Testimonials for Surya Chandra Das

I just returned from a yoga retreat held at this blissful location. Elena, her family, and staff were gracious hosts and excellent chefs. The home is surrounded by the lush, Tuscan hills. The ancient structure has been beautifully restored and updated. A beautiful yoga studio, olive trees, a giant vegetable garden, horses, and a small family of donkeys, and a sweet little fox were just a few of the on-site attractions. We were fed marvelous h’orderves and family-made wine as we sat by a roaring fire. Dinners were multi-course feasts.” Prior participant at Le Pianore
