Our region is characterized by gravel roads, breathtaking views, rolling hills, an ideal condition to be discovered even by bicycle.
To help you discover the true essence of our territory, (avoiding tourist traps or purely commercial offer) we are creating a network of companies dedicated to offering valuable services and entousiastic work. We started cooperate with Stefania and her bike renta company in Pienza ( in order to allow you preferential rental rates for mountain bikes, racing bikes and and electric bikes.
They will recommend the routes to do during your holiday, depending on your needs and your training level.
You can also arrange excursions with English speaking guides who will take you (always taking into account your physical condition), to the most hidden corners.

When tired you can relax in front of a tasty picnic or making a stop in a small restaurant, personally chosen by the guide.
At Politian Apartments we offer a safe and special storage room for our guests bikes and equipment
