Say the word “Tuscany” and immediately you think of a beautiful landscape and all the activities you might do there, such as trekking, cycling, mountain-biking and horse-riding. Our hotel is surrounded by wonderful countryside, ideal for anyone who likes practising these sports and enjoying a relaxing holiday.

Outdoor enthusiasts often stay here at the Girifalco, because the hotel is in an excellent location, within easy reach of many trails for walkers, mountain-bikers or horse-riders. These excursions will take you through holm-oak forests, woodlands and open fields, and to the sites of Etruscan or mediaeval remains. 

If you enjoy horse-riding, the Maremma is the ideal destination for you. In this land, the bond between men and horses has existed over many centuries, with numerous tales of passion and sacrifice. The famous “butteri” of the Maremma were the last of the European cowboys, always armed with their faithful crooks, from which they would never be parted.

This is why one of the most delightful experiences you can have in this area is go out horse-riding, either for just a few hours or for a whole day. There are many riding centres in the area which organize excursions for every level of ability.

The experience of horse-riding in Tuscany means coming into contact with these wonderful animals in a setting of great natural beauty.

Come and spend your sporting holiday at the hotel Girifalco. You will find lots of information about practicing your favourite activity, or for indulging that delightful feeling of lassitude.
