Active Adventures


While it is best known its food and wine, the beautiful Chianti region that surrounds Villa Ardore offers a variety of opportunities for those who like to incorporate exercise into their vacation.

We can arrange bike rentals for you and your family or friends so you can take advantage of the many biking opportunities through the Chianti vineyards and forests, from challenging hours-long rides along paved roads shared with cars, to a bucolic 5K ride along a bike path that follows a former train route between the cities of Poggibonsi and Colle Val d’Elsa, to a mountain bike trek along unpaved forest roads.

The famous Tuscan unpaved “white roads,” like the one leading to Villa Ardore, also offer opportunities for hikes through forest and vineyard for persons seeking any activity level, from challenging to relaxing. If you and your family or friends would like to incorporate history and culture into your exercise, let our experience curator arrange a guided tour along the Tuscan portion of the Via Francigena, the route generations of pilgrims have taken from Canterbury, England to Rome to see the Holy Land.

Our experience curator can also arrange horseback riding excursions for your entire group, just a portion of your group, or even for a couple wishing to combine a horseback ride with a romantic lunch in a clearing in the woods.

To inquire about this vacation, or for additional questions, please contact our US based Travel Curator.
