The yoga space is truly stunning. Located in the 17th century farmhouse it’s vaulted beams and soaring arch provide a spacious setting for each 2 hour morning vinyasa flow.

“Yes, it’s hot. The sky will be almost permanently blue and the landscape takes on the color of gold. But we are 650 meters above sea level and the mountains that surround us exceed 1500 meters. Therefore the nights will still be cool – you rarely need air conditioning – and on hot days it will be even more pleasant to swim in the pool or take shelter in the shade of our forest. It is also time to pick summer fruit and prepare apricot or plum jam and fruit ice cream. In July, you can watch the wheat harvest and in September you can collect almonds and porcini mushrooms with us. It will be the best moment to eat large, organic, salads from our vegetable garden and enjoy cold, freshly pressed, fruit juices."
