Monte Brugiana is located in the heart of the Apuan Alps, surrounded by nature, in a wonderful atmosphere, near the crest of the Apuan Alps and overlooking the nearby Versilia.

The refuge, despite being in the middle of the nature, at just 20 minutes from Il Bottaccio, is easily accessible. The farm is also involved in horse breeding. Paolo Monteleone, instructor FISE, professional guide for alpine horse trekking, takes care of all aspects. He is the protagonist of the great European routes on horseback (as the journey from Lisbon to Massa Carrara) will be pleased to conduct even beginners within the Park of the Apuan Alps and the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines

COURSES

The beauty of the Tuscany inland

The beauty of the Tuscany inland

One of the most loved regions in Italy, Tuscany awakens feelings of delight, with the charming harmonies of its landscapes and its deep-seated identity. It is easy to get lost among the sweet, rolling hills and its never-ending sceneries, the many colours of its flower fields and the pleasant rows of vineyards; still, Tuscany is on most people’s maps also because of its sublime food – certainly one of its best features.
