What to expect

Villa Colle di Giotto is part of a farm complex, but it is completely independent. To get to the house you will be driving on a country road lined with wheat fields and old farms. It is a relaxing retreat for nature lovers and for people who want to disconnect from a hectic life. Imagine visiting Florence and Tuscany and after a day of exploring, coming home to Villa Colle di Giotto where you can relax by taking a stroll along the fields or following a private yoga and meditation session.
The building consists of two floors: on the ground floor there are a big kitchen with traditional marble countertop, a spacious living room with a big wooden table and relaxing area with sofas and armchairs, and a bathroom (without shower); on the second floor there are 4 double bedrooms (2 with ensuite bathroom) with beautiful views on the countryside, and a bathroom with shower.

In the patio there are a small kitchen with a wood fired oven for pizza, a flowerbed with aromatic herbs, and many sitting corners all around. Moreover, you have a second shower, open air.
The big garden also hosts an old stone well and a vegetable garden where you will find local products 100% bio.

Recover your inner balance

Tuscany Yoga Retreat


Mariagrazia, the owner of Villa Colle di Giotto, is primarily a yoga teacher and the owner of Ganesh Yoga Mugello, the main yoga center in the area. She will be more than happy to entertain you with private yoga and meditation sessions on the premises of the villa: this is the ideal place, surrounded by the wild and peaceful Tuscany countryside of Mugello, on the wooden deck or on the lawn, which are suitable both for single lessons and for bigger parties.
In the morning, in the open space on the wooden deck, you will be looking East to the sunrise, while breathing in deeply all the nature around, and starting with energy a new day. Or in the late afternoon, after a day of exploring, you will reconnect with nature while sunset is colouring the sky.
Villa Colle di Giotto is certainly the ideal location for contemplation and recovering your inner balance.
Guests can use the wooden deck or the garden for yoga and meditation, or ask us for private sessions at the villa.

Mugello countryside

Authentic Tuscany

The land of Mugello is an unspoilt area in northern Tuscany, a few kilometers north of Florence. The area is a wide, green valley crossed in parts by the Sieve river. It is the cradle of the famous Medici family and of painters such as Giotto and Beato Angelico.
It still is a hidden gem of Tuscany, with history, wild nature, traditional Tuscan food and a fresher climate during the hot Italian summers.

The villa is located in Lo Spinoso, Mugello, Tuscany (35 km from the center of Florence, close to the small towns of Borgo San Lorenzo and Vicchio). It is surrounded by green hills and wheat fields. A very quiet place for travellers who want to reconnect with nature.
Close by you you will find the House of Giotto, where the architect of the famous and splendid Campanile di Giotto in Florence (known as Giotto’s bell tower) was born back in 1267.

Also nearby: Mugello circuit (12 km), Fiesole (28 km), Bilancino Lake (20 km). For shopping lovers there is McArthurGlen Barberino Designer Outlet (23 km).

Coming by car is strongly recommended to completely enjoy the area. Public transport not available at walking distance.
