Grempoli is located in the Tuscan countryside, in the province of Pontassieve, just 30 km from Florence. It is a small ancient property consisting of three houses, restored in a simple manner, respecting local history and environment.
The approach to Grempoli is on a gravel road lined by cypresses, used in ancient times to reach Romagna and still used today as a walking track up to Monti Giovi. Rarely visited by tourists, retaining the original spirit of Tuscany, the area offers opportunities for excursions, walking and riding, as well as the possibility to visit some of the most famous museums and art works in the world in nearby Florence.
Life at Grempoli – in harmony with nature and tradition.
The main house contains a sadhana hall or yoga practice room which is used for courses and workshops, with external doors leading to the olive grove and gardens producing organically grown vegetables. The terrace of the old tower overlooks a panorama of the surrounding hills and pastures. Accommodation is in comfortable, mostly shared rooms (from singles up to three occupants), with shared bathrooms. For residential workshops of up to 15 persons, the main house has two single, three double and two triple bedrooms with wood-beamed ceilings and windows looking out over the surrounding fields. Separate accommodation is available for facilitators. Meals are home-cooked, simple, nutritious and vegetarian, using local ingredients. They are based on fresh produce, in accordance with season. Most of our vegetables are picked directly from our organic garden.
