Via delle Ginestre, 25-29, Buriano 51039 Quarrata (Pistoia)
Overlooking the Florence-Prato-Pistoia plain, in the protected Montalbano area, the organic farm, surrounded by woodland, olive groves and crops, rears animals and processes milk selling dairy produce directly.
Baugiano is a prime example of a multi-functional operation, one of the most renowned educational and community farms in Italy. The farm has won a host of different awards (Coldiretti Green Oscar for local development; Copa-Cogeca for female innovation in agriculture; De@terra from the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry and "Terre Fiorenti" for Rural Tourism). It is listed in the “Genius Loci” archive of Italian generativity for its financial good practice and was also chosen to promote the CAP Reform.
The estate covers 13 hectares, and includes the 16th century accommodation structure, a 19th century building that once provided rest and refreshment for travellers known as "Rifugio e Ristoro" (both renovated), a picnic area with a wooden theatre and 5 themed areas for education and family entertainment.
The agriturismo welcomes more than 8000 children each year, offering shows and 20 different educational activities, as well as hosting birthday parties and snacks for groups. The restaurant uses the farm’s own and other local organic produce (milk, yogurt, cheese, cured meats, bread, honey, oil, cookies, jams), and offers traditional Tuscan rural dishes with popular specialties such as “bombolone” filled donuts. Booster seats, high chairs and changing tables are available.
The guest rooms are dedicated to the genius of Leonardo, to music, to Puccini, to art and the Renaissance, to Pinocchio, to the Middle Ages, to castles and to cavalry. All rooms include bathrooms, heating, bed linen and towels, air conditioning (with the exception of one) and children's games and books.
As well as working in partnership with Pistoia Zoo, the Pinocchio Park in Collodi and the Terme di Grotta Giusti spa centre in Monsummano, with the possibility of discounts for guests, the agriturismo is also close to the sea, to Vinci, Pistoia, Prato, Florence, Lucca and Pisa, and to swimming pools, cycle tracks and woodland.
Mountain bikes are available for guests to enjoy long rides along the beautiful pathways of the Montalbano Park.

It 'a very nice place and very suitable for families with children in the middle of nature, beautiful views, lots of animals to see, feed and pet, play area and veranda for possible drizzle. Also on Sunday for 15 euro offer you the morning activity (qs weekend was on the cheese), lunch and a very joyous entertainer who entertains children up to 16. Qs course in case it is not a suitable place for singles or couples, because overflowing with children more or less screaming. We ate so much and well. And 'logic: simple kitchen (pasta with pesto and tomatoes, scones, salad,), but it's all good and genuine. Also at the end there were mountains of delicious local donuts with cream made from them. There were more places like this: a relaxation for parents. Congratulations!
