Live like a local in the lush rolling hills of Tuscany!

Nowhere else on earth do the locals spend more time discussing and consuming food and wine which is exactly what you'll do on this 5 night exploration of this picture perfect region in central Italy. Every day there's a new village or two to explore and another proud wine maker eager for you to sample their favourite vintage. Long lunches enjoying local, seasonal and sustainable produce break up our days of enchanting expeditions.

Step into living history and awe at the first example of renaissance architecture at the Palazzo Piccolomi, walk within the fortified walls of the Medieval town of Montalcino and stop off at the village of Bagno Vignoni where many a pilgrim has been before you to experience healing and refreshment in the hot springs. These are just a few of the must see tourist spots visited on retreat, plus we also have local knowledge of the best cafe's and shopping spots along the way.

Your accommodation is in a rustic 16th Century farmhouse perched atop a hill with sweeping views over the valley 'Val d'Orcia'. Before yoga, take a dream like morning stroll through the woods and flowered paths of the family owned 'agriturismo' where you might find yourself plucking a perfectly plump olive in the working grove. As you meander around the 100 hectare property you'll feel the gentle hum of the farm, cows being milked, horses being saddled up in the Manege and the gardens being tended. This is a place for reconnecting with the land, essential to the Tuscan way of life.

Have you ever wondered what if might be like to live like a local in Italy? Join us on retreat under the Tuscan sun and find out.
