Eat. Pray. Love…. And, Live Well

[Re]Discover this magical land, and re-connect to living La Dolce Vita

Explore the amazing landscapes and cultural heritage this autumn in Tuscany!  A place where it is customary in the fall season to connect with nature – in the woods, foraging and harvesting. This wellness experience will allow you to detox from the stress of daily life by reconnecting to yourself through mindfulness, movement and nourishing practices, which are intertwined with living the simple life – La Dolce Vita!  Uncover how the locals live off the land, and learn their deep rooted customs in wine, food, nature and simply living well!

 

Our 2019 Wellness Immersive Travel Experience has been curated to explore, and uncover the rich lands of Tuscany your way!

We’ve redesigned our offering to make this trip the experience for YOU, by creating two options to satisfy and align with your wallet, intentions and desires.

OPTION 1: The Retreat

Situated on a vast piece of land – encompassed by rolling hills, vineyards, groves, woodlands, an organic farm – and a river running through it all, we will be staying at Agriturismo Le Pianore.

 

The villas are immersed within a 50 ha estate with no immediate neighbours – allowing for total privacy. The gardens are a playground for adults and children alike: lime, oak and cherry trees provide shade, while lavender and thyme, roses, jasmine and broom perfume and enliven the landscape. Dip into our swimming pool for respite from the midday heat and enjoy lounging on the deck chairs until sunset, watching the sky turn red and feeling the cool evening air descend.

 

 

 

      

 

The retreat is a great option for those looking to find reprieve from their bustling lives, re-connect back to themselves, while being surrounded by nature at its finest, enjoying good food, great culture and people.

 

The Retreat includes:

  • 2 Daily Yoga/Meditation Sessions to support releasing toxins and balancing your hormones
  • 3 Wellness Workshops (2hrs each) – The Stress Detox Unlocked (diving deeper into how the practice of yoga, mindfulness and ayurveda can undo stress patterns in the body and mind, while providing detailed techniques to support living well – daily)
  • Breakfast & Dinner (all from the organic farm at Le Pianore)
  • Hiking through the vast property
  • Guided farm tour at Le Pianore
