Bed, Breakfast & Book retreat

Individual retreat for anyone who wants to stay away from worldly seductions and write

You just need oceans of time and a beautiful view for the inspiration to flow

Join us and spend some time in the North of Tuscany on top of a mountain where worldly seductions are kept at bay and you'll find the inspiration to start, finish or improve your work.

You will be writing individually while other guests are away for the day or at least respect your space and stilness while working. There is no mentor or coach available but I'll be  your host.



The Villa is on top of a hill near olive groves and woods ideal for hiking and there is a limited bus service to the near town of Pietrasanta. The tranquil atmosphere and the authentic hospitality in this 17th century family home make the retreat a heaven on a hill (see more reviews of guest of previous writing retreats on Tripadvisor).

Your accomodation is in our Bed & Breakfast. You'll have a single room with shared bathroom. You can write indoors or outdoors in the big shady garden and when you are not writing, you can read a book in a hammock or go for a walk, or take a daytrips to Lucca, Pisa or as far as Florence.


How to reach us

The nearest airport is Pisa. Connections from the UK are with British Airways, Easyjet and Ryanair. Flights from The Netherlands leave from Amsterdam or Rotterdam ( or Eindhoven and Weeze/Dusseldorf ( Detailed information on your onward journey to the Villa will follow as soon as you book, but make sure you land before 7.30 pm so you can connect to onward busses or trains.

How about lunch and dinner?

While breakfast is part of the deal, your lunch and dinner are up to you. There are a few options to consider: you either stroll down to the local pub for an affordable and tasty meal or you do your own shopping and stock everything in the communal frdge and cook or BBQ your food.

Talent is extremely common. What is rare is the willing-ness to endure the life of the writer.
