Chianti Castles and Wine Tasting - Italy

Chianti Castles and Wine Tasting

5 star rating   5 May 2024

Debbie who has been on 6 In The Saddle rides. Just a perfect week in Tuscany | My husband and I each rode 3 different horses during the week. Without exception they were all very well schooled, light and responsive to the aids and fit enough for the long days out. They all coped exceptionally well with the, sometimes, steep and stoney gradients.
Sadio and Donatella do a fantastic job of choosing suitable horses and they are some of the best cared for horses I have ever ridden on riding holidays.

[Abbie from ITS replies: Thank you for much for your lovely feedback. I am so pleased that you enjoyed riding and wine tasting in Italy!]

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

We had a beautiful large airy room with en suite bathroom. Plenty of storage room and very comfortable. Plenty of hot water for a shower / washing. The food is amazing. So fresh and tasty and so much of it. The cooks do a fantastic job. The picnic lunches were just as good and we thoroughly enjoyed every mouthful!

Do you have any other feedback for us?

One of the best week's riding we have ever had. Donatella and Sadio are so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for them. I highly recommend this week if you are fit enough for long days in the saddle. It's not fast and furious riding but we did trot and canter on every ride.

In The Saddle are always my preferred travel agent for riding holidays. Thank you so much for the very personal service you provide.
