The first 3D range was built in March 2015 by German born Fabian Eder , a dedicated longbow archer and multiple tournament winner . He imbedded the range into the hills and slopes of a natural preserve area and strict no-hunting zone of pine and oaks woods and the typical Tuscan hill macchia.
The range is part of the extended 76 ha large property of the Agriturismo vacation rentals of Poderi Val Verde, an authentic 15th century Tuscan farm estate owned by his family.
Because of its challenging range , the perfect location and stupendous surrounding, in May 2016 the Chianti 3D Archery Center was chosen as official site of the WBHC 2017 (World Bow Hunter Championship) that will take place from 17 to 24 June 2017.
Following this event, 2 more of the 8 championship ranges will remain in addition to our existing home range bringing the count to 3 ranges as well as 1 neighboring one. A valley full of ranges – in front of the proper doorstep - the dream of every archer!
Presently the home range is set up with 22 positions with approx. 26 life sized 3D targets, ranging from bear to deer, to rat and crow – all set at long and short range, up- and downhill shots, a moving target, an elevated stand on the practice range, a panoramic picnic area as well as a challenging 107 m shot !!!
Beginners may participate in traditional archery lessons.
The house range can be divided in three rounds, a short 6 target "after work" round, another 11 target round and the full size round of all targets.
The slopes and inclined terrain and the off and on adventurous walkways ask for sturdy footwear and good physical fitness.
Next to the 3D archery ranges, one will find also perfect conditions for trekking and biking. The real hands-on cooking courses of local dishes are famous.
Easy to reach Poderi Val Verde is located in the heart of Tuscany, in the Chianti hills, only 3km away from Castellina in Chianti and within less then 1 hrs. drive of all major Tuscan sights.
We are looking forward to welcome you at the Chianti 3D Archery Center, the Cooking Lessons, the Trekking - all part of the splendid authentic Tuscan estate of Poderi Val Verde
