Camping Le Capanne

Camping Le Capanne

At Camping Le Capanne you will enjoy the real Tuscan life. The campsite is in the middle of Tuscany, with famous cities like Pisa, Siena and Lucca nearby as well as the beautiful sandy beach of Marina di Bibbona. Camping Le Capanne is surrounded by pine, olive and eucalyptus trees, providing plenty of shade for the camping pitches and rental accommodations.
The water park is great at Camping Le Capanne, thanks in part to the new addition of the Freddy Water Castle. This ultimate children’s playground has lots of water games and as many as 8 slides. The other pools are also great for relaxing in, as are the green lawns surrounding them.

The campground is not very big (324 spots) but it feels like you have entered a small village. This is due in part to Piazza Grande, the central square. Here the weekly market takes place, you will find the restaurant, bar and ice cream parlor and in the evening you will enjoy great shows. The supermarket is also located in the square.

Camping Le Capanne is a child-friendly campsite, making it ideal for families with (young) children. The campground is car-free and there is super much to do. The mascot, Freddy the penguin, is well incorporated throughout the campground. The children receive a Freddy passport upon arrival, allowing them to keep track of exactly what activities they have participated in. You can even rent Freddy mobile homes! Thanks to the large proportion of Dutch people, the children will also have made friends quickly. Camping Le Capanne is very pet-friendly, so your dog is very welcome.

Thanks to the fine atmosphere at Camping Le Capanne in the beautiful Tuscan countryside, you are sure to enjoy a wonderful vacation in Tuscany.

Camping Le Capanne has a great pool and in addition there is the new Freddy Water Castle. The pool is divided into several sections and different depths. There is a smaller pool for children, a larger and deeper pool for adults and there is another separate paddling pool with fun play equipment including a slide. The large pool also has a separate slide and in the hot tub you can relax for a while. But you can also do so at the Pool Bar, which is literally in the water. Here you order a nice cup of coffee, smoothie, sandwich or ice cream.

However, the newest addition completes the water park at Camping Le Capanne: the Freddy Water Castle is truly fantastic! This new lagoon pool of 1800m2 and up to 40 cm deep, consists of a huge castle no less than 14 meters high. The castle features numerous water games and 8 slides. In the evening, the castle is beautifully lit and, thanks to virtual effects, the castle is brought to life. We bet your kids won’t want to leave here!

The water park is very spacious so you are not lying super close to your neighbor on one of the fine sunbeds. There is artificial grass everywhere which is nice and it stays nice and clean. Only drawback is that it does get hot from the sun. Parasols are provided, but keep in mind that there are few shaded areas around the pool. What is unfortunate is that there is no toilet block at the water park. You have to go to the nearest bathroom building outside the water park for this.

Besides Camping Le Capanne’s amazing water park, you can also go to the beach in Marina di Bibbona. This beach is about 2.5 km from the campsite. From mid-June to the first week of September, a free shuttle bus runs to the beach. You can get off at two places: at Pineta, where you can walk to the free dog beach, and at the beach of Forte di Marina di Bibbona, where you will also find a beach bar for a nice lunch or cool drink. If you prefer to lay your towel on a beach bed rather than on the coarse sandy beach, there is the option of renting a beach bed and umbrella.
