Agriturismo Rendola Riding

VIA DELLA FONTE 45, LOCALITÀ RENDOLA, MONTEVARCHI, AREZZO, TUSCANY, 52025 , Italy

Love at First Sight

Perched on the slopes of the Chianti hills overlooking the Arno valley, the family-run Rendola Riding is a farm holiday and riding centre with a picturesque seventeenth-century farmhouse that offers guests rustic but comfortable and charming en-suite bedrooms. This magical farmhouse’s biggest attraction is its horseback riding tours, during which guests can ride through medieval villages, vineyards, olive groves and extensive woodland to enjoy breathtaking views at every turn.

Romance

Couples looking to head for the hills and escape the many distractions of modern life will fall in love with Rendola Riding. Here lovers can get away from it all and once again learn to appreciate time together with relaxed, secluded walks that take in the many marvellous views. Guests looking to get their hearts racing are sure to enjoy a romantic horseback ride though the region’s unspoilt countryside for a truly unforgettable experience.

Your Stay

Offering quaint and rustic rooms in the picturesque seventeen-century farmhouse and with views over the surrounding olive groves where horses peacefully graze, Rendola Riding makes the ideal holiday for those after a relaxed countryside getaway. Evenings at the farmhouse are commonly spent relaxing in the sitting room, sitting out in the garden with a glass of Chianti wine or curled up with a good book in front of the log fire.

What to Do

What truly draws guests to Rendola Riding is its horseback tours, and a visit wouldn’t be complete without saddling up and following a guide through the fantastic Tuscan countryside. Experienced riders have a choice of four different programmes which take place in spring and autumn on fixed dates. Couples are also highly recommended to try the 'Taste of Tuscany' and 'Chianti Castles Week' programmes - please ask us for details. Visits to the farmhouse, however, aren’t all about riding, as the area is filled with waymarked trails for walkers as well as mountain bike routes for the more adventurous. Couples craving culture and the bright lights of the city will also be pleasantly surprised to find Florence, Arezzo and Siena all less than an hour away.

The Food of Love

Guests looking to indulge in some fine Tuscan cuisine certainly won’t be disappointed by the array of meals served up at Rendola Riding. The farm provides genuine olive oil coming from the farm's own trees, as well as daily eggs and fresh vegetables, and so you can be certain that each and every dish is of the best quality. Those who fancy discovering the secrets of fine Tuscan cooking for themselves are sure to enjoy the farmhouse’s cooking classes. Each lesson is specially tailored by knowledgeable chef Franca, and takes full advantage of the current season’s ingredients, from the spring salads, the sun-ripened tomatoes of summer to the chestnuts and mushrooms of autumn.
