“A beautiful oasis in the middle of Toscane”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

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 big green garden with a lot of sunbeds and a big "pergola" for hanging out. We both were beginners in riding but had very good and informative lessons and the second day already we had a nice ride in the beautiful landscape. All in all we had an absolutly great time and are coming back for sure! :-))

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. The staff is incredibly friendly (from reception to housemaidens via cooking staff) and multilingual (I heard german, french and english and even some spanish). Horses are professional as well as the guides and right from here you can ride through amazing forests, green hills and old villages all over Tuscany, Lazio and Umbria. The food is amazing: every meal is a feast showered by Montepulciano Wine, with appetizers, two pasta dishes, one second course, two side dishes and often even a cake. We ate together with other guests on long tables and we had fun. Special mention must be given to the horseback riding lessons for children. Doris, the teacher, is really good and my 5 years old daughter enjoyed every minute of the three two hour lessons she took. This is the place to be if you like Italy, horses and outdoors.

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 English person there if you go alone.

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 care. Which I refrained from...
There is accommodation in the main farm house, as well as in a little cottage in the grounds. The accommodations is basic and simple, but clean and comfortable.

There is a small bar in the main building, plus a couple of sitting rooms with real fires. Very cosy..

Staff: friendly and welcoming, especially the ladies who do the cooking. The male Italian riding instructors are......well, they are Italian men !

Food: Three sumptuous meals a day, lunch and dinner are 5 to 6 courses at least, all prepared by local women and sourced from the farm. There is always plenty of red wine on the table! The food alone is worth visiting this place, everytime meal time was an occasion, especially the feast that was served up on Easter Sunday.

Entertainment: riding morning and afternoon sessions. Dinner. Socializing in the bar. There is no television. Internet is available, but no wifi signal in the outbuildings.

If you considering a visit, you should take plenty of warm clothing. This place is high up in the mountains and it can get quite chilly. Also, this place is hugely popular with Germans and Austrians. They turn up in their cars with kids, dogs and the kitchen sink. Don't worry, they are all educated enough to speak English !

Would I go back ? Yes, absolutely. I still miss the wonderful food and the glorious country side...
