Florence Tuscan Countryside

Brief Description

Horseback Retreat is built on a historic hunting estate and still remains a vibrant natural retreat with a spectacular view of the Florentine hills. Built on a strategic location, close to historic medieval towns of Tuscany, such as San Gimignano, Volterra, Certaldo, and Monteriggioni and the famous Tuscan art cities, including Florence, Pisa, Lucca, and Siena. It offers the peace and comfort of living in the countryside, but without the worry of losing any modern comforts or services.

The 1000m2 property consists of 2 farmhouses split into 7 separate apartments and additional reception spaces with typical Tuscan finishes, including terracotta floors, wooden-beamed ceilings, and beautiful, colorful plastered facades. The property is completed by 10 ha of land ( including 1 ha of olive groves and 3.5 ha of vineyards), panoramic swimming pool, outdoor dining areas and the horse stable with 14 horse pens.

Horseback Retreat is a unique property with a prime location on a hill overlooking the lush and verdant Tuscan countryside. The property is well-established and is perfect for hosting guests with the added opportunity of riding horses in the vibrant wilderness that surrounds the property.

Description in Detail

Horseback Retreat is built on a historic hunting estate and still remains a vibrant natural retreat with a spectacular view of the Florentine hills. Built on one of the most scenic points on the hills, Horseback Retreat has been recently renovated but traces of the rustic farmhouses still remain. The agriturismo is quite a unique property because it has been equipped with a horse stable allowing for potential horseback rides through the green countryside. The property also comes with its own sport fishing lake. Surrounded by a hilly landscape, the vines, olive groves, and sunflower fields make it a true delight to walk through or to go on a horseback riding excursion. Horseback Retreat is built in a strategic location, which makes it easy to get to any of the historic medieval towns of Tuscany, such as San Gimignano, Volterra, Certaldo, and Monteriggioni. Horseback Retreat is also only a small trip away from many of the famous Tuscan art cities, including Florence, Pisa, Lucca, and Siena.
