My stay in Lorenzana has been just perfect. I organized a one-week yoga retreat and the place fully satisfied my need: great space for the practice, clean and confortable bedrooms, deliciuos meals and a wonderful swimming pool for relaxing moments. The property is big and very well-maintained and the house is furnished in true Tuscany style. Termal baths, good tipical restaurant and Pisa town not far away. I definitely raccomend a stay in Lorenzana and don't forget to buy olive oil, wine and honey produced in the farm... a truly superb tasty experience!!! Thank you Chiara! Rossana
