Unwind on white sandy beaches

Salty air, golden sand and azure crystalline water; your trip to Puglia would not be complete without a day at the beach to take it all in. On one of the retreat days, after a dynamic morning yoga class, we'll take  you to one of the local beaches. Relax & unwind with a book, meditate in the shade,  go for an invigorating swim or jog on the beach.

We'll share a picnic on the beach but if you wish you can also try one of the beach cafes.

Wine tasting at the Castle

A favourite activity on our retreat is the wine tour & tasting experience at Castello Monaci's own wine museum & cellar. Set between two centuries old olive trees overlooking the grapevines you will learn about the local grape varieties, the pressing process and explore the wine museum & cellars with our local guide. You will finish off the tour with a degustation of some of Salento's famous wines such as the Primitivo, and indulge in a rich choice of typical dishes. And what better way to end your tour than with a walk in the castle's luscious gardens.
