Groups & ‘Exclusive Bathroom’ Bookings

Writers and Artists Retreat in Tuscany, Italy
Being ‘on retreat’ does not preclude socialising!

Group Bookings

We recognise that although a ‘retreat’ primarily offers the opportunity for each individual to focus on their own particular project, guests might also wish to socialise with others whom they know while not actively engaged on their project (i.e., not taking ‘pot luck’ on which other guests might be staying at Casale di Clio at the same time). We therefore offer a special deal if the three rooms are all booked by a group for a stay for the same week/period – allowing you to arrange to have guests that you know staying at the same time as yourself: the ‘three rooms for the price of two’ offer is this: book all three rooms for a week or more and room Leonardo is effectively ‘free’ – i.e., the price of the booking is the total of the rates for rooms Dante and Hildegard for the booking period. In light of the fact that room Leonardo is usually charged at a lower rate than the other two rooms, it is for the guests to decide how the discount is shared between them (e.g., applied pro-rata for each room/guest – or otherwise).

In the case of group bookings one primary guest will be contractually responsible for the booking, and must provide details of additional guests at the time of booking.

We see this as a win-win scenario: we ensure that we receive two rooms’ income for a particular week; guests ensure that they will have company whom they know to socialise with when not focusing on their ‘retreat aims’/project.

‘Exclusive Bathroom’ Bookings

We recognise that not everybody is happy to share bathroom facilities with other guests – we therefore offer the option of booking one of the two main guest rooms and paying a 100 Euro (per week) supplement to ensure that none of the other guest rooms are let for that week.


NB: the hosts will still be present in their private apartment in the building complex, and will retain a right of access to property during these Bookings; i.e., this deal DOES NOT amount to exclusive rental of the whole of Casale di Clio; this is not accommodation suitable for a week of boisterous partying, and guests who mistreat the property and its contents – or who cause a noise or other nuisance to the hosts or their neighbours – will be asked to leave, forfeiting any rental feed paid.

The library is well equipped with books, games and more

Which Groups?

We envisage that this offer would be available to members of Reading/Writing/Art/Photography/Hiking/History/Music groups – though if you have another group in mind then do contact us to discuss the possibility of staying.
