Podere Monellini

.Natura .Relax .Armonia

Podere Monellini, situated in a location offering a relaxing stay surrounded by nature, promotes meetings with others and the possibility of participating in group activities such as Yoga, Bio-dance, Martial Arts and anything else that may help us to rediscover our inner balance and enter into harmony with our surroundings. It promotes all forms of art, considering them as manifestations of our spiritual side, and thus provides the space for groups of artists, such as musicians or painters, to give expression to their art.

In order to promote the activities listed above, we provide a large studio (120 sq metres) with a flexible wooden floor, bathed in light flooding in from the huge windows, creating the right environment and atmosphere of tranquility to practice all the arts that require reflection and meditation, and thereby providing teachers with a suitable setting for their talks or seminars, flexible, well-conceived and focused on the needs of all.

Podere Monellini is based on a farm in the Comune of Scansano, in the province of Grosseto in the region of Tuscany known as the Maremma. Situated 350m above sea-level, it offers comfortable accommodation in two old stone farmhouses, both restored in accordance with the original structures and thereby maintaining the particular characteristics of country houses, such as the beams in chestnut wood, roofs tiled with traditional Tuscan tiles and stone floors laid by hand, giving the house a traditional atmosphere. In an idyllic setting, the coast lies within easy reach (the nearest beach is 30km away) and several medieval towns are close by, it offers magnificent, almost 360 degree views towards Monte Argentario, the island of Giglio and Monte Amiata. The nearest village, only 6km away, is famous for its locally grown wine, Morellino di Scansano.
