A hundred vacations in one at Capanna Suites!

Thanks to the incredible variety of activities offered in the beautiful region where Capanna Suites is located, it is possible to choose from an incredible amount of activities to fill your days so you will certainly never be bored while staying at our agriturismo luxury accommodations. For those who love rest and relaxation, nature, art, good food and wine or shopping, a stay at Capanna Suites has something to offer everyone so you can indulge your passions.


HORSEBACK RIDING

Set against the splendid backdrop of the rolling hills surrounding Capanna Suites and Montalcino it is possible to participate in horseback riding activities for beginners all the way to expert level riders. Our carefully selected partners know how to tailor an experience to your level and offer various possibilities from a one-hour horseback ride to an entire day with stops in the most panoramic spots. During the summer, it is even possible to book a nighttime horseback riding experience. For those who want to learn to ride or sharpen their skills it’s possible to have horseback riding lessons of various levels at a riding stable not far from our agriturismo accommodations in Tuscany.

HOT AIR BALLOON RIDES

A fantastic view flying high above the Tuscan countryside.

Every day is unique when flying in a hot air balloon because depending on which way the wind is blowing the hot air balloon can be transported in literally any direction. In the summer, the hot air balloon rides begin at dawn when the air is cool and time seems to stand still. The hot air balloon has a delicate, gentle, slow flight that allows you to experience life high above the undisturbed Tuscan countryside... perhaps spotting a herd of wild boars or a family of deer. You can experience flying over the bell towers of the small hilltop towns and soaring over the dirt roads and rows of bountiful vineyards lining the hills. A hot air balloon ride will make your vacation at Capanna Suites a truly unforgettable experience.

 

BIKE RIDING TOURS 

Bike riding tours are an activity that has really caught on in the last few years. Thanks to the rise in availability and popularity of electric bicycles with pedal assist, even those without a lot of training can visit our region using this alternative, ecological, slow and sporty transportation. At Capanna Suites it is possible to reserve your preferred type of mountain bike and have them delivered directly to our agriturismo. You can then enjoy independent excursions or reserve a biking guide who can take you on the best routes, with stops along the way in interesting places.

 

TRUFFLE HUNTING EXPERIENCE

Truffles are one of the main ingredients used in our local Val d’Orcia cuisine, and the reason is because this area has a large production of this exquisite and highly-coveted ingredient.

Not far from Montalcino, in the countryside near Montisi, it is possible to participate in a real Tuscan truffle hunt, going into the woods looking for this precious tuber alongside a truffle hunter and his friendly truffle hunting dogs. In this area, truffle hunting can be done all year long with black truffles found in the summer months and white truffles, the most famous, found in the autumn and winter.

 

TOURS WITH LUXURY VEHICLE AND GUIDE

For a day of sightseeing that is totally stress-free, we can organize a private day of touring for you with a luxury vehicle and guide. The elegant vehicles are fully equipped and always have cold water and Wi-Fi. You will be taken to the top sightseeing locations of your choice, all while being told interesting information and stories about the area’s history and art.

It is also possible to organize a shopping tour. The headquarters of several top Italian fashion brands, such as Prada and Gucci, are located here in Tuscany.

 

WINE AND FOOD

After having tasted the delicacies at our restaurant, Il Passaggio, and the incredible Capanna wines, we can also give you advice about many other restaurants, wineries and wine shops where you can continue your exploration of the local cuisine and wines. In Montalcino, we highly recommend the restaurants Il Grifo, Re di Macchia and Osteria Antico Pozzo, while for those who want to enjoy an endless panorama and exhaustive list of local wines we recommend the wine shops Franco Pacenti and Solaria, both in Montalcino. Feel free to ask our reception staff for more detailed advice based on what you are looking for and they will be happy to recommend the best local wine and food experiences for you.

 

THERMAL SPRINGS

In less than 50 minutes by car from Capanna Suites you can reach several different thermal spring areas: Rapolano Terme, Petriolo, San Casciano dei Bagni and San Filippo. In each of these locations you will find private thermal spa complexes that have various types of thermal baths and pools, beauty treatments and restaurants available to paying guests. Most of the areas also have a place where you can experience totally natural hot springs in the wild which are open and free of charge. For instance there are natural pools at the San Filippo thermal springs, just 30 minutes by car from Capanna, which are shown in the photo on the right. These thermal springs are famous for their striking limestone formations set in the middle of the woods. Our reception staff will be happy to advise you on the thermal spring experience that is most suitable to your needs.

 

N.B.  These  activities are not managed directly by Capanna Suites, therefore we cannot guarantee that in the period you will stay with us they are all available. At your request - before or during your stay - our staff will make sure that they are feasible and help you to make reservations.
