We were originally going to stay in a tent, but when we got there and saw there was no real security (I've been camping in places where the tents are padlocked) we upgraded to a mobile home, which was very comfortable and impeccably clean. Town is only a twenty five/thirty minute walk away.
Clean and near campsite with lovely gardens. A little far out from Siena but able to get there by bus. Lacked a little atmosphere compared to other places I have stayed.
There were large bull ants in the bathroom. A dose of insect spray by the cleaner may have helped.
Great! Frequent busses into town, or even walk (35 minutes) if you prefer. Great pool. FYI, when you select a "Tent" on hostelworld, you get a tent you get to sleep in, you don't need to bring your own, great for backpackers on a budget. In the tent are 2 cots with a mattress pillow and blanket on each, bring your own sheets.
Sounded like termites in my room over a number of nights. Couldn't find laundry facilities.
By changing a few things this campsite really could be fantastic. Wifi- you have to pay! Pool- you have to buy a swim cap to swim. I'm all for a clean pool but make the caps free. We then bought caps only to be told it's raining so we couldn't swim (??) No towels. No coat hangers. No door mat so gravel and leaves get tracked into room. Bungalows were in the shade so lovely and cool in summer. Great restaurant for dinner though it's a shame pizza not available for lunch.
The service at the in site restaurant for dinner was less than great. Everyone else who arrived after us were served dinner before us and we only ordered simple meals compared to theirs. Breakfast service was great and food also! The facilities for washing were less than impressive for the shear size of the site to only have 2 washers / dryers. The machine we used did a terrible job, left our clothes dripping wet and had to tumble dry them twice but still wet we had to re wash again at Florence

The staff could be more friendly and helpful. The bar closes at werid times. The room was fine and had it's own bathroom. Far from city centre.
The inside of the room is nice but we had several problems. The rooms were on wheels so sometimes because it moved very easily, you felt like you're in a boat which almost made me puke and was not pleasant. the bathroom had the small of a K7 spray all the time, I truly hope that they didn't spray something which was bad for us. The wifi isn't free which is a little bit annoying.
This is real camping, not like other camping villages we've stayed in - no electricity in tents (you get given a portable lamp), no door on tent or lockers (I didn't feel safe leaving valuables in the tent). Restaurant good, pool really nice (bring a swim cap). The onsite supermarket is very basic and the closest store is quite a walk away. It is quite far out of Siena old town but the bus leaves from a few meters away. Ultimately, it's cheap and get what you pay for.
Not much to do here. They have a pool but its always crammed with kids and doesn't look inviting. You have to buy a swimming cap to be able to swim. The onsite restaurant has limited opening hours which can be a pain. A pretty basic camping ground, but decent enough for a night or two.
Had a great stay. Stayed in a twin room/little cabin thing. A welcome relief after the tents from previous places we'd stayed! Had a fridge too which was a nice surprise. YES, you do have to pay for wifi but it is definitely worth it, we had reception everywhere.
It was okay place to stay, Internet was only available in certain WiFi areas and it was quite pricey. Staff and bus timetable was helpful although they should add return timetables also. The bungalow was very minimalist.
Unreal campsite , bit of a hike from train station up a winding hill. But was an awesome campsite for 2 nights no fee wi fi but 4 euro for 24 hours and a great connection..
We stayed in late November and the small heater in the room didn't make any difference in warming the cabin. The room/bathroom was very clean! We stayed in Siena after the check-out time and they held our bags for us no charge, which was nice. Sunday has limited bus stops on this route so keep that in mind! FYI: There really isn't all that much to do in Siena so unless you have specific things to see, one day is all you really need.
Loved staying in the cabins, they were clean and had everything we needed! The cafe had good coffee and hot chocolate to.
A little outside the city, but easily reachable by bus, facilities are great, there is a pool. The mobilhomes do not have AC.
Bungalows are clean and decent. fridge is a plus! Location is ok, close to Siena by bus from up the street (runs more on Italy time, not to timetable). Internet is not free - service only outside of bungalows Great pool - EXCEPT for the silly swimming cap rule. you must also BUY this swimming cap at 2.50E. This should be included in the nightly price, which i think is a tad on the overpriced side for what you get compared to other bungalow camp sites we've stayed in.
Very convenient for the bus into Siena and the pool was very welcome to cool of from the hot summer weather, although it did get a bit overcrowded at times. The cabins have outside space which are pleasant and cool in the evenings which we used a lot. The cabin also had a fridge which was very useful. The on site shop was very overpriced, going to a supermarket to stock up saved us a lot. We stayed here for 5 nights and would return, a good budget option in Siena.
