Surrounded by a beautiful Mediterranean forest, the Casale Pundarika is a Tuscan farmhouse turned into a holiday home and a center for courses and retreats. Recently renovated, it is located in a magical place two kilometers from the village of Riparbella (PISA) on the Maritime Hills a few kilometers from the Etruscan Coast.
The Casale Pundarika is a place of peacefulness, quietness and contemplation, ideal for those who want to leave behind the stress, the bustle and the noise of our daily life and surrender to the sounds of nature. It was formerly a Buddhist center and was chosen precisely due to the particular quality of the surrounding silence and the purity of the air, which made it an ideal place for meditation.
The house is in a secluded position ensuring maximum privacy and tranquility for our guests. However, the village of Riparbella is only minutes away by car or even on foot. Guests have access to a hot tub, the forest and its trails, a magical stream nearby, a large terrace / solarium with 200 square meters of lawn, hammocks and deck chairs.
It has 7 independent apartments and two multifunction rooms for meditation, yoga or other activities. It is ideal to spend a holiday immersed in the silence and nature. It can be rented by apartment or entirely for courses or group events.
Nearby, the Etruscan Coast on the Tyrrhenian Sea offers many types of beaches, sandy, rocky, Family, Dog, naturist and are all easily accessible from the house.
