11 Sep What you can expect on our digital detox October retreat!
It’s not long until our October digital detox retreat in beautiful Italy and we’re getting really excited! Places are filling up fast and if you’ve already booked yours or are thinking about joining us (do book soon!) we thought we’d let you know a little bit more about what you can expect.
Masseria della Zingara is an old house (built way back in 1710) situated in the heart of the Pugliese countryside on a ridge of hills extending the length of Puglia.
The house has been beautifully and tastefully restored with great attention to detail and is set in over 20 acres of land bursting with olive, fig, cherry and almond trees. Guests will be able to wander down through the olive groves and neighbouring countryside or stay at the house and enjoy its swimming pool and sun terrace. Needless to say, the views are stunning all year round – it’s the perfect place to restore and rejuvenate.
Guests will stay in nine beautifully restored twin or double rooms, some with en-suite bathrooms and balconies, others with shared bathrooms. (For more info on the rooms click here.)
All food and refreshments will be provided throughout the retreat, and oh! How we’re looking forward to it! Guests will be nourished with delicious, fresh, homemade, locally-sourced, healthy, plant-based, predominantly raw and vegetarian food during their stay – there’ll be a healthy brunch (with fresh smoothies and juices!) every day, followed by a plant-based light lunch and then a vegetarian feast for dinner. It’ll be the perfect fuel to keep you energised and refreshed throughout your digital detox.
And just what can you expect to do during your stay? Well, we’re certain you won’t miss your gadgets!
Every day will start with a meditative walk and an energising yoga class and there’ll be restorative yoga before dinner each evening… the rest of the day is free to spend as you please! There’ll be plenty of flow activities on offer such as colouring, cooking and journaling, but guests are more than welcome to do whatever they like – why not take a walk, go for a swim, read a book or play with the adorable dogs, Betsey and Sophia (they’re much more fun than Angry Birds, trust us.) Oh, and we’ve got a few surprises in store too!
Free from your digital devices and the pressures of your normal life, our digital detox retreats provide the ultimate restorative break and will help you live better and healthier afterwards. It’s time to log off and we know everyone will feel better for it.
The retreat takes place from 15th-18th October. For more details or to make a booking please contact us, we’d love to hear from you.
