The October Itinerary


Pack your bags and load up the jalopy for a rolling, rollicking weekend adventure. Here's what we have in store...
(Outdoor activities may be wriggled if the weather sucks)

The Arrival: Stow your tote, scrub your nails and slide into your fancy pants for a pre-festa spritz by the fire. Dress up nice, grazie.

A Tavola: To the table! Panzanella con mozzarella, Filetto di Snapper al cartoccio, Pasta fresca al ragu bianco d’agnello...devour a delicious degustation, carved and charred from the seasons best and seduced by our carefully paired local and international wines.

Body Movin': “Now let me get some action from the back section – we need body rocking not perfection”  – Beastie Boys. Let your spine unwind in a crush groovin’ two hour morning yoga practice with Claire. Hands-on assists by Aly and Bec. They love it (creeps).

The Morning After: Rinse off the sweat and muscle up to the table to refuel your mind and body with an amply abundant brunch.

Idle Hands (Are the devils work):  Jump on a bike, get fresh in nearby waterfalls, hit the pool table or break out the board games. Your time, your rules.

Smashed Abocado:  Get your abwork done in an optional 45 minute core session with Bec. It will be over before you can say, “First home buyer.”

Sticky Fingers: Like any Italian chef worth his Salina di Cervia (translation: noun – fancy sea salt), Marco and Luca grew up rolling gnocchi and ravioli with la famiglia. Push up your sleeves and learn to make your very own authentic pasta. You’ll do your Nonna proud. 

Pagliacciiiii, la cena è pronta! Clownsssss, dinner is ready! Eat the efforts of your labour and brush up on your Italian insults in a rapacious family-style feast. Games after.


Anima/Mahima: "Your deepest presence is in every small contracting and expanding, the two as beautifully balanced and coordinated as bird wings.” – Rumi. Slide into your sweats for a deep, rinsing yoga flow with Rebecca.

Over Easy: “Male, female, gay, straight, legal, illegal, country of origin—who cares? You can either cook an omelet or you can’t. ― Anthony Bourdain. Brunch time. 

Monk Life: Cover up from neck to knee for a dharma talk with the monks at the beautiful Sunnataram Theravada Buddhist Monastery.

Stems Up: As the tastiest stock is built from the bones up, the lightest yoga inversions come from solid roots. So it’s hands down, feet in the air for upside-down play with Claire. 

I Cook with Wine: In the words of American comedian, juggler and writer WC Fields, “I cook with wine, sometimes I even add it to the food.” Turn on your taste buds for our final repast, with post prandial il dolce

Cereal Killers: “But if you’re gonna dine with them cannibals. Sooner or later, darling, you’re gonna get eaten.” – Nick Cave, Cannibal’s Hymn. But not today. Shake yourself loose in a final yoga practice with Aly, and inhale a light brekkie before you roll up your swag and hit the road.

Grazie mille!
