  • Descripción


    Hi! We are Sheena (64) and Justine (33), and we have a beautiful family-run 8-hectare riding school, situated in the eastern part of Tuscany, between Arezzo and Siena.

    We have about 40 horses and ponies, about 7 adorable Labradors, and 2 stable cats!

    In the summer we have many children coming for the weekly camps, horse riding and doing all sorts of activities. During the rest of the year we have riding lessons and rides out in the beautiful hills around us. We also have a kitchen garden.

    We sometimes go on longer horse rides up to a few days long, or we go to competitions with our ponies and children.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    -You will be able to go on rides on our beautiful horses and ponies (we have Connemara ponies which are also suitable for small-medium sized adults), or we can provide lessons if you are willing to learn (we ask you to help with some extra hours in exchange).
    -The dogs are always a major source or relaxation through just need to stroke and cuddle them and they love it!
    - You will be able to learn Italian or English. We are a bilingual family.

    In your free time you can ride or take lessons in exchange for some extra hours!
    We don't expect any experience with horses, but we guess that if you chose us it is because you love animals. Our dogs stay in the house, so sometimes it gets a bit crowded... :)
    There are horses all around the house, so you will hear them at night and see them from your bedroom window...

    Any experience in general woodwork, or painting, or permaculture, or cooking, or IT computer ...will be definitely a bonus. We would really appreciate also some help in renovating our website, or in keeping the accountancy up to date.

    - In the SUMMER... we need help mainly with the summer camps: helping the children to get their ponies ready, clean the house, the garden and swimming pool, look after the dogs, cook lunch (on average we are about 20 people eating from Monday to Friday), organise afternoon activities with the children, and if there is more time, some general maintenance work in the stables or in the horses paddocks and gardening.

  • Alojamiento


    We have two shared bedrooms available, they are both very light and spacious and have shared bathroom with us (in the house there are 2 bathrooms, one upstairs one downstairs).
    We also have a sweet little wooden bungalow in the garden (the bathroom is in the house). There is also plenty of space if you want to come with a tent.
    We usually eat all together, and we try to take it in turns cooking. If we have lessons until late we really appreciate if you can start the cooking. We eat meat, but not that often, so there is usually plenty of vegetables for vegetarians or vegans.

    Algo más...

    You can visit some of the most astonishing beauties of Tuscany starting from Florence (60 min by train), Siena (40 min by car), Arezzo (20 min by car), Assisi (1 hr by car), Cortona, and so many more places that you maybe haven't ever heard of!
    In our little village (1 km away) there is a little train station with trains going to Arezzo 5-6 times a day or more (only 1 on Sundays!), and from Arezzo you can move to all other cities. Nonetheless we go to Arezzo by car at least once a week, so you can always get a lift with us.
    We are surrounded by nature so you can hike as much as you want.
    There are thermal baths not too far away (30 min by car), we can try to arrange going together.
