This retreat will take place at La Pescaia Resort, Maremma. This historic Tolomei family estate is an ancient pearl of Tuscany. The property is surrounded by century-old olive trees, pristine forests, and hidden paths for lovers of trekking, horseback riding, and mountain biking.

The region offers a mixture of ancient civilizations, enduring local traditions, lush landscapes, and numerous nature reserves. Each visit to the Maremma is a new experience with new discoveries.

There are long stretches of fully equipped beaches of fine sand accompanied by lush pine forests, tiny coves with sweet sounding names and crystal-clear water, deserted beaches against natural havens, uncontaminated islands in an enchanted sea, villages, and castles that are austere and festive at the same time, gentle landscapes brimming with history and natural wonders.

You will have 150 hectares of resort land to explore and you can rest in the shade of large olive tree on top of hills or sit next to an ancient thousand year old Etruscan tomb. Right before your eyes is the magnificent view of the Maremma plains designed by immense golden fields, dark rows of cypress trees, and umbrella pines.

All around on top of the high hills of the forest, old towns with typical Tuscan architecture sit as the guardians of these places, and are suspended in time! Not far from the sea and the wild beaches of the Tuscan coast, you can find the Maremma National Park and dozens of tiny villages with charming squares full of history and ancient architecture.

Less than an hour away, you will find several golf courses, interesting archaeological sites, spas, excellent restaurants, and many wineries.

You will be served three daily nutritious meals along with snacks, and tea during the program. The food is combined and prepared to activate the purification process, to strengthen the immune system, enrich the gut flora, lower inflammation, cleanse, and increase energy in your body. The ingredients are chosen for offering a larger variety of flavors, colors, nutrients, antioxidants, and nutrients to mineralize the body.

Ingredients will be organic or freshly picked from the garden. Simple carbohydrates and sugars, gluten, and dairy products will be cut off at this time. Valentina will teach the principals of healthy nutrition, explain, and provide you with the recipes.
