HOLIDAY at Gemma & Tonino's Biodynamic Farm

Up in the Tuscan hills - 42 hectares of gardens, woods, fields, olive groves, and pastures.
An idyllic, peaceful, protected, rural setting - within easy reach of beaches, historic towns, sites of special interest, top restaurants.


The environment is very conducive to yoga. The spacious studio crafted from wood with a sprung floor looks out over the valley.


Gemma and Tonino farm the land and produce fresh milk, cheese, honey, fruits and vegetables. Tonino's wood and stone sculptures adorn the farm.


They have built an open-air Greek theatre into the hillside where there are performances.
Gemma and Tonino run a theatre group called Theatro Unicorno, and invite professional directors to lead workshops.


Many friends from the locality are also participants in Theatro Unicorno. The neighbourhood is community spirited, made up of lively, friendly people. All the neighbours are organic farmers too.


So no pesticides etc. are used anywhere near the farm. It's all healthy and natural.
People have been drawn to this special place for millennia, there's a substantial Roman / Etruscan ruin on site...
