Glamping in Tuscany: sustainable holidays with all comforts
Are you excited by the idea of spending a holiday in complete freedom but don’t want to give up the comforts of a hotel room? Glamping is the solution for you! The latest trend in green holidays is spreading throughout Italy and particularly in Tuscany: we present Pian delle Ginestre and Podere Prataccio, the first ‘Fair’ glamping sites.
To experience a holiday in close contact with nature, you don’t have to sleep in a sleeping bag, lying on an air mattress! The idea of freedom of camping has married the glamour of luxury holidays to give birth to glamping, the new frontier of sustainable tourism.
In glamping, you can enjoy a holiday in the open air with only the sounds of nature in the background, and then fall asleep under the stars in a tent… as comfortable as home! Beds with soft mattresses, comfortable furniture made of natural materials, a private bathroom, and plenty of space all around, where you can also easily have a swimming pool or hot tub.
A popular style first and foremost in Northern Europe, in Italy glamping often originates as dedicated areas within an agriturismo or other structures characterized by the integration of hospitality and environment.
Glamping are oases of peace and relaxation, ideal locations to regenerate and recharge your batteries while experiencing a unique form of sustainable tourism!
It is no coincidence that glamping in Tuscany has immediately taken root, giving travelers the opportunity to immerse themselves in the countryside and woods that embrace the beaches of the Maremma. We present two, in the provinces of Grosseto and Livorno, which stand out for their style and sustainability.
Podere Prataccio glamping
Podere Prataccio is an agritourism in Tuscany that offers various hospitality solutions: double rooms perfect for a romantic trip as a couple as well as flats to spend a family holiday in nature, but also elegant tents where you can have an even closer experience with the unspoiled environment of the Maremma, made up of olive groves, vineyards, and woods.
Podere Prataccio’s motto, “the luxury of simplicity“, gives a good idea of the welcome you can expect.
The glamping lodges, practical and elegant at the same time, are built of fir wood and all have private bathrooms, kitchens, and designer furnishings that ensure maximum comfort and openness to the outside world. The glamping tents all have four beds equipped with orthopedic sprung mattresses, but for larger groups, it is possible to add a supporting ‘biker tent’ with two additional beds.
By choosing one of the glamping solutions you will have a fully equipped kitchen and a private bathroom with organic and eco-friendly products. You will also be able to enjoy the fantastic infinity pool at the Podere Prataccio holiday farm, taste the delicious dishes prepared by Anna with organic products from their Albaluna farm, and take advantage of Luca’s expert advice on the many things to do in Tuscany:
- wine tastings in the cellars of Scansano;
- thermal baths in and around Saturnia;
- trekking routes on Monte Amiata;
- rafting on the Ombrone river and water sports along the Maremma coast;
- … much more!
Glamping Pian delle Ginestre

This glamping in Tuscany is located in the woods of Sassetta, off the usual tourist routes, but at the same time close to the beautiful beaches of the Etruscan Coast and the most characteristic Tuscan villages. You can organize excursions on foot, on horseback, or by E-Bike, as well as wine and food tours to taste Tuscan specialties, or simply relax in the garden with a Jacuzzi.
The tents – lodges at Glamping Pian delle Ginestre are simple and comfortable, built with natural materials and harmoniously set in a theatre of centuries-old oaks.
The highlight is the crystal panoramic windows: if you leave the blackout curtains open, you will have the opportunity to literally sleep under the starry sky, lulled by the sounds of nature… get ready to switch off!
You’ll start your day with succulent breakfasts prepared with BIO zero-km and typical Tuscan products: homemade cakes and jams, fruit, and other delicacies that will feed your hunger to discover the natural beauty all around you. At dinner, your host Ilaria will tempt you with typical Tuscan dishes, as well as original recipes that will help you discover new flavors and fragrances.
