  • Description

    Description

    My colleagues and I have a small farm holiday centre in the Chianti hills, Tuscany. We have 18 horses and offer lessons and rides, as well as hospitality in our traditional farmhouse. In Spring and Autumn people come for weeklong programmes of riding and culture. In June and July we organize courses for children aged 10-17 and need help with English language as well as horses. The place has a family atmosphere and guests often make return visits. Food is very good, too! On the farm we have olive trees, vegetables, ducks, hens, two dogs and a cat.
