About this trip


Join Laina Florio & Marcie Costello for 7 nights in the beautiful countryside of Umbria, Italy at Locanda del Gallo, a luxury private villa which sits atop the magnificent hills of unspoiled Italian landscape. Imaging 29 acres of lush beauty, making this the ideal place to retreat, discover, and revitalize your spirit. Enjoy numerous planned excursions to immerse yourself in the magic of Italy, along with soul coaching workshops, yoga, meditation and so much more! Designed as a holistic experience for up to 15 guests, the carefully designed schedule has been created to focus on your wellbeing and how to best create a more balanced lifestyle with small steps that make a significant difference.



Accommodations

Simple, luxurious and elegant - the charming rooms at the Locanda have exquisite reclaimed doors and carved hardwood furniture from Bali and Indonesia, soft cotton bedding, plush comforters and an at-home feeling.  


Locanda del Gallo commands beautiful views over its 28 hectares (69 acres) of gardens, terraced lawns and woodlands. Stroll at your leisure through the olive grove, inhale the scent of roses and herbs, or simply curl up with a book under the shade of an old elm tree. The gardens hold many hidden gems and secret corners for you to discover. Walls of stone aged by the centuries. Gardens of manicured lawns and olive trees. The scent of lavender and rosemary filling the air. A swimming pool kissed by sunlight. Numerous paths running through woods, down to the stream in the valley below. Aperitifs sipped on a verandah watching the setting sun. Candle-lit dinners, and calm nights under a star filled sky. All around, just beyond the hills stand Umbria’s many cities of art, abundant in their treasures, their elegant shops and traditions. Enjoy the ecological chlorine-free swimming pool, encircled by comfortable sun loungers and Jacuzzi. Or descend a few steps and enter the small Moorish style spa, let your tensions slip away in the Turkish bath and then immerse yourself in a cloud of cool, refreshing, mint scented water. Sip a tisane (tea), read a book, or revive yourself with a massage. All rooms have large windows that open up to stunning views of the Umbrian hillside. 

Food

Three delicious Italian inspired meals a day - including vegetables, produce and herbs from the garden. Traditional Italian food served with a healthy, modern twist. Dietary restrictions can be accommodated.  Feel free to order delicious wine from Locanda’s winery! 

Workshops, Yoga & Meditation

Yoga & Meditation: Marcie will lead the morning yoga classes. Marcie helps students deepen their practice through specific alignment and breath-work. Marcie has trained in and teaches Hatha with Iyengar influence, Vinyasa, Restorative/Yin, SUP and Aerial yoga. She strives to embrace the inner connection of body, mind and breath through movement and safe alignment. Whether you’re a beginner or seasoned yogi, you’ll feel supported and challenged with different levels of modifications in each class. 


Workshops: Laina will be leading her “Awaken Your Inner Light” Program designed to support you in living a more inspired, purpose driven life. We will explore what Soul Consciousness means and how you can begin living from this place, rather than getting lost within the constructs of the limited mind. You will gain more clarity on your purpose, and release limiting beliefs and situations that are holding you back from living your life in a more inspired, purposeful and joyful way. Laina holds a Masters Degree in Spiritual Psychology and Consciousness, Health & Healing and has been coaching clients, retreats and workshops for over 10 years. You will be supported and guided in a safe, nurturing space. 


In between classes, you’ll have plenty of time for relaxing, going on excursions, and enjoying the beauty of Locanda Del Gallo.

Reviews

I had a wonderful time, better than I expected! Great location, food was AMAZING, the trip was well planned out, I just had to show up. Marcie led the best yoga classes I’ve ever taken, and Laina’s workshops were highly transformational, supportive and gentle. I made new friends for life. We loved the surprises along the way. I can’t thank them enough and want to come back!
