Horseback riding between woods and vineyards at Madonie’s foot
On horseback through the vineyards of Sant'Anastasia, overlooking the sea and the mountains, discovering an ancient abbey, now turned into a 5-star Relais and a winery, at the foot of the wild Madonie Regional Park.
The Madonie tells of a world underlined by the green of the woods and the gray of the raw rock, where wild nature is the absolute protagonist.
The park reminds the old northern Italian mountain ranges, but it overlooks the deep blue of the Mediterranean Sea, as far as the eye can go, the Aeolian Islands.
Between rows of vines, away from the city traffic among woods and Mediterranean scrub, discovering and tasting, with an extra, the grapes of the Sant'Anastasia, producer of biodynamic wines, which respect the course of nature, avoiding the use of chemicals and machinery picking.
The ancient Sant'Anastasia Benedictine abbey of the 12th century has been restored and transformed into a beautiful 5-star relais too.
The nature of the Madonie and the connection with our steed will be the essence of this experience, on request and at an extra cost, it is possible to end the day with a guided tour of the cellars and a tasting of wines produced by the farm.
