Farm campsite in the Chianti areaPoggio ai Pini presentation.
Poggio ai Pini farm campsite is the perfect place for those who want an outdoor holiday. Equipped with large pitches for tents and parking areas for campers, surrounded by greenery and sheltered by the shade of our pine forest, the farm campsite is located right inside the Falisca II farm in the town of Certaldo, Florence.
Location of the farm campsite and services
Poggio ai Pini farm campsite is just 800 metres from the village of Certaldo. Certaldo consists of a beautiful medieval hilltop village, overlooking the lower, more modern part of the town with many amenities for people who decide to spend their holiday in the Tuscan farm campsite. Two names have made Certaldo famous from a tourist's point of view: Giovanni Boccaccio and Mercantia.
The first is the famous poet who wrote the Decameron. Often remembered together with Dante, Boccaccio is one of the great pioneers of Humanism. In the lower part of town, there is a statue to celebrate Bocaccio, who made the then small Tuscan village famous all over the world.
The second is the biggest street artist festival in Italy. In the summer, Mercantia provides a whole host of entertainment, dance and theatre for almost a week, as well as interesting local crafts, banquets and beyond. An amazing occasion for those who love this type of entertainment, as well as for families on holiday with children.
