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.
