Castellare di Tonda - Italy

Experience Level

Medieval Tuscany

4 star rating   26 May 2018

A great hols for our ages (70 and 77) but ideally we would have liked shorter rides of 2-2 1/2 hours but more demanding. But that's being picky. The country and views were terrific and the food was hard to beat.
But both our horses had obviously been allowed to get away with murder by previous riders.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

The resort has a spa but its pricing policy was barmy. Free sauna if you paid for a treatment (cheapest 42 euros). We think that the sauna should be free for ITS guests (like the pools).

How could we improve the quality of pre-holiday information that we send?

As already advised it was a great shame we were not advised of all the ITS guests/clients on the hols beforehand. One of our mates sat and ate by herself on evening 1 as a result.

How could we improve the way we handled your booking and payment?

lovely relaxed riding on good if lazy horses; great food; great countryside.
