Retreats in Lombardy

A collection of wellbeing retreats in the land of contrasts and breathtaking landscapes- home of the Alps and lowlands, covered by shimmering mirrors of water and green rice paddies.

Bordering with Switzerland, Lombardy is a prime destination for a wellness retreat. Living up to a legacy of breath-taking landscapes and a chain of lovely lakes, Lake Como with all its famed beauty draws in round, curious eyes while Lake Garda and Lake Maggiore earn aesthetic adoration far and wide. The defining features of this region stretch beyond the lakes to the unrivalled beauty of the lakefront villas. Emerging from the rich surrounding landscapes complete with green forestry and rolling mountain slopes, getting up from the sun-loungers to venture into the great outdoors has never been more understandable.

Types of retreats in Lombardy

Walking and activity retreats

Kick those legs high and stretch those arms wide on a walking and activity retreat, stirring up a sweat. At times, having the feet curled under the table and eyes and hands pasted to our computers and smartphones can feel restrictive and suppressive. So what better way to find relief from the situation than out and about, shuffling along the bendy curves of trekking lanes, drawing lungful of crisp, clean air on a short weekend break?

Yoga retreats

From restorative Vinyasa Flow Yoga to Jiriki, Jivamukti and energising Ashtanga, choose a yoga style of your preferred choice and begin your balance journey on a yoga retreat. Intended for the individual looking to take time away from the clamouring chimes of the everyday to relax and reconfigure the mind, body and soul through yoga, a yoga retreat is best enjoyed in the outdoors with the skittering of birds and whispers of a passing breeze.


Meditation retreats

Heal the mind and soul in deep meditation and restore a true sense of self on a meditation retreat. Relax the body and mind and be released from the physical tensions and aches that may have been induced through stress, anxiety and depression. Relearn the techniques of calm breathing to reconnect with your true self and affirm purpose, goals and dreams.
