Fall is a particularly sumptuous season in Tuscany, and specially at Il Paretaio :
Warm weather, incredible light, and these views all around the house!
The riding is fantastic, thanks to Cristina and Gianni professionalism and passion.
The hospitality is excellent, and the Tuscan traditional food is absolutely perfect.
Il Paretaio is conveniently located at 30’drive from many major cultural and touristic attractions such as Sienna, Firenze, San Giminiano.
I can’t recommend enough this magical place, one of the best places in the world to disconnect from everyday life and reconnect to oneself.

Just back from 1 week vacation in Paretaio. This is a fantastic place, for both horseback riders and people looking for an authentic Tuscan experience.
Right in the centre of the Chianti hills, Il Paretaio is ideal to explore all the wonders of Tuscany (Florence, Sienna, San Gimignano ...). Rooms are confortable, without fuss. Food was excellent with typical regional dishes.
W.r.t. horse back riding, this is a GREAT place too, with high quality lessons, very attentive staff to both the horses and the riders. I enjoyed it very much to resume my HB riding experience there. We had also very energetic yoga lessons. Thank you Christina, Gianni, Eva, Roberto --- and all the friendly staff who make Il Paretaio such a special place. Will definitely come again

Just back from a week in Il Paretaio.. Was amazing, the training was superb.. Yoga every morning to prepare for riding. Food was excellent. What I absolutely loved was the atmosphere of being welcomed into someone's home.. I an unequivocally recommend to riders of all abilities from those learning to mode advanced. It is also a great spot for exploring Tuscany....

Absolutely lovely place. Very welcoming and homely feeling. Comfortable rooms. Stunning scenery. Caters for all riders; beginners and more advanced. Very flexible management. The food is amazing! (The single downside is that the walls/doors are old and not isolated at all, thus, you hear everything going on in the house and especially in the dining area.) So not always that much sleep during the week but it doesn't matter, it is always a very relaxing stay anyway! We love it and keep coming back. Gianni, Christina and their crew are working very hard to make this a truly remarkarble place in the world.

Very nice atmosphere, interesting and lovely guests (all ages). Good food (a bit late). Very dog friendly place. Nice evenings at the long dinner table. Great quality of the riding lessons and very good matching of the horses (everybody got the perfect horse). Very calm and well trained horses. Charming rooms (little storage room) only the ones heading towards the dining room are a bit noisy at night and in the morning.
We will come again (perhaps not in summer).
