Connect with nature
in the heart of Tuscany
A the perfect retreat and holiday location in the hearth of Tuscany. A restored 13th century farm beautifully transformed in a tranquil spot for retreats and holidays. Nestled inside an evergreen forest, it sits on an extinct volcano that was sacred to the Etruscans, and overlooks the medieval walled town of Monteriggioni.
The country ways of old Italy are preserved here, where the owners dedicate themselves to the organic cultivation of their olive trees, vineyards, fruit, vegetables and herbs, which are then used in preparing home-made vegetarian meals.
The unique décor of the ten bedrooms builds on this traditional heritage, with earthly colours and windows onto the rolling Tuscan hills.
The variety of retreats available at this property offer many ways to attain inner harmony, be it through yoga practice, meditation, exercise, artistic creation or hands-on contact with nature in our fields. Their network of quality instructors and therapists offers you personalised experiences to maximise restoration, healing, and growth.
Their principle is that food is the ultimate source of health and happiness. They pride themselves of the use of fresh, locally sourced ingredients, primarily the produce they grow on their own site, which is certified organic. Over twenty years of travel and living by the mantra that ‘food is medicine’, their meals are a highlight for the guests: always rich in nutrients, organic and vegetarian, our menu varies to complement what’s in season in the fields. Mediterranean flavours meet new creations in the healthy, vibrant cooking.
Guests can participate in work on the farm, get their hands dirty and bring the lessons home to live a more mindful life.
