This trip is a perfect combination of horseback riding in Siena, cooking classes with the Chef and sightseeing to destinations of cultural and historical interest. Return to the convivial atmosphere of the Castello’s spacious dining room and Tuscan kitchen for a memorable finale to the days’ activities.
Situated in a tranquil region southwest of Siena, the circular stone walls of the Castello di Tocchi serve as a hospitable central base for either full and half-day rides into the surrounding countryside. From the lovingly restored suites of this medieval hamlet, which was built on the foundations of a 12th century castle, riders have an opportunity to experience the enduring magic of Tuscany.
This itinerary is also available during the winter months, based out of Villa Ferraia. The Villa is rightfully featured in ONCE IN A LIFETIME TRIPS: The World’s 50 Most Extraordinary and Memorable Travel Experiences by Chris Santella (Clarkson Potter, May 12, 2009). Its amenities and location allow for a variety of activities when and if riding is not appropriate due to weather, such as visits to local wineries and hot springs, or sightseeing tours, making this a unique and enriching winter Italian riding experience.
