FLOW OF THE DAY . . .
MORNINGS begin with a silent walk through the olive grove for you to savor the tranquility and feel the rejuvenating power of nature. Our yoga practice will start here, in communion with the ancient olive trees, and move into the beautiful arched yoga sala for a more focused Hatha-Vinyasa practice. Following yoga we will enjoy a healthy breakfast/brunch with local ingredients and fresh Italian coffee on the villa’s terrace with splendid views of the vineyard and valley beyond.
AFTERNOONS can be spent soaking in the sun on the Ionian sea, exploring the beautiful nature of Puglia, or discovering Puglia’s fascinating seaside towns and country villages. There will be three organized excursions to explore the romantic medieval white cities of Puglia, and two Unesco World Sites of Matera and Alberobello, with the “Trulli” stone houses, unique only to this small region in Puglia. Before dinner we will meet on the beach or in the yoga sala for a sunset practice of relaxing flow or Yin Yoga.
EVENINGS are pure magic, as our talented chef and winemakers serve you a healthy and traditional gourmet dinner paired with the organic Primitivo grown in the villa’s vinyard (wine is optional of course!) Savor the sumptuous tastes and simple pleasures of good food, good wine and great company!
