Yoga Teacher Training Retreats in Italy
ACTIVITIES IN ITALY
There are plenty of activities to enjoy on your day off – from a more active one like hiking or bike riding to more relaxing ones like bathing in springs and getting a massage or a cultural experience like wine tasting. Carri’s personal suggestion is to take a day trip into Orvieto, stroll the beautiful town, eat at a local restaurant, savor the decadent porcini mushrooms and toast the day off with an Umbrian wine!
Immerse yourself in the Umbrian countryside. Upon your arrival recommended walking routes can be provided.
If you wish to take in some cycling during your time in Italy, there are plenty of routes, across quiet and low-traffic, hilly or mountain roads with spectacular scenery. Please check with the hotel regarding bike rentals and suggested routes.
The holiday farm‘s holistic spa has a large 80 square meter yoga room with oak wood floors, heated in the winter, with large windows overlooking the park. Locker rooms have showers, massage and therapy rooms complete the holistic spa. Natural-shaped pool with a large whirlpool bath.
Lounge by the Pool
There is free use of the large complex of two swimming pools (300 m2) and one large spa in the park (during the summer). Salt filtering systems without chlorine. The green park, surrounded by oaks and century-old plants, includes a spring water pool, a true privilege for Locanda della Quercia Calante guests. The only one of its kind at a holiday farm in Castel Giorgio, Orvieto and all of Umbria, the natural lake-shaped pool is surrounded by volcanic rock and divided into three pools on different levels connected by a system of rocky waterfalls. A place where guests discover true wellbeing, with a large whirlpool bath in the middle.
Italy of course is known for amazing wine; since you came all this way do take advantage of some of the best wine in the world! Orvieto is only 18km away and here you can visit several tasting rooms, learn about the local vineyards in the region and sample some delicious white and red wine. We can also organize a wine tasting evening on site through the hotel!
Olive Oil Tasting
Experience the unique taste of freshly-pressed biological extra virgin olive oil. Get your very own fresh extra virgin oil. No fancy labels; just real, genuine, honest produce by small local producers. Upon request the hotel can arrange evening olive oil tasting experiences with local olive producers from the countryside. Fresh biological extra virgin olive oil can be also bought all-year-round from the local producers in Orvieto.
Although your dinners are included on your training you may decide to take in a cooking class instead which can be booked through the hotel.
Touring Historic Sites
Trips with a private driver to historic sites in Orvieto can be organized.
