The splendid La Forra farmhouse is nestled on a hill in the Chianti region, where the provinces of Arezzo, Florence and Siena meet. The farmstead has been tastefully renovated to provide guests with all comforts. It is equipped with three swimming pools, a yoga and massage room. It is the ideal location which combines horseback riding, leisure and relax, for a weekend escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The program is spread over two days and one or two nights, with two horseback rides together with a professional guide. It is suitable for riders of all levels: paths and gaits will be adapted to the ability of participants, from beginners to experts.

The farmhouse is home to Dimensione Maremma Association, which has been committed to handing down and preserving the tradition of Maremma cowboys for thirty years. The association provides its guests with professionally trained horses; their different features allow the riders to find the horse best suited to one’s needs.

La Forra also houses a very good restaurant, making the most of the farm-to-table products (such as the exceptional organic olive oil) coming from the surrounding area and combining the rich Tuscan tradition with a modern and innovative cuisine open to innovation. Thus, a fragrant panzanella (Tuscan chopped salad of soaked stale bread, onions and tomatoes) that seems to be made by grandma can be followed by a duck breast cooked at low temperature with handmade chips.

The beauty of Chianti

The cultural highlights of Chianti, with its postcard landscapes, vineyards and top-notch wine cellars, its richness of history and monuments, will make your stay a dream come true!

Characterized by the beauty and sweetness of its hilly landscape - shaped over the centuries by the man, with its extensive vineyards and its cottages perched on the hills and shaded by rows of cypress trees - Chianti has been for decades a coveted destination for foreigners from all over the world, willing to invest millions of dollars to buy marvelous houses. Rightly so, because here it is impossible to get bored: you can walk for miles in the silence of the woods, as well as visit historical wineries scattered in the area. The architectural and monumental wonders of Florence, Arezzo, Siena (to name the main ones) are just a step away; as well as the sea is not far-flung. While cheese, wines, cold cuts and specialties of a varied and wonderful cuisine are served in any trattoria or, for the most demanding ones, in the many starred restaurants in the area.
