The following two vacation ideas could be classed as relaxing, but that might depend on your point of view, so they feature in our Active Holidays section.
Both the Yoga and Painting breaks are offered by YLTour based in Lecce, Puglia, right at the heel of Italy. They could be combined into one vacation, but are proposed separately.
The yoga weekends or week long breaks are proposed for the Spring and Summer and are located a rustic masseria surrounded by the typical countryside of Puglia.
Your day starts with a first yoga session under the olive oil trees or on the beach, then a breakfast of freshest local products such as fruit, muesli and fresh juice.
You can spend the morning exploring local villages, going to the beach or relaxing by the pool.
The eco-friendly space of the masseria is at your dispositon to relax, pamper yourself with a full body massage, wander about the olive trees, taste healthy Mediterranean natural food, all on your own or in good company.
The dishes served are light and based on vegetables and legumes. Dinner is informal, in the property or in local little restaurants where you will taste the local Negroamaro wine.
