The new camping village in Val di Cecina, on the Tuscan Coast
A 10-million-euro investment, a total of 64 seasonal and permanent employees, a total area of 17 hectares, of which the Open Air Village covers 9.5 hectares, with 490 pitches and up to 2,000 visitors a day. These are the figures for the new camping village inaugurated today by Human Company. The camping village just outside the village of the same name in Val di Cecina brings the Group's up to nine, expanding its presence in Tuscany, where it has another three addresses: Park Albatros Village in San Vincenzo (LI), Norcenni Girasole Village in Figline Valdarno (FI) and Firenze Camping in Town just outside the Tuscan capital.
The ribbon was cut in the morning in the presence of the Tuscany Region's Councillor for Tourism Leonardo Marras, the Mayor of Montescudaio Simona Fedeli and Claudio Cardini, President of Human Company. In the afternoon, the village opened to the public of all ages, with the involvement of local school children in an exciting treasure hunt to discover not only the new village but also the surrounding beauty spots. There was also an important collaboration with the association of the WWF Padule di Bolgheri Oasis, the first private protected area in Italy, a precious faunal refuge for many animal species: the volunteers created a small educational workshop for children. Immersed in a 17-hectare wood and about 4 km from the beach at Marina di Cecina, the new village promotes the idea of sustainable holidays, favouring the non-development of the area with zero-impact buildings and accommodations that respect the natural environment.
This environmental vocation goes hand in hand with enhancing tourism in the region. Thanks to collaborations with local partners, Montescudaio Village (like all Human Company open-air facilities) promotes tourism in the surrounding area, offering guests a carefully selected range of experiences to explore and discover even the most hidden corners of the region. Acquired in 2019 by the Group, Montescudaio Village was the subject of a major project to renew and implement existing services for an investment of around €10 million between acquisition and complete redevelopment. Today, the facility comprises a 9.5-hectare open-air village with 490 pitches for campers, tents and mobile homes and can accommodate up to 2,000 visitors per day. In terms of services, a new water park, supermarket with take-away and pool bar, info point and entertainment have been introduced. The range of accommodation has been completely renovated and expanded and now includes glamping options such as the Safari Tent, as well as fully equipped mobile homes, including the Greeny, which are built according to the principles of bio-architecture. The village, which will be open until 18 September, employs a staff of 64 seasonal and permanent employees.
