Hacking, SPA or Cooking lesson, wine tasting

A wonderful  week of riding on our beautiful horses exploring this wonderful region, where our castle will be your home. This immersion in the italian culture will be complete with wine tasting at a famous italian vineyard and half a day of relaxation at Sorano's thermal pool. As an alternative, there is a lesson in cooking italian cuisine that will allow you to reproduce our delicious food when at home.

Every day your horse will be your best friend taking you to explore the area up and down hills, woods and valleys framed by ancient castles, volcanoes and lakes.
