Full Description

LOCATION - Casanuova Estate and Vineyard, a centuries old estate which served as both a monastery and orphanage before becoming a rustic-chic hotel. Located 25 km from Florence, the estate resides in the Arno Valley and is run as an organic farm specializing in wine and olive oil. Springtime boasts an assortment of wild and cultivated flowers and proves to be one of the most beautiful times on the property.

YOGA - Expect dynamic morning vinyasa flow led by Amber and afternoon sessions led by Anton, along with personal time with both facilitators to expand and develop your own practice. The asana portion of the retreat will take place in a beautiful light filled shala, equipped with yoga mats and props. While yoga is definitely the centrepiece of the retreat, there will still be plenty of time for organized excursions and relaxation. We cater to all levels and invite both the beginner and more experienced practitioner.

EXCURSIONS - Aside from classes and workshops, the retreat includes an organic farm tour and wine tasting and a yoga hike and picnic in the local forest. Ulla, the proprietress of the estate, is happy to lead walks and talks in the surrounding areas. Massages are available on site for an extra fee, as is a cooking class which celebrates Ulla's beloved garden.

LA CUCINA - In true farm-to-table spirit, Casanuova's organic garden provides all the ingredients necessary for wholesome and delicious cuisine. Old recipes are reinterpreted by the estate chefs who take great pride in each creation. Meals are served around big wooden tables on the terrace with magnificent views over the Tuscan landscape. In cooler weather, we eat indoors, warmed by a large stone hearth.

All food, coffee, wine and beverages are included in the retreat fees. Expect early morning tea/coffee and fruit, a hearty brunch, afternoon tea/coffee and homemade cakes, and a thoughtfully prepared dinner. Options for vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and any other dietary restrictions are available.

LE CAMERE (the rooms) - Twenty rooms provide guests with beautiful views over the Tuscan countryside or the romantic inner courtyard. Appointed in a typically rustic tuscan style, each rooms possesses its own unique character with much attention to detail. All bathrooms are contemporary and well-appointed. Rooms are cleaned daily and linens / towels can be replaced upon request.

Guests can choose independent or shared accommodations (priced accordingly).
