In an Apuan valley a few kilometers from the sea stands a village wedged between cliffs and steep woods, where silence and nature are dominant.
The road that runs through the valley reaches the village of Pruno, protected to the north and east by the imposing majesty of Pania and the Costa Pulita del Forato, the Procinto and Matanna, almost to form an impenetrable barrier but open to the south towards the sea. The mountains here do not reach 2000 meters, but while in the best season the peaks are accessible to a good trained hiker, during the winter they make a place for fans of mountaineering. 

In the autumn season everything is lulled by the generosity of colors.
All this 30 minuts in car, and little more with the bicycle, from the plain and from the sea.

Here we offer a good and simple hospitality, an infinity of excursions on slopes o easy family walks. For the more experienced, unimaginable climbs. This is our paradise, waiting for you!
