Beckoning all artists near and far, Villa Lena is a haven for the creative mind, nestled amongst the rolling Tuscan hills within its own 500-acre estate set just an hour outside of Florence. Rejoicing with a celebration of local Tuscan history, culture and food, spaces are designed to promote artistic expression — from the expansive woodlands and nearby towns to culinary classes and communal dining experiences. From April to October, the villa hosts artists-in-residence who charm guests with an array of talks, workshops and other events.
Dating back to the 19th century, creativity and collaboration are the cornerstones of life here at Villa Lena Agriturismo. Think a boho vibe with days spent basking under the Italian sun, book in hand by the pool as you gaze out onto the undulating Tuscan landscape.
Located a 45-minute drive away from Pisa and approximately an hour's drive from Florence, Villa Lena has an intimately remote feel and a slow-living atmosphere. Untouched woodland surrounds the property for a setting that is truly inspiring for both individuals and families.
Lovingly renovated to form 15 rooms and six apartments, the newest Fattoria selection has been created from the estate's stables, featuring majestic beamed ceilings and luxurious marble bathrooms. Spread out across the estate, each room type offers charming views — from valley vistas to a private swimming pool.
Communal dining is emphasised at the villa, with around 70% of its produce sourced directly from its own land and vegetable gardens. Enjoy a sunset chatting with like-minded individuals and exchanging cultures and retreat to The San Michele Restaurant offering farm-to-table menus that showcase the true brilliance of local suppliers.
Admire the beautiful vineyards and olive groves from the restaurant's communal tables or retreat to the pool with panoramic views around the surrounding valley. Villa Lena provides an idyllic and unique environment for a range of group retreats. From floristry and cooking to yoga and corporate getaways, this rare creative agriturismo in Tuscany allows all those who visit to truly immerse themselves.
