Local Area Info

Puglia, a southern region forming the heel of Italy’s boot, is known for its whitewashed hill towns, centuries-old farmland and hundreds of kilometres of Mediterranean coastline.

Kaliyoga Italy is located in the stunning Itria Valley, one hour South of Bari, in the garden province of Puglia – voted for three years by National Geographic as the most beautiful place in the world.

The Masseria Pavone is a farmhouse that dates back to the sixteenth century with either single, shared or double accommodation in lovingly restored ‘Trulli’ protected by UNESCO as heritage sights.

This place is so breathtakingly beautiful it has to be seen to be believed.


These are some of the optional activities that we offer in Puglia, subject to seasonal availability. Guided activities require a minimum number of participants.

Cycle Tour in the Parco Dune Costiere

Enjoy a gentle bike ride through the coastal dunes natural park near the Adriatic coast. On this tour, you will visit several “masseria” (typical local farms) each of which specialises in a different local produce. Your guide will explain the distinctive histories, architecture and the specific function and purpose of each Puglian farmhouse.

As you cycle through this stunning nature reserve you will stop for a tour of a Masseria that specialises in olive oil production and visit a cheese-making farmhouse where you will have the opportunity to buy local fresh cheeses. There will be a stop en route for rest, toilets and refreshments.

Walking and Cycling in the Itria Valley

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.

Visit The Beach

In the hot summer, weeks spend your Wednesday afternoon relaxing on the beach. Yoga in Sanskrit means to ‘yoke’, to yoke together or to bring into union the body, breath, and mind in the present moment… so continue your retreat experience with a few hours perfecting wholeness under the warm Puglian sun!
