Camping Riva dei Butteri

Camping & Bungalows Riva dei Butteri: In Southern Tuscany along the Maremma coast, in the Province of Grosseto, as part of the municipality of Scarlino, right on the border of Follonica and only 100 m from the beach and the sea away, is situated the campsite Riva dei Butteri. Besides the pitches for campers, caravans and tents, the campsite has confortables bungalows, camper-service, bar, restaurant and mini-market. Dogs are always welcome to our campsite!

The Campsite Riva dei Butteri takes its name from the closeness to the sea, whose shore (it. riva) is characterized by a wide and long sand beach and by the riding herdsman, the so called Butteri, whose job was to "shield" the cattle, in other words to look after, to follow, to guard and to accompany entire herds of the Maremman cattle and horses that were living in a wild state, to brand them in order to prevent theft. It is narrated that in 1890 the butteros of the Duke Castani di Sermoneta challenged with complete satisfaction of victory the most known and expert herdsman of Buffalo Bill's crew, on tour in Rome. Embedded in a park of acacia trees, the campsite Riva dei Butteri is extending over a flat carpet of green grass, which simply makes him unique in the area.
The long and beautiful white sand beach is only 100 m away and can be reached, walking through a thriving, adjoining pine forest that characterizes the whole coast. On the beach it is possible to go to the public beach or to make use of the bathing establishments (blu flag from 2002 until 2011). The structure, besides the plane pitches that are ideal for any type of equipment, is supplied with electricity of a maximum of 3 ampere. It is also equipped with confortable bungalows in insulated wood that can accommodate up to five people.
