We stayed here as part of a walking group booked through KE travel. The villa was beautiful, in an idyllic situation with a beautiful swimming pool, gardens and the most amazing views.Jamie and Ailsa were the perfect hosts with lots of local knowledge. Ailsa cooked amazing meals which were very much enjoyed by all the group. I would thoroughly recommend... More

My wife and I spent a wonderful week at Col di Lavacchio in September 2014 with a guided hiking group. The hiking led by Lindsay Cannon, a superb and fun guide, was exciting and challenging. One of the most challenging aspects of the hikes was simply leaving the gorgeous grounds of Col di Lavacchio, a restored farm in rural Tuscany.... More

Earlier this month, I went on a Tracks and Trails 'Wild Tuscany' walking holiday to Col Di Lavacchio. Everything about it was wonderful: the farmhouse accommodation (not forgetting the pool and the pizza oven); the hospitality of the owners, Ailsa and Jamie; Ailsa's cooking (bliss, especially the delicious packed lunches with not a sandwich or bag of crisps in sight);...

I stayed there for my yoga retreat. Lavacchio is located in an extremely scenic and peaceful place in the Tuscan mountains. The property has all the mod cons you can wish for and is nicely decorated. The surroundings are breathtaking and it is very easy to go trekking in the mountains. If you prefer to relax there is a swimming... More

Lavacchio is a magical, quiet and calming place with stunning views over the valley. It is perfect for yoga or pilates retreats and walking holidays, and Jamie and Ailsa are excellent hosts, cooking up delicious home-grown food and very happy to help with any advice. They have made the place look beautiful, ensuring that your stay is comfortable and relaxing.

My week at Lavacchio was absolutely heavenly. Jamie and Ailsa are wonderful hosts, and carefully consider every detail about their beautiful property for their guests, and at every turn you can see the way they lovingly tend to the place, from the lush lavender bushes fringing the poolside setting, through to the perfect positioning of the hilltop yoga shala.

Some experiences change you for all the right reasons and my yoga week at Col di Lavaacchio was one of them. A stunning setting in the Tuscan mountains, the farm buzzing with the happiest bees gorging on swathes of lavender. Outstanding attention to detail, all your senses are catered for, from the gorgeous meals, made with the freshest and thoughtfully... More
