We are delighted to plan all the details and be your hosts. Won't you join us?


The trip was a wonderful experience. Linda and Mark worked so,hard to make sure everyone had a wonderful time. All the people who attended were friendly, interesting and grateful to be a part of the trip. We had wonderful guides for the day trips to Siena and Perugia. The farm was very peaceful and provided excellent meals.

We had such an incredible time on this trip. Mark and Linda fostered a welcoming and fun environment. The trip itself was the perfect blend of fitness, relaxation, and sightseeing. Everything was so thoughtfully organized. The group meals were also a highlight of the trip.

I had a wonderful trip thanks to LindaFit’s wonderful and careful planning of each day. The written directions she had sent and kept updating until the last minute were clear and helpful, the accommodations were comfortable, the yoga/ Pilates and Qigong activities were fantastic, the planned group excursions were interesting and educational, and the food at the retreat was unbelievably good. I truly enjoyed every minute of this trip thanks to Linda and Mark who researched and planned this wonderful vacation for a diverse group of people who enjoyed being together and are still connecting through a group chat. It was one of my best group traveling experiences. Highly recommended!

The trip is an enriching mix of unwinding in a unique Umbria location, interesting guided tours, making wonderful new friends, and, of course, a full dose of pilates and other physical/health/meditation experiences. Mark and Linda research and plan the site and tour options, and commit themselves fully not only to offering pilates but to making it a comfortable and fun experience for everyone. I can't think of how this experience could be better.

What a fantastic experience and adventure in Italy. Linda and Mark did an outstanding job of coordinating a trip that truly fed mind, body and spirit. I traveled with my daughter, and we both enjoyed all aspects of the trip: the company, the excursions, the meet and greet in Florence and the serenity and beauty of the Umbrian countryside at yeh Locanda. Would not hesitate to travel with them again in the future.
