Our Food. Organic & Italian. Of course.
"Life is too short. I'd much rather eat pasta and drink wine than be a size 0." - Sophia Bush
La Dolce Vita Yoga Holiday Retreat is also an unforgettable culinary experience.
Healthy, tasty & organic, these are the key words for the delicious vegetarian meals made by our wonderful local cook.
As we are in Tuscany, we do indulge in local cheeses, pasta, home-made bread, wines and other delights, so although our menu is not a strict cleanse, we do offer plenty of vegetables, seeds, legumes, salad, quinoa, fresh fruit picked up from our trees and yogurt.
Organic wine, extra virgin olive oil, yogurt, bread and honey are produced in the surrounding agricultural area and they're all served during our retreat. We do offer plenty of gluten free and vegan options as well.

It is followed by a visit to the canteen where all the wooden wine barrels are for a step by step explanation on how those grapes become wine and get into those bottles.
Finally, the tasting part - at sunset time on a spectacular outdoor table in the countryside, we try the red, the rose and the white...
