Veneto's Castles and Mountains Ride
Northern Italy Italy
In the sunny calm of the Isola Vicentina hills, a few miles from the center of Vicenza and a short train ride from Venice, this lovely estate provides an ideal combination of characteristic country accommodation with Italy's long tradition of hospitality. The Western-style ranch will appeal to those who enjoy an energetic, open air lifestyle and also those in search of a place of quiet relaxation that invites contemplation.
Miles of beautiful landscape is available for excursions through the beautiful woodland of the mountain foothills. There are even longer expeditions offered, suited for the most demanding and experienced of riders who can cope with long hours in the saddle through the ever-changing Italian landscape.

No ingredient is lacking, easily transforming a healthy ‘country’ rest into a most memorable equestrian getaway. The estate has an unusual appeal and flair that offers its guests a taste of more distant and exotic lands as well as the regular Italian charm. This is due to the taste and wishes of the owners, enthusiastic travelers, who have brought back from their visits to the corners of the world, many mementos, souvenirs and decor that are perfectly at home within the style of their hospitable residence. The lovely bright rooms are decorated with furnishings each which bear the spirit of those far off lands: Rajasthan, Mexico, the South Seas, Jordan, Arizona - each capable of evoking daydreams and arousing curiosity for what awaits us over this horizon! Everywhere the furniture, pictures, fabrics and precious ethnic accessories reflect the history and stories of the owners as it interweaves with the peaceful country life of the cultivated fields, orchards, farmyard animals and fireside chats.

Grazing horses await new friends who bring adventure along to the well kept tracks which lead to the mountains at Schio or Recoaro, the Thiene countryside, the castles of Montecchio or Lake Fimon, the banks of streams and the ridge of an endless range of hills! Secluded yet accessible routes that take us from the everyday streets to the pathways of dreams.

This is a perfect getaway to combine a visit to nearby Venice, which is just a short train ride away.

For those wishing to extend their stay, breathtaking Adriatic Sea beach rides are available from mid September on. River or mountain ride extensions are also available upon request.
