Description

Imagine taking off to the beautiful Mediterranean island of Sicily for a Yoga retreat that has been carefully crafted to offer you a unique experience and a wonderful balance between Yin and Yang styles of yoga.

With a daily energising practice each morning and calming restorative sessions at night, we will get strong in our bodies and work deeply into connective tissues for a profound sense of release and cleansing. Take a walk through plantations of almonds, olives and watermelon fields or relax in the breathtaking freshwater infinity pool that offers beautiful views of Italy’s stunning scenery.

Relax and unwind with a massage from one of our talented therapists, and of course, visit the magnificent beaches and historical Sicilian towns that are all around us. Each day we will enjoy tea and fruits, an energising brunch and a nourishing dinner.

Accommodation

Set in amongst olive groves, on a country lane away from noise and neighbours, we’re just 15 minutes south from the unspoilt World Heritage town of Noto – one of Italy’s most beautiful historical centres. A beautiful setting close to nature that helps you unwind and rejuvenate.

We have six apartments, 12 bedrooms and can accommodate up to 24 people. The bedrooms are all very individual and charming.

Our Yoga studio is a beautifully restored pitch roof barn and can accommodate up to 25 people, fully equipped with all props.

A fresh water infinity pool, loads of different patios and living spaces, where to eat or simply relax, a massage room and a stunning sunset terrace.

There is plenty to do, walking through plantations of almonds, olives and watermelons fields or cycling on trails amongst the groves, having a massage from one of our great therapist, swimming in our magical pool and of course going to the wonderful beaches or Sicilian historical towns all around us.

What past guests have said

”I just finished a yoga retreat here and it was just magical. All the team were absolutely amazing. The food is delicious, and the chef is so sweet and helpful. It is a beautiful place in a beautiful country, very serene and close to Noto and the beaches. The apartments are clean and adorable. There are two dogs and three cats on the grounds and they are friendly and made our stay even sweeter. I can’t wait to visit again!” Nicole D’Angelo

”Just back from the retreat and full of Sicily sunshine. Can’t recommend this beautiful place enough. The host is a welcoming presence, but unobtrusively ensures everything runs like clockwork. The food is delicious (mostly veggie) and is very varied. Have to mention the wonderful animals who were so much part of our enjoyment and the swimming pool which saw me at least once every day. Do go if you can. I think you will love it too.” Lowe Maire

”This is a beautiful place for those who wish to have a peaceful retreat. The surrounding are just breath taking…the sanctuary is surrounded by olive tress. I simple loved it. I really enjoyed the professional Yoga classes, good food, lovely friends of like mind, pool. The staff are always ready to help with a smile. I hope to see you all again very soon. Namaste!!!”.

”I had the immense pleasure to teach several yoga retreats here. Each time, after the first retreat, I wanted to arrive earlier and leave later since the location itself is already so expanding, relaxing and grounding. The surrounding places to visit are stunning! Teaching at the retreat has been a fun yet professional experience through which I learned and grown another angle of my work/passion. The owner is very attentive to details, sincerely cares about the people who come to the retreats and has perfect taste in cuisine. I look forward to more opportunities to work at this enchanting location. Sat Nam.” Ornella Amore
