Location

The equestrian center is located in one of the most beautiful parts of Tuscany, on the hills of the Chianti Senese, surrounded by vineyards of the famous Chianti Classico and by secular olive trees. In this ancient hamlet, which seems to date back to the 12th century, the Equestrian Tourism Centre Borgo Cignano offers its guests horseback trail rides and trekking in a place that preserves its charm and characteristics of a typical rural landscape.

It is close to famous tourist destinations as Siena, Castelnuovo Berardenga, Gaiole in Chianti, Radda in Chianti and Castellina in Chianti, and to three UNESCO world heritage sites: Siena, Val d’Orcia, and San Gimignano. In the past years, the renovation of this historical place has been completed, focusing on special types of building materials, respecting the typical style of this area.
