Spent five days at Norcenni Girasole Club with my nieces in early September '13 and had a great time with them. Booked via Key Camps, who were very organised and helpful setting us up.
Didn't need a car - flew in to Pisa, it's a 2 hour journey (connections permitted) via Florence to the camp site via the train; includes a couple of changes, but simple and much cheaper than hiring a car. Although TrenItalia can be a little unreliable, so give yourself a bit of leeway coming back. On arrive at Figline train station, call the phone number (there's a English one if required) and the site will collect you for a small charge. Don't walk there, especially if you have kids - route isn't suitable.
Up in the hills, about 5km from Figline Valdarno centre, the site is secure, has two village areas; each with great pools, slides, restaurants and snack areas plus a Spar market and Bazaar. The Spar has a deli, stocks fresh produce and wines amongst other treats and essentials. The wines and oils are local and good value.
We eat at all the restaurants; the food is very good and modestly priced with a wide range of Italians options; much more than pizza & pasta. The bar area has a playground for the kids and shows major sports all day on big screens.
The site is large and busy, but had no problems getting loungers by the pool or seats in the restaurants.
The mobile was compact with a decked area for eating out with a pretty cool vista. The unit had everything we needed; gas hob, fridge, kitchen utensils, bedding, power outlets, warm showers etc. Although we paid a small price for the essential pack (not included) which provided washing liquid, washing pads, a tea-towel and lighter.
Overall, a great site in a great location, would recommend.
