Horseback Retreat is built on a historic hunting estate and still remains a vibrant natural retreat with a spectacular view of the Florentine hills. Built on one of the most scenic points on the hills, Horseback Retreat has been recently renovated but traces of the rustic farmhouses still remain. The agriturismo is quite a unique property because it has been equipped with a horse stable allowing for potential horseback rides through the green countryside. The property also comes with its own sport fishing lake. Surrounded by a hilly landscape, the vines, olive groves, and sunflower fields make it a true delight to walk through or to go on a horseback riding excursion. Horseback Retreat is built in a strategic location, which makes it easy to get to any of the historic medieval towns of Tuscany, such as San Gimignano, Volterra, Certaldo, and Monteriggioni. Horseback Retreat is also only a small trip away from many of the famous Tuscan art cities, including Florence, Pisa, Lucca, and Siena. It offers the peace and comfort of living in the countryside, but without the worry of losing any modern comforts or services.
The 1000m2 property consists of 2 farmhouses split into 7 separate apartments. There is an additional apartment and kitchen attached to the reception area, perfect for social gatherings and events. The apartments range in size from 45 m2 to 80 m2 and the ground floor apartments all come with independent access to the gardens. They all come equipped with a living room, kitchen, 1 to 2 bedrooms, and a bathroom. Because the apartments are made from 2 rustic farmhouses, the apartments all come with the typical Tuscan finishes, including terracotta floors, wooden-beamed ceilings, and beautiful, colorful plastered facades.
Between the farmhouses, there is a lovely garden with a lawn and flowers. The garden comes equipped with a barbecue, wood-fired pizza oven, and has various areas perfect for eating and enjoying the outdoors. Additionally, there is a panoramic swimming pool (12 x 6m) allowing for breathtaking views of the Tuscan countryside.
The accommodations of the property are further furnished by a loggia, a spacious tasting and exhibition area, a living room, bathroom, and a carport. The property is completed by 10 ha of land, including 1 ha of olive groves and 3.5 ha of vineyards. The horse stable comes with everything needed to properly raise, ride and train horses, including 14 horse pens, a hay barn, open lawns, a training carousel, and multiple sand pits.
Horseback Retreat is a unique property with a prime location on a hill overlooking the lush and verdant Tuscan countryside. The property is well-established and is perfect for hosting guests with the added opportunity of riding horses in the vibrant wilderness that surrounds the property.
