Luxury retreat Tuscany 

a unique three-day luxury health and wellbeing retreat in a boutique hotel in Southern Tuscany with Charis Cooper yoga and Alteo concierge.  Alteo specialises in bespoke luxury concierge and travel services. This collaboration allows for an experience like no other. Everything about this retreat has been carefully planned and curated down to the last detail to ensure that guests leave feeling fully relaxed, rejuvenated and inspired. The retreat is purposely being kept small to ensure the highest quality experience for each individual. Spaces are limited so please don’t hesitate to book.

The venue

Monteverdi is a rare boutique hotel overlooking the historic Val d’Orcia in the province of Siena, midway between Rome and Florence in southern Tuscany. It is the timeless Tuscany you dream about: Medieval hilltop village; no paved roads or sidewalks. Sweeping views of fields of gold and green, cypress trees and vineyards, Roman roads, watchtowers and walled cities.

Each day will start with an outdoor yoga and meditation class lead by Charis. The rejuvenating yoga practise is designed to get the body gradually moving, breath flowing and heart opening. Followed by a guided meditation to truly open the heart, and calm the mind, bringing your awareness into the present moment and allowing you to enjoy every moment of the day ahead. Each day will end with a relaxing and restorative yoga class followed by a second meditation to prepare you for a deep and nourishing sleep.

The retreat will include:

> Two daily yoga and meditation classes

> One to one yoga sessions on request

> Spa treatments

> Wine tasting

> Hike to local nature reserve with olive oil tasting

> Italian cooking class

The food at this retreat is like no other. This is authentic Tuscan cuisine, overseen by Chef Giancarla, who has been a pioneer of the organic, slow-food movement. You will be offered an abundance of beautifully cooked, fresh organic ingredients and world-class wines - a true feast for the senses.
