  • Ceglie Messapica, BR, Italy
  • May 31 - Jun 8, 2019 (9 days)

About This Event

Escape with me to this fascinating part of Italy and experience a special week of traditional Puglian delights in a comparatively tourist-free part of Italy.  

Puglia is the heel of Italy's boot rich in culture and history. Delivering breathtaking views, crystal blue seas and interesting towns and villages, the traditional Apulian cone-roofed huts, known as Trulli or a Trullo, give this area UNESCO World Heritage Site status. 

Put your bags in your room at our wonderful trulli villa and open yourself up to a week of new experiences in a region full of history and culture.  

The week will have on offer for you; fun filled excursions; exploring; Italian meals with lovely company; yoga; swimming; meditation; free time and of course, relaxation. It is a week of minding less and experiencing more.


"The excursions were the highlight of my trip. I don’t think I would have visited so many places if I were planning this trip on my own, so I am very happy you arranged a variety of trips for us.  I loved Monopoli. Tory's zest for planning excursions on our Puglia retreat was amazing. She's an excellent yoga instructor too. It was a week I will never forget!”   Karena, USA "My week in Italy was sensational! The beautiful yoga sessions with the most stunning backdrop from every aspect of the villa, the gorgeous towns we visited and wandered around in the afternoon sun, the delicious long breakfasts surrounded by new and old friends, the (contact info blocked) so much more! A truly wonderful experience! Thank you Tory for everything. I will certainly be back for more." Bridie, Australia​​ ​"The escape was a blessing in my busy life. I had built it up in my head so much that just before I went, I was afraid I might have set myself up for disappointment, but no such thing happened. The people were lovely, everyone was easy going, and could do their own thing without question. The villa was absolute bliss and I would do it all over in a heartbeat."  Sjierly, Sierra Leone "The villa and the surrounding area were beautiful and peaceful. What a great way to unwind, exercise and meet like-minded people! Tory obviously loves hosting the retreats and is passionate about yoga & travel. She's so refreshing to be around!"  Jackie, USA
