Live Well

 

Healthful food, with a touch of Italian indulgence, is part of the retreat experience, including all breakfasts, most lunches and dinners daily, with an opportunity to also experience food from nearby towns. 

The cuisine is simple and delicious using fresh ingredients from the local markets prepared by our personal chef. Selection is seasonal, and you can guarantee to love and appreciate each bite.

Guests will also get to learn more about the region's fare on a food class and wine-tasting in the surrounding wine region, where some of Italy's most famous vintages are produced.
