La Rosa dei 4 Venti is not a hotel; it’s a unique, comfortable, family-run specialist destination that specializes in yoga holidays. This 15-hectare property is situated on a small hillock in the heart of the Itria Valley in the heel of Italy’s boot (nearest international airport is Brindisi). Each room is unique, full of character and comes with an en suite with shower, toilet and basin. Rooms are furnished to reflect the building and the area, creating a relaxed, calming and laidback atmosphere.

The masseria comfortably accommodates 10 students and close by there are another five rooms in the trulli houses. These small, white conical buildings are one of the most magical aspects of the Puglian landscape.

Freedom and simplicity are at the heart of this yoga retreat. The landscape is scenic and rural and is dotted with beautiful olive trees and vineyards, divided by pretty dry-stone walls. Between the lovely gardens, swimming pool, wild forest and fields, and tiny church, there is plenty of space to explore, walk and be free.

Check-in at the yoga centre is at 17.30 (p.m.) and check-out on the last day will be at 10.00 a.m. On the day of arrival, if on either of the recommended flights, your bags will be taken to La Rosa and the group will have lunch in the local town, where both groups will meet before being taken to La Rosa for the 17.30 check in time.

Room amenities

  • Hairdryers are provided in each of the rooms.
  • If you are bringing any electrical equipment, the adaptor plug required is the European 2-pin.
  • Guests will be provided with one pool towel during their stay. It is possible to change these for a small fee payable directly to the venue.

Program

The yoga Studio at La Rosa is a beautifully converted 18th century barn situated in a peaceful part of the property. The hard wood floor and traditional stone, arched, white walls are designed to keep the room cool during the warm months as well offering space for guests to move through sequences uninterrupted.

During the retreats all equipment is provided so there is no need to bring your own.

The schedule may change slightly from week to week but to give you an idea of a day on retreat, the example schedule is below. You will also have one afternoon off mid-week so you can book any excursions or massages you’d like to enjoy.

Retreat location

This holiday takes place in Puglia, Italy. The chosen venue, La Rosa Dei 4 Venti, is situated on a small hillock in the heart of the Itria Valley in the heel of Italy’s boot. Nearby there is a choice of beaches, as well as local historic towns to visit and the venue can arrange transport to visit these during the week. Please note La Rosa Dei 4 Venti is a yoga ashram, not a boutique hotel and therefore there is not a full hotel service.

La Rosa dei 4 Venti (formerly known as Santa Maria del Sole) is a charming, family run yoga retreat set in an elegantly restored 16th century masseria (a traditional farmhouse found in the Puglia region). Staying true to the old Apulian style, many of the authentic features of the farm are still in place and provide an idyllic backdrop for this yoga holiday. %The retreat has both an indoor yoga studio and an outdoor yoga platform, meaning guests can relax while enjoying yoga, sun and the beautiful scenery. Yoga classes take place twice daily and are tailored toward each guests own level, making sure that each week is suitable for each guests own ability. During your yoga holiday, there are also opportunities to relax, enjoy the superb views in the area, swim, read, sleep, have treatments in the spa and explore the beautiful local villages and landscape in the region. There is also a massage room where a range of massage treatments are offered at very reasonable rates. Sessions should be booked at the beginning of the week.

Food

La Rosa offers delicious cuisine with a fantastic variety of local, seasonal, and fresh produce. The chef follows a PH alkaline diet so guests can expect healthy vegetarian cuisine combining lots of raw, organic and gluten, wheat and dairy free dishes. Many fruits and vegetables are picked fresh from the garden that morning and the team also make their own goat cheese and milk. The Italian influence is still there with homemade bread, pastries, and pasta but due to the special ingredients like buckwheat flour these are all much lighter and healthier than the traditional recipes.

Each meal will be introduced by Ilaria who will explain each dish before guests dive in to the bountiful buffet. At dinner, guests will also have the option to enjoy one glass of tasty local wine, with the option to purchase more if they wish to.

The retreat includes delicious and healthy cuisine for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. %The venue follows a PH alkaline diet philosophy inspired to offer the rich flavors of Italy through healthier and lighter recipes.
