Luxury Boutique City and Sea Yoga Escape in Sicily

best retreats in Italy

Our all inclusive city and sea yoga escape in Sicily begins in the vibrant and flamboyant city of Palermo. Famed for its storied past and street food culture, this is a city at the edge of Europe, at center of the ancient world. A place where Arabesqu rub shoulders with baroque churches, a place where fallen empires and faded frescos collide.

Staying in the heart of the old Souk markets, at the luxury boutique hotel Baglio San Giovanni we find ourselves in the lively centro storico wandering the labyrinthine streets, breathing in the dazzling aroma of spices, and savoring local delights.

We greet each morning with a guided meditation, followed by a yoga class focusing on the chakras to recharge the body’s energy centres. Weather permitting, our morning practice will take place in the gardens of our Hotel. Following this, we indulge in a café breakfast Sicilian-style, before taking some precious moments for riposare — the lovely Italian word for relaxation.

The rest of our days we spend in the ancient heart of Palermo, wandering the colourful markets with fruit stalls piled high resembling works of art, breathing in the dazzling aroma of spices, and savoring street food delights.

We take you on a tour, exploring the aphrodisiac properties of Sicilian spezzi and enjoy a cooking class with a local chef, who will share culinary secrets passed down from generations. We lunch and dine at restaurants serving local specialties sure to captivate the senses.

In Sicilian cuisine we find a tradition of flavourful simplicity — and like an artist’s palette, it is a delicious testimony to the intricate tapestry of cultures that settled here.

This escape is open to singles and couples of all levels of yoga, and every walk of life. For anyone interested in the mind-opening experiences inspired by yoga, meditation and travel, as well as a love of Italy and it’s food and culture, then this is the retreat for you!.

Mid-week we journey to the seaside oasis of Marsala — famed for its picturesque salt-pans, sweet wine and amber sunsets. We find repose at the beautifully appointed and luxurious villa.

During this part of our Escape we slow down and focus on renewal and restoration as we practice yoga and meditation in the tranquil haven of our villa’s rose garden.

Our activities on Sicily’s west coast include a private wine tour, a day trip to the exquisite isle of Favignana, charming sunset aperitivi, and a fun workshop learning the art of the ‘perfect photograph’.

Uur Escape culminates hilltop gazing over the picturesque vineyards of Fina Cantina, as we sip on our aperitif, storytell with the stars, and watch the sunset over the Egadi Islands. In true Sicilian style, we wine and dine together one last evening, creating a memorable tavola of stories and flavours to remain with us per sempre.

Step out of the chalet and the mountain trails are yours for the picking. If you’ve not visited the French Alps in the summer time, you’re in for a treat. As the winter snow melts away in the spring, the mountains take on their summer mantle of bright green grass and colourful alpine flowers. The views are equally as spectacular in the summer as they are in the winter.

After a long walk reward yourself with a swim to cool off in a refreshing glacial lake. There are so many hikes to choose from, at blue, red or black levels.

Enjoy views of Mont Blanc in the distance. If you feel like a day off from walking why not try paragliding or white water rafting, or enjoy the Olympic sized pool in Bourg St Maurice.
