Hello everybody,

I just returned from an amazing weekend in Tuscany near Siena and 100km from Florence. Close to the small picturesque town of Rapolano Terme there is a beautiful Polo estate called "Lati Castelli". It is run by an Argentine couple that moved to Italy seven years ago and has ever since been busy restoring their beautiful estate which now boasts 10 carefully restored Suites, an AMAZING panoramic pool and now most importantly a full-sized very well-kept Polo field!

Gonzalo, the owner, also owns an estancia close to Buenos Aires where his family breeds and trains their Polo ponies. Moreover, he made sure to bring 12 of his great ponies to Italy which are now available for Polo-playing guests of Lati Castelli.

I can only tell you that I am sharing this with you because I am truly amazed of this place: Lati Castelli has a great feel (or as the Argentina would say: buena onda) to it! The rooms are very nice, the food is fantastic and the Polo is even better. It is a real Argentine experience right in Tuscany!
Lastly, the prices are very reasonable. Double rooms vary between 120 and 140 Euro per night and Stick and Ball costs 50 Euro per hour (You can be sure to choose your horse and even ride 2 horses during the Stick and Ball whilst only paying for one).

And for the people that rather go for ride around the country side, Lati Castelli also offers this: Gonzalo is an amazing host, he will gladly take you for rides around the rolling Tuscan hills and show you Tuscany like you have never experienced it before.

Enjoy! laticastelli.com

Hi Juan,

This looks like a wonderful place. Is Spring time a good time to come visit?

Hello everybody,
