We fly from an enchanted valley hidden below rural Montisi in Southern Tuscany; this is the real old Tuscany, a Tuscany as yet almost untouched by tourism with forests, vineyards and historical towns. From many years of experience; we now know that the region around Montisi, with its access to both Le Crete di Senesi and La Val d’Orcia regions, truly offers the most spectacular balloon flights.
We have 3 launch sites in the valley called Val d’ Chiana just to the west and below Cortona. We always use the same meeting point and then choose the launch site that will give us the best possible flight depending on the wind direction.
We have 3 launch sites in the immediate vicinity of Siena and we will choose the site that will give us the best possible flight depending on the wind direction. We will always meet at our main take-off site just to the Southeast of Siena at Casetta, Taverne d’Arbia.
Early morning take off with the hot air balloon from the Avignonesi winery.
