Agriturismo Le Pianore

Set in the heart of the Tuscan Maremma, Le Pianore villa and organic wine farm is cradled between the medieval hilltop towns of Montelaterone and Monticello Amiata. Surrounded by woodlands, vineyards, olive groves and mountain streams, it is a private haven ideally suited to creative exploration and spiritual practice: with its spectacular views and untouched landscapes, it imparts a real sense of freedom.

Our estate is an IMC certified organic farmstead and with more than 80% of our energy coming from renewable sources (solar panels and sustainably managed wood), we are proudly on our way to reaching our goal of total energy self-sufficiency. Furthermore, all water destined for agricultural use, including irrigation of the vegetable gardens, comes directly from the spring that bubbles up behind Maladina.

Agriturismo Le Pianore, with its beautifully restored villas and studio spaces, is the perfect base from which to explore the surrounding countryside; from the slopes of the Monte Amiata down to the Maremma coast. Slow down and indulge the senses: visit world-renowned vineyards, dip into ancient Roman thermal baths, explore Etruscan tombs and stroll through Renaissance villages. Or simply relax and make yourself at home in a profoundly peaceful setting. See more events in this venue

Laurie Richards
Nutritional Therapist and Co-founder of CALA Retreats

Laurie gained her DipCNM in Nutritional Therapy from the prestigious College of Naturopathic Medicine and has been practicing since 2012. Nutritional therapy encourages the use of whole and organic foods as medicine and addresses the root cause of illness, not just the symptoms, and accepts that given the right conditions the body has the capacity to heal itself. It is vital to approach each person individually as everyone’s requirements are different.

Nutritional therapy is key to addressing so many issues in life and a poor diet can manifest itself in so many negative ways including stress and fatigue. By educating clients to understand the cause of the problem she makes it her priority to set them on the path to better physical and mental health. Laurie has made it her passion to share her knowledge through 121 consultations and talks both in social groups and the corporate world , inspiring others to make the right food choices.

Having experienced first hand the positive effects that retreats have on your health and wellbeing, Laurie can attest that simply taking time out to focus on oneself is truly life-changing. Teaming up with Carolyne Ji to create CALA Retreats made perfect sense as they both have an invested interest in helping people to feel great about themselves.

Chocolate, anything over 70% she finds hard to resist, thank goodness the cacao bean is full full of magnesium and is great for the heart.. Which is why Cacao will always be included In the retreats. No one should go without it.
