    We used Il Corniolo as a base for our horse riding holiday and it worked out perfectly. The three bedroom house we rented was sparkly clean and all the facilities were ample for our needs. Franca is wonderful. In addition to helping us during our stay, she answered all our questions prior to the trip through emails and coordinated the riding for us with Silvano. The hoses were beautiful, healthy and a pleasure to ride. Silvano took us on interesting and varied rides through rivers, forest trails, small towns and scenic vistas of the beautiful Tuscan countryside. We also enjoyed walking around Il Corniolo. There is a fortified town 2 Km up the road that was a wonderful walk. Do use the restaurant recommendation list. Il Pozzo was the best food we had our entire two weeks in Italy, notably the truffle soufflé. Our only regret was leaving.
