Accommodation and Facilities

The retreat centre is set in 2.5 acres of grounds in a valley filled with olive and almond groves. Accommodation consists of seven twin bedrooms all with private en-suite bathrooms. All rooms have been renovated to a high standard using locally sourced materials, and are aiming to create a luxurious yet simple and understated feel. A large outdoor courtyard provides the main communal eating space, and several outdoor terraces offer a place to relax in the sun or the shade. Situated at the heart of the complex, the swimming pool acts like a colourful meeting point – with the blue water combining with the green olive trees and the red soil.

The international airport at Brindisi is approximately 40 minutes drive away and Bari is further to the north approximately 55 minutes drive. Ryanair has direct flights from Dublin to both airports. Hiring a car in Puglia is relatively inexpensive and provides a great way to explore the surrounding countryside, local historical towns and beaches. Both Bari and Brindisi airports have a large selection of hire car companies including Avis and Hertz. It is recommended to book a car before your arrival. Alternatively, YogaPulia can arrange a taxi to collect you on your arrival.
