La Dolce Vita
8-Days In The Heart of Tuscany, Italy
Join us as we embark on a week long retreat in the heart of Tuscany, Italy. Embrace the unspoilt beauty of the Tuscan countryside as an opportunity to relax and disconnect. We will call an 800-year-old historic estate villa which lies nestled amidst vineyards and olive groves home for this incredible journey. Throughout the week we will enjoy Italian cuisine, restorative and nourishing yoga practices, visit near by cities and welcome the simplicity of "la dolce vita".
La Dolce Vita | The Sweet Life
Arriving into Florence airport or train station our pre-arranged group transport will whisk us off to the Tuscan countryside. After a 90 minute journey we will arrive at our villa for the week.
We will spend the next 2 days settling in at the villa. There will be ample time to explore the 45 acre property and find comfort in the outdoor pool or the many spots throughout the villa and gardens to read a book or enjoy a cappuccino or glass of wine.
We will take our first day trip to San Gimignano, a walled medieval town famous for its architecture and unforgettable skyline lined with tower houses. We will stop at our favourite wine shop in Colle di Val d'Elsa for a private wine, olive oil and balsamic vinegar tasting.
We will have the opportunity to go horseback riding and get a massage on site at the villa.
We will take our next day trip to Siena, a UNESCO world heritage site famous for its art, cuisine, museums and cathedrals. You may spend your day visiting the sites, shopping at the many stores surrounding the centre or simply sit in the piazza and spend your day people watching.
For our final night at the villa we will celebrate with a farewell pizza party in the garden where our pizzas will be baked in a century old wood-fire pizza oven.
After our final night at the villa we will have our final yoga practice and meal before traveling back to Florence train station or airport for onward travel. You are welcome (and encouraged) to spend a few additional days exploring Florence or travelling onward to other destinations within Italy such as Venice, Milan or Rome.
