An example for a day ride:
Destination river "Merse: Overgrown fruit trees surround crumbling farmhouses and invite you for a fruit snack. Riding through the crystal waters of the Merse River, experience how nature has recaptured former agricultural land through the years. On warm days the high point is a swim for riders and horses in the river. After the picnic we visit the abbey ruins of San Galgano. Feel the indescribably mystical atmosphere around the standing remains of the Romanesque chapel, making this one of the most interesting visits.
The hotel is also an ideal base for non-riders. Well marked hiking and mountain bike trails start directly at the hotel and it is not far to the famous towns of Florence, Volterra, Pisa, Massa Marittima, San Gimignano or Siena or to one of the nicest beaches in Tuscany.
The horseback riding program is also suitable for children. Discount for the accommodation of children in double room.
