Summer 2019
Yoga Retreat
In Italy


JUNE 30 - JULY 7, 2019


A week of beauty, practice and fun at Il Tesoro

Il Tesoro is a family-run farm-to-table destination at the crossroads of Tuscany, Lazio, and Umbria. For more than 20 years now, husband and wife Massimo and Rita have been welcoming guests to this hidden treasure in the heart of the Italian countryside.


Daily Yoga Practice

Yoga twice daily led by Gillian. Practices are designed and taught to accommodate students of all skill levels. Classes will be held in a myriad of beautiful locations, including a practice space with floor-to-ceiling windows; in an olive grove; beside a natural spring; and deep in the enchanted forest of Sasseto.


Locally Sourced Meals

Farm-to-table meals are prepared by Il Tesoro’s onsite restaurant, designed around what is in season and the region’s specialities, including pastas, cheeses and olive oil from the farm. Three meals a day and wine with lunch and dinner are included.

Excursions & Activities

Hunt for truffles. Take a cooking class. Sample gelato at Torre Alfina castle. Go shopping in Acquapendente. Tour Civita di Bagnoregio, a 2,500-year-old city. All these activities and more are included, giving you so many opportunities to see the sights and experience the Italian countryside.


Experience the Italian Countryside

A 300-acre agriturismo (working farm), Il Tesoro offers its guests the best of all worlds. The carefully created villa-style accommodations preserve the culture and ambiance of Italy. It’s known for its warm, welcoming staff, high-quality service, attention to detail and scrumptious authentic Italian cuisine.


Rest & Relax

Your home for the week will be a beautiful restored villa, each room with a private bath. There’s tons of personal time set aside every day for you to stroll through verdant gardens, explore the olive groves, read on a quiet patio, nap in a hammock, lay by the pool or take a dip in the natural waterfall spring.


Center & Restore

With 10 years of teaching experience and 20 years of practicing yoga, Gillian will bring all of her knowledge and experience to create two unique classes each day: a morning class to energize you and prepare you for the excursion of the day, and an afternoon/evening class to destress and restore for a good night’s sleep.
