"Le Pianore" is composed of a guest villa, a residential villa, and a 50ha organic farm.
Villa Campostefani is the main guest villa and, together with the Fienile cottage, it has ten spacious bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen with adjoining dining room. There are many separate living areas, both indoors and out, with ample room for guests to settle in and make themselves at home. Be sure to light up the barbecue and wood-fired pizza oven.
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.
There is wi-fi for all to enjoy, a small library to peruse at your leisure and a satellite television in the upstairs family room.
There is also a ping pong table, a volleyball net, swings and a jungle gym for the little ones.
The gardens at Le Pianore are a playground for adults and children alike. Chestnut, oak and cherry trees provide plenty of shade during walks, while lavender and thyme, roses, jasmine and broom perfume and enliven the landscape.
We lovingly maintain a 50ha farm with organic vegetables and fruits and make our own wine, honey, and olive oil. You are welcome to come and explore our garden and pick fresh produce to enjoy during your meals.
Le Pianore offers all the facilities and infrastructure needed to host quality retreats and workshops in a beautiful and peaceful setting, ideally suited for creative exploration and spiritual practice. We cater to groups practicing a variety of activities, both meditative and dynamic: from yoga and martial arts to music, theatre and dance.
Sala San Francesco, built in the same Tuscan stone and vernacular style as the other villas, is an inviting space with oak parquet floors and large doors that open onto far reaching views of the pool and the gardens. A multifunctional studio with plenty of natural light, it is generously equipped with 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 pellet burning stove.
A separate loft area provides an intimate space for smaller groups or individual treatments. While the space lends itself to quiet reflection and meditation, the wall-to-wall tatamis also makes it an ideal dojo.
