Retreat location

il Canneto di Pomaia is a traditional Tuscan style villa surrounded by green stretches and magnificent views of rolling hills, which fosters a unique sense of relaxation. Away from the traffic and the chaos, il Canneto di Pomaia is a place to reinvigorate your mind, body, and soul. They offer a private pool and tennis court, which also doubles as a 5-a-side football pitch. The tranquil surroundings provide an ideal respite from the surrounding cities.

Nearby cities include the ancient city of Lucca, with its intact renaissance-era city walls, the lovely medieval city of Siena, with its world famous central piazza, Il Campo (featured in the James Bond movie Quantum of Solace), Pisa and it's leaning tower, and Firenze, the cradle of the renaissance full of museums, palaces, and churches filled with some of the greatest artistic treasures in the world.

It has also been the home of the holy Dalai Lama for some time. Also, the lake of Santa Luce and many seaside Etruscan villages are both less than a 25 minute drive from il Canneto di Pomaia.
