What better way to experience the beauty of Tuscany than from the seat of a bike? A mixture of on- and off-road biking awaits on a ride through some of the most gorgeous, yet challenging countryside youll find anywhere. Explore beautiful hill towns, stunning lakes, and have the option to soak in thermal hot springs. After a hard day's ride, what could be better than enjoying the delicious meals your host Stefano will prepare each evening from his locally-grown produce. When you are not riding, take the chance to wander the property's vineyard, relax by the pool, or visit the livestock. There's no better way to work up an appetite.
