Ladies Tuscan Villa Retreat 2019!
Join us on this wonderful retreat! Our villa is located on a panoramic hill in the Chianti area, in the heart of Tuscany.
The house (part of a olive oil farm) has been recently restored and transformed into a charming country villa steeped in atmosphere and history. Enjoy your own private bedroom and bath while being pampered with amazing food, wine, massage, private tours and more! As a bonus the small town of Cavriglia is within walking distance for exploring.
