Accommodations

During this retreat, you will stay Agriturismo IPoderi which offers four rooms furnished in Tuscan style, unique in its kind, in the country style but with all the necessary comforts. Their goal was to create a relaxing atmosphere that makes you experience the origin of a peaceful life of other times. They have tried to renovate the farms in an authentic way with old wooden beams and custom-made furniture in style, it will be difficult to recognize modern furnishings with an antique style.
All rooms have wireless internet access, an individual thermostat. Guests have access to the garden to the yoga room and the restaurant. Well trained dogs are welcome there. The guests are welcome to use the pool (at the nearby "Villa Palazzone") which can be reached either in minutes on the road (by car) or on foot following a delightful trail which links the two farmhouses.
The rooms have large windows with breathtaking views and wrought-iron beds, free Wi-Fi, air conditioning, towels and linens, shampoo and hair dryer. Guests have access to a 50-square-meter common living area, a covered outdoor patio, and a yoga room. The garden is bordered by the woods, where guests may make use of wooden tables and a barbecue. From there, nothing can beat the picture-perfect sunsets and the stunning 360 views over Chianciano, Val di Chiana, Cortona, a glimpse of Trasimeno Lake in the distance, and even Pienza and Montalcino.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My inspiration is a desire to gain a deeper connection to and understanding of myself, something that I've been working hard on for so long and will continue to do in the future. I view a retreat as a wonderful way to focus entirely on this without the distractions of every day life! Nicola

Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health.
