Tuscany in the saddle. There is no better way to experience this beautiful part of the world. Totally attentive staff, be it in the stables, the restaurant or the spa.

This is a very lovely holiday. It's a really good idea to have a hire car (which we did) as the vineyard is very isolated and you'll miss out on some wonderful places that are an easy drive away.

The terrain is very rugged so whilst the pace isn't very fast, you do still have to be fit to handle so many hills!

Our guide Jess was great, we chatted and laughed our way around the beautiful estate. We were super lucky with the weather as the forecast was ever changing and we witnessed some spectacular storms but thankfully never got caught in any of them!
