This autumnal retreat has been designed to allow you to deeply re-tune your inner rhythm from summer to winter. We will align ourselves with nature and shift into a path of less resistance and quietness. This is a retreat of unwinding, grounding, steadiness and self-love.
With average temperatures in Tuscany in October ranging from from 11°C - 22°C , we can comfortable do our movement practices inside and outside! The pools are heated and everything is beautiful curated for you to relax. Nestled in the rolling Tuscan hills and surrounded by 500 hectares of woodland, vineyards, olive groves and organic vegetable gardens, sits our beautiful, 19th century neo-Renaissance home for the week.
Our award winning and mindfully designed home cultivates both nature and culture, allowing you to immerse yourself into thoughtful and laidback living. The villa was originally built for an Italian aristocratic family, with converted historic agricultural buildings - former farmhouses, stables and hunting lodges surrounding the house. Tuscany is best known for its dreamy landscapes; populated by golden vineyards that produce its rich red Chianti wines, its sumptuous food like truffles, pasta and olive oil, as well as its strong influence on high culture, with it widely being regarded as the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance and artistic legends like world-famous Leonardo da Vinci.
When not in downward dog, sitting quietly in meditation or hovering in the one-hundred, guests can spend their days exploring the woodlands; including truffle hunting(!), make fresh pasta in the huge kitchen and socialise over cocktails in the bars, or simply relax with a book in the many living rooms. The villa is vast making alone time as accommodating as collective time. We will practice yoga and pilates indoors in the designated studio, as well as outside in nature on the yoga deck.
Every room has a touch of luxury with vaulted high-beamed ceilings, beautiful oak flooring,
marble bathrooms with rainfall showers, bathtub and underfloor heating. With unrivalled views across the Tuscan hills, you wake up to peaceful views every morning. Your room is in the same building as our indoor yoga studio and a short stroll to the main pool, making easy living even easier. "La dolce vita" meaning "the good life" is one of physical pleasures and self-indulgence. And we shall do just that with our retreat wellness. You can choose to do absolutely nothing, everything or a bit in-between.
