Stylish Summer Retreat in Tuscany
28th June – 4th July 2020
Treat yourself to a dreamy week of yoga in Tuscany this summer at the magical Ebbio (www.ebbio.it) agriturismo, a stylishly restored 13th century farm. Join us for seven nourishing days of yoga and the ultimate organic, zero-miles Italian food experience. Long, balmy evenings will allow us to dine outside and enjoy Ebbio’s picture-perfect Tuscan surroundings — whether food fresh from the kitchen or even their wood-burning pizza oven.
Erin will offer a morning Vinyasa class and evening Restorative session daily, in Ebbio’s beautiful yoga space. Take advantage of plenty of free time in-between to check out nearby Siena, go wine tasting in Chianti, or explore the Tuscan countryside.
● 5 morning Vinyasa classes
● 5 evening Restorative classes
● All vegetarian meals
Ebbio is a 12th century colonic-style complex, immersed in the ancient Holm oak woods right at the gate of Montemaggio hill. This magical farm sits between between Siena and Florence, just 1.8 km away from the medieval village of Monteriggioni. Ebbio is an organic farm of 7 hectares, we cultivate olive trees, vineyards, fruits and vegetables, used in the preparation of the vegetarian meals we offer during your stay.
Ebbio prides itself on their use of fresh, locally sourced ingredients, primarily the produce they grow their our own site, which is certified organic. They follow the rhythms of nature and try to be as self sufficient as possible.
Dinner will be provided on the first evening, followed by morning tea/coffee, brunch, and dinner daily. On the day of departure, breakfast will be provided.
Please arrange your own transfers — there may be an opportunity for sharing transport once people are booked on to the Retreat. Ebbio can also recommend transfer companies.
