Cultural and inspirational retreat
A millennial Mediterranean human history
I found the values, feelings, dialogues, and friendships that we thought we had lost, in Sicily, in a world that not everyone thinks about discovering.
The world of artisans took me on such a journey that it was as if I had rediscovered myself, this is a clean, and pure journey. I met such experienced and cultured craftsmen that I decided to organize these retreats because I wanted to share what I experienced, felt and saw with conscious travellers.

Journey through the past to the most beautiful and unknown Sicilian towns
Breakfast prepared with organic products while the sounds of birds fill your ears.
We are starting another day where we will enrich our souls. We will take a look at the mysterious life style of small places that have not lost their essence, away from the chaos of busy tourism regions, and touch the real Sicily.
After a little tour that you will never forget, lunch will be waiting for us in a farmhouse in nature. Of course, all products are self-prepared, organic and local.
We will continue on our way to the second pearl town, which is one of the most beautiful Baroque cities in Europe under the protection of UNESCO. You will feel like time has stopped while visiting the most original craft workshops.
Another feature of this pearly place is that it is one of the pioneers of the slow food movement in Italy. We will have a small visit in the 150-year-old sweet land, one of the most famous patisseries in Italy.
After this fairy tale day, we will return to our place in nature and rest, have dinner and relax.

sunday, 1st october
Breakfast in nature.
On the last day of our soul enrichment journey between the past and the present, perhaps today is one of the days when you will feel Sicily the most intensely!
We will visit a very special place where history, art and the environment are intertwined. How about after leaving the unusualness of this delicate place and smelling some Baroque air? A nice visit to a place that perhaps is not thought of by every tourist, where all the attention will be devoted to you while enriching our world of general culture.
As the noon hour is approaching, you go from one world to another and have lunch with the feeling of festivity at a table surrounded by the freshest and natural products.
The last activity of the day will be a journey to the mysterious world of Sicily's climate and vegetation, accompanied by a nature walk, of course, with a professional guide.
Home made dinner and relax.
