The rolling hills of Italy may call to mind long countryside drives and wine tastings, but the relaxing setting is perfect for many things. Like, for example, a week spent engaging in an ultra-luxurious wellness vacation. Doesn’t sound too shabby to us. One of our favorite yoga instructors — Michelle Barge — is offering a special week-long itinerary with Paraiso Adventures in Umbria from October 5th – 11th. We traveled with Michelle through Como a few years back, and let us assure you – this girl knows her stuff.
The itinerary sounds right up a luxury lover’s alley, complete with private home, in-house Italian chef for the communal kitchen, and daily yoga practices. Highlights of the itinerary include wine tasting, day trips to Civita di Bagnoregio, cooking school, the Tuscan hot springs in San Casciano di Bagni and an afternoon at a local market.
Prices vary per room reserved, but we’d splurge on the detached master “casita,” a reasonable $3,800 for the week.
