We stayed at Cornacchino in July and recommend it highly to others. Everything exceeded our expectations. From the well-kept horses to the incredibly beautiful location & surroundings, to the friendly staff who made us feel so welcome and like family. Oh, and then there's the food! Delicious, and plenty! :-) The rooms are clean, with an enchanting rustic touch. When we weren't riding, we could relax on comfy sunbeds in the big, beautiful garden, or explore the historic and picturesque villages in the area (we did not have a car, but other guests took us with them, which was fun) - the hotsprings are definitely worth visiting. The riding experience was amazing, too. We're both inexperienced riders and the trainers/guides were supportive, knowledgable and made us feel completely at ease. It was hard to leave this warm and welcoming place (and the horses!), and we're sure to come back.
