A new adventure


After renovating and re-decorating three wonderful houses, we have started a new challenge. One of these projects is situated also in the Garfagnana, just outside the village where the camping is located. We have been happy to spend all our vacations there for fourteen years. Countless sleepless nights followed after Ernst and Susan learned by chance that the owners of the estate were interested in a new challenge and were looking for a reliable collaboration. The plans were forged!

The team


In daily life Ernst has his own company in renovation and steel construction and he’s the mastermind behind this project. Susan is originally an interior designer and runs the rental of our successful ‘’Strandvilla’’ in Noordwijk, the Netherlands. Nicky has an agricultural background and is involved in the work behind the scenes. And then our all-rounder and shepherd Willem… The perfect combination of knowledge and expertise to set up Rancone lodges.

A great experience


We have had two fantastic first seasons after six months of hard construction. Thanks to the help of our dear friends and family, we have managed to create a very nice place despite the corona crisis. We love a nice atmosphere, relaxed places and happy faces and will give you an unforgettable experience at our great location.
