Self-Guided Retreats

Self-guided retreats are available all-year round at Tuscan Healing Retreat.

It's perfect for you if you are in need of solitude, but you do not want to be in complete isolation.

I will be your host and companion during your stay, and your package includes two sessions with Kelley Thorrington, our resident life coach and spiritual counsellor.

A self-guided retreat runs for 5 nights/6 days.

You will arrive on Tuesday and depart on Sunday.

If you feel that you would like a longer retreat you can discuss this with me when you make your initial enquiry.




The rate for a standard self-guided retreat is $1380-00/£1120-00/€1250


This includes:


  • Transport to and from Pistoia Train Station

  • 5 nights’ accommodation at Il Poste del Cuore

  • Double room with heavenly views and private bathroom

  • Breakfast (see below for other meals *)

  • 1 x Massage treatment with Daniela

  • 2 x Coaching sessions via Skype with Kelley (or in person if she is here).

  • An excursion of your choice accompanied by Daniela (Montecatini Terme, Lucca, Vinci or Florence)


I have tried to make things easy for you so that you do not have to hire a car as the buses near my home are not frequent, and the nearest supermarket is a 10-minute drive away. That's why I have included collection to and from the station, an excursion and daily trips into Quarrata if you need supplies. Any additional trips will be charged for (see below).

My retreat guests do not find it necessary to have a car, but everyone is different.

If you wish to be more independent, you may prefer to hire a car at the airport.

*  I will provide you with complimentary lunch and dinner every day.

    We will discuss your food preferences upon booking.




  • Transport to and from Pistoia Train Station (10 euros per one-way trip)

  • Laundry @ 5 euros per load

  • Various creative activities with local artists 


Terms and Conditions


We require a 50% non-refundable deposit at the time of booking, and the balance is due two weeks before you arrive. You can also choose to pay the total in three installments over three months before your start date.



If you have to cancel for any reason we may be able to move your date so that you will not lose your deposit, but only if you cancel a minimum of 6 weeks before your start date. We have to be strict about this as there is often a waiting list for retreats and we do not want to disrupt other bookings, but we do understand that life happens.
