The detail

Rent an apartment or private house on the Villa Lena estate and you get more than just a relaxing escape in the Tuscan hills. This dreamlike place is also a base for artists, and their work is subtly woven into the whole experience.

The super stylish accommodation features vintage furniture set against whitewashed walls and terracotta tiles. Each airy, bright space celebrates the original features, and blends informality with the unmistakeable touch of an experienced designer. There are six buildings spread over 500 hectares. Sizes vary, from double luxury bedrooms, to a three-bedroom house.

To be at the heart of the action, choose the Fattoria previously the villa’s stables and now home to the main reception, lounge, and screening and games rooms. Renachi is a short walk away, and its six apartments and playground are perfect for families. Larger groups can enjoy Casetta Bella, a more secluded private house with four three double bedrooms.

Another building on the estate, St Michele, where you can find pastel bedrooms full of light, with private or shared bathroom, just above the restaurant. San Michele is also home of the restaurant, where long communal tables overlook the breathtaking view. Unsurprisingly, the food is glorious. As well as pizzas from the wood fired oven, the restaurant serves traditional and revisited Tuscan cuisine using local produce, much of it from the estate’s vegetable garden.

At the centre of it all, the 19th century villa is home to artists from around the world taking part in Villa Lena residential art foundation.

Of course, being in the heart of Tuscany is a highlight in itself. The iconic towns of Florence and Pisa are within reach, as are San Gimignano, Lucca and Volterra.

The Villa Lena shop sells the estate’s own wine and olive oil, as well as covetable art and commissioned objects from the artists and local craftspeople. So you even get to take a piece of this idyllic life home with you.
