Villa Benvenuti is a beautiful 17th century villa recently converted into a stylish boutique retreat centre. Located in heart of Tuscany, the villa is just 30 minutes from Pisa, one and a half hours from Florence and the Cinque Terre.
Set amongst 28 hectares of natural woodlands and surrounded by forests, the villa sits high on a hillside overlooking a panorama of olive groves, fruit trees and vineyards. The property has been fully restored to the highest standards and the grounds are lush and abundant. There are several grassed terraces for enjoying the stunning views, a secret garden waiting to be discovered, a swimming pool set amongst olive groves and oak trees, bubbling fountains and sheltered spaces for meditation, reading or relaxing.
Yoga and meditation is practiced in several indoor and outdoor spaces – each with a unique atmosphere of peace and tranquility for centering the mind and body. Our indoor yoga room can accommodate up to 16 participants and is fully equipped with yoga mats, blankets and cushions.
Wine, olive oil, herbs, vegetables & fruit are all produced in abundance on the estate and provide the essential ingredients for our deliciously fresh, organic, vegetarian meals and cleansing herbal teas.
The natural surroundings and secluded setting of Villa Benvenuti create an atmosphere of calm and stillness, ideal for yoga and meditation retreats and holidays.
