10 days of inspiring yoga, light + magical nature
Location: Our newly discovered venue is a historic country estate, situated in a picturesque landscape of unique wild beauty. House and nature melt into harmony radiating the golden light of Tuscany…amidst vineyards and surrounded by olive groves and idyllic hills to give an ideal environment for our yoga practice + holiday retreat.
Accommodation: The estate has been completely renovated and furbished, retaining it’s magical authenticity + empathy with nature, to offer guests a tasteful + relaxing ambience where new stories may be written. Each room has been individually styled, paying attention to colour, harmony and balance with the environment. All rooms are en-suite or shared friend/family suites, with free WiFi, a small desk, fans and/or air-conditioning to keep you cool during siesta!
Cuisine: Meals will be freshly prepared daily using the best of local produce and will be delicious, nutritious and balanced vegetarian cuisine with special dietary requests catered for if notice is given in advance or when booking.
Yoga is twice daily: a morning dynamic flow to enliven + energise and a soft evening practice with pranayama, meditation and relaxation to calm + soothe. The yoga classes can be outside, under shade alfresco or in the cool yoga shala.
Activities: Besides the yoga classes there are many other activities and facilities available:
- Beach volleyball court
- Cookery classes
- Wine tasting
- Gym room equipped with weights and cardio machines
- 15 m Boccia (or Boules to you!) court under shady trees
- Horsemanship + riding lessons along the many horse trails leading through the wild and unspoilt countryside along fields, through dense forests and small rivers.
- Hiking trails: explore on foot the beauty of the Tuscan area around our estate.
- This area also offers some great cultural day trips to villages, markets and castles, such as San Gimignano, Siena, Florenz, Bolgheri or Volterra.

Getting there: We recommend you fly to Pisa + arrive either around 12 mid day OR arrive between 3 + 4pm and we will arrange a mini bus taxi to pick you up at the airport along with our other guests. Alternatively you may wish to fly to Florence, although there are less flights (which tend to be more expensive) and stay the night over to view this gorgeous city. We then can arrange a mini bus taxi to pick you up along with our other guests at 1pm from the central train station. The mini bus taxi takes 8 persons meaning the price of the transfer can be shared. For 8 persons per mini bus taxi the cost is approximately €40 pp.
Individual + shared taxis can also be arranged.
