Prominently situated on a ridge which stretches into the centre of the valley, our beautiful yoga retreat in Italy commands fine views over its 28 hectares of gardens, terraced lawns and woodland. Stroll at leisure through the olive grove, inhale the scent of roses and herbs, or simply curl up with a book under the shade of the old elm tree. The gardens hold many hidden gems and secret corners for you to discover. In one, an ecological chlorine-free swimming pool, encircled by comfortable sun loungers and close by the sybaritic delight of an outdoor Jacuzzi whirlpool spa. Or descend a few steps and enter the small Moorish style spa, let your tensions slip away in the Turkish bath and then immerse yourself in a cloud of cool, refreshing, mint-scented water, before heading for the peace of the salon overlooking the verdant landscape to sip a tisane, or read a book, or revive yourself under the hands of one of the property's massage therapists.
All 10 rooms all with private bathrooms, each equally fresh and silent, each different from one another. The furnishings adorning every room were all hand-picked and brought back one by one from many distant journeys made by Paola and Irish, the owners of our Italian sanctuary. There is no television, nothing to disturb the peace and tranquillity.
During your stay, dine on healthy and organic cuisine inspired by the flavors of the local region -- organic tomatoes, salad leaves and vegetables from the kitchen garden. Olive oil from the olive grove, aromatic herbs from the garden, yogurt, cakes and home-made breads. In the finest traditions of Mediterranean cuisine everything is natural, everything is genuine.
