The Campeggio PuntAla spreads out inside a Mediterranean pine forest, once an ancient hunting reserve of the Grand Duke of Tuscany. In the nineteen-twenties, the Daddi-Giovannozzi family bought the property where, in 1969, a small camping site was set up in the shade of six hectares of secular pine trees, for a holiday “a la naturale”. At the end of the nineteen-nineties the first comfortable, practical mobile homes were launched on the market, and thus the concept of the "made-to-measure vacation" was born, anticipating with a highly innovative offer, the trend of the international market of "open-air" tourism. Over the years the camping site has grown, becoming an open-air structure covering twenty-seven hectares and now an authentic “holiday park” with multipurpose opportunities of services and hospitality. Following the trends of the eco-tourism sector, in synergy with the sensitivity of environmental issues – the PuntAla Camping site works to recreate a “natural lifestyle”, an approach that has been acclaimed and rewarded by national and international environmental organisations.
The PuntAla Camping site has always paid great attention to the ecosystem, sustainable development and responsible use of the natural resources. The Camping site has complied with the protocol for improving the level of tourist reception “Welcome to Tuscany”, setting itself the goal of attaining universally recognised environmental certifications. For this purpose and preparatory reasons it has set up the project “PuntalAmbiente”. The programme consists of creating an environmental system structured according to the UNI EN ISO 14001standard, via which the Camping site intends to offer an incoming service that systematically includes the planning and monitoring of precise environmental goals, which also encourages the guests themselves to gain awareness of the environment and its protection.
By choice....we believe that the best swimming pool is that "natural" one that gently slopes down from the water’s edge to the bordered and safe water of our sea front.
The Campeggio PuntAla enjoys a beachfront position, but due to being very extensive there are several points that be even as far as a maximum of 300 metres away.
The Camping site spreads inside approximately 30 hectares of pine forest and for this reason, almost every single accommodation area is in the shade.
The internal regulations establish that not all pets are accepted. The only exception is access to dogs in the commercial areas provided they are on leashes. Access is always prohibited to the accommodation area. Guide dogs for the visually impaired are admitted. From year to year, during several weeks in the low season, exceptions may apply to small dogs. Please contact our centre to find out which ones are admitted.
The bed and bathroom linen, the main kitchen utensils and provisions all form part of the equipment supplied.
The closest towns, which are about 9/10 km away, are Punta Ala, Follonica and Castiglione della Pescaia. Located inside the structure is a supermarket where it is possible to find all the main foodstuffs, plus 2 bars/ restaurants and a boutique that sells beach apparel, newspapers, magazines, tobacco and certain camping items.
Connections with the public transport are not very frequent. However there is a bus service that connects our structure with the Follonica train station where there is a taxi service. In the area there are all the main car hire companies. For several weeks during high season there is a private shuttle service that runs from our Camping site and other similar structures to Castiglione della Pescaia. Ask for the new timetable from our call centre.
The dates you selected are probably not available. Reset the calendar to search for earlier or later dates. There are no restrictions regarding the days of the week on which you can arrive or depart.
The entertainment service we offer differs from the standard entertainment with animation thanks to daytime “programmes” that are especially designed by professionals in this sector for pre-school and school-age children. In the evenings however, various artistic shows are proposed which are mainly free of charge but at times for a fee, also for adults.
In order to safeguard the peace and quiet, as well as the safety of our guests these vehicles are prohibited. Nevertheless there is a special parking area facing onto the entrance to the resort.
Navigation is in public "free Wi-Fi" mode without any time or traffic restrictions. Access is possible by means of a pass-phrase or social network log-in. ATTENTION: If you need to make professional use of Wi-Fi, we suggest you use a different and more reliable means of connection as the public access service we offer free of charge could be clogged up with a high number of accesses.
The distance from the electrical columns that provide the electricity supply varies from area to area. We therefore suggest bringing an extension of at least 25 metres. However, it is possible to find cords and cables for this purpose at our internal bazaar.
Although not obligatory, booking dinner at both restaurants is recommended.
It is possible to find cords and cables already set up for all your needs at our internal bazaar.
It is possible to pitch a maximum of two additional tents free of charge in the area (of any category except those fitted out by the Camping site) provided the total number of persons registered does not exceed 6.

The service standards of our category require the availability of a doctor on call in the structure. The Camping site has an infirmary which is open at specific hours, usually from mid June until the end of August.
There is an emergency management system that foresees an evacuation plan in case of need (fire, floods, etc.). We invite all guests to study the plan when they arrive in the structure. However, implementation of the evacuation procedure is notified by means of a repetitive siren.

The mosquito is a native insect which is very widespread and typical of the swamp areas located outside some of the borders of the resort. Whenever and if the weather conditions permit, nocturnal raids of the mosquitoes are carried out with insecticides that are absolutely harmless for adults and children. As an additional precaution, guests are usually asked not to hang damp clothes or other items on the veranda during the disinfestations that will be notified in advance.
The tennis courts are available for a fee, likewise rackets and tennis balls. The sailing school provides all necessary materials for its students (however, for the sake of hygiene we recommend you bring your own wetsuits, gloves, footwear and any other equipment you already own).
Only camper vans, car-caravans, motor-homes and air-camping vehicles which are validated for staying in camping sites are permitted to remain on site for more than the 2 hours allowed for loading and unloading baggage and equipment, provided they are in the relative accommodation areas. Exceptions may be made if the safety conditions are guaranteed in some ways. Otherwise, the cars must be parked outside the camping site in the specific parking lots made available for this purpose.
Yes, for several years now we have been carrying out differentiated door-to-door collection of all the various waste and recyclable materials. We invite guests to read the regulations in the facility regarding correct collection and to ask for the relative bags and collection times.

For those who reserve one of the accommodation solutions provided by us (Mobile Homes, tent houses), camp beds (without bed linen or mattresses), as well as cots, high chairs and baby bottle warmers are available on request.
