Hot air ballooning and champagne breakfast
Do you want to see Tuscany from a completely different point of view? Why not from an hot air balloon?
A driver pick you up at the villa and drive you to the launch site. You fly over the Crete senesi an area of rolling hills, villages on hilltops and isolated farmhouses and castles. Afterwards you enjoy a splendid champagne breakfast laid out in the field where you land. The "ballooning season" is approximately late Spring to early Autumn with annual variations. Sometimes May is cold and rainy and October is warm and sunny -- you never know! -- but the middle months of the summer are regularly good for ballooning.
