Castellare di Tonda - Italy

Experience Level

Medieval Tuscany

4 star rating   29 September 2018

The rides had the most stunning views of Tuscany, but because of that the pace was slower to what we have been used to on previous riding holidays, it was very hilly and stoney in places, we spent a lot of the time climbing up to get the views which was amazing but what goes up must come down ! it was a little scary to begin with going down the steep stoney tracks but the horses were extremely sure footed so it soon became less of a worry, the guides had the horses safety and our safety as top importance all of the time.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

The location of our rooms were great as we were all in the same area, having our own pool was amazing, also having a bedroom each was good, however some of us did suffer a bed bug bites though.
The food the first night was amazing it was buffet style and had a massive choice of excellent food, then through out the week we had a menu to choose from, that was good but by the end of the week we were getting a little tired of the same thing, it would've been nice to have had a change of menu mid week.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
