Accommodations
This is a stationary ride where all nights are spent at the same location.

Description
Guests are hosted in an 18th century country villa featuring terra-cotta floors, wooden beamed roofs etc. The house has 9 guest rooms (all with bathrooms) and 1 apartment with kitchenette.
On the ground floor is a rustic living room with country antiques, comfy sofas, and piano enhanced by a vaulted brick ceiling and worn terra-cotta floors, off which are 3 bedrooms.
Upstairs, the main gathering area is the dining room, which features a massive fireplace and a seemingly endless wooden table. This room gives access to more bedrooms, each decorated with touches such as dried flowers, white lace curtains, and, of course, equestrian prints. 
WIFI is available in common areas. 

There is no laundry service at the facility, but there is a laundromat and laundry service in Barberino val d’Elsa, which is the closest town. It is about 30 minutes walk, but we can offer a ride should you like to visit.

Meals
Half board is included in this packages with breakfasts and dinners. Lunches are not included, but can be ordered daily. Often riders will go into the village, town or all the way into Florence or Siena to sightsee for half a day after or before their lessons. 

Forget a diet here! Four courses are served for dinner and a good Chianti wine is always at your disposal (and included in the prices!). The products are genuine and fresh:  using olive oil that is produced at the farm. The cuisine is typical of Tuscany and delicious. The meals are served in the big dining room on a long table in front of the open fire place.

We cater vegetarian food upon request.

This trip includes some wine with dinner and can accommodate special dietary requests.
