Home base during our week in Tuscany is the amazing 800-year-old farmhouse at Ebbio, a working organic farm that oozes character from past centuries and life in simpler times. We will greet each day with compassionate revitalization through Gentle Yoga with Rudy. After a healthy delicious breakfast we will embark on a special exploration of the unique treasures and spectacular scenery of this fabled region.
We will venture through the rolling hills, farmland, lush groves of olive trees, vineyards, and ancient villages. Visions of centuries past will emerge in scenes of hilltop castles, tile-roofed farmhouses and the farm life passed down for generations. We will imbibe the fragrant air of the harvest season and, take pause for a local treat of gelato or cappuccino.
Returning to our villa, we will integrate our adventures with stretching, deep relaxation, meditation, enjoying good company and dining on the evening’s repast including victuals from the earth at Ebbio. (Visit their website ).
