Silence is a source of great strength ~ Lao Tzu

Retreat to Italy with the intention to nurture your practices in yoga, meditation, pranayama, relaxation, appreciation of good food, wine, outdoor exercise and exquisite ancient landscapes. Relax, Restore, Reset in the beautiful countryside.

Enjoy the luxurious villa accommodation set on a ridge, which stretches into the center of the valley of rose and herb gardens, olive groves and woodlands. Relax in the salt-water swimming pool, jacuzzi spa, steam room, and massage. Chef will spoil you with healthy and organic Italian cuisine and local wines.
