The magic of the Chianti, the cultural and gastronomic riches of Tuscany.
The unmistakeable vines that adorn the Chianti scenery blend into the Arno valley. Overlooking this scenery from the summit of a hill is Norcenni Girasole Village, the founding site of the Elite Club Vacanze open air tourism group.
Feted for many years as one of the best campsites in Europe, Norcenni Girasole Club is the ideal place for families with children who want to recharge their batteries and spend a fun holiday exploring the beauty and flavours of Tuscany.
From this unique position it's easy to explore the treasures that Tuscany and its provinces have to offer: not just art, but ancient medieval cities, vineyards, cellars and spectacular natural trails.
Above all are the resorts services, a terraced site marked out by trees and shrubs which even hosts a “Glampsite"; the latest innovation in camping created to offer luxury accommodation in 60 super-accessorised Lodge Tents with breathtaking views across the valley.
On the upper part of the hill, while still part of the site, stands the Villa Norcenni, an old stone villa in farmhouse style, now divided into apartments which can sleep up to six people. Furnished and decorated in rustic Tuscan style, the apartments have bathroom with shower, lounge, fully equipped kitchenette, with gardens and space to relax... all in a warm welcoming atmosphere, and topped with an enchanting view. An aparthotel complete with all services and a position, amongst the green Chianti hills, to delight any visitor with its amazing Tuscan vistas.
Situated 5 km from the centre of Figline Valdarno, 20 minutes from Florence and 90 mins from Siena, Norcenni Girasole is on the outskirts of a charming small town about 25 km south east of the Tuscan capital. Don't miss a day trip to local places of interest like the Santa Croce Monastery, the San Pietro al Terreno church (from the 12th century) the Collegiate church of Santa Maria and many other medieval religious buildings.
