A few years ago Little Forest Folk's founders Leanna and James took a family trip to the wonderful Villa Pia in Italy. Following a great family holiday they hatched the idea to begin a yearly family holiday, Little Forest Folk style! Unfortunately our trips were put on hold for the last two years due to the pandemic but we are so excited have returned to Tuscany in 2023.

We have partnered with Villa Pia, a gorgeous family-friendly, rambling farmhouse, with incredibly delicious food, a range of relaxing & exciting activities, and 5 acres of beautiful grounds to explore. Located in the Medieval town of Lippiano and set against the breath-taking back drop of Tuscany, this 15th century country Manor House is a spectacular destination with little ones.

Our Little Forest Folk Holiday is the perfect break for both parents and children, along with other likeminded families. A team of our fabulous Educators join families for a week to offer the children a Little Forest Folk Tuscan adventure each morning (which means parents can have a lie in!). The holiday is all inclusive, with families organising their own flight bookings separately.

推荐from Little Forest Folk Tuscany Holidays


It felt like an opportunity for a genuine relaxing, fun and engaging week. A rare commodity when you have children. For each of us to find time to chat to others people, have fun, laughter, relaxation, peace & quiet, was amazing. The Forest Folk sessions along with the way we were looked after from the staff at Villa Pia was effortless and enabled everyone to relax and unwind.


What a wonderful week! It’s a beautiful spot and it was such a pleasure to share it with lovely Forest Folk families.

我们很惊讶有多少美丽的山顶城镇there were nearby (in particular Anghiari) which were ideal for short morning or afternoon trips out. Many were pedestrianised which made exploring easier with the children. The Italians were all very child-friendly. Happy children, happy parents etc. We have eaten our body weight in ice cream and pasta.

It was an ideal balance of adult time and family time each day. Plenty of space so it didn’t feel crowded. We felt lucky with the group of families as everyone seemed to get on well. Educators were excellent, engaged and fun.

I cannot possibly speak highly enough of your staff - they had a group of children of various ages, abilities and interest and all children absolutely loved it! They are such a credit and asset to your organisation - they absolutely made the holiday what it was. We really liked the beautiful location and were so happy relaxing, reading and swimming that we didn’t even mind when a lightning storm took out the WiFi. The Villa staff were very kind and loved the children as well. What a great setting. We started a what’s app group with all the other families who stayed at the same time as us and we’ve really enjoyed staying in touch with them as well. We have already discussed coming back again next year.

我真的想表达这多少s experience was such a great starting point for us with our Little Forest Folk journey since our son, H started at Wimbledon a few days after our return. It confirms for us that joining the forest school was one of the best decisions we’ve made for our children.

We both thoroughly enjoyed the trip and it far exceeded my expectations; the location was beautiful, the setup and staff at Villa Pia was perfect for families, the Little Forest Folk educators were amazing. I returned refreshed - a true treat as a single Mum, and my daughter returned full of confidence with a fascination for sticks and small creatures. Please pass on my immense thanks to the educations.
