The space

Dating back to the 1500s, Rifugio Delle Poiane is a historic country house with exposed stone walls and a quiet rural setting. Just outside Riparbella, it is surrounded by 13 hectares of fields and forest.
Set in the Tuscan countryside, Rifugio Delle Poiane has been completely refurbished using natural materials and bio architectural methods. The owner lives on the property.
Rooms are colourful and individually decorated. They have original features such as stone floors and wood-beamed ceilings. They are heated by a gas or wooden stove.
Parking is free and the beach at Marina di Cecina is 20 minutes' drive away. Venturina thermal spa is 25 minutes away by car. Pisa, Siena, and Florence can also be reached in less than 1 hour.

How to arrive

We are 30 minutes from Cecina railway station.

If you enjoy nature, tranquility and a warm and familiar athmosphere, Eleonora's lovely home is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing holiday in the middle of nowhere. Eleonora is a very kind and inspiring person, and one could not wish for a better host! We had the most wonderful time at the Refugio and I am already looking forward to coming back next year! Grazie Mille!

Per quanto breve il soggiorno al Rifugio delle Poiane è stato notevole; la posizione è fantastica, il panorama e la bellezza del casolare ripagano a pieno il chilometro e mezzo di sterrato necessario per raggiungere l'alloggio dall'atmosfera bucolica e rilassante. Eleonora è disponibile ed estremamente alla mano. Da rifare

Il Rifugio delle Poiane è un rudere romantico, che parla della pace di un posto senza tempo, dove è facile dimenticare di guardare l’orologio, per ispirarsi a contemplare le bellezze della natura.

Dopo aver attraversato un bosco di sugheri e lecci, si apre improvvisamente una vallata ventosa dalla quale si scorge il mare. Il Rifugio delle Poiane è un’antica casa contadina in pietra viva, completamente ristrutturata secondo le linee della bio-architettura.

Il focolare della casa diffonde nell’aria desiderio di riflessione, guarigione, ringiovanimento e trasformazione.
Un ritiro in un angolo di terra che richiama al raccoglimento e favorisce l’equilibrio psico-fisico, nel rispetto dei ritmi della natura, per un momento di incontro con sé stessi. Dormire e svegliarsi sotto le stelle, nel buio e nella luce, in una dimensione magica al confine tra sogno e realtà, in un’armonia universale...
