Welcome to the Tuscany coast!
We are a retreat center and we offer rural hospitality on the hills of the Etruscan Coast in a secluded position in the countryside. We are 3 friends including me managing this magic house in the forest and we host independent travelers, digital nomads and several residential retreats every year for Yoga, Meditation, Ecstatic Dance and more. The vibes are very chill and there's nothing but beautiful nature all around us!
In the past years we welcomed volunteers from all over the world who, besides giving a great help, are fantastic individuals we feel lucky we got the chance to know. Volunteering is an experience of connection and community to make the world a better place! We were volunteers ourselves in the past and we know how important it is when you arrive to a new place to feel welcomed and part of the family. We strive hard to make this true for our volunteers. When you are here you’re one of us.
Every year we need some extra hands especially during the pre-season (March-May) and at the end of the season (October-November). Our volunteers, being such, don't have strict rules or volunteers shifts, we will agree together on what works best. Usually the tasks for the workawayers are mainly: little gardening, a little general maintainance, signposting (which implies a bit of trekking in the woods) and things like that.
If you have a special skill (like for example carpentry or construction guru, Masterchef, Yoga teacher, Massage therapist, etc.) it's worth mentioning when you first message us! Plus, we encourage creativity expression during your stay and many volunteers left behind beautiful creations!
We are looking usually for a single workawayer or two. You should not mind being outdoor in an isolated house in the forest. The closest village is 2km, the beach 15km. We go at least once a week with the car to the next big town for the weekly farmer's market, that's on the seaside and sometimes we stop for a walk on the beach or a dip during season. It's not easy, but possible, to go around with public transport, your own vehicle or driving license (valid for Italy) is recommended if you want to be independent.
Most of the time we'll eat and cook together, and sometimes party too! But, when it's just not possible, you will have to take care of your own meals (and parties). Accommodation could be in one of the apartments, in the meditation room or in a tent outdoor, unless you come with your own house (van, tent, hammock), in that case we'll find a spot for you!

You'll learn to understand how is life in the real Tuscan countryside and its small villages, and you'll certainly enjoy the food culture and learn a lot of new recipes. You can learn a lot of the Italian language in the process if that's what you're looking for and, especially if you live in the city, enjoy the real sound of silence and everything about a Mediterranean forest: the free food it offers, the animals that populate it, the different vegetation and so on. We have also learned many tricks and tips from our Workawayers and that's what really makes the difference as the exchange is never only one way!
In the free-time you can use our outdoor hot-tub, the yoga room and deck or play table tennis!
