TUSCANY, ITALY @ villa valentina
m a y   2 0  -  2 8 ,   2 0 1 8

a b o u t
Villa Valentina is located in the town of Vorno, Italy.  Located in a sweet spot just outside the quaint, walled city of Lucca and only a quick ride from the city of Florence and the beautiful beaches of Cinqueterre and Forte dei Marmi.  This 19th-Century restored villa has four acres of private grounds including gardens, vineyards, tennis courts, hot tub, sauna, swimming pool, private massage rooms, wine cellar, hiking trails, and even a 500-year-old pizza oven. This place was made to be a retreat!

Your days will be filled with waking to a freshly-prepared breakfast by the in-house chef, followed by yoga with Melissa. Afterwards, you will have a full afternoon of exploring the grounds, taking a trip to a nearby attraction, or soaking in the hot tub and pool.  When you return you will have a brilliant pranayama practice overlooking the aqueducts or a restorative practice surrounded by original frescos.  Top it all off with an authentic Italian cooking class followed by dinner and an evening of relaxing.
