Villa Lena – the Arty Agriturismo | Tuscany, Italy

by Tuesday, January 9, 2018

Villa Lena is home away from home. Located in the heart of Tuscany, it is comprised of several buildings and beautiful countryside as well as a farm-to-table restaurant and a not-for-profit art foundation. Villa Lena is definitely from the new hotel generation.

The estate is located in the province of Pisa, secluded amongst 500 hectares of woodland, vineyards, olive groves and vegetable gardens. A 19th century villa sits at the heart of the property, originally built for an Italian aristocratic family; it now houses the Villa Lena Foundation and artist-in-residence programme.

Surrounding the villa, converted outhouses serve as self-contained guest apartments and shared facilities. Originally agricultural buildings, stables or hunting lodges each apartment has been renovated retaining its original farmhouse functionality. Rooms are furnished with locally sourced vintage furniture, antiques, and recycled hand-painted fabrics. Apartments are quiet and private whilst communal meals and social gatherings are held daily at the San Michele terrace restaurant and pool. Laid back, barefoot luxury makes Villa Lena an ideal retreat for families with packages available for those travelling with children.

Villa Lena has an international chef-in-residence program, which enables visiting chefs to curate a season and share their vision and recipes for organic and sustainable eating.
