They promise you a home to home rustic mountain forest experience. The private pool has a shallow area for inexperienced swimmers, and comes equipped with three meters trampoline, large-built barbecue, worktop with sink, thatched pergola, and fridge.
A walk to the beautiful medieval village of Castiglione
Trip to the city of Lucca which is approximately one hour from Prunecchio
This retreat will take place in Tuscany, Italy. Villa Prunecchio is a restored farmhouse perched above the Garfagnana valley in the province of Lucca, with southern aspect, and stunning views of the surrounding mountains.
This place has to be seen and felt to be believed. The view and sunny aspect are magnificent but it is only after a while you tune into the various sounds, and sights the immediate vicinity has to offer: crickets, wild boar, deer, cuckoos, owls, woodpeckers, spades, axes, scythes. Cars cannot come down to the hamlet which makes it stand apart in its old worldliness.
Situated in the tiny hamlet of Prunecchio, and just a 15 minute walk to the village of Chiozza, the house is a haven for those in search of peace, and tranquility in a gorgeous Tuscan setting. Several walking routes from the house will take you along ancient mule tracks to medieval bridges, and villages, through chestnut forests, and way marked trails.
The retreat offers healthy, but delicious, Italian food coming from their local mountain, and forest, which includes local specialities such as chestnuts, porcini mushrooms, and spelt products. They offer light pre-yoga breakfast snacks (herbal teas, good, strong coffee for the addicts, homemade muesli, fruit, and yoghurt). For brunch, you will enjoy buffet consisting of delicious vegetarian homecooked food.
During dinner, you will be offered delicious vegetarian homecooked food. One of their evening meals will be cooked in a cauldron in the forest (weather permitting), and another evening meals will be Indian ayurvedic style. They offer you pizza (after a fifteen minute walk under the stars) at their local village pizzeria on one of the evenings. All meals are organic, and local as much as possible.
Apart from the walk to Castiglione which is included on the program, there is also an optional wonderful two-hour walk to the medieval village of Sillico where there is a restaurant which offers divine homemade pasta. San Pellegrino, at 1500 metres, home of a twelfth century monastery is a fifteen minute drive from Prunecchio.
