Amalfi June 10-17, 2018
Heart & Soul
Ciao Amici, Are you...
LOOKING FOR PARADISE?
Well, I’ve found it and want to share it with you!
Come experience a retreat like none other on the famous “Green Island!” Right next to the more famous Isle of Capri, the greener sister Island of Ischia (pronounced Iss-Key-Ah) has a more natural, untouched feel. As one of the world’s first health spa destinations, Italians (and Romans, before that) in the know would flock to Ischia to indulge in its mineral-rich volcanic mud and waters. Today, Italian Doctors literally prescribe time here to reap the benefits of bathing in the healing springs. Just off the Amalfi Coast, Ischia boasts natural wonders such a dormant volcano, lush gardens, thermal spas, clear beaches, ancient ruins, and endless views across the Bay of Naples.
We will hold twice daily yoga classes in one of two amazing yoga spaces (one indoor and one outdoor), both overlooking the sea and lush vegetation. The morning and evening yoga classes will be held either on the outdoor platform overlooking the thermal pool, beach and island of Capri, or in the spacious and comfortable “Sala di yoga” (Yoga Studio).
But we will enjoy so much more than just yoga! We will visit ancient port villages (such as the picturesque Castello Aragonese). Enjoy artisanal shopping. Look for the famous thermal mud bath treatments, rucolino liquors, lemon candies, or the handmade designer clothing. We will watch the sun rise from our private balconies, and enjoy a hike through the mountainside to have a full body mud treatment under an ancient Roman Aqueduct, have a playful boat ride to the natural thermal seaside caves of Baia di Sorgeto. Live in the lovely town of Sant’ Angelo and spend a day at one of Ischia’s popular thermal spa parks where you can hop from pool to thermal pool experiencing various temperatures, ancient therapy techniques, and opt for some treatments like a massage or facial. The week will end with an exciting boat ride around Ischia, where we will see the hidden beaches and grottos where we will swim where the romans did and enjoy snorkeling adventures.
In addition to all its natural wonders, one of the most appealing things about Ischia is the hospitality of the people themselves. You’re sure to enjoy the island’s welcome and relaxed way of life during your stay.

WHERE WE STAY
We will be guests at the pristine Il Giardino del Nonno, which is situated perfectly on a quiet nestle of olive trees and overlooks the Mediterranean. Soak in the incredible pool—filled with the famous thermal waters from an aquifer 150 meters below the island. Relax on the panoramic sun decks with breath-taking views.
