With its breathtaking scenery (think rolling hills, olive groves, vineyards and idyllic villages), to-die-for food and warm, friendly locals, Tuscany is a great choice of destination for a dreamy family holiday. This super child-friendly campsite ticks all the boxes for a fantastic getaway on a budget, with three natural, spring water swimming pools, restaurant, bar, playground and even a cinema. You can pitch your own tent, or hire one of the pre-erected Bungalow tents, or mobile homes. The site is perfectly placed for a spot of hiking and cycling, and is also just a five-minute walk to the picturesque village of Sarteano, complete with its own castle. If you’re after a Tuscan break on a budget, this is a fantastic choice.
