Food Scene
A really incredible place where to have an enormous and delicious Chianina beef steak. Appetizers (bruschette, fried mushrooms, olives etc..) at will. Incredible first dishes like pappardelle with wild boar (cinghiale), hare (lepra), mushrooms collected in the nearby mountains. You'll find no other tourists than you. Only local inhabitants and habitués. C'est un endroit génial authentique fréquenté par les gens du cru, peu coûteux pour dévorer un quartier de boeuf (chianina), déguster des cèpes frits des montagnes toutes proches, servi à volonté.

Wonderful for aperitivo, for a tea with cakes, for a drink. A trip to the 50s in downtown Montecatini Terme. Nothing has changed since then, even the owner is still the same, at the cash register (not always).

It is a jewel of medieval architecture and urban planning ! It’s a quaint and very quiet little town, quite different from most villages in Tuscany. Its kickname is the "villaggio dei agrumi", because inhabitants have wonderful gardens with lemon and orange trees.

Rocca di Cozzile, three kilometres from Massa, known for its well-preserved castle perched on a hill with a spectacular view. We enter the village from the south from Porta di Mezzodì and find ourselves in front of a magnificent terrace from which we enjoy a sweeping view. I gasp... it's amazing. From its alpine location, on particularly clear days, you can see all of Tuscany’s provinces.

Serravalle Pistoiese, a kind of small and unknown San Gimignano. The village of the towers. its name already points to its destiny. That of "tightening" (serrare in Italian), embodying the natural lock that opens and closes the door to the Valdinievole, and thus a key location in the Tuscan geography over the centuries.

Parks & Nature
Because it is a completely unusual place for Italy and Tuscany. It is a canyon carved in the rock. Access is possible only in Summer. From Ponte a Gaio. It is a 3 hours walk along and inside a dried river bed with some places where you are doing canyoning (water coming up to your breast). It is easy but a little adventorous. Children love it. But go only with kids who can swim.

It is a very accessible park where to walk in the freshness and look for blackberries in summer and mushrooms in autumn. It is a nice and easy walk even with little children where you can discover tree species from the Mediterrean areas. Quite near from the house, a change in the routine and to get fully immerged in nature
