THE LOCATION


Staying at the gorgeous farmhouse at Danena, southern Sicily,

you will be surrounded by nature and wild rugged terrain, yet minutes

from the beach.

 

Danena Sicily is a one-hour drive south from Catania airport,

on the island’s east coast. On a country lane away from noise and neighbours, it’s just 10 minutes south from the unspoilt World Heritage town of Noto – one of Italy’s most beautiful historic centres.  A 10-minute drive east is the Nature Reserve of Vendicari, a heaven of wildlife and some of the island’s most beautiful and deserted golden-sand beaches.

 

The time will be yours to explore by bike or on foot, swim in the clear waters of coves nearby or simply relax by the pool. With a maximum of only 10 guests, this means there will be plenty of space for you around Danena and, if you choose to take the yoga classes, you will receive lots of one-on-one attention from Sophia - great for injury recovery or just helping to better relax on holiday.

Receive tailored dietary guidance from a Nutritional Therapist in a personal

90 minute consultation during your stay.

Many of us lead very busy, hectic lives in stressful environments which can make it hard to make dietary choices and lifestyle changes that nourish our bodies and our minds. 

 

In the course of this week you will have access to interactive health and nutrition workshops workshops with a nutritional therapist.

You can also choose to book a session & create your own health plan to support you in optimising your health.

This will focus on realistic, manageable steps that you can take on your path to greater wellness - increasing energy levels, reducing stress, supporting improved mood and banishing those extra pounds. 

The aim is to inspire you with a personal plan of action to enable you continue the positive changes of the retreat so that you return to daily life feeling rejuvenated and revitalised.
