Gloria R. – Agosto 2020

Very Beautiful. Pure relaxation

We spent a wonderful week…the view is wonderful. The farm is very large and you can take long walks in nature. Wonderful horses and wonderful for my daughter the experience on the pony that she wanted to repeat, Giulia who takes care of the horses very sweet, available and prepared. The girls loved feeding the goats and the pig. There is also a bunny and turtles…Beautiful experience absolutely to be repeated. Highly recommended

Ciro F. – Giugno 2020

The beauty of nature

An agritourism surrounded by greenery where you can practice: volleyball, soccer, tennis, cycling. Another strong point is the handling. One hour walks in nature. For experts up to 3 hours. The guide, Giulia, will show you the beauty of nature in the saddle. The cost is 35 per person (money well spent). You will also find a restaurant and a panoramic swimming pool. The final gem is the piso: Volterra and San Gimignano one step away and Florence just an hour. Magnificent.

Paramjit R. – October 2020

Beautiful Location with Remarkable Hospitality.

My family and I with our two children…enjoyed our 1 ½ weeks at Belmonte Vacanze. We were received with open arms; everyone on the team were so helpful and accommodating…The surrounding area is beautiful! Such serene and peaceful feeling. Our kids booked tennis lessons and horse-riding lesson and enjoyed the booked hours very much. Both instructors were highly trained and were able to work with small children’s and have lots of patience…
