On the face of it, Villa Lena might be easy enough to overlook — what’s another villa hotel in Tuscany, a region that’s not exactly facing a dire shortage of them? The difference, as in so many areas of creative life, lies in just how seriously Villa Lena’s proprietors take their task. This isn’t just a beautifully preserved villa, serving fine wine and fine food — though it’s certainly that. It’s also a full-on agriturismo, where dogs forage for white truffles, and something of an artist’s colony, where writers, musicians, designers, and artists of all stripes congregate under the umbrella of the villa’s non-profit arts foundation.

Safe to say that if you’re just looking for a place to lay your head, you have no idea what’s waiting for you. The villa itself actually houses the foundation, the events spaces, and the farm-to-table restaurant, while the apartments occupy a number of outlying buildings, for a bit more privacy and a village-like atmosphere. They’re stylish, partly minimalist, partly traditional, and perfectly comfortable, in their low-key residential way.

Needless to say, the living here is easy, and the food is nothing short of extraordinary. The chefs are on hand to share their expertise, and the same goes for your other creative neighbors, who might just be the key to Villa Lena’s appeal — the visiting artists give talks, exhibit work, give studio tours, and generally sing for their supper in lieu of paying a nightly rate. And the ultimate beneficiary, it turns out, is you.
