Touring in Tuscany and Elba

Enjoy easy going island life set amid the tranquil and elegant borders of tiny Elba - the island with a history, and legacy, much larger than its size would have you think. But, first a little splash about in the fantastic five-star confines of Norcenni Girasole, a real Tuscan treat. Enjoy this Splash Parc’s array of attractions before diving headlong into the sensory overload of Tuscany: its hilltowns, beaches, fabulous food and exceedingly attractive pace of life. What’s the rush, anyway - you’re on holiday!

hu Norcenni Girasole Club ★★★★★

Tuscany | Italy

Take a look at the widescreen views from Norcenni Girasole and we think you’ll agree - this is one of our most spectacularly situated parcs. The Tuscan hills and the charming towns of the Chianti Trail are tantalisingly close. This large parc is steeply terraced with some fairly high pitches, so what you gain in gradient you make up for with panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. There are two pool complexes that include waterslides and a lazy river, and the parc runs its very own cookery course. 

If relaxing is more your thing, you’ll find a superb spa complex too. Take time to unearth Tuscan treasures like the small town with big ideas - San Gimignano, with its 14th century skyscrapers. And don’t miss a trip to Florence, just 25 kms away, for an object lesson in Renaissance majesty.

Ville Degli Ulivi ★★★

Elba | Italy

It’s hard not to fall for Elba - in much the same way that Napoleon did. At the island’s capital city, Portoferraio, you can visit Napoleon's houses, as well as the attractive marine area offering boat trips into the shimmering Tyrrhenian Sea. For hikers, there's a treat at Monte Capanne - at the peak you will have amazing views across the island. But, closer to sea level, your parc is nestled in gloriously unspoiled Elban countryside. This is a tranquil and easy-going parc with a fantastic beach (one of the best on the island) within a few strides from your door. 

On parc, there’s a pool complex including an outdoor and kids’ pool, a waterslide, and a spa and wellness centre. Island living, Elba-style, really has a lot to recommend it. Don’t leave without a stroll along the harbour of Marina di Campo; where you’ll find a lunch spot you’ll fall in love with.
