Yoga & total wellbeing in Puglia, Italy
‘The most beautiful region in the world’ – National Geographic
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. Every person in our team is cherry-picked as much for their loving care and humour as for their 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.
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.
Yoga – packed with wisdom and insight
We teach you the structure of Ashtanga vinyasa yoga as a basis for yoga sequences, taking the time to break each pose down, allowing body and mind to absorb the subtleties of each posture. Each invigorating morning practice brings fresh energy into the organs and muscles, awakening you to a deeply satisfying sense of being alive, whilst the evening practice is nurturing, restorative and meditative.
Our delicious menu will bring pleasure to your taste buds

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.
