La dolce vita

Unlike a normal holiday that disappers as quickly as your tan, our retreat holiday in Puglia provides a range of activities that are designed to give you back good health and an authentic sense of wellbeing that can be life-changing. Our yoga teachers, our therapy team and out cutting-edge plant-based cooks are cherry-picked for their humour and open hearts, as much as for their professional expertise. There are hands on workshops in the kitchen and cultural activities too, like cycling, walking and beach trips. And of course sunbathing and chilling out by the pool.

 

Staying longer

Our weekly retreats start on a Sunday and end the following Saturday, but sometimes it’s good to book consecutive weeks for a deeper experience. If you choose to stay for two or more weeks, you’ll check out on the Saturday between retreats as we close for rest and cleaning between Saturday 11am – Sunday 2pm. If you would like us to arrange your Saturday night’s accommodation in a preferred local hotel or b&b, please let us know when you book your retreat.

Our menu varies according to the season – for example in summer we lean more towards raw salads, grains and superfoods, then when the days are shorter we choose hearty dishes for warmth. You will be amazed and inspired by the quality and variation of the plentiful meals. We source all our seasonal ingredients from local farmers who deliver to us in person.

Heavenly Food

Our delicious menu will bring pleasure to your taste buds

Therapeutic Treatments

World-class therapists to give you healing, understanding and stress-relief

During your stay, you may like to try some natural health treatments. Our exceptionally gifted massage and therapy team is available every day for a wonderfully nurturing experience that would be hard to beat anywhere in the world. If you want some help in choosing which therapies to book, we offer some guidance, though the choice will be yours.

Yoga – packed with powerful wisdom and humour

Tashi Dawa teaches the structure of Ashtanga Vinyasa as a basis for yoga sequences, taking the time to break each pose down, allowing the body and mind to fully integrate the subtleties of each posture. This teaching method helps you to relate deeply to the nature of cause and effect in your body, mind, and breath. This brings fresh energy into the organs and muscles and awakens you into a deeply satisfying awareness of being.

“Excellent yoga, accessible, satisfying, challenging but not threatening. Reinvigorated my interest in yoga, a renewed sense that life is beautiful. Food too divine!!”

Rooms and property details

Our 17th century Masseria main house and a cluster of Trullo apartments provide a range of accommodation with twin and double beds. Unique to this region, a Trullo is an iconic circular stone cottage with a pointy roof. The property is located in 4 hectares of private land with a walled swimming pool, seasonal hot tub, lavender garden and our octagonal yoga studio. Decorated with a blend of classical and modern comforts, our retreat property has a sensual appeal and visual charm. Domesticated farm cats live outdoors but are fond of a cuddle, as do two splendid farm dogs and a rare-breed donkey.

Local Area Info

We are situated in the Itria Valley, one of the most striking landscapes of Puglia. This landscape is bright and elemental with endless dry-stone walls, neat vineyards, and ancient olive trees spiraling up from dark red soil and punctuated by the distinctive cone-shaped roofs of the trullo houses. In your free time, you can walk or cycle across this gently rolling countryside towards local towns Martina Franca (3 km) or Locorotondo (4 km). Take some time to explore these two beautiful Baroque towns, visit the shops, wander through the weekly market or just stop and relax with a coffee or ice cream.
