Whether you come for a week or a year, likely you plan a few excursions that will help make your Tuscan experience an even more eclectic one. Although, we won’t judge you if all you want to do is rest, because after all, this is called vacation for a reason. At our Resort, we also offer a variety of fun family-filled activities that our guests truly enjoy, here are a few of our favorites.
This is most definitely our top choice since we are the only ‘Olive Oil’ resort in all of Italy. Besides harvesting and processing our olive oil on site, we also offer our guests the chance to see the inner-workings of all that goes into creating truly marvelous oil directly with our family. Obviously this can only be done during the late fall (around November). Find out how you can book here (free for guests).
Many people might be surprised that Tuscany has a long history of a horse-loving culture with cowboys (called ‘butteri’) based more in the Maremma area of the region. Nowadays in the countryside, one of the most popular activity requests we get from our guests are where to go horseback riding in the Mugello. Luckily we have already a place in mind and the lovely Carolina can arrange to give you a lesson, take you out for a scenic ride and much more, just contact us here today and arrange your spot.
Our last suggestion is for a special yoga class in our own personal ‘nature gym‘ aka the large outdoor park surrounding our Resort. We offer our guests the chance to book a fitness yoga class including Asana positions or “Earthing” and Meditation in movement using special concentration techniques to help you connect your body with the earthly surroundings. Book a class with us today.
