Over on the west side of Italy you have the charming town of Pomaia, which is one of the most Picturesque places on earth. Much of the tourism is based on the Buddhist monastery of of Lama Tsongkhapa which is known to be a breathtaking site.
Some of the other attractions of the area are: skiing and snowboarding during the winter, and in the summer loads of mountain biking and rock climbing. It is also very close to the sea so lots of white water rafting, sailing, fishing, jet skiing etc. The Monastery is known to do special meditation classes which attracts a lot of people, including Richard Gere who comes several times a year.
If you wanted to have a look around and see what else is close by you have the beautiful town of Manciano which is an all round Roman town where nothing has been changed since it was first built, we also have many private villas or even head down to Serravalle Pistoiese which is a very Roman Gothic style town. There is also some great self catering farmhouses in Serravalle Pistoiese All the properties are named after the quarry and the work men who worked in the quarry that was once based in the area. The village has some great direct travel routed to all the major important cities in Tuscany which are all no more than an hour by train. So you will always have the chance to go into the city with the hustle and bustle, sit back relax in the mountains or just do a nice few days of great tourism.
