“Living in the Fattoria in the middle of the magnificent scenery has also contributed to the success of the retreat. In fact, the calm that emanates from this place connected me even more with the present moment” Nathalie Croteau, Montreal, Canada – 2017 Retreat

The Fattoria is approximately 1 hours drive south of Florence for those hiring a car. If travelling by train from Rome or Florence you can get off at Figline Valdarno railway station and be collected by arrangement with Anna- Maria from Fattoria L’Ottavo. In the past groups of attendees have arranged to meet in Florence, Milan or Rome so as to travel together to Lucolena.
All apartments are in tranquil surroundings with both the outer structure of the buildings as well as the entire interior kept in the typical style of Tuscany. All apartments were recently restored and furnished with modern comfort like satellite TV, wall safes, modern baths, etc., and have a splendid view over the surrounding vineyards, as well as a garden or terrace. It is a working winery in a working village (it is more rustic than tourist orientated).
