Places to go

The farm is situated on the first hills of Stiava, a small town between the tirrenian sea and the Apuane alps, in the north-west of Tuscany. Protagonist of our landscape is the Versilia's shore where you can find several towns: Viareggio, Massarosa, Camaiore, Pietrasanta, Forte dei Marmi, Seravezza e Stazzema.
This area may offer different kind of amusement: nature, fine arts, food and social life are the main features. A trip from the golden sand beaches, where you will find any sort of bathing establishment, through the wildlife reserve and our famous pinewood (which the most famous is called La Versiliana, where is based an international theatre festival) to arrive at the Massaciuccoli lake, location of the Festival Pucciniano; one of the most beautiful stage for Opera. Pietrasanta offers the world best marble workshops besides the nightlife and the wonderful gastronomic proposal. Every town, even the smallest, offers plenty of events through all the year: food festivals, markets, fine arts shows, sports meetings and anything else to enjoy your holidays.
