Program

Your day trips will allow you to experience the many unique landscapes and activities that this area has to offer. You will take a tour through Pulgia's famous "trulli" white cone-shaped houses in the town of Alberobello, a UNESCO heritage site where the main concentration of these trulli still stand. You'll enjoy a walk around town and a tasting lunch before seeing more of the area on your way home.

Next, you will have a relaxed day at the beach exploring the amazing coastal areas of this region, followed by an amazing unique dinner in a "grotto" overlooking the cliffs by the sea in Polignano al Mare, one of Puglia's most picturesque villages. The next day is spent getting to know the tastes of the regions with a cheese tasting and a visit to the nearby town of Martina Franca and then a winery visit with a tasting, tour, and lunch.

Your next day takes you to the beautiful hilltop town of Ostuni, the "white city" which overlooks the sea. You'll have some time to explore after a visit to one of Italy's oldest olive farms, and then enjoy a local meal in one of the area's well-known restaurants. Your last day will allow you to unwind in a beautiful spa with treatments and time around the pool!

Daily meditation and yoga classes will be offered in a way to relax, stimulate, and help guests grow in their own personal practice. Classes are open to all levels, beginner to practiced, and can range from gentle, Restorative, and more vigorous Vinyasa flow and Ashtanga styles. Style and class levels will be determined and molded to fit participating students' needs, and with a small intimate retreat class size, students will be able to get personalized attention and comfort to deeply explore their practice.

Depending on each retreat location, classes will be held in a dedicated indoor yoga space and some also offer outdoor options as well for us to use if the weather is agreeable. Participation in classes and activities is optional throughout the retreat.

Retreat location

This retreat will take place at Masseria Fumarola in Puglia, Italy. Masseria Fumarola is in the heart of Italy's "up and coming" region, Puglia. The masseria is a traditional house topped with 11 trulli (the cone-shaped constructions so iconic of this part of the world) and puts you at the heart of rural Italian life. Admire the ancient oven and wrought-iron beds, and sleep where the farm’s wine was once produced, a secluded pool girdled with chestnut trees, a private 6-hectare wood of "fragni" (a variety of oak unique to this area), design-conscious decor, and amazing on-site cuisine will make you feel like home over this week.

Located in the Valle d’Itria which is one of the prettiest areas of Puglia, the sun-splashed heel of the Italian boot, this villa is surrounded by olive groves hide ancient fortified farms and whitewashed towns spill down the rolling hills towards vineyards and orchards. Once a working farm run by the grandmother of present owner Anna, and converted into a hotel by Anna’s architect father, this family affair is a rustic yet sumptuous retreat.

The rooms that spread across the main building and a scattering of outhouses are soothing and spacious, with sitting areas, flat-screen TVs, and fireplaces under domed ceilings. Outside are terraces encircled by chestnut and olive trees, a pool that’s large enough for laps, and an organic garden where fruit and vegetables are grown for the restaurant.

It’s a stylish slice of rural Italian life, a place to savor simple delights: dappled sunlight on your skin, a poolside siesta in the shade of a prickly-pear tree, a glass of local wine at sunset, and the chatter of birds from the masseria’s six hectares of private woodland.
