About This Center

Wild beaches, seriously tempting food and wine, few other tourists and an authentic down to earth life style– await those who venture to Lunablu Retreats, in the sun-kissed south of Puglia. In 2018 Luca Venturini and Petra Stormen, co-founders of Lunablu Retreats will be awaiting you again in Salento (Puglia), the heel of Italy. 

Petra: '....We have created this niche in traveling-retreat business. We have created a strong, healthy sense of community and an environment that invites for genuine self-expression and deep self exploration. With Luca's Chef qualities and in-depth knowledge of the Italian kitchen and wines, and my background in business and coaching for over 20 years, we simply hold space for our visitors to heal and grow. We are proud to co-create with our team! Our talented retreatleaders travel from far and away, and share their knowlegde and wisdom. We are so excited about another amazing retreat year and meeting you in person in 2018! '

Participate in unique self-development workshops, tai chi, meditation, art and yoga classes. The food and the drinks are shared in true Italian style, sitting at a candle lit outdoor table, where you are invited to share the best version of yourself while you are surrounded by a small group of like-minded people.

Your time here is completely focused around you: we support you to relax, enjoy, celebrate and contemplate, while you discover life as it should be!

We are awaiting you!

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

I'm having a baby in October and want to focus my practice so I can be present and calm! Laine

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
