There is a lot to be said about Altratoscana in Tuscany, Italy! We only lift a corner of the veil here, however the only way to really discover who we are and appreciate this beautiful region, is by immersing yourself in the wonderful experience that is Altratoscana.
At Altratoscana, we focus on holidays where you can enjoy Tuscany’s nature and tranquillity, away from the trodden path. We follow the rhythm of nature and guide you to undiscovered places, either by hiking or donkey treks. We are the only provider in Tuscany for trekking with donkeys and also the only company in this region that offers hiking tours in the Monterufoli-Caselli nature reserve. Imagine rolling hills with fields of all hues dotted with small natural stone outcrops. See the track lined with cypresses leading you to a remote gorgeous Italian farmhouse. Experience the magic and music of nature, discover heavenly waterfalls, and enjoy your picnic under the Tuscany sun… We, at Altratoscana will reveal all the hidden gems of the area. So, what are you waiting for?
Who are we?
Firstly, I am Tinne, part of the Altratoscana team. I have been living in Tuscany for many years and know the region like the back of my hand. After years of working in the business world, I changed direction in 2015. On the one hand to enjoy family life more, on the other to dedicate myself to my true passion: hiking. Therefore, Altratoscana, a small-scale travel agency, was established. Today along with like-minded souls, born and raised in the Pomarance region, I devote myself to nature-friendly holidays in southern Tuscany.
What do we stand for?
Love for nature, sustainability, child-friendly, authenticity, tranquillity, small-scale holidays and teambuilding company activities are the pillars for the holidays we offer. Thanks to our knowledge of the region, we will guide you to the most remarkable places.
Our accommodation is built with respect for nature and perfectly fits into the local architecture. Children can also play here, either in the swimming pool or they can pass time by visiting the donkeys and other farm animals. All agritourism holiday farms use local produce in the kitchen to serve you mouth-watering dishes. Some only use their home-grown and home-made products while others produce their own organic wine too.
Customisation at Altratoscana
In addition to the standard packages, Altratoscana is happy to customise your holiday, travel incentive, teambuilding or other company outing. An extra day of rest and walking distances adapted for children are easily accommodated. We are happy to incorporate your specific wishes for you to get the best out of your hiking or donkey trekking expeditions. You can count on us before, during and after your break away.
