Camping Casa dei Prati

The campsite is located on Elba Island, a small island nearby Tuscany, in a quiet and peaceful area and is run by the owners themselves, so is perfect for those who are searching for a place where they can feel at home.

The Camping overlooks the beautiful Gulf of Lacona and its famous sandy beach.
Being in the centre of the island, Lacona is not far from the main towns like Capoliveri, Porto Azzurro and Marina di Campo as well as the most popular beaches.
The island of Elba offers a marvellous variety of scenery, from small hidden coves to long sandy beaches; each corner of Elba holds its own special surprise for visitors. The island is washed by crystal clear water in every shade of blue, a paradise for divers and snorkellers. It's wooded hills make it ideal for hikers, it's panoramic roads so popular with mountain bikers.

The campsite is run by me, my brother and my mum. Me and my brother were born on the island. My mum is from Thailand. We speak Italian, English, Thai, Spanish and German a little bit. Next to the campsite we have a small farm, we produce extra virgin olive oil, some fruits and vegetables, grapes. We are looking for people who can help us with the maintenance of the garden and our accommodations, with painting/decorating the property facilities, with a wide range of repairs or building, with keeping the garden and the common areas clean. Volunteers can expect to be treated as equals. We place a high value on friendship and sharing. Volunteers help no more than five hours a day with one free day per week. The volunteer will stay in a shared bungalow or apartment with bathroom or in a caravan. Volunteers are responsible for their own food expenses. We provide some breakfast stuff as coffee, tea, biscuits, milk, yogurt, cereals, toast bread, jam, butter…

Mi experiencia en Casa dei Prati fue genial e ideal para mi primer voluntariado. Es un camping con buena vibra, siempre hay personas nuevas. Las actividades no son tan pesadas y se respetan las horas acordadas y queda mucho tiempo libre para explorar la isla y sus playas. Conocí personas geniales y me sumergí en la cultura Italiana, súper recomendado.
Gracias a Betty y a su mamá por la hospitalidad 🫶🏻

Elba is a wonderful island, thanks to this experience I knew beaches, people and food nearby!
Regarding volunteering, I think that the schedules and meals should be readjusted a bit in exchange, but everything was as we had agreed.Betty I think it would have to be a little more egalitarian among all the volunteers, in the sense that sometimes she made plans without some volunteers, or that she could make an effort to create a good group atmosphere among all.
Francesco, Pam, thank you very much, also to Betty, they are only things to improve :) (in my opinion). Campsite with good facilitie

"La vera vita è questa" solo con queste parole di Betty riusciamo a raccontare cos'ha significato questa esperienza per noi. Abbiamo conosciuto persone stupende, visitato posti bellissimi, mangiato troppa cucina thai e il nostro piccolo caravan.
Stare al campeggio è stato più che entrare a far parte di una grande famiglia, è stato come entrare in un'altra dimensione; siamo rimaste solo un mese (prolungando), ma è stato come vivere qui sia un anno che pochi giorni.
Non potevamo desiderare di meglio.
Grazie di cuore a tutta la famiglia di Casa dei Prati per tutto ciò che ci hanno regalato.❤

Nice experience, in a beautiful island and with lots of free time to explore it. The best part, though, was the friendship with some of the other volunteers I was lucky to meet!
