The accommodation cost for the week range from a six bedroom unit at €1060 down to a two-bedroom unit at €630. These rates for the retreat are lower than advertised on the website.
Each unit has its own separate bathroom and toilet so you can share a unit with other participants and therefore share the costs.
“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
Each unit has all the modern conveniences including a fully equipped kitchen while still being very rustic. See website of rooms:

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 a 20 minute taxi ride to Fattoria L’Ottavo. In the past groups of attendees have arranged to meet in Florence. We will help organise a meeting point near Santa Maria Novella Railway Station in Florence so you can share a mini bus to the Fattoria.
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).
