La Villa si trova a soli 8 km dal Florence Golf Club dell'Ugolino, voluto dalla prima associazione golfistica italiana, che nel cuore del Chianti ha disegnato uno dei campi da golf più belli al mondo.
Un percorso che affascina e attira i golfisti più affermati, grazie alla sua conformazione che sfrutta il territorio naturale con collinette, pendenze, piccoli spazi da cui sono stati ricavati i green, circondati da un paesaggio composto da cipressi, pini, olivi.
Il Golf Club riserva prezzi speciali per gli ospiti del Relais.
If you are fond of outdoor sports, you can discover the unspoiled beauty of Chianti riding horses along romantic paths suggested by the many riding stables around, which offers riding lessons also for beginners.
The gentle slopes of the Tuscan hills are well suited for fun horseback riding, among vineyards and ancient churches.
For insurance reasons, you can participate in equestrian horseback riding in the Tuscan countryside only proving your high ability during a practical lesson. Otherwise, you can be guided by experts staff.
Plan to "get lost" on the paths and trails around Florence and the Chianti region and see it on two wheels instead. Scout around for shortcuts that will allow you to "take a break" off the bike path to taste new local flavours and discover little known cultural assets once you're tired out. Mountain Bikes can be rented at the Relais Reception desk.
