About This Center

Welcome to Podere Isabella, a stone farmhouse carefully restored and decorated with the owner´s collection of contemporary art and travel memories. A retreat center set in a nature conservation area in the heart of Tuscany. Relax on the sofa under the pergola with a 360 view of the Val d´Orcia, UNESCO World Heritage Site. Dine in the garden with trickling Feng Shui fountains. Dip in a swimming pool among a sea of rosemary. Feel the harmony of contemplating the tradition and beauty of an ancient land.

Our Intention is to create a space, where everything can happen, but nothing has to. It is your precious time, so do whatever feels good, and decide on a daily basis, what feels right today. “Our mission is to go with the organic flow and cycle of nature and life - non-harming - and eco-conscious.”
