During this holiday, you will be staying at Floripa Yoga & Kitesurf House. The Floripa team believes in living a healthy life in harmony with nature and the rhythm of the sea. This ethos is reflected in our individually designed rooms, our fruit tree-filled gardens, organic meals made with homegrown ingredients, and service that comes straight from the heart.

Floripa is run by Ettore, who runs the watersports school as well, with the help of a team who are like a family. Floripa wouldn’t be what it is without all of the staff, past, and present.

Many guests have become part of the Floripa family so the team loves welcoming them back every season. Many guests say they enjoy the atmosphere of the place and Floripa thinks their repeat guests are a big part of this.

You have no need to worry if you are a solo traveler coming alone. Many guests come by themselves but with the shared rooms and communal meals, it’s easy to meet other guests – not forgetting Floripa's loyal pets who will be delighted to meet you, too.

The bed and breakfast is located 30 meters away from the sandy dune beach of Santa Maria del Focallo. The stunning beach is 15 kilometers long and holds Blue Flag status for the cleanliness of its waters. It is the ideal place to relax and reconnect with the elements.

The bed and breakfast is composed of three large houses all surrounded by lush gardens. Within these, you will find private rooms, shared rooms for two to five persons, or suite rooms with private verandas.

The rooms have been designed for your comfort and relaxation with modern simplicity and color in mind. With hot and cold air conditioning, TV, refrigerator, private bathroom, and Wi-Fi, you will have all the benefits of a hotel with the warmth and freedom that only a bed and breakfast can provide. In the common areas, you’ll find sofas, hammocks, and bean bags to relax in the garden, tea and coffee facilities, games, and a library of books you can borrow.

The shared rooms can host 4 or 5 persons, with a shared en-suite bathroom. There is an extra bathroom on the ground floor that guests can use, and our beloved outdoor showers, gorgeous for a cool down under the hot Sicilian sun.

The shared rooms are the perfect choice if you are traveling on a tight budget and enjoy sharing space with like-minded people who share the same passion for the yoga and surf lifestyle. If you know that you snore or are a light sleeper, Floripa recommends a private room.


A team of experienced yoga instructors will guide you to take your asana practice to the next level with 90 minutes of Vinyasa Flow classes in the morning, optional workshops in the afternoon (on arm-balancing, inversions, handstand, backbends, basic of alignment) followed by lunar flows that are sometimes taught at the forest near the center, or at the beach (this depends on the weather). Depending on the size of the classes, on occasion 2 morning classes are offered at the same time, so you can choose between: a longer (sometimes over 2 hrs) level 2 Vinyasa Flow; and a shorter (90 minutes) entry-level Hatha flow class.

At Floripa Yoga & Kitesurf House it is possible to practice different water sports: kite-surf (from spring to autumn), SUP (especially in the summertime), and surf (especially in April and October). All the water sports are conditioned to the wind conditions, so generally on a good kite-surfing day, it will not be possible to practice SUP since the sea will be too choppy (and vice versa, on a good SUP day, there is not enough wind for kite-surfing!). Also please notice that in the Mediterranean sea there are no reef breaks, so the conditions for surfing are not constant, but are highly depending on the tides.

General daily schedule

  • 08:00 - 09:00 Morning Flow yoga class. This is the yoga class included in your package!
  • 09:00 - 10:00 Breakfast (breakfast is served between 07:30 - 10:00)
  • 09:00 - 11:00 Optional intermediate / advanced level class yoga class (offered usually every other day depending on the number of practitioners). When this class is offered, you will be informed and can choose to take the 07:30 one or the 09:00 one. During our teacher training programs this class will be a 3-hour long masterclass with limited spots, if you wish to join you can book it for an extra cost of 5 EUR.
  • 07:30 - 08:30 SUP Yoga (during summer months only). This class depends on weather conditions, with minimum participant 6 people. If you wish to take SUP Class instead of the regular 08:00 class, you only need to pay 5 EUR extra.
  • 12:30 - 15:00 Lunch and free time
  • 17:30 - 19:30 Evening class. Yin yoga, Restorative, or Yang and Yin.
  • 20:00 - 21:30 Dinner

Optional workshops

Workshops are open for yogis who want to take their practice to the next level, they are optional and hence they are not included in the retreat price. If you wish to join, price is usually 15 EUR to 20 EUR.

