Le attività

Casa al Sargente is ideally placed as the point of departure for discovering the area's many historical features of interest: it is within easy reach of Tuscany's artistic cities, Pistoia Zoo and the Pinocchio Adventure Park, thermal spas and sports activities like golf, tennis, mountain biking, horse riding and trekking.

Every corner of Tuscany is rich in history and culture.
Guests at our holiday centre are offered a vast choice of itineraries.
There are many historical and artistic points of interest in the city of Pistoia: Romanesque churches, Medieval towers, villas and hamlets.
The excellent road links make it easy to reach most of Tuscany's artistic cities in less than hour by car.

To avoid wasting time in queues, we recommend advance booking of visits to larger museums.

Everyone knows the physical benefits of thermal spas. Local spas can be found at Montecatini (16.5km) and the Grotte di Monsummano (15.4km).

The hills and many neighbouring roads near Casa al Sargente are ideal for: short or long walks, during which you may encounter birds, pheasant and hares in their natural environment; trekking along the many Montalbano routes; mountain biking (we are situated on the Via della Seta bike route joining Venice and Livorno).

When describing an area's culture and traditions, we must not forget its local products. Olives and vines have been cultivated on the Montalbano hillsides since time immemorial.
Our prized local products include extra-virgin olive oil with its fruity flavour, Chianti wine, seasonal fruit and vegetables. Excellent raw sheep's milk cheese and ricotta are produced in Pistoia, as well as the city's typical sugared almonds, and the brigidini wafers of Lamporecchio.
Many restaurants still serve typical local country dishes: ribollita (bread and vegetable soup), farinata with black cabbage, fettunta, maccheroni with duck sauce, carcerato, castagnaccio and necci (both made from chestnut flour) and berlingozzo.
There are many local open-air festivals with tastings of local products, which take place in spring and summer in the nearby towns and villages.

Our guests can choose from sporting activities such as:
Golf: Tuscany is an ideal area thanks to its temperate climate and naturally rolling countryside. There are two golf courses close by: Golf club la Pievaccia at Monsummano (13.5) and Golf club Quarrata.
Tennis: the nearest tennis courts are at Serravalle Pistoiese.
Horse riding: the Montebuono stables can offer everything you need as well as organising country rides on horseback.

An afternoon in contact with nature, perhaps exploring the adventures of Pinocchio or animals from all over the world, is a unique experience for children as well as for adults!
