2016 season comes to an end.

Some great pics of one of our October weeks riding last month.

This year we have had some truly international clients. American, Brazillian, English, Norwegian, Finnish and German just to mention a few.

The horses are now on their 5 month winter rest in preperation for next season.

 

 

 

Maremmani Horses

Last year we made a photo excursion down to the south of Tuscany, to photograph some very special horses. The Maremmani. The group of riders we photographed were passionate Tuscan riders, who kept alive the Butteri style of riding, and the love of the hardy and strong minded Tuscan cowhorse, the Maremmano (and one adorable rare Tolfetano mare).

Below are some of the photos. It was an amazing day, with really wonderful people, and the horses were something out of this world.

If you ever have the chance to ride one of these horses (there are many trekking centers in the south of Tuscany) and try the fantastic traditional tack, you should jump at the chance.

Special Rates for Holidays at Castellare di Tonda for 2015

The reason why Tuscany is so eternally popular  is simply because it has the best of everything – fantastic weather, spectacular natural beauty, top wines, world famous cuisine, and in every direction, pretty medieval hill towns surrounded by ancient stone walls. 

This summer we have another reason to visit Tuscany. 20% off your holiday’s price.

If you book your Castellare di Tonda apartment before the 1st of March, you will recieve a 20% discount on the stay. This discount applies to holidays taken between our opening date of 28 March right through to the end of season closure on the 4th November.

Yes that includes high season too! This is the first time we have offered an early booking discount to our busy summer period, so dont miss the boat. Book early and save £ € $!!!

Nothing helps to cure the winter blues more than the excitement of an upcoming holiday, and we require only a 30% deposit on the apartment to guarantee the booking.

So start imagining your Tuscan holiday. Here are a few images to inspire you. If you have a non horsey friend or family member, remember we are located right in the middle of all the top Tuscan art cities. Florence, Pisa, Siena, Volterra and San Gimignano are within an hours drive. San Miniato with its medieval tower is only 20 mins drive, and Montaione; our own medieval walled town, should not be missed. Especially for a sunset aperitivo in the piazza!!
