Yoga Retreat in Tuscany

Join me for another yoga retreat next year in the idyllic Le Pianore organic villa and farm!

Last year we had such a delightful week of relaxation, yoga, walking, sightseeing and lounging and we can not wait to recreate that next year in May.

The nature is at its peak of fresh beauty in May, our eyes will be spoiled with the multitude of colours and greens from the hills surrounding us. The weather is warm enough for swimming in the pool without being unpleasantly hot

THE PERFECT LOCATION TO RELAX AND EXPLORE

Set in the heart of the Tuscan Maremma, Le Pianore villas and organic farm is cradled between the medieval hilltop towns of Montelaterone and Monticello Amiata.

The spectacular views and untouched landscapes will give you a sense of freedom and relaxation as soon as you set foot there.

The estate is an original 15century farm which has been beautifully restored to keep the character and beautiful features. The villas and studio spaces, is the perfect base from which to explore the surrounding countryside, from the slopes of the Monte Amiata down to the Maremma coast.

There are many separate living areas, both indoors and out, with ample room for guests to settle in and make themselves at home.

The gardens at Le Pianore are a playground for adults and children alike. Chestnut, oak and cherry trees provide plenty of shade, while lavender and thyme, roses, jasmine and broom perfume and enliven the landscape.
