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
Most of the summer activities are conducted outdoors, immersed in nature and under the typical chestnut trees. The horses of the center are perfect for walks on trails and mule tracks, or to delve into the more dense woods. You can also attend riding lessons with instructors and guides. For trekking on foot or on mountain bike there are easy or challenging trails within the great park of the Apuan Alps.
