Villa Lena sits in the Tuscan hills on over 500 hectares of woodland and is a unique destination, encompassing both a hotel and artist residency space. The Villa itself sits in the center and was built in the 18th century by the local family Ferrini Del Frate. For the artist residency, multidisciplinary creative talent can work for up to two months, while renovated apartments and houses on the property can be rented out for shorter holiday stays. The rooms and common areas feature vintage items and recycled furniture, as well as artworks produced in the artist’s village by past residents. Villa Lena’s founders Lena Evstafieva, Jerome Hadey and Lionel Bensemoun wanted to combine all of their experiences in one place, bringing together music, art, entertainment, film, fashion and other creative fields into the one-of-a-kind retreat with a communal vibe.
