What you'll do

A wonderful experience into the fresh and sweet waters of Resco’s river. This river, for millennia, drawed this valley and it gave us landscapes of immeasurable beauty. Just one hour walking through a marvelous countryside to reach a natural swimming pool. You will have the opportunity to spend relaxing hours in a wonderful place away from modern life, in contact with the locals, which I guarantee to be the most picturesque there can be in Tuscany and its surroundings. You will be welcomed as friends, to Buzzico, we all know each other even when we don't know each other. A place to meet, get to know each other, talk, leave something of ourselves even for a single time.
Other things to note
For those with their own vehicle there are no place restrictions.
Lenght about 3 Km. Easy path.

I was born in this land. I grew up on this river, since I was a child my parents brought me up these places. I know this river and these mountains better than my house. I have had this experience since 3 year, all my clients remain entranced by the beauty and tranquility of the place. I love to make this place known and the stories that surround it. I am a hiker environmental guide recognized by the Tuscany Region, I work as a gardener but as soon as I can I am happy to bring new people to relax on the river.

I did this experience solo. The views were amazing and Frederigo gives you a lot of time to yourself. This is great if you're looking for a getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city and want to hang out in nature. Frederigo also packed some great snacks. This would be a great experience to do with friends!

I went on this experience as part of a solo travelling trip in the area. Frederigo assisted me with train journeys etc to enable me to arrive at the meet up location. He then took me up into the mountains, to a remote spot only known to the locals. The walk up through the forest was lovely, nothing too taxing for those who would need an easy walk though. Remember to take insect repellent, we were hounded by horse flies initially, not his fault of course, but worth knowing in advance of a trip. Frederigo told me about different spots along the way, esp stories and monuments regarding WW2. After about a 20 to 30 minute walk we arrived at a magical little swimming spot where we changed and jumped into the cool river to enjoy some true moments of peace and tranquility. Frederigo took photos of the experience that he forwarded to me later, it was nice to have these as a keepsake of my trip. I felt relaxed and like I had had the opportunity to just stop and take stock for a morning...which was much needed. Frederigo provided a little picnic along with beer and wine and a tuscan snack too. He went to lots of trouble. He also gave me the chance to just be at peace with my thoughts and nature which was great too. A lovely trip, worth exploring. Many thanks for the opportunity. Kara x

Thank you so much to Federigo for picking us up from the train station before beginning our walk to the river. We learned all about the local area and local history on our walk to the river (around 45 minutes) as Federigo is very knowledgeable about the history and areas of interest. Then we arrived at the river just in time to cool off in the water and appreciate the scenery. We also had no need to take any of our own photos as Federigo and his nice camera did all the work for us and sent us a series of photos after our trip. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this experience to anyone, it was unforgettable. We also got a lift back to the train station which worked perfectly.

Federigo è una persona molto disponibile, è capace di intrattenere i propri ospiti lasciando godere con discrezione i momenti di relax durante l'esperienza. È riuscito a catturare con l'obiettivo della propria macchina fotografica alcuni bellissimi momenti ed è stato gentile a inviarci prontamente gli scatti. Il luogo è unico, un'oasi di pace da provare assolutamente se si vuole passare una giornata lontani dalla frenesia della città, immersi nella natura e accompagnati solo dal rumore dello scorrere del torrente.

This was a true local experience where you take a lovely walk through beautiful scenery to a truly magical watering hole and forget the hustle and bustle of city life for an afternoon. Great spot to take wine and cheese and just chill. Frederigo was fabulous from start to finish! I was on the experience by myself and Frederigo picked me up on his motorbike and dropped me back at my villa...exceptional service!
