Apart from staying in the peacefulness of an Old Farm in Garfagnana and tasting the flavours of traditional Garfagnana cooking, we organize and offer you the chance to do various activities. We recommend you to come to Braccicorti by train with your bikes and leave your car home: we will pick you up at the railway station with our minibus.
We can plan a program to suit your specific needs, for individuals or groups, for a week or more or for days trips and short periods. With the information gathered from your request and your particular interest we use our active side of the agriturismo, an official hiking guide and Garfagnana Adventures having the experience to run and operate tours and the variety of activities that are on offer: biking, hiking, kayaking, etc.
We can create custom packages for our guests, for individual or for groups, or one can use local information and route notes that can be provided to move around independently.
The Regional park of the Alpi Apuane and the National park of the Apennines of Tuscany and Emilia, both within easy distance by car or walking from Braccicorti.
There is a good network of well marked trails, weaving between the traditional chestnut woodland, rivers and open mountain ridges, offering one glorious views of an unknown corner of Tuscany.

There are many mule tracks and unmade roads, and other trails in Garfagnana, for all times of the year and easy to hard technical level.
In the Farm we have hire mountain bikes: available and we are able to collect people from the local railway station, organize day trips and weeks for the most interesting trails.
Some ideas for Mountain Biking can be found in the book ''Garfagnana by Bicycle'', by Lucia and Bruno Giovannetti.
Part of grounds of the farm of Braccicorti has now been changed from vines to a 6 hole par 3 golf course, approved by the Italian Golf Federation. Here one can find a driving range with covered area, putting green and the Club house for the Golf Club Garfagnana.
We can offer you the chance to have a go at golf, and for those who have not tried before, the opportunity for lessons with a golf teacher of the Garfagnana Golf Club.
