Are you a yoga teacher?
Are you looking for a relaxing, quiet and beautiful location on the country side with delicious Italian food in the middle of nature? Here you are....
Why should you hold your yoga retreat with us? This is why....
Our unique location is only 1 hour's drive from airports of Milan and Turin. We are in the Monferrato, which is part of the region of Piedmont in northern Italy, one of the most famous Italian wine regions in the world and famous for its white truffles, which grow wildly and cannot be reproduced.
Country House Montessino is located in a small hamlet on top of one of the rolling hills of the Monferrato, since 2014 Unesco World Heritage Site. We are immersed in nature and surrounded by sunflower and wheat fields and of course wine grapes with a wonderful view. Silence for meditation and tranquility is guaranteed. The Monferrato is still a piece of authentic Italy, without mass tourism and with very few individual tourists. An area waiting to be discovered. Here you feel grounded, connected to nature. (and by the way the background foto is original!)
The former riding stable houses a beautiful, heatable yoga room with panoramic windows and wooden floor. There is space for 16 yoga mats. 10 yoga mats, 12 blocks, yoga belts and blankets are available.
The Zen island lies in the middle of an open field on the ridge of the hill. A marvelous place for meditation.
The Country House, Group size
We have 6 carefully renovated double rooms, all with ensuite bathrooms, some with a balcony and wonderful view. For long stays of 4-7 nights, you can additionally make use of our separate cottage, with two bedrooms and 1 bathroom, which is opposite the B&B (4-6 people). The maximum group size is 16 people, minimum 8 participants. Country House Montessino is surrounded by 3 hectares of land with olive groves, meadows, and wine grapes. In our garden, there's an outdoor saltwater pool and an outdoor jacuzzi. The former converted riding stable houses beside the yoga room, a massage room, a fitness room, and a Sauna. All with large windows in order to stay connected with nature.
The homemade, healthy, vegetarian brunch with oriental, Italian, and European specialties is normally taken on our sunny terrace or in the breakfast room. In the evening you can enjoy original Monferrine cuisine at selected restaurants nearby (by own car) or with a rented bus (€ 10 / person). Of course, an original pizza evening should not be missing. Depending on the length of the retreat, on some evenings we cook for your group, simple Italian, vegetarian country cuisine accompanied by local wine. Fresh fruit, mineral water and tea are available all day for free. Should someone still feel hungry, we are happy to rustle up delicious salad plates, cheese platters or caprese.
In order to get to know some of local Italian culture, we combine the short journey to the restaurants with one or the other visit (churches, viewpoints, infernot) or we simply stroll through the medieval villages. During the whole retreat, you will be personally accompanied for translations, explanations, etc. by the multilingual (IT, DE, EN, FR) owner of Country House Montessino.
