Imagine a site totally immersed in the nature, gently shaded by trees, near to peculiar rocks grabbed in the grip of old, strong roots... you hear different kind of birds and the gentle sound of a brook coming from just a few steps away...
As you approach you discover a natural pool when you can bath in fresh waters.
At night, near the campfire, you are surrounded by dozens of shining fireflies...
Now take a look at the photographs... ;)
The camping can host up to six tents.
- A big tent for 3/4 people with airbeds and smaller tents are also available with an extra.

We are located on the slopes of Monte Amiata, an extinct Tuscan volcano, near the ancient village of Seggiano.
Less than one hour to Siena and Grosseto and two hours to Florence and Rome, the area surrounding Seggiano presents opportunities to explore both natural and cultural attractions.
From the many thermal baths less than 45 minutes away (San Filippo, San Casciano, Petriolo, Saturnia, Bagno Vignoni), to Mount Amiata (just 15 minutes away) with its magnificent beech forest- a true natural cathedral that is green in summer and red in autumn - and with its winter ski resort, to the Val D'Orcia (a UNESCO heritage site) with its majestic sweeping views.
Not to forget the sea: the sunny beaches of Castiglione and Rocchette are only one hour away.
For lovers of art and spirituality the Garden of Daniel Spoerri, ( another UNESCO site) is just 3 km away offering a fascinating tour through modern art and sculpture. 15 minutes away, the the beautiful Abbey of Sant Antimo is known for its' monks Gregorian Chants. Twenty minutes away Merigar is the site of the Dzogchen community, a center of Tibetan Buddhism which organizes retreats, instruction and courses of practice each year attracting people from around the world.

First and foremost, yes - there are actual fireflies all around the camp at night. A gorgeous scene! I arrived by scooter up a steep gravel hill to get to Le Case Della Buca. Massimo and company (two awesome WWOOFers) greeted and invited me to have lunch with them. Afterwards, Massimo and I devised a trip around the area that I would take by scooter the next day. He was very helpful and organized my whole stay.
There are two major pieces of advice I would give to potential guests: First, have transportation. Yes, there is a busstop nearby - but there are so many sights to see (especially all around Val d'Orcia and Via Francigena) that would be difficult, if not impossible, to view by public transportation. At the least, rent a good hybrid bike for the hills. Secondly, the campground is designed for a group. There are hammocks, a firepit, swimming holes in the river... A grand setup for good times! I traveled solo and unfortunately camped solo - I couldn't take advantage of this place alone and it went underused. If you book here, do yourself a favor - get your friends together, rent a car or a couple scooters, book a full weekend, and enjoy this place as it should be enjoyed!
The environment is amazing!
We stayed in the caravan for 35€ per night. Caravan had some ants issues which Massimo tried to take care of.
We had to use the bathroom in Massimo's house which was not available when Massimo was not at home.
We would not recommend the caravan but the apartment looks really nice.
