International retreat facilitators Kate Nash NBB (Transformational Movement Facilitator) and Christopher Connolly MA (Spiritual Life Coach) will guide your through movement and self-exploration activities that will enhance your creativity, well-being and self-care.


After morning retreat activities and relaxation at a luxurious 14th Century private Villa, Artistic Gourmet Adventures will guide you for two of the afternoons exploring the ancient cities and small towns in Tuscany.

Our other afternoons we will have a relaxing mix of Savoring Time when you choose your activities, culminating (just before Happy Hour at the villa) with a gentle stretch class and guided meditation with Kate and Chris... followed by a Gourmet 4 course dinner with wine parings.

Our private accommodation for this exciting Adventure is luxurious and full of character.

The pool and gardens are vast, with astounding views across the hills. The elegant décor of the Villa feels very comfortable.

Tuscany is the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance with its amazing art, music and literature.
The fashion and textile industry are the pillars of the Florentine economy. In the 15th century, Florentines were working with luxury textiles such as wool and silk. Today the greatest designers in Europe utilize the textile industry in Tuscany, and especially Florence.

Also notable are the exquisite gold jewelry; leather clothing, shoes and purses, alabaster art and handcrafted knives.
There are gastronomic delights such as red wines like Chianti Classico and Brunello di Montalcino. Wonderful cheeses, cured meats and amazing extra-Virgin Olive oil.
