Quietness, peace, nature, liberty, yoga, sharing, heart, love: these are the key concepts to convey the spirit of “La Rosa dei 4 Venti, Yoga place”, set by the countryside at about 5.6 miles from Martina Franca, in Puglia, Italy — the place is immersed in the splendid nature of Valle d’Itria, mostly famous for its Trulli (ancient buildings which have now almost all turned into houses) and for its worth visiting towns (Martina Franca, Alberobello, Ostuni, Cisternino).
The 16th century masseria (farmhouse) has been elegantly restored in a way that the old Apulian style meets contemporary chic . The cool, white stone building makes it a perfect temperature even under the hot Italian sun. The stylish rooms are extremely comfortable and the traditional Italian cuisine is mouth-wateringly divine. This magical spot in the Itria Valley is secluded in the countryside dotted with the traditional small white conical buildings - trullis. Martina Franca is nearby with its charming cobbled streets, markets, Italian coffee and ice cream. La Rosa Dei Venti is the ultimate yoga destination.
Whether you want to deepen your yoga practice, chill by the pool, relax with a massage, cycle the rolling hills, or swim in the sea – all is possible in this spectacular location. Two yoga classes a day with the opportunity for each guest to practice at his/her own level making the week suitable for students of different abilities. Do yoga and get to the spiritual heart of the practice.
The grounds contain lovely gardens, a swimming pool, a wild forest and fields, and a tiny church. There is plenty of space to walk and be free.
Food: The mouth watering vegetarian meals are cooked to an excellent standard using local produce. You will sample some of the traditional recipes of Puglia as well as raw and alkalising meals. If you have any special dietary requirements please notify us at the time of booking and we will do our best to accommodate these, although everything will be wheat free, the only dairy will be home made goats cheese and the milk is locally unpastorized boiled in the house. All the pasta it home made with spelt. You will be surprised on how strong and healthy you will feel by the end of the week! for the same reason the retreat is strictly alcohol free and we strongly ask you to respect that by not bringing any wine of your own to not encourage others.
Treatments: There is a massage room where a range of massage treatments are offered at very reasonable rates. Sessions should be booked at the beginning of the week.
Accommodation: All rooms are en suite with shower, toilet and basin. Each room is a different shape and unique is its own way. Furnishings and fabrics complement the building and create a calm and very comfortable environment. The masseria comfortably accommodates 10 students and close by there are another 5 rooms in the trulli houses. These small, white conical buildings are one of the most magical aspects of the Puglian landscape. It’s not a hotel; it’s a unique, comfortable, family-run specialist yoga destination.
