We've never ride before, but we wanted to try. At the Cornacchino they carefully and friendly helped us not only to ride, but also to approach to these unknown (for us...), strange, big, funny, beautiful animals: horses! Weather was not so good, but we really enjoy the experience and our teacher has been very good: after only 2 lessons (we... More

Helpfull staff many of whom spoke great English. Nothing was too much trouble. All the meals were fantastic with very large helpings! The horses were well behaved and the countryside stunning. Was sad to leave for our pre planned weekend in Rome would much rather stayed for more riding and Tuscan hospitality.

We had a great week, good food, lovely horses, excellent accommodation. The downsides are that if the weather is cold and wet, as it was when we visited, the buildings feel gloomy and damp. The other customers were german and french, the germans were friendly but one of the french went out of his way to exclude those in the... More

Like the last reviewer, Jessica, I did the week-long trek and it was great! We stayed in the farmhouse for two nights at first, and spent a day riding in the vicinity to make sure our horses were a good fit. The first day included a delicious picnic with a fabulous lasagna. Then the next day we set out for... More

We stayed at Cornacchino in July and recommend it highly to others. Everything exceeded our expectations. From the well-kept horses to the incredibly beautiful location & surroundings, to the friendly staff who made us feel so welcome and like family. Oh, and then there's the food! Delicious, and plenty! :-) The rooms are clean, with an enchanting rustic touch. When... More

We stayed in Cornacchino for one week and it was just amazing! The stuff is unbelievable friendly and you just feel like in a big family. The food was incredible delicious with four courses at least per meal and red wine included. The rooms are relative small but user-friendly and clean. The different buildings are in the middle of a... More

I spent three nights here in May 2012 with wife and daughter and even if the weather was cold and wet we had a wonderfull time. The rooms are simple but clean. The landscape is majestic.

I travelled solo in April 2012 and this was a wonderful 'get away from it all holiday'. The riding (in Western saddles) is super - it can be very adventurous (if you are confident) or relaxing if you are a beginner. The Germans and the Swiss love this place (and I can see why) but you may be the only... More

I found this place when searching for a horse-riding for beginners in Italy. I don't speak a word of Italian, and my riding skills are not that good, but I thought I'd give this place a go: Accommodation: A rustic farm in the most glorious countryside. Quite isolated, so you either are "away from it all", or you hire a... More
