    about provider
    Absolutely fantastic! Went on a trip with two girl friends who share my passion for horse riding, and my husband, who is an avid mountain biker. We all had an amazing time exploring the area on our preferred modes of transport. My husband enjoyed biking so much that he declared he'd return even if he had to accompany three women again! The horses were exceptional—well-trained and well-behaved, yet spirited enough to gallop when desired. My energetic mount, Da Vinci, was absolutely perfect for me. Our guides, Kate and Suska, were incredibly helpful, friendly, and assisted in selecting the perfect horse for each of us. A big thank you to these wonderful ladies! Our hosts, Antonello and Cristina, were simply delightful. They couldn't do enough for us, whether it was arranging for a professional cycling guide or ensuring we had wine so we didn't have to venture into town. They fulfilled every request with a smile. Visiting their home was a true highlight of the trip. The food was outstanding Italian cuisine—simple yet bursting with flavor thanks to fresh, high-quality ingredients. We all leave several pounds heavier, but it was worth every bite. The rooms were comfortable, equipped with all modern amenities, excellent wifi, and impeccably clean. We'll definitely be returning, and it won't be long before we do. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Melinda, Richard, Tina, and Gill
