“Great place for young people”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014

Camping Pappasole is a beautiful camping in Torre Mozza, five minutes by car from Follonica.
Camping is an affordable solution and this camping is perfect for families with children because there are two swimming pools, a beach volley court, a soccer field, two tennis court and a group of animators from the morning to the night that organize activities for the children all day.
In the camping there are also a supermarket, a souvenir shop and a bar but the toilets, the bathrooms and the washbasins are publics: every person use them except the people who staying in the bungalows.
The area where the camping is located is very big, well-organised and clean.
The space, that I had, was big: we were five people with three tents, a car that we used like a storage room, a picnic table with four chairs, two deckchair and still advanced space.
The staff is polite, patient, nice and very friendly.

Stayed July 2014, travelled with friends

Stayed at Pappasole this weekend. Had a great time. We found the resort staff very friendly and helpful, the bungalow was clean and sufficient for a short stay. Toilets and showers were good and clean. Lots of facilities, pools, sports etc. We also went to the beach (a short walk through the pine woods). of course it was crowded (it's August in Italy! if you want a deserted beach come end of Sept). clean and safe for swimming. Later went to the restaurant. We found the staff friendly and efficient. We had bruschetta, seafood risotto, pizza, sorbet, wine, water, coffee. Risotto was excellent and my sausage and porcini pizza was really good (crust how I like it). good that they open early for foreigners and do deals for teenagers later at night. After we went to the entertainment, comedian, dancers etc were good fun (obviously you need to understand Italian to get the jokes etc).

Re, some of the other comments, yes if you were in the final line of tents you would hear the train line, if that's a problem ask to be in the centre or nearer the tennis court end. comment about noise at night - we found it very quiet (one group of teenagers doesn't mean the place is noisy all the time). Entertainment for small kids - can't comment (our daughter is 12), however, in general I saw various activities (of course they would do some of the baby dance in french and german, it's an international village and they are clients too).

I'd say if you want a family holiday in a safe, friendly, well maintained camping village with good food and fun activities then Pappasole is good choice. If you prefer things quieter, go earlier or later in the season (most Italians go to the beach in Aug). We didn't have time but they also help you organise day trips etc to wineries, boat trips, sub aqua etc.
I liked it and would go back.
