Le Pianore

About This Center

Le Pianore is a CCPB certified organic farmstead and we feel honoured to be the custodians of more than 30 hectares of woodlands traversed by the Zancona river and its tributaries. We manage our forests to provide the wood we need, ensuring forest regeneration and sustainable energy use. With more than 90% of our energy coming from renewable sources (solar panels and sustainably managed wood), we are proudly on our way to reaching our goal of total energy self-sufficiency. Furthermore, all water destined for agricultural use, including irrigation of the vegetable gardens, comes directly from the spring that bubbles up behind our family home.

Slow down and indulge the senses: visit world-renowned vineyards, dip into ancient Roman thermal baths, explore Etruscan tombs and stroll through Medieval villages. Or simply relax and make yourself at home in a profoundly peaceful setting

Venue Highlights

Set in the heart of the Tuscan Maremma, surrounded by woodlands, vineyards, olive groves and mountain streams, with spectacular views and untouched landscapes, Le Pianore Villa and Organic Wine Farm is an ideal venue for yoga holidays, holistic and creative retreats. Our farmstead, with its beautifully restored villas and studio spaces, is the perfect base from which to explore the surrounding countryside; from the slopes of the Monte Amiata down to the Maremma coast.
