Castellare di Tonda - Italy

Experience Level

Medieval Tuscany

5 star rating   1 September 2018

The tuition we received the first day was an impeccable introduction to Western Riding, being watched over by both Marco our guide and Franco the trainer made us feel at ease both with the style and our horses. We could see the care and attention they gave to us and the horses to be certain in their choices of pairing.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

In Italy you eat well and eat in quantity. In both restaurant and on Trail rides there was always plenty of food and you were encouraged to eat your fill. The Farmhouse apartments are all light and airy with high ceilings and are a great blend of traditional housing with modern amenities.

Pure escapism. Great food, countryside, horses, staff, wine and accommodation. Recommend this holiday to anyone - non-riders included just maybe fly through Pisa.
