“Italy is a dream that keeps returning for the rest of your life.”
What better place to let your dreams soar, than in the hills of Tuscany!
Get ready for a week of amazing hikes and views – great food (some of which you will learn to cook yourself!) – wine and olive oil tastings – daily guided meditations, visualizations and journaling prompts…
All designed to help you purposefully explore your beliefs, thoughts, feelings and heart’s desires to see if they are congruent with the life you are living...
And return home ready to make those dreams a reality!
From the foothills of the Alpe di Catenaia, to the castle of Montauto.
Our first two nights are at the Locanda del Viandante (the traveler’s inn) once a working farm, with amazing views of the Tiber valley.
We’ll start our mornings with a guided meditation, followed by a leisurely breakfast. Then, we’ll hit the trail and get that heart-rate up as we climb the hills to enjoy those spectacular views!
Our afternoons, include discussions and prompts with down-time to write and reflect.
And our first “aperitivo” (cocktail) together will be at my house!
On our third day, we hike to Valle di Sopra (the Upper Valley,) another beautifully restored farmhouse, stopping for lunch along the trail.
And never fear, we will make good use of that massive kitchen, making our own pasta, guided by Donatella. And of course we will eat the fruits of our labor!
The next morning, after our daily meditation, discussion and breakfast, we’ll hike to the Castle of Montauto, returning in the afternoon, for a little more relaxation and great conversation.
In the evening, we’ll visit the charming town of Anghiari, so you can do a little obligatory exploring and shopping, followed by dinner in town…including a sommelier-guided wine tasting.
Our final day will be a special one, including a hike with more spectacular views, great company with your new-found friends, declarations of new dreams and goals and a dinner party fit for royalty!
Our final destination, the magical Casina della Burraia (the creamery) is a working farm and stables – with organic gardens. And the rooms are lit by candle-light! (but don’t worry, the bathrooms have lights and sockets to charge your phone!)
The best part? Eliana, who is an amazing cook and wonderful host!

What our guests say:
"I learned how valuable it is to step away from my daily routine in order to recognize how chaotic and stressed my life can become. I learned that strangers could become friends in the blink of an eye. The positive power of the group gave my desires wings to soar... I can’t wait to treat myself to the luxury of another Wild Things Retreat!!” Therese Bouchet
