UPCOMING DEPARTURES

Le Pianore

The villas are immersed within a 50 ha estate of rolling hills, vineyards, groves and woodlands. Having no immediate neighbours means we have total privacy, and no noise restrictions or curfew; making it an ideal venue for a retreat or a special celebration such as a wedding or birthday. The gardens are a playground for adults and children alike: lime, oak and cherry trees provide shade, while lavender and thyme, roses, jasmine and broom perfume and enliven the landscape. Dip into our swimming pool for respite from the midday heat and enjoy lounging on the deck chairs until sunset, watching the sky turn red and feeling the cool evening air descend.

We have been hosting retreats and providing support to teachers and workshop leaders for more than a decade. Many of our clients return year after year, becoming friends along the way. We feel that teamwork is key to creating extraordinary experiences and we will help you craft a unique and inspiring program: from planning your menu and tailoring activities to making you and your guests feel at home in our home.

A multifunctional studio with plenty of natural light, it is generously equipped with yoga and tatami mats, tables, chairs and blankets as well as a sound system. For those wishing to practice immersed in nature, there is a large sundeck and a shaded porch adjacent to the studio. In the cooler months the space is kept warm and cosy by a wood burning stove.

Perfect trip from beginning to end. Breathtaking Tuscan views from your comfy room. Delicious, fresh cheeses, vegetables, breads and regional dishes prepared and served with love. So enjoyed roaming the countryside, exploring flora and fauna, tasting the fruits of the land...all with the brightest of blue skies. Day trips to Siena, private wine tastings, charming towns and villages put you right inside the heart and soul of the region. Hosts Elena and Enrica charmed us from our first hello-hug to our last kisses goodbye and our drivers proved fun and engaging. Give yourself this trip; you will be glad you did!

The trip was beyond my expectations and Le Pianore was the perfect, quaint, BEAUTIFUL spot for the retreat. From waking up each morning to the sound of chirping birds, practicing yoga in a studio with the most spectacular views imaginable to the tasty, healthy, fresh meals each day and fantastic off-site excursions that were planned. And the Micillo family (proprietors) were so lovely and accommodating to all of our needs and requests. Kudos, also, to Julie and Jana for all of their hard work and planning that went into putting together this wonderful trip!
