Experience the variety of the Italian landscape and culture on horseback. The equestrian centre is set in the spectacular Chianti region, with its breaktaking landscapes forming an ideal backdrop for trail riding, dressage and horse riding lessons. Il Parentaio offer a high standard of riding tuition, especially Classical Dressage, and hacking in the idyllic surrounding countryside.
Located in the centre of Tuscany, just half an hour by car from Florence and Siena, Il Parentaio is a good base for touring the area without changing accommodation. The Chianti region has stunning landscapes, Tuscan hills, medieval castles and churches. These are just some of the sights you can see from the windows of your guest room and while exploring on horseback.
The hospitality of the farmers where rides stop for wine tasting or lunch is very unique. Italy is a wonderfully relaxing riding destination. Trail rides wind through terraced vineyards, olive groves, rolling green hills and cypress avenues.
Ride for a few hours per day, then relax by the pool, admiring the panoramic views of the surrounding hills and fields.
