With Tuscany Now & More

Tuscany Now & More offers an array of exquisite villas and unique experiences perfectly suited to those looking to nurture body and soul. Properties offering yoga and wellness include:

I Corbezzoli, Chianti

Set on a hilltop with a beautiful private pool, the villa enjoys stunning views of the vineyards, olive groves and woodland south of Florence on the edge of the Chianti. But what really sets I Corbezzoli apart is its dedicated staff, including a dedicated chef that prepares breakfast, lunch and evening meals — served by energetic staff on your terrace or in the beautiful dining room. Your personal chef can tailor menus to suit all wellness requirements, be it vegan, vegetarian or simply healthy and wholesome.

The two houses that make up the property are surrounded by expansive gardens brimming with colourful shrubs, a perfectly peaceful spot for practising your downward dogs. The extensive lawn leads down towards a lovely private fan-shaped swimming pool, with a heated Jacuzzi for up to six people. From here you can enjoy wonderful views of the Valdarno valley and the mountains of Pratomagno.

In addition, to encourage a healthy body and mind, I Corbezzioli can organise vegetarian and vegan cooking classes catering for wellness-oriented guests.

This 11-bedroom property sleeps up to 22 people and Tuscany Now & More (, 020 7684 8884) offers I Corbezzoli from £ 11,320 per week.

Il Borgo di Petroio, near Florence

Il Borgo di Petroio is a beautiful stone farmhouse with private swimming pool, set on an important 900-acre estate in the hills above Rufina, within easy reach of Florence. The villa has a swimming pool that is positioned to enjoy sweeping views of the surrounding hills and bathes in the sun all day and the property boasts its very own yoga barn. A sense of complete tranquillity prevails at the villa making it a popular choice for yoga retreats.

If you’re still bursting with energy after morning yoga, you don’t need to venture far with an onsite astro-turf tennis court on the estate, which is shared with the estate’s Villa. Newly added is a multi-functional space which features a well-equipped gym area, massage area and an external Jacuzzi for up to 6 people. There are also several riding stables in the area as well as three 18-hole golf courses within an hour’s drive. Nearby Monte Giovi (992m/3224 feet) and its natural park provides exhilarating walking opportunities.

This 5-bedroom property sleeps up to 14 people and Tuscany Now & More (, 020 7684 8884) offers Il Borgo di Petroio from £ 4,110 per week.

Poggio Alto, Near Montepulciano

Poggio Alto is a beautiful property that sits on a hilltop that offers panoramic views in every direction of gently rolling hills near the medieval villages of Cetona and Montepulciano.

The interior has a sophisticated country residence feel with airy, spacious rooms, elegant furnishings and a truly splendid modern kitchen that leads out into the well-kept garden with a dining loggia and extensive lawns that surround the main house and lead to the large private swimming pool.

A well-stocked library speaks of the owners’ love of books, as do the many peaceful seating and reading areas dotted around the house and garden designed as quiet spots for reading; among these is a meditation garden inspired by German writer Hermann Hesse. This peaceful, zen garden features a pond and mesmerising views of rolling Tuscan hills. Home to a vivid array of colours, a mix of flowers, herbs and aromatic scents: a subtle hint of the four cosmic symbols – the water in the pond, the circle of stones with ashes reminiscent of fires and a blue corner representing the most spiritual dimension.

This 8-bedroom property sleeps up to 14 people and Tuscany Now & More (, 020 7684 8884) offers Poggio Alto from £ 3,260 per week.

Il Molinaccio, Chianti

This beautiful stone farmhouse and its private swimming pool sit peacefully on a terraced hillside surrounded by olive groves and woodland enjoying magical views of rolling hills, farmhouses and vineyards. In the heart of the Chianti, the property sits at the end of a private road surrounded by 64 acres ensuring total privacy and peace just minutes from the charming town of Castellina in Chianti.

Originally built as a mill in the 17th century, the current owners have spent years slowly and carefully renovating Il Molinaccio into a very sophisticated modern home, with spacious bedrooms, luxury bathrooms, a modern kitchen and stylish furnishings creating a supremely comfortable home for all seasons. The beautiful, shaded courtyard at the front of the house offers a serene spot for dining and relaxing al fresco with rows of lavender and rosemary leading across the garden to the private infinity edge swimming pool set amongst the terraced olive groves with sweeping views of the stunning valley.  Wild swimmers will relish the chance for a cooling dip in a freshwater pond situated near to the river just down the hill from the villa.

Yogis will love the villa’s stunning, double-height yoga barn ideal for practising peaceful sun salutations out of the glare of the midday sun.

This 5-bedroom property sleeps up to 10 people and Tuscany Now & More (, 020 7684 8884) offers Il Molinaccio from £ 4,079 per week.
