FREE TIME & YOGA AT OUR VILLA
In addition to yoga practice and our planned food and wine experiences, you'll have one entirely free day to relax at our beautiful villa, surrounded by gardens, stone terraces and quiet places to reflect. The villa features a swimming pool (heated if needed), located in a quiet and secluded position. The pool area has lounge chairs, large umbrellas, tables and chairs, an outdoor heated shower and a toilet in the underground pool house. A large pergola provides shade, and there is a fridge to keep drinks cool, with a storage cupboard for glasses.
The beautifully landscaped gardens of the estate are planted with young olive trees, umbrella pines, cypress trees, lavender, rosemary, and other herbs. Flower-filled terracotta pots around the church begin to bloom in the spring. Guests can enjoy an aperitif on one of the outdoor terraces or dining areas. A pond with a fountain and a nearby, shady area are ideal places to sit and contemplate, read or just simply be.
There are also mapped walking trails that meander through nature and allow guests to admire the different views of what is one of Italy’s most beautiful valleys. The trails vary in length and range from leisurely strolls through the olive groves and vineyards, to more demanding walks up and down hills. Guided walks of the nearby area can be arranged and packed lunches are available on request.
