Spring Yoga & Wine Retreat in Verona, Italy - May 2016

Villa Della Torre

We seek to raise the act of savoring to an art form through the practice yoga in breathtaking surroundings.  We take you on sojourns to stunning sites and show you beautiful vistas in lands less traversed.  We nourish you with authentic, mouth-watering cuisine and wine.  Sarah and Stefano are Sensi e Diletti and will be your expert escorts through Northern Italy, immersing you in ‘La Dolce Vita.’

Our yoga and wine retreat is an opportunity to delight all of one’s senses.

Accommodations

Villa Cordevigo Wine Relais, is an 18th century Venetian Villa which has recently been entirely refurbished as a five-star hotel with its highly-lauded Oseleta Restaurant. The property boasts a magnificent entrance, along a driveway flanked with stately cypress leading up the relais with your finely appointed rooms, replete with rich fabrics, period furnishings, wooden ceilings and Italian marble.  And with its with formal gardens and an age-old park, olive groves and woods, this exquisite estate rests on the hills of Cavaion Veronese, above Lake Garda, and just a short distance from the famous city of Verona--awarded World Heritage Site status for its urban structure and architecture.

Listen & Feel

Breakfast is served every morning from 7:30-10:30am. Meanwhile, a conscious vinyasa yoga session will be taught by Sarah from 9:00-10:30am amidst the lush greenery of the Villa’s perfectly manicured Italian garden--or in the “worst case” scenario, surrounded by a near sphere of well-aged frescos within one of the estate’s elegant rooms.  These 90 minute, all-levels, asana and meditation sessions are designed to awaken and heighten your senses for the day’s delights ahead.

If you are decidedly not a yogi, (like Stefano) there are plenty of other ways to spend the morning--lingering over breakfast, or walking the splendid grounds.  If you are feeling more active, there is a pool, a gym and a great number of amazing cycling routes throughout the Adige Valley and reaching out to Lake Garda.  There are also eight gorgeous golf courses within a short drive.  Or you can indulge in a healing treatment, the Turkish bath, infra-red sauna or hydromassage tub at Cordevido’s Essentia Spa

Taste, Smell & See

We will greet you at Verona Airport (VRN) on Sunday, May 8th and whisk you to the relais, where we’ll commence our week with dinner at the Michelin-starred, Ristorante Oseleta for a delectable tasting menu prepared in our honor.

Each day, just before noon, we'll depart for the daily delights including wine tastings and tours of vineyards throughout the Valpolicella and Soave regions, an authentic Italian cooking course, an afternoon at healing thermal spas at the base of Lake Garda, delectable lunches and dinners at Verona's choicest, authentic restaurants and all of the stunning scenery Northern Italy has to offer.  This week is truly a feast for the senses!
