Retreat location

Villa Lena is a unique Agriturismo located in the heart of rural Tuscany combining holiday accommodation, a farm-to-table restaurant, and a not-for-profit art foundation.

Guests are invited to stay with Villa Lena’s creative family celebrating the local Tuscan history, culture and food within an environment that offers international artists, writers, designers, filmmakers, musicians, chefs, and agricultural experts space to explore and hone their respective crafts.

The estate is located in the Province of Pisa, secluded amongst 500 hectares of woodland, vineyards, olive groves, and organic vegetable gardens.

A 19th-century villa sits at the heart of the property, originally built for an Italian aristocratic family. It now houses the Villa Lena Foundation and an artist-in-residence program.

Surrounding the villa converted historic agricultural buildings-former farmhouses, stables and hunting lodges-house self-contained guest apartments and shared facilities. Villa Lena cultivates both nature and culture, exemplifying a new way of living.
