Location

Lastra a Signa, Tuscany, Italy

The territory around Lastra a Signa has the power to amaze you, revealing itself not all at once but slowly, one step at a time. Lastra, as its simply called by locals, is surrounded by many small hamlets, each one of which is perfect for visiting, if only for the views to be found amidst the olive groves and vineyards.

The Labardi Farmhouse is located in the Tuscan countryside, 4 kms from Lastra a Signa and 15 kms from Florence. From morning till evening you can enjoy a wonderful view of Florence and the surrounding hills of Chianti.

 

Retreat Centre

Fattoria Agriturismo Albanese Labardi

The Labardi family specialises in organic farming on 7 hectares of land cultivated with olive groves, vineyards, fruits and vegetables. There is also a herd of Tibetan goats and other farm animals living on the farm, giving company to the visitors.

The retreat consists 6 days on the farm with a set program outlined below, but you also have a chance to spend a day with visiting any of the most beautiful cities of Tuscany such as Florence, Siena, Pisa, San Gimignano, Volterra and enchanted places of Chianti.


 (Please note that the transportation costs for the one day trip are not included in the retreat price, however we are more than happy to help the group organise a pick up/drop off if there is a demand.)

On the day off you can also taste and buy the farmhouse's products such as Red Wine IGT Toscano and extra virgin olive oil IGP.

Transport

 
Planes

We are organising a free pick-up and drop-off at Pisa airport on the first and last day of the retreat. The journey from the airport to the farmhouse takes approximately 50 minutes (depending on traffic).

We advise all group members to schedule their flight to arrive mid-day so we can collect everyone around the same time. If your flight is later on in the evening there is always an optional taxi/uber transport at your own costs.


Please keep us updated with your plans so we can make sure to collect all the members and make your journey as smooth as possible.

Similarly on the last day we organise a drop-off at Pisa airport between 1 & 3 o'clock in the afternoon so you can choose a flight that suits this arrangement. If your needs don't match the group's plan, please let us know so we can do our very best to help you arrange your journey.
