April 10 -17th, 2010
Tuscany at Ebbio

Imagine an 800 year old picturesque farmhouse ( “Ebbio” ) in a magical place surrounded by an evergreen forest that’s inviting, rustic and beautiful. (Think Under The Tuscan Sun!).  Now imagine time to savor a stroll through the woods,  the smell of fragrant air, the delightful company of wonderful women and all the other magnificent sites and flavors of Tuscany.

With an emphasis on living a balanced, happy, and fulfilled lifestyle (sounds ideal!), we’ll start each day with yoga and a breakfast chat about the “seeds” you can plant to sprout your dreams and grow your life.

Then its time to relax or join many excursions and venture through rolling Tuscan hills, vineyards and ancient country villages.  Enjoy a gelato or sip cappuccino along the way as you have fun and form friendships.

Each day ends with a wonderful evening stretch.

Bloom with la dolce vita!

Sample itinerary includes: Saturday arrival and special meet & greet dinner; day trips to the nearby medieval village of Monteriggioni and to other wonderful Tuscan towns of San Gimignano, Volterra and Sienna; shopping day to “The Mall”, Prada and leather outlets;  hot springs excursion with picnic lunch; glass factory tour and chocolate tasting;  special retreat day with hiking, cooking presentation and wine tasting. Saturday morning departure.  Final itinerary subject to change.

All meals at Ebbio are served family style and delicious! The menu is vegetarian made with fresh organic produce and includes Chianti wines and extra virgin olive oil prepared from fruits from the property.

Also at the farm is a dunking pool made from an old oversized wine barrel, horse back riding, hiking trails and breathtaking scenery.