Please kindly note that some variations might occur on the schedule listed above, and that the offer of workshops can vary depending also on the travels scheduled by the led teacher Ameriga. If you have any special request regarding yoga please communicate it in your emails and the teachers will try to make you happy!

Once you sign up for this yoga holiday, you will receive a welcome email with some information, and a list of recommended further readings in case you want to know more about the practice of yoga (they are by no means compulsory to read).


Are children welcome?

Floripa Yoga & Kitesurf House tries to create a climate where guests can feel part of a group that share common interests and passions. If you are a like-minded family then you are really welcomed at Floripa Yoga & Kitesurf House!

What’s the average age of the guests at Floripa?

The average age of Floripa Yoga & Kitesurf House's guests depends on the time of the year, but in general, it ranges around 30-45 years old, though they often have younger and older people coming over. Floripa is impressed by how easy it is for guests to find common grounds for conversations and spending the time together, everybody is very easygoing.

I am a solo traveler, will it be easy to meet people?

Yes! It will be extremely easy! Most of the guests come around on their own, and even the staff members (and dogs) are super friendly, so you will not feel lonely!

Are water sports compulsory?

Not at all! Some of the guests just enjoy the yoga classes and relaxing at the beach, or vising some of the stunning UNESCO sights nearby.

What about kitesurf? Is it a sport for everyone?

Kitesurf is a water sport that uses the strength of the wind. The spot is quite easy, a long and free beach with flat water; in addition, the wind is normally siding onshore, so perfect to learn! Everybody can try it, as you don’t need previous specific preparation. If you just want to give it a try, we recommend to do two hours and see how it goes (price is 60 EUR euros per hour). If you are committed to learn it, you can attend a beginner course (from 6 to 9 hours) at the school, or just rent the equipment if you are already able to ride the wind!

Price list: one-hour semi private kite class (from 2 to 4 persons): 60 EUR, one-hour private kite class: 70 EUR, full equipment rental: 80 EUR + 10 EUR wetsuit.

Do I need to bring my yoga mat?

No, you can leave your mats at home! Floripa's shalas provide all you need to attend the yoga class! Blocks, yoga mats, pillows and so on.

I’m a beginner at yoga / I am advanced / I am pregnant, will I be able to enjoy the classes?

In the morning Floripa team generally teaches a dynamic style of flow yoga- it can be Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Prana flow; all levels are welcomed since the teachers give variations according to everybody's capacities. In the afternoon session, they usually teach Yin yoga or a gentle flow, these classes are slower and deep, and are usually followed by a meditation session. Sometimes they do the afternoon classes at the beach or in the little forest close to the B&B. If you are pregnant, or you have a special condition, you will be able for sure to follow the afternoon classes, while you might need to slow down and pause during the morning classes.

Do I need to bring cash?

Yes. All water sports, massages, and transfers need to be paid by cash. Also, Floripa recommends bringing some cash for expenses outside of the B&B, as in Sicily most places only accept cash.

If you want to get out of the town and reach for bigger centers, Pozzallo is only five kilometers away and there you can find all sorts of amenities and services. Ispica is another beautiful ancient town that is strongly suggested you visit to get a glimpse of real Sicily.

Gluten-free alternatives can be arranged if requested. A vegetarian or vegan welcome dinner is also included in the price of the retreat.

Lunches and all other dinners are not included in the package price, to give you the opportunity to explore local cuisine and eat out if you wish. However, at Floripa, it is possible to eat together with the team and the other guests almost every night (the price is usually 15 EUR which includes water and Sicilian wine). Dinners are always vegetarian or vegan, generally presented as a healthy buffet of locally produced organic food. Gluten-free can be catered for. Wine will be served at dinner time.

If there are meals that are not included in your package, then you can “pay as you go” (price ranges from 6 to 18 EUR). There are also some restaurants around 1 km away, which can be reached by bike (we provide free bicycles). Finally, there are two common kitchens that can be used to cook your own meals. The closest supermarket is located 3 km away (5 minutes by bike), and bigger supermarkets are located in Pozzallo (7 km away).

The meals are mostly vegetarian, however, at breakfast, you will find ham and eggs. The venue doesn’t serve fish, and it serves meat usually once a week on Saturday during a barbecue. However, there are always vegetarian options also on barbecue nights.

Breakfasts and dinners are buffet style, so you will find dishes that you can eat most of the time. When you sign up for meals just write a remark with your eating style / special dietary requirements and the cook will make sure to have something for you.
