Do you need Space? Time? A way to Connect? A great big belly laugh or a damn good Cry? This and so much more awaits you in your week of Umbrian Springtime.
A week that is focused on supporting you or those who are supporting you through your uniquely personal experience.
Both Aga and Carla's very different experiences of their breast cancer journeys, work together to create a safe space to help you move forward.
Your day will begin with a morning Tai Chi session or a sleep in, your choice, after breakfast Aga will spend time with us as a group, offering daily workshops to inspire your creativity. Whether you are writing a book, memoir, a blog or a journal. This week will bring insight and energy to the paper.
Our days will be a mix of exploration, rest and gelato.


Of our 6 guest rooms, we have two ground floor rooms with walk in showers. 2 ground floor rooms with baths and two first floor rooms with walk in showers. The workshop space is on the ground floor and easily accessible.
All meals are served on the ground floor, either in our East Wing dining room or our West facing terrace, weather depending.

Our film night can be in our ground floor West Wing lounge or outside under the Tuscan moon.

Eco Practices

Our house is set within a 1500 acre nature and organic farming estate. Half woodland, half farmland, we are very committed to working alongside nature, improving our eco system where we can.
We purchase our produce at local farmers markets and suppliers, including our cheese, meet and wine. Everything is locally sourced and seasonal where possible.
Italy has strict recycling laws which we happily adhere to. We have onsite worm composting for our food waste and plans to collect rain water and install solar panels in our upcoming development.

Directions and Travel

We are set in the beautiful countryside on the border of Tuscany and Umbria. Our local train station is Chiusi-Chianciano Terme. Our local airport is Sant'Egidio Airport (PEG - Perugia) 50min drive. Our nearest major airports are Fiumicino Airport (FCO - Rome), Galileo Galilei Airport (PSA - Pisa). If you are flying in to Perugia, a taxi is your best method of transport to come to us and is around 90euros from the taxi rank. If a few of you are flying in that way, the cost will of course be less. We can help organise a larger pick up if necessary for you to split cost. Train transfer from all other airports is quite easy, and we can help you with tickets and directions. We will always be happy to pick you up from Chiusi train station.
