Join Stacey for an immersion into “La Dolce Vita” – the sweet life – in the Tuscan countryside. Your week will be filled with transformational yoga, delicious home-cooked meals, local wine, joyful day-trips, and delightful company. This retreat offers an opportunity to rest and recharge in an idyllic setting while experiencing all the best Tuscany has to offer.

Relax in the stunning Tuscan landscape while immersing yourself in yoga and self-care. Enjoy local, organic meals prepared by our personal chef and served traditional family style. Experience the beauty of this ancient region and its rich heritage.

Our charming villa is a meticulously restored 17th Century farmhouse just outside of the walled medieval city of Lucca. It rests on a hilltop providing panoramic views of the surrounding hillsides of vineyards, fruit trees, and olive groves.

You’ll have plenty of free time each day to explore neighboring villages – by foot or by bike, stroll to a centuries-old winery on the “Strata del Vino” (the wine road), take a Tuscan cooking class, receive a massage at the spa, or simply unwind by the salt-water pool. Together the group will take a daylong excursion to Cinque Terre, The Italian Riviera. 

This trip will make memories that last a lifetime!
