Our wild, eco-friendly campsite is located in the Apennine hills, in an ancient chestnut tree forest far away from roads and cars. Our aim is to create a transient community of long and short term campers with minimal environmental impact. We provide an optional communal meal in the evening using local ingredients and vegetables from our garden. Most evenings we also have music around the campfire and we welcome musicians. Wild camping Paladini is ideal for hikers, walkers, nature-lovers, artists, wood-carvers, musicians, land-artists, wild-swimmers, natural-food lovers and anyone who just wants to relax in a completely natural surrounding where wild boar, deer, foxes and even wolves can be seen occasionally.

Hi there!  I am Irish, musician, hiker & camping enthusiast, and have a great love of this land where I have been living for the past fifteen years.  The forest, rivers, wildlife and nature bring out the best in me and anyone who visits, and my team and I are looking forward to sharing this gorgeous unspoiled part of Tuscany with you soon.  Come and get to know us and other guests at our daily communal meals or around the campfire in the evening where a song or two are never far away.

I stayed at Paladini for almost a week. The atmosphere at Paladini is relaxed and familiar. It is a lovely stay for everyone who loves to stay in a small 'community camping' with (some) interaction. In the morning there are pancakes. In the evening a delicious meal. The pizzeria in Chiozza is a 15 minutes walk away. Castiglione takes around 30 minutes through a beautiful path via the river. The campsite is located in the middle of nature.
I would recommend this camp-space to people who can appreciate a eco-friendly and primitive stay. I had a great time :)

This place is amazing. Great people, cute animals and the right place to connect with nature.

How was the contact with the host?
The host is super friendly and communication worked all fine.

Tips for new guests?
The path is not easy to be found and the roads are partly a little steep and rocky. But there are also nice locals who like to help out finding the right way.
