Tuscany Retreat

Simplicity, Self-Love, and a Whole Lot of Flavahhhhh
August 17-23, 2019

Welcome to your bliss y’all! We are thrilled that you are joining us for this Tuscan adventure. Check out some details below, and we will check in mid summer to grab your flight info etc! Don’t hesitate to email us with questions at and we are happy to help!

Getting there and getting home:

Transport to the villa will pick up from the Florence train station on August 17th in the early afternoon. The exact time will be updated here once we have more details on everyone’s flights since we are basing it all on you! If you choose to arrive a day or two early you may want to book a hotel close to the train station. There are many great options in that neighborhood!

Transportation back to Florence will be on August 23rd in the late morning. Similar to the shuttle to the retreat, we will be basing the time of the shuttle on your travel plans!

Now for the fun stuff…

(If it doesn’t sound fun skip it! Everything is optional!!)

The Yoga - Get ready for some deliciousness! Every day will begin with a pre-breakfast flow to get your mojo moving for the day. We will meet back at the villa to get our zen on for a pre-dinner Yin or Restorative yoga class each afternoon. (Trey’s got some stimulating self-care surprises up his sleeve, but you didn’t hear it from me!) Craving even more yoga? The retreat center’s dedicated yoga shala can also be used for personal practice whenever you would like!

Brushstrokes and Bites - Get your creative juices flowing with a lighthearted painting soiree. Trey will lead us through a sensual mandala painting experience with light apps and bevs as we take in the gorgeous countryside!

Pizza-palooza - With the help of our hosts we will get our hands messy creating our own spectacular pizzas. It’s all about the journey. From tossing dough to choosing tasty toppings the process will be as fun as the results!

Cook what you crave! - Get ready for some passionate love making with your tastebuds. Wow your friends and fam with your amazing cooking! Take home age old Tuscan secrets from the head chef in the beautiful villa kitchen.

Stunning Siena - Take a day trip with us to the romantic 14th century town of Siena. Wander down tiny streets, sip a coffee in the Piazza del Campo, visit the gothic Duomo, climb the 400 steps of Torre del Mangia and marvel at the panoramic view of the city and surrounding countryside.

Drink like a Goddess Wine Tasting- Bring something to wear that makes you feel fabulous, and flaunt it giiiirrrrrrrl! Get busy feeling your finest while you savor the flavors of fine Italian wines.

Or play by the pool, hike on the paths through the villa, or sit around and do a whole lotta nothin’!

And as if that wasn’t enough! Book these yummy extras at your leisure:

  • Massage (one lucky winner will win a 60min massage!)

  • Horseback riding - the neighboring villa can set you up for a relaxing ride on trails through the hills and groves that surround Locanda Cugnanello

  • Thai Yoga Bodywork with Trey - let Trey get the kinks out with a deluxe Thai Yoga session

Optional pre-trip homework: look at yourself in the mirror and practice letting these words swirl around in your mouth - Locanda Cugnanello, you got this girl, mas vino por favore, I’ll take that by the pool, Fromage(that’s French, but say it anyway!)
