The Masseria is a stunning and impressive example of a traditional Pugliese farmhouse, constructed in local limestone by wealthy landowners at the beginning of the 18th century. Lovingly and respectfully restored by its British owners, wonderful original features abound, such as the fabulous vaulted communal rooms on the ground floor, whilst all rooms have been decorated, furnished and equipped to offer guests every modern comfort in simple and elegant style.

The main kitchen, dining room and two vast sitting rooms are located on the ground floor, the kitchen leading out onto a large, shaded terrace with a lovely view over the gardens to the pool and trulli. A perfect place for those delicious barbecues and, for cooler times of the year, guests can enjoy a huge open log fire in one of the sitting rooms.

Upstairs accommodation comprises an elegant 4-bedroom apartment and a stylish 2-bedroom apartment, linked at the rear by a terrace with sweeping views of the surrounding countryside (part of the masseria estate). The stylish and traditional accommodation and grounds are vast, allowing you space between activities and room to wander and reflect. It has a singular ambience; a sense of calm and quiet beauty that encourages study, self-development and contemplation.

On these retreats, Chillout Retreats international experts will be teaching traditional Hatha yoga fused with Vinyasa flow which is strong, powerful and rejuvenating and covers many of the well-known and popular asanas. Yoga teaches us how to relax and restore the own power within your bodies whilst stilling the mind at the same time. You can expect to work strongly, smoothly and develop a deep sense of awareness in these classes.

Aside from the yoga classes, there will also be a few Pilates classes available to help strengthen your core, improve posture and protect your spine. The lessons are suitable for any ability and will raise your heartbeat and strengthen you from your very core, they are also designed to aid the elimination process. A prefect way to renew yourself.

Meditation

By quieting the chattering mind and developing loving kindness, you can really be open to experience what is going on in the present. How much time do you spend thinking about the past or the future without actually living and breathing each precious moment now? After all we cannot change the past nor predict the future but we can shape our present.

Meditation is now well regarded as a life skill. As you use yoga or Pilates to strengthen and exercise your body, you can use meditation to strengthen and gain control of your brain and mind. After all, it is a muscle too. It is a tool that can help aid concentration, sharpen the senses and inspire minds. The beauty in even the smallest thing can be appreciated after only a few meditation sessions.

During this retreat, you will learn different meditation techniques and practices that can be used everyday, such as the mindfulness of breathing, the Metta Bhavana, chakra balancing and walking meditations. Once you have learnt how to calm the mind you can meditate anywhere, in the bath, on the tube or whilst out walking. Even the most active minds needs a rest and without too much effort, so much can be achieved.

The cuisine on retreat is detox-orientated, nutritionally balanced and well thought out to provide you with enough vital vitamins, minerals and energy to keep you tip-top throughout your stay. Toxins in the body result from poor diet, stress, pollution, drug use, the water you drink and environmental exposure. The body tends to accumulate impurities from many different sources including food additives, pesticides, vehicle exhaust fumes, medical drug residues and internal body processes. If you are distressed, under par or overweight, the natural elimination of these waste products may be too slow for the body in the long term. This is why Chillout Retreats help to kick start a healthier lifestyle whilst on retreat and their detox cuisine helps to cleanse to help your system enabling it to cope with the daily demands placed on it.

Most importantly Chillout Retreats can cater for all intolerances and allergies. They always have wheat-free, gluten and dairy free options. All of their dishes are vegetarian. They have an onsite food enthusiast, Lucie who will freshly prepare all breakfasts, lunches and dinners on the majority of their retreats. She is passionate about food and creates the heartiest dishes that are considerate to body and mind.
