La Rosa dei 4 Venti is one of the word’s best yoga retreat venues as featured in the book GREAT YOGA RETREATS published by Taschen Books.
Samacitta is delighted to be offering a yoga retreat week from JUNE 23 to 30 with Monica Marini and Katrina Johnston – June is the best month to come to Puglia – as the land and sea are still fresh and the verdant landscape is in full blossom.
The venue has been exquisitely converted from a traditional Puglian ‘masseria’ into what is now a unique and dedicated yoga holiday and retreat venue that is solely for yoga practice and meditation and holistic therapies, which comes complete with a tiny chapel, a wooden floored yoga shala and extensive grounds and beautiful accommodation in white-washed stone buildings and trulli-style white conical buildings typical to the Apulia region of Southern Italy with surrounding green views and hand-made dry-stone walls.
This 15-hectare property is situated on a small hillock in the heart of the Itria Valley in the heel of Italy’s boot with nearest international airports Brindisi and Bari.
Each bedroom is unique, full of character and comes with en suite bathroom.
The masseria comfortably accommodates 10 people with their own room or up to 16 with some sharing and some single occupancy rooms. Some bedrooms are in the main house and some in the trullis. Freedom and simplicity are at the heart of this yoga retreat space.
The landscape is scenic and rural and is dotted with beautiful olive trees and vineyards, divided by the pretty dry-stone walls. Between the lovely gardens, swimming pool, 15 hectares of grounds, including home-grown vegetables and gardens of wild woods and fields, there are iconic stone statues and sitting out places to relax and contemplate, ancient and sacred olive trees and a tiny chapel with frescoes and much sacred history, together with many places in the grounds in which to explore and to have time to be free and at one with Nature and with yourself.
There is delicious chef-cooked vegetarian food, with local produce staying true to season and to the surroundings, including traditional recipes of Puglia, served straight from farm-to-table.
The retreat chef can cater to any reasonable special dietary requirements, but she does need prior notice at the time of booking.
