Hot air ballooning

The base camp of the Tuscan Aerostatic Association is located in Tavarnelle Val di Pesa, in the vicinity of Villa il Santo. It is the launch site of thrilling hot-air balloon flights that last from 45 minutes to one hour and a half. Flying in a hot air balloon over the Chianti landscape, with its lovely hamlets and villages, beautiful art cities, ancient castles and abbeys, is an unforgettable experience and will make you cherish fond, lasting memories of your Tuscan holiday.


The balloons lift off early in the morning and only in good weather. On landing, you and your pilot will celebrate your airborne adventure with a delicious breakfast of typical local products accompanied by Prosecco wine, after which you will be driven back to the base camp. Hot air ballooning is a fantastic experience, exciting and relaxing at the same time, and we at Villa il Santo can organize it for you.
