Full Description

Set in the tranquil Italian countryside of Salento and 5 minutes drive from the beach, The Indian Summer Retreat will give you the opportunity to take some invaluable time out and focus on a happier, healthier you. 

Co-taught by Julie and Kamal, both yoga teachers, certified in India and with Indian origins, the yoga classes will be a mix of Hatha and Vinyasa, including special beach sunrise and full moon sessions.

The host, Masseria Coccioli is a beautifully restored 15th century estate surrounded by ancient olive groves of the Salento countryside. Rooms vary from single to triple occupancy, all with private baths. Classes will take place indoors, in the centennial nearby natural preserve, out by the pool or on the beach.

Join us for a daily guided meditation in the morning sunshine, activate your body and mind with an energising yoga class, enjoy a healthy balanced brunch including superfoods, spend the rest of your day relaxing by the pool or the beach, treat yourself to a complimentary massage, explore the baroque city of Lecce (‘The Florence of Southern Italy’) and other historical  towns in the Salento region. Come home and wind down with a calming, stress relieving yoga class, followed by a delicious 'home restaurant' style dinner. 

The menu includes seasonal vegetables and fruits, a selection of fresh salads, vegetable dishes, grains, delicious locally-caught fish/seafood and sustainable meat. Brunches and dinners will be prepared by local Chefs.
