Florence landscape
Tuscany is an extremely diverse region also thanks to its geography. You can stay in the countryside, at the seaside, in the mountains. It offers plenty of itineraries to dive into the past, from the Etruscan civilization to the glories of the Renaissance.
Quarrata is the economic and administrative centre of a 46 square Km territory which is divided in two well defined areas: the first one is dotted with hills and stretches along the northern slopes of the Montalbano; the second one is plain and includes the central part of the Ombrone Pistoiese valley.
The wonderful location of Poggio Desto makes possible to enjoy a lot of diverse itineraries during the same day, satisfying a great variety of interests.
fantastic places


Enjoy a visit of Pistoia, in the heart of the ancient old town, or a guided visit to the villas scattered around its countryside, like the unfinished and wonderful XVII-century Villa of Spicchio, built for Pope Clement IX Rospigliosi (the only Pope from Pistoia) by Gian Lorenzo Bernini.

Thermal and mud pools, massages, beauty treatments, personalized service: all this is possible in Montecatini Terme at its famous spa in Art Nouveau style and at the worldwide famous Grotta Giusti in Monsummano Terme.
The children can enjoy a fairytale stay in Collodi at the Pinocchio Park, or at the huge Zoo of Pistoia, or at the Leonardo da Vinci museum (18 Km) for an educational day.
For the curious, July is high time: street life all night, antique markets; international stars concerts at the Pistoia Blues; and for the lovers of tradition, the ancient feast of the Patron Saint on 25 July with the Historical Parade and the typical Carousel of the Bear.
And if this is still not enough, you can enjoy classical Tuscan itineraries just a few Km away: FLORENCE (30 Km), SIENA (90 Km), THE CHIANTI, PISA (65 Km), LUCCA (45 Km), SAN GIMIGNANO and VOLTERRA; about one hour to the beaches of VERSILIA (Viareggio, Lido di Camaiore, Forte dei Marmi).


And let's not forget the eno-gastronomic trips to taste the excellent Tuscan cuisine and its flavors: the olive oil, the wine, the Florentine Tagliata, the chestnuts, the mushrooms, the Lamporecchio Brigidini, the Montecatini Cialde, the biscuits of Prato, the Catinari chocolate (Agliana), the Confetti from Pistoia and the dried figs of Carmignano (a receipt protected by the Slow Food association).
