Cugnanello lavanda

Locanda Cugnanello is an 800-year-old villa located in the lovely region of Tuscany in northern Italy. The estate lies nestled amidst vineyards and is surrounded by olive groves, lavender, and idyllic hills. The 12-bedroom Villa offers the perfect blend of centuries-old history and modern amenities. Each bedroom is a wonderful mix of old-world charm and luxurious comfort. 

Your days will begin with a grounding morning yoga session, either in the dedicated yoga room inside the villa, or perhaps an outdoor practice poolside  A prepared breakfast follows, along with plenty of time to explore the grounds and connect with yourself and fellow retreat members. Perhaps that includes lounging by the beautiful pool, taking an excursion to one of the nearby medieval villages, or getting a massage. You may even choose to utilize the gym on the property for a workout.  

Most days we will also have an early evening yoga class, followed by some time to freshen up and enjoy an aperitivo with your friends before sitting for a lovely dinner as a group, with wine included. Afterward, you will undoubtedly find members of the group relaxing at the fire pit or one of the other cozy outdoor spaces. 

Two of our days will only offer a morning yoga practice because one day we will be doing a group excursion to a local medieval town, and one other afternoon will be left open for participants to do an excursion of their own, or simply relax.
