The retreat takes place in Le Marche, a stunningly beautiful and very unspoilt part of Italy, often referred to as ‘Italy’s best kept secret’. Situated half way down the peninsular, it is the calf of Italy’s boot, and is bordered by the Adriatic Sea with its miles of golden sands on one side and the mystical Sibillini mountains on the other. In the middle are endless vistas of big rolling hills, almost each one topped with time trapped hill villages, encircled by Medieval walls sheltering narrow cobblestone streets. Penna San Giovanni (nearest village to the retreat) is a perfect example of one of these and in addition to shops and a restaurant/pizzeria has the most exquisite little theatre, like a mini La Scala Milan.
Accommodation and yoga sessions will be at Tre Querce. An Agriturismo is usually a farmhouse (in this case several farmhouses) that have been converted to provide guest accommodation with the majority of the largely organic food and wine produced on the premises.
Rooms include a garden view, and private bathroom with free toiletries. They have simple furnishings with tiled floors and wood-beamed ceilings. There is plenty of outdoor seating spread around the property, two pools with loungers where you can sunbathe, rest and relax. Guests can also enjoy taking long walks through the vineyards and orchards.
Whilst on the retreat we will nourish you with fresh and delicious meals made up of local produce. All vegetables are organic and sourced from the best of what the local and neighbouring towns have to offer. Plentiful, home-cooked menus offering traditional Italian cuisine, vegetarian and vegan options available. All meals include water and wine with juice available at breakfast.
