Ride Overview - Italian Castle Ride and Golf
In the wonderful heart of Italy, you can ride while your partner plays golf! Located in Southern Tuscany, one and a half hours from Rome, half way between Orvieto and Siena, closely bordering with the forests of Umbria and the countryside of Tuscany, you will stay at the foot of a splendid 17th-century castle. Your riding trails will lead you to a Proceno castle, Lake Bolsena and the beautiful natural reserve of Selva Del Lamone. Golfing will be enjoyed at the new par 3, nine-hole Club Acquapendente located 6 miles from the castle. At the end of your active day, an ayurvedic masseuse will be ready to relax you with an appropriate massage at the wellness center. You can also enjoy cooking lessons and traditional family recipe dining. RIDING IN ITALY
