Castellare di Tonda - Italy

Medieval Tuscany

5 star rating   18 May 2019

Rosa who has been on 3 In The Saddle rides. Tuscan adventure | Attentive guides who looked after us very well. It met my expectations, maybe a few more canters would have been nice but I understand why fast riding was limited as the terrain was quite hard in places.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

Farmhouse Clean and comfortable and spacious for us two. Only observation was that the kitchen was tired and would benefit from an update with a full oven. Also a mat in the doorway would be useful especially with riding boots.
The food overall was very good and the staff in the restaurant were friendly and efficient. The breakfast was good however a little more variety such as beans sausage and different fruit would have been nice. Slight negative experience with food in the bar as I had extremely salty soup which I could not eat.
[ITS Comment: Thank you very much for your comments, these are really useful points that we will pass along.]

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

Nothing, all good, very comprehensive information sent.

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

None, all good.

Do you have any other feedback for us?

We had a great time and will definitely be looking at our next in the saddle holiday. Hopefully we can combine a non-rider who is a keen photographer with a very keen rider to meet both our needs.
