Welcome your dreams of love, of openness and inner relaxation in the environment that I like to create in Sicily with the help of wonderful cooks, the inimitable landscapes made of a warm Sea and amazing Sunsets.
It is just the perfect atmosphere for you to open your heart and let go of what in the past has created a wall of insecurity, automatic responses and discouragement.
In the magical setting of Sicily, mesmerized by this pampering landscape, you will have an out of space and out of time experience, that will enable you to come back to your daily routine with a completely different mind set.
Our daily trips to the local beaches to practice yoga and meditation will awaken your spiritual connection with nature and with your own nature. You will also have the opportunity to visit highly powerful sites that will contribute to your inner transformation.
Don’t hesitate! Secure your spot for the extraordinary opportunity to be part of a select group of people that are connecting to transform their destiny by transforming themselves.
Looking forward to sharing the magic of self work in Sicily with you.

Menu/CuisineThe idea of a Retreat for Donatella includes the quality and the energy involving food quality and food preparation. Being a Certified Holistic Nutritionist, Donatella has always given priority to the way she feeds her clients during her Retreats. It's one of her firm beliefs that allowing our bodies to feel nurtured and loved is important to allow a deeper part of ourselves to open up and transform.
"...A lot of our earlier memories are most likely attached to food and the story around it is one of the most important chapter of our lives. For these reasons, it becomes important during a meditation retreat, to experience a magical relationship with food, with the abundance of freshly grown fruits and vegetables, fragrant herbs, and divinely cooked dishes, just prepared and served to you in a loving and elegant manner by our superb cooks Alda and Franz. ~Donatella Moltisanti
Franz and Alda, renown home cooking chefs, just fit the bill. They are in love with each other and in love with their art of cooking. Not only they cook divinely, but they put so much love in their recipes and decorations that it's impossible not to feel pampered.
The Sicilian original cuisine is an important element to the experience of being immersed in the Sicilian culture. All of the food for the retreat is prepared on staff daily to bring the flavors of Sicily to our table.
You’ll enjoy fresh grown products and local dishes lovingly prepared with attention to detail. You'll have the choice of vegetarian or local mediterranean meals.

Comiso (about 45 minutes from the retreat location)

We offer a car service from the airport to Villa Magda, which is located in Marina di Ragusa. We would book this for you with our driver and the cost is usually around 150 Euros. If there are other retreat participants arriving around the same time we always consolidate the rides so there may be an opportunity to share this cost. (There is also a bus from Catania to Ragusa. From Comiso there is no bus service)
