Castellare di Tonda - Italy

Experience Level

Medieval Tuscany

4 star rating   22 September 2018

The riding was steady and in single file. There was alot of stopping to wait for the slowest person. I enjoyed the terrain and the horses were very sure footed but it was quite a slow ride.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

The accommodation was spacious and we had a room each. It would have been helpful to know that we had cooking and storage for food in the apartment. We could easily have accommodated our friend Clare who was told there was no room to share with us. We did not have a car and we walked quite a long way to the stables and the restaurant. We loved the food but would have enjoyed eating with the other riders or maybe had some social time with the guides. The swimming pool at the apartment was great. It was possible to hear everything that was going on in the apartment above us.

[ITS comment: Unfortunately when you initially booked it was into 1x two bedroom apartment (for four people) and this would not have been big enough to accommodate five people. However, just before your date of departure, our partners in Italy were able to offer 2 x two bedrooms apartments. This means that yes, there would have been room for Clare to join you at the last minute.]
