 Podere Isabella is a holistic retreat center in the peaceful hills of Southern Tuscany, 60 km south of Siena, with a breath-taking view on the wonderful landscape of the Val d’Orcia, a UNESCO World Heritage site. This area is full of artistic treasures to discover and it is an unspoiled natural reserve for a variety of wildlife.

The property is composed by two buildings from the early ‘900’s, surrounded by two hectares of Mediterranean brush, olive trees, roses, cypress trees, fountains and a swimming pool.

The House has 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, double living room, kitchen, dining room and veranda. The spacious rooms are painted with natural colors and decorated with antique European and Asian furniture, ethnic materials and carpets, old prints and contemporary art. The big fireplace warms up winter nights; the meadow in front of the sacrd Amiata mountain is a perfect space for meditation. Boars, deer and pheasants roam in the vicinities.

Aurora’s activities take place in the barn, with 3 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, recently restored according to Feng Shui principals, with eco-friendly materials and alternative energy. On the first floor, an 80 sqm meditation room; on the ground floor, a 120 sqm open space that can double as a dormitory, a semi-professional kitchen, a dining room for 30 people and two porches for al fresco dining and relaxing on king size outdoor sofas.

We organize retreats of Yoga, Shamanism, Meditation, natural health and cuisine, and detox retreats. Our excellent organic bio-dynamic extra virgin olive oil is available for direct sale.
