We are located on the slopes of the chianti hills in the region of Tuscany. The main building is a sumptuous Renaissance villa dating back to the first half of the sixteen century. It dominates the eighty hectares of property, with its lush woods and hundreds of olive plants. Classic Italian garden with a central fountain welcomes visitors. Beautiful exotic plants embellish the grounds and peacock freely roam the property.
The view all around is breathtaking!
Many spiritually inclined or just curious people visit this place to experience ashram life where they can participate in the practices of Krishna Bhakti, yoga and meditation on a daily basis or longer.
The heart of this place is a Temple available for quiet meditation or for participation in conferences, ceremonies and kirtans -devotional singing.
For the volunteers, there is plenty of opportunities to engage in yoga, meditation and other spiritual activities (if they desire) besides daily required activities like helping with general maintenance, cleaning, gardening, orchards, cows, kitchens, etc.
