Britta (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) Appropriate and varied pace. Good collection on the team. Very varied terrain. Possibility to borrow extra equipment (lambskin for the saddle, so "seat wounds" could be avoided 🙂

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

Decoratively implemented rooms (colors & furniture). Absolutely classic in a style that suits an Italian country house. I had the yellow room on the 1st floor with its own bathroom :).
The catering was top notch both at morning, lunch and evening.
Wine ad libitum and water too.
Great generosity from the host couple.

5 star rating

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

Can't really wish for more. The communication on the top from the very first move. All my questions were answered quickly and qualifiedly.


Do you have any other feedback for us?

The whole trip exceeded my expectation.
Donatella and Sadio are amazing hosts who really go out of their way to make sure everything works for their guests.
The whole place oozes harmony, peace and order, and the greatest respect is shown for the animals on the place - horses, dogs, cats and chickens.
From day 1, Donatella sets the framework for guests' handling of the horses, so we all know the rules and expectations. No one is therefore in doubt about what to do before, during and after a ride.
Thanks for a really good experience 🙂
