Five mountain huts for your winter holidays in Tuscany

Looking for destinations for your winter holidays? We took care of it!

There is nothing better than a beautiful mountain retreat to complete a beautiful outdoor adventure. The long walks, the skiing (by the way, here are the Tuscan destinations that we recommend!), snowshoeing, put a strain on the body ... And at some point you feel the need for a nice warm place to relax and refresh yourself a bit.

A self-respecting winter holiday must include a stop in a refuge, and we have prepared a nice list all for you, so that you can organize yourself in advance. Have fun!
