This retreat is for men who love men. 

WE HAVE ONE ROOM LEFT!!  EITHER FOR DOUBLE OR TRIPLE OCCUPANCY! SPECIAL OFFER:  IF THREE PEOPLE BOOK A TRIPLE TOGETHER, SAVE $100 EACH.   If you have any general questions about the trip, please also send us a message via the "ASK A QUESTION" button and we will get back to you.   

Travel arrival and departure information

Flights should be booked to Peretola airport in Florence to arrive on Saturday, June 17, 2023. (Please make sure that your passport is valid and up to date in order to fly).  We have arranged for an airport van to pick up our group at the airport on the 17th.  The van will leave at 2:30pm for Terzo (FYI, the retreat center is not set up for early arrivals.) Please be sure to leave a buffer between your arrival time and the van departure in case of flight delays. On Saturday, June 24th, breakfast is 8am-9am, and the van will leave Terzo around 9:30am.  The van could take 2 up to 3 hours, depending upon traffic, so scheduling a flight around 2pm or after should be fine.  You can arrange your own taxi if you need to get to the airport earlier.

The entire experience was wonderful. Terzo di Danciano is incredibly beautiful. Luca and Kriszti are great hosts, and Sergio is a marvelous chef. The workshops were emotionally and spiritually rewarding.
