Welcome

Agricamping l'Ulivetta is located in the geographical area of Lunigiana, in the North of Tuscany and it represents the ideal place to spend your holiday in contact with nature. Our small campsite allows you to spend a few days relaxing and being able to choose every day for fun at the beach, hiking in the mountains or a cultural visit in cities like Florence, Pisa and Lucca.

Our camping is suitable for a stopover on the the way to or from your vacation, or to extend your holiday for a few days in order to visit the wonderful places in our surroundings. We are nearby the motorway exit Aulla, on the motorway A15 Parma – La Spezia, not far away from the crossing with the motorway A12 Genova – Livorno. We are about 40 minutes from Pisa-Airport, where charter flights land, e.g from Ryan-Air. You can rent-a-car directly at the airport with Avis or Hertz.

Surroundings

Staying at our camping you can discover Lunigiana, a beautiful land in the north of Tuscany, at the feet of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines half way between the sea and the mountains. You will have the opportunity to spend an unforgettable day at the beach, maybe in the renowned   Versilia  (the closest Tuscan beaches are in Marina di Carrara and Marina di Massa) or in one of the picturesque villages on the Gulf of La Spezia, such as Tellaro, Lerici, San Terenzo, Portovenere, the Palmaria-Island, or other beautiful Ligurian towns, such as Levanto Bonassola or the famous Portofino. Less well-known but easily accessible for families are the beaches in Marinella di Sarzana.
