“Connection with self and nature. Daniela and Giamba have nurtured this property with such intention and it feels as if you step into another world when you arrive. The universe aligned in such an amazing way for me to be able to visit Pundarika and my experience was more than I imagined going in. When I arrived I took a silent hike around the property which probably lasted 45 minutes. The land holds an unbelievable silence that makes space for self reflection and although I didn't use them during my short visit, their forest meditation area and new yoga pavilion are so serene. The pavilion is large enough for a group but also nooked intimately away on the mountainside for someone to have plenty of space for an individual practice. I was able to grab time with Daniela for a Lomi Lomi massage which was incredibly relaxing and the hot tub was hot and ready as soon as I arrived. The views of the mountains during the day and stars at night from the hot tub were perfect. The room was super clean, had a REALLY comfortable bed, and they had everything you would need for some light cooking as well as making coffee and tea in the morning. They happened to be offering a yoga class that I joined in for my second day and I met some other visitors who were there offering individual rebirthing and human design sessions which I was able to partake in. It was an unbelievably profound experience for a weekend and I will no doubt be returning as soon as possible.”
Staying with Daniela & Giambattista was wonderful. The view is amazing and their hospitality was great. It is a lovely place, a good place if you want to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. 🙂 thank for having us! We will definitely recommend it!
This was the perfect place to unwind, connect with nature and do some reflection. The views were absolutely breathtaking. Most of the other apartments were booked during my stay, however because the property is big and has many different areas, I still felt I had my own space. On site there is a beautiful deck in the woods to do some yoga, chairs out on the grass to relax, a room set up to do your own meditation/exercise/yoga, a walking track and a spa. Massages and other treatments are also available on request – I can highly recommend the Lomi Lomi massage by Daniela!! We also had a communal dinner one night with guests and friends, where people from all across the globe could eat, drink and relax together. It was very special. I had the corner room with the grand terrace and it was divine. The walk into town (Riparbella) is an easy 25 minutes and a little longer back (uphill). It's a very safe area to walk. You can also try and coordinate with Daniela, Giambattista or other guests to get a lift, or there is a local bus but it only comes a couple of times a day. When I first arrived I paid for a transfer with Giambattista (from Cecina train station) and bought some groceries to cook for a few days. Daniela and Giambattista were so welcoming and so happy to help with any request. You won't regret spending time at this beautiful place.”
The place is absolutely beautiful! I recommend this if you are coming to relax, take a break from the bullshit, eat some good Italian food! Riparbella is a beautiful village, and just a short walk away from the house. Daniela and Giambattista are a real pleasure to be around.
