Art and nature in Villa Lena

Villa Lena, Palaia, Pisa

Villa Lena’s compound in Palaia (Pisa) extends over five hundred hectares of Tuscan hills, covered in vineyards, olive groves, and forests. It is much more than a traditional pleasant retreat, where you can restore the spirit and forget the city’s hustle and bustle for a few days. It’s a place with a heart of art and culture, ready to spark creativity.

The apartments and homes scattered on Villa Lena’s estate, connected through pathways waiting to be explored, are furnished with vintage pieces and works by the resident artists.

All you have to do is choose: “Fattoria” was recovered from former stables, maintaining tall ceilings, terraces and chimneys; “San Michele” is close to the central pool; “Renacchi” is only a ten-minute walk from the main estate, perfect for a family holiday; “Stento” and “Stentino” are two independent houses that share a swimming pool…

And finally, “La Villa” is a 19th-century structure in which the resident artists can be seen at work.

I have nature and art and poetry, and if that is not enough, what is enough?, Vincent Van Gogh wondered.
A few days here, and you will wonder the same thing.
