Horse trekking Tuscany has a very
particular countryside for its colours, its lights, its landscape
and its perfumes which are unique only to Tuscany. You may enjoy it
the way you like best; we suggest to do so on horseback.
Join us at the stud-farm Podere Palazzone for horse riding through typical
Tuscan hillside. We ride on remote trails, along cypress
alleys, vine and olive yards, reaching small chapels and
ancient farmhouses. In the the Natural Reserve "Foresta di
Berignone", an endless forest populated by deer and
mouflons, we cross rivers and experience horse-swimming
clear waters of the "Masso delle Fanciulle". We may
observe a wild boar strolling around with its kids and enjoy extend
Hanoverians Our horses are Hanoverian
sport horses from our own breed, grown up with infinite
passion. Adventure, sport or simply living nature on horseback...
it's your choice.
Riding school The riding club "Toscana
on horseback" offers high quality horse riding for adults and
children in its riding school. Beginners are professionally
approached to horse riding, while experts are welcome to train themselves in particular in dressage.
Agriturismo Horse riding and more:
Tuscany has turned living into a real Tuscan lifestyle. Experience
it during your stay at one of our agriturismo, where you are
welcome all over the year in a marvellous ancient farmhouse,
whether b&b, half board or self catering. You may chose to get involved in the
sunny sides of local farming, such as the grape harvest, or more easily enjoy its products at
the dining-table. The Tuscan cuisine is based on simple genuine
enriched by the wise use
of herbs; a tradition delivered over generations. Our delicious extra-virgin
olive oil is something you shouldn't miss. Obviously the paramount
Tuscan delight is the Bistecca alla Fiorentina. We barbeque it on
abundant holm embers and accompany it with a genuine glass of home
Tuscany The farmhouse Podere Palazzone is
located on the top of a hill facing the famous medieval town of Volterra, at Pomarance. This is the very middle of Tuscany,
surrounded by the cities of arts Siena, Florence, Pisa and San Gimignano, by Etruscan archaeological sites, by
typical romantic towns, by the famous wine streets of the Chianti and by the seaside.
All of this can be
reached within around one hour. Being adjacent to the classical
tourist routes, we represent a particularly authentic corner of
Tuscany's countryside. We aim at offering a high quality service,
without being artefact, at fair price. We want you to be satisfied
and feel at home so that you fall a little in love with this
piece of Italy.
