Situated South of Italy at “the foot of the boot”, Sicily is the largest island surrounded by Mediterranean sea. Teeming in cultural treasures and often referred to as the pearl of Italy, it is vibrant throughout both day and night. At every turn, be distracted by curiosity for this Italian island of wonder, a true gem to escape the ordinary, relish in amazement and great for shying away from the city crowds.
Escape to Sicily for a taste of the Mediterranean in the absence of rush and haste. Fascination behind this Italian island extends beyond the jewel-blue sea and uncontaminated aromas, scents and flavours. The intense and vibrant sceneries seep into the hearts and minds of individuals from the very first breath and will leave an irresistible urge to return back for more.
From the mountains, hills and sea to the wines, pastries and cheeses, Sicily is a highly sought after destination for breaking free from the mundane ordinary to be engrossed in relaxation and tranquillity through its enchanting natural landscapes and warm climates. The thermal spas are a regional highlight and a true wellness offering to deliver various treatments ranging from therapeutic, rejuvenation, reenergising and beautifying. Thermal spas are utilised as a natural medicinal cure with results proven to extend to the Roman ages.
Incorporated with the traditional art, history and culture, the running thrill of the sea and wind makes Sicily a place like no other, making it an irresistible gem of wellness throughout the year, perfect for a weekend city break to restore physical, spiritual and mental realignment in waves of calm and serenity.
A retreat and a holiday are mistakenly assumed as the same. Yet despite sharing similar definitions, the approaches and results vary greatly. A retreat refers to boarding an immersive and unique experience held at some of the world’s most exclusive and luxurious destinations and resorts, such as Sicily to help individuals cultivate a balanced lifestyle while providing them with the essential tools to maintain this lifestyle at home.
If enjoying good weather besides a spring water swimming pool, indulging and nourishing the body with meals made from organic ingredients sourced from the estate farms is the idea, consider a retreat to Sicily. With glorious rays of sunshine throughout the year and seductive scenery to take you away from the ordinary and autonomous routine, Sicily awaits.
With a strikingly intriguing history shared with the Romans and Greeks and cultural landscapes boasting a warm and romantic ambience, Sicily is a combination of contemporary Italy mixed with streaks of its pastime. Also renowned for its flourishing wine production, wines are a beautifully silent staple with meals whilst vineyards are an embedded garden structure.
Each wellbeing retreat offers a new opportunity to experience the unforgettable and ascertain new insight and fresh perspectives. Discover the art and science of yoga whilst honing your skills in the practice while enjoying the splendour of Sicily to begin your new balanced journey.
