  • Description


    We are a group of friends with the most varied backgrounds, among us there are: cooks, artists, gardeners, engineers, masseurs and musicians who have decided to enjoy nature and to let other people enjoy the beauty and simplicity of this amazing place.
    Many of us have been traveling and living in and outside of Europe for a long time so we have come into contact with many different customs and cultures.​
    This makes us aware of the needs and habits of different customers and we want to offer the best of our culture while respecting everyone's expectations. We are an APS (associazione di promozione sociale) "social promotion association" which means non-profit association.

    The underlying principle of what we do is sustainability, respect and the EXALTATION of nature.
    Our activities (workshops, sports activities, games for children) are based on ancient traditions and want to restore the pleasure of simple, healthy and constructive things.
    We want to create a campsite tailored to nature, the environment and people, where cats, bears, families with children, walkers, cyclists but also marmots, deers, artists, leopards and onlookers are all welcome.

    Camping is located in the hills of the Casentinesi Forest National Park .​
    This reserve is well known for its biodiversity of flora and fauna and history but still free from extreme tourism.
    We are located in the middle of this breathtaking area, at an altitude of 800m, which offers spectacular views and a great starting point for walks and bike tours. The larger cities Arezzo, Florence and Siena are just around us and easy to reach for a day trip.
    Curiosity: this place is on the 'green list' (the highest environmental certification for protected areas in the world) and this year it won the IUCN (International Union for the Conservation of Nature)
    Join our family!
