Chianti views are always wonderful but seeing them from the sky, with the soft and slow rhythm of the wind and living, at the same time a unique experience, is an adventure you can’t miss.
We have booked ballooning flights for some of our clients - they require an early morning start but everybody comes back raving about the experience!
The flights leave in the early morning just after dawn. The inflation takes about 30 minutes, and the flight approximately 1 hour depending on wind and weather conditions.
You will fly over the legendary Chianti landscape with its hilltop towns, castles, valleys, famous vineyards, and mixed woodlands. A powerful landscape, one of the most civilised rural scenes on earth, cultivated tranquility of olives, vines, and corn. The olives’ silver and the many variegated shades of green appear as a veil over elemental majesty and silence.
After landing we load the balloon back onto the retrieving vehicles trailer which follows the balloon throughout the flight. Once the balloon is packed away we move on to enjoy a marvellous breakfast with local produce.
"We had a great flight yesterday morning. We took off in a field by the owners farmhouse and our flight was about 45 minutes. We landed in a field in the middle of nowhere, we were then picked up and driven back to the farmhouse for breakfast."
