Experience of a Lifetime...

Ebbio, a 13th century Tuscan Farmhouse, welcomes you with its spacious rooms full of fascinating history. Guests are warmly welcomed and all the vegetarian meals are organically grown on site. Activities include daily yoga, sound bath meditations, hiking, vineyard tours, cooking classes, + more. There are many wonderful ways to take in this beautiful landscape.

Enjoy silence and stillness, surrounded by earthy colors and fragrances that are still prominent from centuries ago. The mansion is surrounded by evergreen forest and beautiful rolling hills of vines.

Retreat activities include

This magical place sits between Siena and Florence. The amazing part is that it is still a working Tuscan Farm. An annual harvest of grapes is used to make authentic Chianti Wine that Tuscany is so well known for. They cultivate olive trees, vineyards, medicinal plants, fruits, and vegetables used in the preparation of the vegetarian meals during our retreat. The farm is home to a myraid of cows, horses, donkeys, chickens, doves, geese, and dogs.

In this place, you will find the spectacular scenery that combines the history and flavors that make Tuscany such a unique vacation experience.
