This package is EXCLUSIVE to Winerist
Enjoy a full immersion into all things Tuscan, with some yoga intertwined with this 8-day break.
Tuscany is the very essence of Italy, with its endless vineyards and olive groves, cypress lined hills and antique cities brimming with art. Throw in the culinary greatness and excellent wine that the region is known for and you have the perfect recipe for living the dolce vita! Experience all that Tuscany has to offer while weaving in a daily yoga practice that will keep you feeling energetic and fully present.
The accommodation will be a beautiful 3 bedroom villa located right in the heart of the Tuscan countryside between Cortona and Montepulciano, surrounded by breathtaking landscapes of the iconic cypress-lined rolling hills. At the same time you will be just a short 15 minute drive from one of the most amazing hill towns of Italy, Cortona, that not by chance inspired the book "Under the Tuscan Sun".
The property was built using traditional Tuscan stone and brick, making a charming exterior that blends perfectly with the surrounding landscape. It offers a fully equipped kitchen, WI-FI, air conditioning, large private swimming pool and a spacious garden, all with a spectacular view. The perfect setting to live the Tuscan dream!
