Welcome to Rancone Lodges

Our camping “Rancone Lodges” is situated on a beautiful estate on the banks of the Serchio river in the Garfagnana, Tuscany. This is an authentic part of Italy where it looks like time has stood still and where tourism has not emerged.

In addition to eight lodges and eight bell tents, we have a small-scale campsite with twenty places for campers, caravans and tents.

Camping style with a bit of luxury...

Experience the luxury of our fully furnished accommodations or find your own spot on one of the free camping places along the river. If you choose for our lodges or belltents, you will have no stress on arrival. You don’t have to set up a tent or make beds, but be welcomed with a delicious cappuccino or a cool drink and settle down comfortably in your accommodation. Your holiday can begin! Just an hour and a half's drive from Pisa and you are surrounded by an oasis of peace, nature and culture.

Fortunately, we had a fantastic high season without pre-season, so we were able to keep our heads above water in 2020. The enormous investment we have made to set up Rancone Lodges means that we do not have a buffer to survive when corona hits the water again next year and we are not able to (however much we would like to) refund the deposits. However, we can convert the deposit into a voucher that can be used at a later time. We also offer the service to refund the deposit if we can rent the accommodation to someone else for the dates booked. Of course we hope, just like this year, to have a great season!

We are going to expand in the winter of 2020/2021! Don't worry, the small scale and pleasant atmosphere will certainly remain. The rough planning is to add five bell tents and to create ten extra camping places for tents. New places for bell tents and tents will be created next to the river under the trees. Wonderful places to completely unwind! The gravel has been removed from the camperlane and the pitches have been sown. Furthermore, the lounge bar will be fully managed by us, which means that you can relax all day in this nice place!

Along the river it is great to relax on one of the comfortable sunbeds on the deck while the kids enjoy themselves for hours building dams. Or take a dip in the swimming pool and find a place on the nice lounge beds with shade. Or if you want a more active vacation, the local area has a lot to offer!
