Located on a restored 13th century farm, nestled inside an evergreen forest and overlooking the rolling Tuscan Hills, you will embrace Italy’s oldest traditions. Your ultimate escape to restore balance, where yoga meets culture and history and just minutes away from the medieval walled town of Monteriggioni.
Ebbio Estate is within easy reach of nearby cities, including Siena (10km) and Florence (45km), yet offer seclusion & serenity, surrounded by nature. With a spacious indoor yoga shala, outdoor patio, and nine uniquely designed rooms with earthly colours and windows to enjoy the scenery of Tuscany. There are plenty of zen spaces to relax and unwind with hammocks on site, whether its sunbathing, reading or star-gazing, you will feel completely immersed.
Just like yoga, a good meal nourishes all the senses and brings people together. The villa dedicates itself to the organic cultivation olive trees, vineyards, fruit, vegetables and herbs, which are used to prepare farm to table meals daily. Meals will be served at large communal tables, with farm to table produce in the outdoor patio. Ebbio uses fresh, locally sourced ingredients, primarily grown on site, which is certified organic. The ultimate farm to table retreat. Their mantra is ‘food is medicine’, and their meals complement what’s in season at their farm.
A typical day on retreat will begin with a 2hr practice, vinyasa or a workshop style class & evenings will wind down with a restorative or yin practice. Between classes you will have ample free time so you can explore and rest at your leisure. We have planned some very special experiences including wine tastings at a local vineyard, taste local flavours with an onsite cooking class & enjoy a conscious feast with our live music & bon-fire night. Tuscany is famous for its culture and history. There is much to explore close by, including hot springs, local villages and many more vineyards to explore. This retreat will be a cultural immersion in everything the area has to offer.
The magical location offers seclusion and wanderlust surrounded by rolling hills and provides a true sanctuary in which to escape the pressures of busy life and explore the sights and sounds of this beautiful country. Together, we will unwind, reconnect, and “retreat” ourselves. We love yoga, we love to travel, and creating magic that happens only on a retreat!
