Accommodations for Gourmet Ride in Tuscany



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

Description
The "Casale", the main welcome area and elegant lodging for guests, is the completely and traditionally restored beautiful original stone farmhouse. It has obviously retained its initial appeal and stands in a splendid position overlooking the magnificent unspoilt landscape of the characteristic clay hills of the Val d’Orcia, the imposing Radicofani fortress, Mt. Amiata, the austere medieval tower of Celle sul Rigo and renowned San Casciano Bagni. Five suites, charmingly furnished and fully equipped with many modern conveniences and comforts, have been suitably built on the first floor of the house.
There are also two swimming pools on the back lawn of the "Casale", one of which has a special wading and safe playing area for the joy of children.

Room Options

Farmhouse Suites (Al’Isà, Tara, Camilla, Farida and Ben Tar)
The 5 suites are all located on the first floor of the farmhouse. They offer a splendid view of the hills and an unforgettable relaxing atmosphere. The furnishings are elegant and comfortable. Stylishly furnished according to the local traditions, the suites are cozy and intimate. With warm pastel colored walls, these suites include a large master bedroom with king size bed, a cozy reading corner and large bathroom with shower and relaxing whirlpool bath.



Apartments at the Borgo
The "Borgo" is made up of charming converted stables, fashioned in genuine imitation of a small, typical and enchanting rural village, with its main square, inner courtyard and homely, secluded Mediterranean gardens for each unit where guests can unwind and enjoy quiet private rests. It has been built up it the central area of the old farm buildings, with delightful, completely separate, top quality self-catering apartments, all in the likeness of a traditional hamlet.
The apartments are all equipped with all modern facilities and recreate a cozy rural settlement in a proper Senese style. The two-bedroom apartments, on the first or ground floor are composed of a master bedroom, a living room with kitchen nook and fireplace and a bathroom with shower. The ones on the ground floor own a private terrace, an ideal solution for families with children or for those people who want to grant more freedom to their pets. The three-bedroom apartments, consisting of two floors, have two bedrooms, a living room with kitchen nook and fireplace, two bathrooms and private garden or balcony. Each apartment has its own fireplace!
The various furnishings have all been made by local craftsmen in keeping with Tuscan and Sienese styles.

Room Occupancy
If we are unable to find another rider to share the room with you, a single supplement fee applied.
Single room accommodations are subject to availability.



Meals
Breakfasts and dinners are always included but only 4 lunches are included.

The restaurant on the ground floor of the "Casale" is where typical specialties of the Tuscan cuisine can be savored. Every dish is prepared, not only with a creative flair for the eye's delight, but with healthy local food and genuine organic products straight off the farm, taking great care to enhance the most intensive flavors of each of the fresh garden crops as well as the farm-produced pork and cheese delicatessen...for the gratification of the palate too!  The atmosphere is naturally rustic and the service is provided in a manner that is both attentive and pleasurably relaxing.
Traditional local dishes from the area, such as “pici” and other home-made pasta specialties are accompanied by the farm wines, or by wines, prevalently Tuscan, especially selected for the guests from the most prestigious Italian wineries (alcoholic drinks not included in the price).

There is a most striking Belvedere leading out from the restaurant – set up with an open-air buffet in the summer months – from which the gorgeous and most awesome view of the countryside, made famous by the renowned Sienese School painters, can be thoroughly enjoyed whilst in the evenings the beautiful sunsets that impart a glowing red silhouette to Mt. Amiata and the tower of Ghino di Tacco’s Castle can be witnessed and stored amongst "those special memories".
