Our Women’s RETREAT gives you time for you, and you only, to relax, breathe and think, to rediscover the honest truths that are hidden within, waiting to be uncovered.

Ladies it is time to invest in Your Life by Prioritizing You !!!

Taking yourself on a RETREAT is an investment in you, in your happiness, life and ultimately those around you. After all, a happier you is a better boss, mum, partner, daughter, sister and friend.

Ebbio is a 12th century colonic-style complex, immersed in the ancient Holm oak woods right at the gate of Montemaggio hill.
This magical farm sits between Siena and Florence, just 1.8 km away from the medieval village of Monteriggioni.
Ebbio is an organic farm of 7 hectares, we cultivate olive trees, vineyards, fruits and vegetables, used in the preparation of the vegetarian meals we offer during your stay.

Enjoy everything the heart of Tuscany has to offer; cooking lessons, bike rides through Medieval villages, a river day trip with a picnic lunch, an afternoon looking at art in Florence, a wine tasting evening, ample hiking, etc. etc.

There is going to be plenty of free time for you to do what makes your soul happy. You can choose to do them alone or part of a group, this is your Midlife Awakening Retreat .
You can wander to the nearest village, a 15 minute walk away to shop, curl up under an old growth oak and read, or hike/bike throughout the surrounding land.

There are 9 individually and tastefully decorated bedrooms (& 5 bathrooms) with earthy colours and views of the rolling Tuscan hills.

We are opening spaces for 16 women to join.
