Ebbio is a magical place surrounded by an evergreen forest, nestled in the heart of an ancient volcano that was sacred to the Etruscans. Located in the breathtaking countryside of Tuscany, it is only 42 km from Florence, 11 km from Siena, 9 km from Castellina in Chianti and 1km from Monteriggioni, a little medieval jewel. Ebbio is an 800 year old classic Tuscan farmhouse converted into a charming yoga retreat.
Looking out one of the many windows of the different accommodations in Ebbio, you will be captivated by the undulating hills swept with thriving vineyards, olive trees and enchanting evergreen forests. The amazing part of Ebbio is that it is still a working, organic Tuscan farm with its own Chianti wine production.
