Venue Highlights

Villa Poggio Martino is located on a beautiful hill in Tuscany and consists of seven apartments, each one with a private terrace. Its wonderful panoramic position with view over the hills heading up to Montepulciano create a serene atmosphere. The house has been restored preserving the original architectural features and has been carefully decorated in rural Tuscan style.

Our villa goes back in history until 1700. It belonged to the Papal Family Piccolomini of Pio II, the Pope of Pienza. Initially it was used as a establishment of the hospital of Florence, to take care of passers-by in the more souther Valdichiana region. The villa, a single farmhouse of about 1000 square meters, is protected by the Fine Arts for its uniqueness.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
