End the summer with a relaxing yoga retreat in Umbria, Italy. Wake up by saluting the sun, indulge your taste buds in the delights of local Umbrian cuisine and end your day with a soothing yoga session or massage.
The chosen location for this retreat is a hidden gem in the midst of nature: Pian Della Bandina in Citta Della Pieve. The ecotourism is run by Liesbeth and Guido, a Dutch couple with two sweet daughters, a grandpa and their dog Rocco. During one of my solo trips I ended up here and I just fell in love with the place and the family!
