SEPTEMBER 14 - SEPTEMBER 19th 2020
The location for our September Yoga retreat is a 19th century farmhouse - La Masseria - situated in the luscious natural landscape of South Eastern Sicily, near Noto, Siracusa, and surrounded by the breathtaking Mediterranean sea. A beautiful setting close to nature that helps you unwind and rejuvenate. Close to wonderful beaches and historical sites such as Noto, Siracusa, Scicli, Ibla..
La Masseria has 6 apartments, 11 bedrooms, each tastefully and individually furnished and 7 bathrooms. For comfort, all rooms are fitted with Egyptian cotton sheets and towels and complimentary organic toiletries. Yoga will take place in the large studio which is a beautifully restored pitch roof barn fully equipped with all props needed. A large fresh water infinity pool, mulitiple different patios and living spaces, a massage room and a stunning sunset terrace. We will have the entire villa to ourselves so will be able to fully relax in the patio areas, by the pool, in your room or on the sunny roof terrace. The villa has wifi connection.
There will be twice daily yoga practices plus workshops. Massage/body treatments available. Delicious vegetarian brunches and dinners. Opportunities to visit the ancient cities, hiking in the nature reserve- Vendicari, plus space for lots of relaxing next to the pool. There will be a cookery class arranged during the retreat which I am very excited about!
On all my retreats, I will always be available for private one to one yoga sessions if desired.
Danena Sicily is a one-hour drive south from Catania airport, on the island’s east coast. Moments to some of the most wonderful beaches and historical sites.
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.
There is plenty to explore nature and culture wise. Going to the Sicilian historical towns which are all around, hiking in the most beautiful nature reserve by the sea, walking through plantations of almonds, olives and watermelons fields or cycling on trails amongst the groves, swimming in the magical pool and of course going to the wonderful beaches.
