The central Italian region of Tuscany has always been home to royalty. This is the land of the Medici’s, home of the renaissance movement, territory of kings, queens and impressive castles that pop up on every notable hilltop. Here no matter the season, colour is everywhere. Cobalt blue skies contrast expressively against solitary Cyprus tree’s that lead up to earthy coloured farmhouses with dark green shutters.
Eye catching swathes of colourful flowers catch the eye around every turn of windy narrow roads.
Here you can take a unique journey through the heart of the Tuscany discovering and understanding the areas rich history and natural beauty on foot, mountain bike or horseback.
Twelve Tuscan style farmhouses on the property have been divided into specially designed holiday appartments by a selection of architects to provide each of our clients with the best possible match for their relaxing Tuscan Holiday.

Castellare Di Tonda Tuscany (View My Profile)
Castellare di Tonda is a privately owned guest ranch nestled between Florence, Pisa and Siena in Tuscany, Italy. If you love the idea of horseback riding through magnificent Tuscan scenery; our knowlegable staff, expertly trained horses, and magnificent terrain make for an incredible horseback riding experience.
Renowned for its spectacular scenery, fine food, wine, and enviable culture, Castellare di Tonda has something for everyone. 12 tastefully decorated farmhouses located throughout 280 hectares of vineyards, forest and olive groves offer clients incredible 360 degree views of the Pisan/Florentine hills.
Non riders can enjoy cooking classes, wine tasting, mountain bikes, pottery classes and tennis - or perhaps just enjoy lounging by the pool under the legendary Tuscan sun.
For horse riders the Chianti wine region offers varied and challenging trails for all levels of rider. The soft Tufo sand trails allow the opportunity to enjoy long canters even during the dry summer months when the ground elsewhere is hard. At Castellare di Tonda, there are 52 different horses with some gentle enough for beginners and others more spirited horses suited to experienced riders. The speed is mixed, and experienced riders can be guaranteed some lovely canters on each ride, as well as interesting mixed terrain.
The estate has its own wellness center and spa to relax in after long days in the saddle. Two expert massage therapists are available to offer a selection of relaxing treatments to resident clients.
