About
If you run out of ideas on what to do after you have had enough wine, olive oil, culture and churches, and if your children or partner are starting to nag or get slightly bored , then this is what you want to do - “let some arrows fly” as the archer would say. Play Robin Hood and Lady Marian in the Chianti hillside! A perfect past time that can fill morning or late afternoon hours and is the thing to do for couples, small groups or families (children as of 7 years). Fabian will teach you the technics and tricks and if you are ready and feel like it will accompany you into the range for some “real shooting” . Plan 2 hours for this activity. For archery lessons reservation is absolutely required !!! , Rates: € 25/pp for 1 hrs. group lesson, private lesson as of €40/pp), archery range shooting only for experienced archers from € 10 to 15/ pp), standard equipment rental possible , warm up range. We speak German,English + Italian.

Whilst thoroughly enjoying plenty of wine tasting and sight seeing, the two hour archery session with Fabian at Poderi Cal Verde providing a welcome diversion for my family on our recent Tuscan vacation. A little off the beaten path and hidden away down in the valley the archery facilities form part of a local farm and accommodation.

Fabian proved very patient and a highly capable archer who was quickly able to improve our shooting accuracy allowing us to enjoy a highly competitive family competition to conclude the session.

The equipment and tuition are first class and ensures this activity provides a welcome addition to sight seeing and wine tasting, which also come highly recommended.

Well worth booking.

The main reason for us to book Poderi Val Verde was the archery range and we were absolutely delighted! Fabian did a great job in preparing the parcours which offers long and short distance as well as up- and downhill shots. The targets range from boar to deer to bear and carefully and lovingly placed on the hills surrounding the property. They look as if they just stepped out of their natural environment! Fabian himself is a great guy, very easy and interesting to talk with. He has also taken up flintknapping and sells beautifully handcrafted arrowheads and historical arrows.
All in all a wonderful stay and absolutely recommended for serious archers as well as beginners, as I think Fabian is also a great and patient teacher.

Our holiday at Poderi Val Verde was very much enhanced by Fabian's archery lessons.His relaxed style of teaching has certainly rekindled my interest in the sport.
He caters for all ages and abilities and I would recommend this to anyone staying in the Chianti area.

As guests of Ulrike and Fabian Eder at Poderi Val Verde for three weeks during this years july and august, my son (6 years) and i started to develop a certain kind of addiction to archery thanks to our excellent archery teacher and guide through the great 3D archery course, Fabian.
He is not only a successful archer who has won numerous tournaments, but also a very competent teacher and overall a great guy.
We started with two lessons at the training range in which Fabian taught us beginners the security rules and the technical basics (the stand, drawing, aiming, shooting). These lessons were already great fun, and due to Fabians teaching skills it was a steep learning curve until we were ready to hit the course.
This sophisticated, very varied course is bedded into the beautiful chianti hills and will enthuse beginners and pros alike.
The targets are 3D models of animals made from foamed plastic, they range from squirrels up to a big deer, all placed thoughtfully into their natural habitat, some slightly hidden between trees and branches.
The shooting positions are carefully chosen, too. At most targets, there are two different marks for the shooting positions of children/beginners and skilled archers. There are all variations of shoots: short and long distance, a diversity of natural obstacles in the way, up- and downhill, against the sun. The view from the shooting positions in the direction of the targets often already looks like some painting, it is really beautiful.
Fabian was always there with good advice to help us to improve, we had a great time together.
My son and I could not get enough of this joint wonderful mix of sporty action and fun in such beautiful nature.
And sometimes in the evening, after having finished the course, we saw the living relatives of the animals we had aimed at strolling through the hills - including wild boar and deer. It just added a touch of magic to the already wonderful experience.
We will be back at Poderi Val Verde for next year’s summer holidays, and guess what my son and i can hardly wait for?!

One of the best highlights of my Europe trip this summer was participating in Fabian Eder's 3D Archery Course. I had shot Bows as a kid at bales of hay, but this took the experience to a whole new level! I compare it to playing on a Golf or Frisbee Golf Course. You approach a colored stake much like a Tee Box to line up your shot at rubber animal targets strategically placed throughout the forrest. The challenge is, their location requires you to take aim and shoot through forks of trees, under over brush or at times even from one knee. Fabian was very knowledgeable in safety and technique in using a bow and would give you pointers to improve your style and skill on the course. If you are in the Castellina area, I would recommend this as a Must Stop on your Adventure.

Owner Fabian provided us with lessons in a fun and nonjudgemental (thank goodness ) manner. The course was amazing with a wide variety of interesting and realistic targets. Placements and distances were varied allowing both beginners and advanced archers to challenge themselves at their level. Would be great for competitive archers. A really fun and inexpensive activity!

We were staying at Poderi val Verde and decided to have a go. The age group ranged from 58 to 20, so it is an activity for all ages.
Fabian is an excellent teacher and made the experience really enjoyable.
The equipment is first class and while we were not too accurate early on, with Fabian's expert advice we were pretty good by the end. There are a great variety of targets and the time flies by.
I would thoroughly recommend this.

Fabian has set up an excellent archery course complete with animal targets of all different sizes and ranges in the trails of their beautiful land.

I thoroughly enjoyed the lessons given beforehand and the competition in the course itself. We actually did it twice!

Fabian put a lot of thought into this course, strategically placing the targets in areas of the woods and trails that those particular animals would be in normally.

My husband and I took a one-hour archery lesson from Fabian the day before the competition. I hadn't shot a bow since I was a child. We started by shooting a flat target and then "graduated" to the 3-D animals. Fabian was a patient and effective instructor!

The next afternoon, we joined six other guests for the archery competition along a trail on the farm. The targets (bear, deer, rabbit, etc.) were set up to challenge the novice (me) and the more experienced archer. I was so surprised by how well organized this activity was. Each person was given two arrows with their initials on them, which made it easy to sort out. Score was recorded at each station, but we didn't know the final results until we met up 30 minutes later for the "final reveal." Prizes and crowns were awarded for the highest scores. What a blast! Just one more fantastic memory made during our week-long stay at Poderi Val Verde.

Such a fun and constructive use of time! Being total archery-beginners, Fabian gave us a relaxed and yet insightful introduction to archery. We made significant progress and were totally absorved for 1h! We will definitely go back :)
