About This Center

La Conchiglia is not a retreat centre. It is a privately owned masseria/luxury home in the heart of Salento, Puglia. It has 7 bedrooms, two are trullis (traditionally built round houses) and all have en suite bathrooms. There is a large pool, a tennis court, a yoga shala, an outdoor cinema for yoga documentaries, a pizza oven and an outdoor dining area in the garden by the pool under the pergola. We offer 7 nights accommodation including chef-cooked mostly vegetarian food and twice daily yoga. We might eat fish one evening if the group chooses, for those who are pescatarian and not totally vegetarian.  There will be an excursion to the beach which is about 10 minutes away and there is ample time to visit Lecce if you wish, the beautiful Baroque/Moorish city of the South of Italy, not to be missed.  Bodywork is offered and there is a long, pool set in lush gardens with total privacy and peace. 

I think often of the phenomenal session I had with you. It's about your healing touch and your soulful aura, and also what you said. It was the first time someone a stranger no less

Venue Highlights

Close to Lecce the beautiful Baroque city of the South of Italy. Much less pretentious and touristy than Florence or Milan. Salento is a dream come true and this private masseria has total privacy, tranquillity and yet the convenience of being only 15 minutes from Lecce, 10 minutes to nearest beaches and 45 minutes to nearest airport - Brindisi airport. Bari airport is 2.5 hours away. The masseria hosts an array of facilities such as dedicated yoga space, tennis court, outdoor cinema, private ensuite bathrooms, luxury, top quality comfort mattresses and linen, pool, croquet lawn, gazebo dining area by pool and private surrounding olive groves and gardens.

Delicious Local Food
Staying true to the surroundings, traditional recipes of Puglia using local produce are offered with healthy snacks and fruit during yoga breaks. Farm-to-table chef-cooked vegetarian meals are of an excellent standard, making full use of the local food and home-grown vegetable gardens. If you have any extra special dietary requirements or allergies, please let us know at the time of booking and we will do our best to accommodate them. There is a pizza oven and we will have a pizza night (healthy vegetarian version!) cooked by a private pizza chef on the final evening. Wine will be served on the final evening.

Why Retreat?

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

To feed my soul so that I may return to my students with more inspiration and love to share! Jennifer
