Yoga on the Amalfi Coast

June Yoga Trip to Italy
6/6/14 - 6/14/14

Join Melanie Fawer and assistant Adrienne Davis for a sumptuous week of yoga, exquisite food and amazing scenery in beautiful Ravello, Italy.

Location: Ravello, Italy
"Perched high on a hilltop overlooking the Amalfi Coast sits Ravello, a medieval village full of winding cobblestone streets, fragrant gardens, and breathtaking views of the Mediterranean. Ravello offers the perfect mix of culture - spectacular churches, villas, and expansive gardens - and complete relaxation in the form of delicious meals and luxurious lodgings with restorative sea views." - Forbes 2013

Hotel: Villa Maria
Rich and interesting is the history of this villa which was Roman noble Marquis de Cinque family's manor, a history which blends with that of Ravello and the Amalfi Coast. The structure, while preserving the elegant forms of a lordly mansion, over the years has undergone noteworthy redecoration which has fashioned its actual splendor. In all of the premises, halls, staircases and public areas it is still possible to admire the antique marble floors and in the rooms and the bathrooms hand painted Vietrese School majolica tiles. Visit the hotel website: http://www.villamaria.it/history-eng.aspx

The Restaurant: Restaurant Villa Maria
Enjoy stunning views, first class cuisine and excellent service at the Restaurant Villa Maria. Chefs utilize the surrounding gardens to prepare opulent meals, paired with local wine. "In our kitchen we utilize mainly our biological garden products. In fact, Villa Maria is surrounded by wonderful terraced gardens where every morning our farmers harvest the biological products (fertilized with humus from near mountains sheep and goats' breeding) which can be savored in our restaurant. Our guest are welcomed to stroll through the gardens and even visit the cave chapel at the end of the gardens."
