About this trip

Join us for a 6 day escape in Sardinia, where you will experience the Sardinian way to Wabi Sabi through moments of genuine communality with nature, unique sharing experience with locals and hands-on creative workshops. 

One of the most enchanting region of Sardinia, Gallura in the north-east of the island is the ideal setting for an Escape that combines healthy eating and cooking, creative self-exploration, slow living and a bit of adventure.
To host our retreat guests, we have chosen a small complex of country houses surrounded by beautiful granite cliffs, just 3 km from the sea. Close to Palau, one of the main villages along the coast, they are located in a lovely area called “Mascaratu” (“hidden” in Sardinian language), totally immersed in nature and silence.

During this six-day Escape you will learn how to leverage on your intuition, passions and creative thinking to design new solutions to your personal challenges. Through collaborative, hands-on activities you will be encouraged to discover and explore your own strengths and those of other participants.

You will also discover the Sardinian cuisine tradition, which has managed to adapt to change along the centuries while preserving its essence, and you will experience new ways of looking at food, tasting and cooking it by experimenting creatively with it.

There will be also plenty of time to explore the most interesting attractions in the region, relax by the pool or on the beach, have fun at the Padel court and/or practice the outdoor activites you love.

Would you consider it just a “vacation”, a way to take a break from your daily routine? Reclaim it as your own lifestyle, instead.

Nothing lasts, nothing is finished and nothing is perfect, but everything can be redesign, over and over again!

Before You Go

THE WORKSHOP
What does it take to be creative in the kitchen?
How can I recognize “healthy” food, can I trust my intuition?
Can I cook tasty food without following any recipe? What about if I am not a “creative” type?
Cooking is the perfect field laboratory in which to learn how to unlock our creative potential. Being creative at cooking, as well as at any other activities, is not just about having wild ideas: it requires that we develop a research attitude, free up our imagination and develop a prototype mindset. Understand, observe and explore, imagine and build: anyone can successfully apply this process to any sort of challenge.
During this immersive workshop facilitated by Barbara Demuru and Maria Serra, co-founders of Sardinia Escapes, you will learn how to apply creative thinking to food preparation as well to any other aspect of your life.
Expect to be engaged daily in very hands-on activities where you’ll collaborate together, using a plethora of visual tools and, of course, a lot of food!
All you need to bring with you is curiosity and the desire to challenge yourself and be challenged by others. While visualizing ideas and making things with your own hands, we will learn together how to cope with the “unfinished” and even transform failure into a discovery experience.
