About the Ionian Coast 

 

Like no other, the Ionian coast of Sicily is where you will find Mount Etna, baroque palaces, golden beaches and breathtaking landscapes.

Our retreat is located on a former feudal estate set in a deep valley besides a small river, surrounded by olive groves, woodlands and spectacular views of the Etna mountains, this is a uniquely picturesque place for your yoga retreat. 

The jewel of this area is Siracusa where you may step in the Greeks’ footsteps in ancient Neapolis and stroll down the alleys of the picturesque town center of Ortigia.

Further south is the Val di Noto, comprising Noto, Ragusa, Modica, Scicli and Caltagironeis. This is the home to a series of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. These towns epitomize Sicilian Baroque extravagance.  The area’s beauty is matched in magnificence by its delectable cuisine, its animated natives, and a fascinating history.

Our last tour will take us up north to Taormina with mesmerizing views of the Mediterranean Sea and Mt. Etna volcano. Meandering through the chic Corso Umberto’s dazzling array of smart boutiques and antique shops you will discover its late medieval architecture, intimate bougainvillea’s covered piazzas and 15th century Palazzis. Watching the sunset – Aperol Spritz in hand– where are all to be seen and marvel at!
