About this Retreat

Reveal the innate goodness and radiant health that is the essence of life.

Light, air and lightness, this is what you will feel after this retreat.

Indulge yourself on this retreat and wish for everything you could possibly desire. You will return home deliriously happy and liberated

Hosted in a pure feel-good ambience in the hills of the Val d’Orcia, Tuscany, our resort, The ADLER Spa Resort THERMAE, blends harmoniously into the Tuscan landscape. Lots of light and high-quality natural materials create a liberated feeling.

The water of our thermal pool contains bicarbonate and sulphate and is a balmy 36°. This high temperature enhances its healing effects on the bones, skin and joints. The thermal pool also offers a spectacular view of the Tuscan countryside and a range of whirlpool features. 

After an invigorating yoga class or a dedicated Ayurveda workshop, relax in the warm rooms or outdoors in the sunshine. The loungers, swings and water beds in the cozy relaxation zones make a comforting place for dreaming. 

Rediscover the freedom of movement and the well-being of the whole body with Anusara Yoga teacher Natalie Piet.

Anusara is a branch of Hatha yoga that uniquely integrates deep spiritual teachings and precise principles of alignment into the practice.  At the heart of Anusara Yoga are its life-affirming principles of “Opening to Grace” and “Aligning with the Divine.” Its emphasis on the embodiment of Grace and its profound philosophical teachings are designed to open the practitioner’s heart to life’s possibilities, creating vibrancy of body, mind and spirit.  As such, Anusara Yoga becomes an alignment guide for our life, on and off the mat.

Natalie will help you delving deep within to reveal the innate goodness and radiant health that is the essence of life. She will weave an inspirational heart theme into each class, which helps students connect the physical practice with a deep feeling of self-honoring, safety, community, devotion and love.

San Gimignano

While many visit San Gimignano for a very short time, there is plenty to do to keep you busy an entire day if not more!

A stroll down the entire town is required, as well as a visit to the Duomo di San Gimignano and to the adjacent Palazzo Comunale to view the Pinacoteca of Medieval art inside and a climb to the very top of the Torre Grossa, the tallest tower in town, to enjoy the best view of San Gimignano ever!

Enjoy a great gelato in Piazza della Cisterna, a delicious lunch or dinner at the many restaurants specialized in Tuscan cuisine and a climb up to the remains of the Montestaffoli fortress and lots of tastings of the local white wine, Vernaccia di San Gimignano, will round up your visit.

Pienza

The UNESCO World Heritage Site was built by Pope Pius II. 

The cathedral square and two magnificent palazzi form the heart of the building. Sample the popular “Pecorino” sheep’s cheese – delicious, especially with honey or jam. 

Chapel Vitaleta: Tiny, secluded chapel framed by cypress trees with striking views of the surrounding countryside.
