Tuscan Fitness

About us

Tuscan Fitness is located just outside a town called Cavriglia, located in the Upper Valdarno in the province of Arezzo and is often considered the center of the triangle that joins the cities of Florence, Arezzo and Siena, making it ideal for visiting the area. Nestled between the left bank of the river Arno and the hills of Chianti, it is also called the “Porta del Chianti”, or the door of Chianti, as it sits on the doorstep of this beautiful region, famous worldwide for its delicious wines.

The area around where the retreat is located is typically Tuscan, complete with rolling green hills, olive groves and vineyards. This part of Tuscany has a great deal to see and we do our utmost to work with local producers and businesses to show the best of the region.

The hotel is also conveniently located for those interested in making day trips to the famous towns and cities in the area, including Florence (45 minute drive), Arezzo (30 minutes), Siena (30 minutes) and Orvieto (45 minutes).

      Returning Yogiis

    My friends and I returned this May 2018 after first visiting Tuscan Fitness in 2016. We had a great time, with a good balance of yoga, healthyfood, walking and fresh air. Although we love the health focus, we returned as this is a relaxed place that doesnt frown if you to enjoy like all the food and drink aspects of Italy too. Lovely stay, the ladies from London will be back! All instructors are great and I found Cali's style of yoga perfect for me. and thank youto Paolo for encouraging me through HIIT! See you in 2019 x

      You're in for a magical stay at Tuscan Fitness!

    I stayed at Tuscan fitness a few weeks ago at the start of April, and had an unforgettable few days, being made to feel incredibly welcome from the get-go by Alix, David and Paolo. What I particularly loved was that it wasn't what some may view as a 'typically intense yoga retreat'. There was a full schedule of classes to occupy you throughout the day (and I loved that this was a blend of Yoga, HIIT, Barre and hiking in the Tuscan hills), but equally there was no pressure to attend if you would rather spend the hour reading on one of their viewpoint benches, or taking a dip in the swimming pool, which has probably one of the best views to swim in that I've ever seen (I was so sad that i didn't get to experience it myself because the volatile weather meant it wasn't open yet). The day was broken up by a sociable breakfast, lunch and dinner in their on-site restaurant which was always so enjoyable to meet and chat with the other retreaters - all from a wide array of nationalities and with their own unique stories of what brought them to Tuscan Fitness. Also, the food was aplenty! A buffet of fruit, yoghurt, granola, toast, eggs for Breakfast; and a generous starter and main for Lunch and Dinner (if you're on a diet you do have the option to halve the portions - I did not). Each day the food was uniquely different and delicious, all made with fresh ingredients. I also enjoyed that they offered additional evening classes on a few of the days. Whilst I was there I made fresh ravioli, and wine tasting at a local vineyard - we bought a couple of bottles to take back with us for dinner that night. I'm gutted I missed out on the olive oil tasting. The only thing I would have changed is that I probably went a week or two early, as the weather was overcast one day, and rainy the next (but I did have two days of brilliant sunshine). This meant they hadn't opened the pool up yet and we did all our classes inside (although I reckon we could have managed a few sessions out on the amazingly beautiful yoga terrace)! I will definitely consider coming here again, and have already shared with several friends that they should try it out. Thanks so much for such an enjoyable stay! Ruth x
