Retreat location

Certano is a paradise place situated amongst vineyards and olive groves, seven kilometers south of the beautiful medieval town of Siena (Tuscany, Italy), with its famous Piazza del Campo where The Palio is run. This location offers holidays in refurbished farmhouses full of the typical Tuscan country atmosphere.

This place offers independent living solutions in comfortable and fully-equipped apartments, houses and rooms, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, all in a peaceful and sunny location. It is an ideal place for holidays and sightseeing, with plenty of excursions to nearby historical and artistic sites.

These holiday houses are part of a very small village called Certano, which dates back to ancient times, comprising an eighth-century chapel, a manor-house with a 17th-century façade, and a number of farmhouses.

It offers amazing views of the Chianti hills, fresh air penetrated with the scents of flowers and herbs, charming tranquility and inspiration. It is a place where you can relax, contemplate, connect with yourself and appreciate the gifts of nature, while enjoying the practice of the art of well-being.
