Description

We are beyond excited to introduce our Umbria Yoga Retreat this May 21 - 26, 2023. Join State of Salt for an authentic Italian experience with a modern wellness touch.

It has a been a dream for founder of State of Salt, Claudia Wareham to lead a group of yogis through an authentic Italian retreat experience so when we came across Locanda Del Gallo we made dream a reality. 

You can expect morning and afternoon yoga overlooking the Italian countryside, extreme relaxation in our wellness centre with salt water swimming pool, jacuzzi spa and massage facilities. Day trips to Assisi, winery tours, local markets, authentic Italian cooking class preparing our own lunch, eating locally grown produce and drinking vino together at night!

We will send all attendees a 'Know Before You Go' spreadsheet with details about getting there, transfers and all things Umbria.

Meals

We will be enjoying three delicious Italian inspired meals everyday, think traditional Italian food served with a healthy, modern twist. Most of our produce, veggies and herbs will be from the garden at Locanda del Gallo. All dietary restrictions can be accommodated.

We are not opposed to wine at State of Salt, especially on retreat in Umbria... so feel free to order delicious wine from Locanda’s winery or if you purchased from our winery tour at the restored castle you can bring it back to the bnb with you!

Location

The Locanda del Gallo is perched on 28 hectares of gardens, terraced lawns and woodland. The entire villa is restored in traditional boutique farmhouse style immersed in nature. Thick wood combined with the light decor makes for a rustic yet luxurious feel. The grounds are to die for, making the view from your room filled with magical scenery.

There are 10 rooms all with private bathroom, each equally fresh and silent, each different from one another. The furnishings adorning every room were all hand-picked and brought back one by one from many distant journeys made by Paola and Irish, the owners of the Locanda del Gallo. There is no television, nothing to disturb the peace and tranquillity.

Owners Paola Moro and Erich Breuer have put their heart and soul into restoring this old farmhouse into all the glory it is today. Their caring touch is felt in all elements of their farmhouse, from the gourmet food shared in the gorgeous dining room to the cool mint spray designed to be enjoyed after the steam room.

Relaxation Station

Your 'me time'. You'll initially be drawn to the the infinity pool and jacuzzi overlooking the 28 hectares of gardens, but if you descend a few steps you will enter the small Moorish style spa, let your tensions slip away in the Turkish bath and then immerse yourself in a cloud of cool, refreshing, mint scented water, before heading for the peace of the salon overlooking the verdant landscape to sip a tisane, or read a book, or revive yourself under the hands of our masseuse, or all of the above...
