Located in the heart of Tuscany in a stunning, secluded valley, Villa Chimera sits on a number of stepped medieval terraces, allowing a 200 degree unspoiled view full of truffle oaks, green trees and sweeping hills.

Spacious and romantic, the villa is fitted with all the comforts of home, blending Italian antiques, quirky British touches and modern conveniences. Bedrooms are large, light and beautifully decorated with spectacular views of the valley.

Yoga and meditation takes place in the peaceful shade of the wooden shala or on the infinity yoga deck, overlooking the most dramatic mountainous landscape Tuscany has to offer.

What People say

Russell Whithair

"Michele and Terry are wonderful hosts at their villa, a wonderfully peaceful setting. Michele’s energy, enthusiasm, passion and knowledge tests and expands limits to new levels. Her experience means she has a complete and uncanny understanding of where an individual is - which can be unnerving for a while until you realise through her gentle (and sometime not so gentle) persuasion a weekend or longer spent on a retreat here can be one of the best ways to ensure a greater depth of practice is achieved."

Drew Hobbs

“Michele's uncanny sense of where we are at and what we need to progress with our practice is legendary and to have her close attention amongst a small group for a whole week saw us all make huge steps forward. An enriching, beneficial yoga experience - throw in the sunshine, the swimming pool, the food, the great bunch of people and a few beers of an evening and our week in Tuscany became a truly fantastic holiday.”

Gajan Mahadevan

“There was an excellent balance between guided practices, time to relax and visits to local attractions. It proved to be the perfect way to switch off and recharge. I found the workshop really useful in developing my practice and enjoyed exploring some of the classes I hadn't tried before. The yoga was excellent. It was good to be able to try the full range of FG classes over the course of the retreat and the workshop was really useful in advancing my practice.”

Ella Wroath

“My retreat experience was a fantastic mix of gaining strength and stamina in my practice as well as getting the rest and recuperation I really needed. It was great to try all the different styles of FG, with so many different sequences to learn from. I would recommend to anyone who wanted a retreat that also felt like a holiday, where it was ok to also eat delicious food and have a glass of wine!”

Natalie Sassoon

“Fabulous from beginning to end. Great yoga in a beautiful setting with fab food & lovely fun people. The highlight was practicing yoga in such a stunning location. As a yoga teacher, I chose this retreat based on the form of yoga taught. Michele is a very experienced & fabulous teacher. I would recommend this retreat to anyone who is looking for great Yoga, fab teachers, wonderful food, beautiful secluded place & views & good fun and partying.”
