Local Hikes and Yoga (no cost)
In addition to the organized programs offered above, what better way to enjoy the rolling hills of the Tuscan countryside than by biking or hiking through it. We have created our very own hiking/biking trail on the premises. The length of under 2.5km (about 1.5 miles) makes it a pleasant walking experience for all including children – or a lap that people looking to exercise can do several times.
The views are breathtaking and the experience memorable. The path takes you through our olive grove where (just to name a few) the towns of Montefollonico, Montepulciano, Monticchiello, Radicofani, Pienza, and Montalcino are visible, past our beehives, wine cellar, vineyards, into the woods, near Etruscan sites, and by a canyon littered with fossilized seashells that date back to when this part of Tuscany was still underwater. We have also signposted the trail that leads to Montichiello for those looking for a longer hike and are happy to advise of many other beautiful routes in the area.
We can assist you in arranging to have mountain or road bikes brought to the Inn for use during your stay (for a rental fee) and we’ll happily help you plan day tours of the area. For those seeking a more low key activity, yoga mats are available for guests to use in one of the peaceful and picturesque spots located throughout the grounds of our property.
