Our quiet end of the valley is the perfect spot to relax on a yoga holiday. Tucked away from the hubbub yet only 40 minute drive from Perugia airport, the old Tobacco Tower is ideal for small groups to enjoy and practice yoga. With magnificent sunrises and sunsets, the lush rolling green Umbrian hills are the perfect backdrop to enjoy the peace and quiet and meditate.
The downstairs area of the tower has plenty of space for individual or small or medium size sessions and if you fancy wandering off into the landscaped gardens there are plenty of spots to pause and enjoy. The minstrels gallery opens out over a little bridge and leads to your own swimming pool surrounded by vines and breathtaking views.
Wander a little further and you’ll find the garden leads to a grassy natural amphitheatre with a superb unspoilt vista to the end of the valley. Each of the three finely styled double bedrooms holds their own perspective of the valley; waking up is simply a joy. As the sun passes over the valley during the day the gradually changing shadows create a unique perspective on the verdant hills, with the highest town of Monte Santa Maria perched on its peak two valleys away glowing in the afternoon and evening light.
Our guest yoga teacher Steve Shorney is founder of the popular Mila Yoga Café in Godalming UK.
