We had 3 outdoor rides on horseback with ranch ricavo. Everything went very smooth. The planning and the rides. Quick replies on emails. The people working here are also very nice and speak sufficiently English to communicate.

We are from the Philippines and we have heard from friends about the beauty of Tuscany. When we stayed for 5 days in Ranch Ricavo, we were not only treated with spectacular scenery but we were welcomed by very warm and down to earth people. The place also is very conducive to families with children who want to get in... More

We went for a day trip to have lunch and ride through the country. The grilled meats were amazing and the horseback riding was picturesque. The staff and the owner were extremely helpful and attentive. We had a great day there :). Please take note. Cash is there preferred method of payment

If you want to taste the real Tuscan Hospitality this is the place to visit. Food great, Staff fantastic, countryside unbelievably beautiful. The horses well trained and the excursions were endless. Even if you don't go horse riding you should still visit the ranch for the food alone !!! Will return without a doubt. Fabri and Angie
