Taking a drive in the Pistoia province in Tuscany, on the way to the small town of Abetone.

Less than 700 people call Abetone home, although they have a lot more company during the winter when many skiers flock to the area to take advantage of the snowy slopes.

The history of Abetone dates back to the 1730s when a large fir tree (an ‘abetone’) was cut down to allow for the building of a customs point for between Tuscany and Modena.

Today, it’s a lovely place to go for a white weekend away for those who like to ski, or just relax by the fireplace.
