Chianti Castles Ride & Wine Tasting

Chianti Castles Ride & Wine Tasting
Tuscany Italy

The beautiful farmstead of S. Margherita, built at the end of the nineteenth century and home of the riding center, is situated in the Chianti region located in the center of the Siena, Florence, and Arezzo triangle.

Surrounded by meadows and woods, with views of a medieval castle, the farm is in the rare position to offer its guests the silence of nature broken only by the melody of birdsong, the neighing of horses, and rushing of the river flowing nearby. Here you are welcomed to a week in rural Chianti country surrounded by horses, good company and some of the most famous castles and wine vineyards of Italy.

The scheduled weeks include and 3 full day rides and 3 half day rides, with sightseeing on some afternoons to  the medieval town of Siena and to a wonderful local spa. There will be wine tasting options, relaxation, and if you like - a lively night out in Siena! 
The intent of the riding holidays is to show to the rider the variety of landscape we have to offer, rich in historical buildings and vines, olives trees, and woods, as well as villas, and farms all away from traffic and crowds. We are delighted to show you some of the best Chianti wine farms and offer tasting of the superb wines they showcase. The riders stay in a comfortable country house, eating excellent Tuscany food and wines, riding the well trained horses which alternate their holiday jobs during the year with competing in military or dressage, in a perfect combination of relaxation and discipline.

Non Rider Options:  The location of the farm makes it an ideal base for cycling and hiking, and for those who wish to mix cultural tourism with outdoor pursuits.
