The concept of the Cornacchino was born from a great passion for horses by its three founders:Ezio, Giulio, Fabio instructors and guides for over 30 years.
We discovered 30 years ago this magical place in this part of unknown Tuscany, full of natural beauty and surrounded by wonderful landscapes and villages; we loved it and we created what is now Cornacchino.
We invite you to share the magic atmosphere of this beautiful place with us!
"The Cornacchino" is nestled in a secluded valley in the natural park of "Monte Penna". Our pasture is surrounded by vast forests of chestnut, oak, beech and pine trees where you can meet roe, wild boar, porcupines, badgers and sometimes even deer.
On the surrounding hills, are grazing sheep, Chianina cows and a herd of wild horses.
You can see, on clear days, the sea and the Giglio island, the Apennines mountains, Bolsena lake, and sometimes the Montecristo isle.
Our horses live in small herds on 100 hectares of pasture land, in complete accord with their natural needs.
We have particular attention to respect for nature and horses which we consider as partners and colleagues in our adventure.
Our hospitality is familiar and informal.
