Alpine Excursions

Horse riding


We are surrounded by forests and lakes and are very fortunate that we have excellent horse riding trails literally right on our doorstep.


The trails take you on a journey around the lake along the deeply wooded Serra out into unspoilt countryside and eventually up into the mountains.  The Biellese Riding Track extends for 210km, links Val Sesia to Baraggia running through astonishing landscapes, which change continuously thanks to the particular natural confirmation of the territory.  Along the way there are halting places and stables purposely equipped for an agreeable stop.  


We do have ponies here on the farm for the younger members to have a sit on.  For the adults and those who would like to view this beautiful largely unspoilt area on horseback in collaboration with one of our neighbours in Roppolo we are able to offer our guests days out trekking around the lakes and along the Serra by horse. 


For those who are looking for more structured lessons numerous riding schools offering both English and Western riding surround us. 




The Grande Traversata del Biellese (The Great Crossino of Biella).  This is a ring which in total covers about 200kms. It is not particularly difficult and runs at average altitudes, ranging from 400 to 1200metres it is a great way to see this amazing part of Italy.  There are 57 legs, which make up this great Biellese crossing.   It actually runs very close to the bottom of our field. 


We are able to offer walkers a drop off and pick up service to their chosen leg or legs of the day with a map and a picnic provided. Half Board is available. One week Full Board (picnic lunch) £550 first person £200 each additional person.
