe snack bar is also nice and prices are very reasonable.
There is an on-site pizzeria which is decent, but in honesty thre are much better pizzerias in the nearby town of Casale Maritimo, a five minute drive. La Pergola is a super Pizzeria, excellent pasta and pizza dishes at very reasonable prices. Also a lovely decor.
Le Volte is also in the town, and is a more rounded restaurant. Opens at 7 pm, try and get there early and get a window seat looking out over the magnificent Vineyard Valley below. Superb food, excellent layout and decor and fantastic staff. Again very reasonable prices.
We had a car and were ale to drive about. Cecina is another town nearby, larger than Casale, and super markets etc can be found here. There are several nice beaches within ten minutes drive of Valle Gaia. Avoid Cecina, it is black coarse sand unsuitable for Kids.
If staying here there is a fruit stall outside the camp, on the main road, gorgeous fruit and nice wines, which they make themselves.
We flew into Pisa, 65 km away. If doing this, when coming off, don't come off the Motorway at Cecina Nord. Pass this one and exit at Cecina, the Parc is 5 minutes away then.
If you have a car, Pisa is a must. The City is on the smaller scale for Italy, easy to get around and the Tower is well worth a viewing.
Valle Gaia overall was a sperb Family holiday, brilliant location, lots to do and we'd definitely go back!

This place is lovely. The family run site is well done and they are so helpful. We has travellers cheques that were in euros form last year that we have tried to get cash in various places and could not... But Phillipo got these changed for us after a lot of phone calls but it was no problem to him. The Canvas reps Alex and VIkki were brilliant never anything too much trouble . The pitches are good sizes and shower toilets and washing area's are good and well clean. Will go back and do some trips next time round...

This is a nice small campsite with Keycamp and Canvas who have placements, together with separate plots for touring caravans and tents. The site is well set out and has a small swimming pool complex but no slides. Reception are v helpful and they also run trips to Rome, Florence & Elba. The trip to Rome seemed expensive but well worth it, although it was quite a long day (6.20am to 10.30pm). There is Wifi available and a fairly well stocked shop. The restaurant/takeaway was also good value. We enjoyed our stay here in May/June, although I think it is a little quiet for older children (13+). I would recommend to anyone visiting Tuscany it is about 50 mins from Pisa and 2 hrs from Florence. There are other smaller towns such as Voltera & San Giminaro also well worht a visit.

This is a lovely friendly site, much loved by Brits, Germans and the Dutch. The staff are very friendly and the site is in an excellent location, with a myriad of places to visit within a short drive. Take away excellent, and there is also a well stocked shop on site. Reception are also on site to help.

In addition to this, the plots for tents and motor homes are nice and private. I would recommend this site to anyone and am planning to return in the future.
