Nature & Sport Vacation

A sporty holiday surrounded by nature, starting at Ripostena

Its natural surroundings make Ripostena Country House the ideal base for a vacation enjoying the natural beauty of Tuscany. Whether you want to practice sports on your vacation in Tuscany or just relax, the area’s uncontaminated natural beauty will be the ideal setting for your holiday. At Ripostena Country House you’ll be able to stroll among the terraced gardens, take a walk among the olive groves, pick fruit right off our trees, and discover the woods that surround us. There are plenty of opportunities for anyone wanting to practice sports in contact with nature. You can explore the area in the saddle of your bicycle, on the area’s many little roads and cycling paths. If you prefer, an expert cycling guide can take you on a trip in discovery of the Via Francigena ancient pilgrimage route, the Chianti area, or the most fascinating Tuscan villages, organising the perfect excursion for you on the basis of your preferences.

To explore the area from another point of view, and at a different pace, a horseback ride will allow you to venture into a completely natural setting: a nearby equestrian centre can organise rides of various different durations and levels of difficulty, on the basis of your needs and level of experience.

Bicycles may be rented from a nearby bicycle rental service, which can also pick up and deliver. And if you prefer to travel at an even slower pace, there are plenty of paths to explore on foot, of various lengths and types, appropriate for all. Culture and nature blend together as you walk, discovering remote villages, country churches, castles and enchanting hidden corners. If you prefer, we can organise a hike accompanied by a guide, customised according to your preferences.
