THE VENUE, LOCATION & ACCOMMODATION
We have booked a lovely venue in the heart of the picturesque seaside town of Cefalù. With spacious apartments all with kitchenette/diners and ensuite bathrooms the setting for our accommodation really does have the ‘wow’ factor! Step onto our rooftop terrace where we’ll be practicing the yoga and you’ll be hard pushed to remain focused with the views of the sea and the surrounding delights!
We’ll be overlooking the square which houses the imposing Duomo, a stunning 12th century cathedral. Towering above is the Rocca, a massive hill, well worth the steep climb to see the Norman fortifications, said also to be home to mythical giants!
We’ll be just off the main street, Corso Ruggero, where we’ll join the locals after yoga for the ‘passeggiata’, the evening stroll!
With gorgeous beaches and fantastic restaurants it’s no wonder that director Giuseppe Tornatore chose to set parts of his much-loved film Cinema Paradiso here. Cefalù really is the perfect picture postcard town for a holiday!
Arrivals are at Palermo airport. We will be picked up as a group and whisked away to our magical home form home. We’ll take time to settle in before enjoying a typical Sicilian meal at a local restaurant. You classes start the next day, Sunday.
There’ll be yoga every morning, 8-9.30am (starting on Sunday morning) apart from the day of departure and the day we go to Mt Etna (as it’ll be a super early start) and in the evenings, 5.45-7.15pm apart from on the day we go out to Etna and the evening we have our private dining experience.
During our stay in Sicily, we’ll get taxied over to the other side of this stunningly beautiful island with our guide for a vineyard visit with wine tasting and snacks included. After this we’ll then head over to Mt Etna and experience the most active volcano in Europe! Packed lunch will be included so you can have your lunch on a volcano!
After brunch on one of the days we’ll be taken on a guided walk. We’ll head off on our trek accompanied by our knowledgeable guide who will take us exploring in this picturesque landscape stopping for picnic lunch half way.
Personally we think Sicilian food is the best cuisine in the world! If you’re a fish eater then the abundance of fresh fish and seafood will more than satisfy your appetite. Meat eaters are also catered for too with local meats dishes on the menu. Vegetarians and vegans will not be disappointed either! The local vegetable dishes are mouth waveringly good - the local aubergine dish of ‘caponata’ is a must try, not forgetting ‘arancini’ (stuffed fried rice balls) and the famous ice cream sandwiches!
The local honey and wines are also a real treat!
With regards to meals on this yoga holiday, brunch is included as well as the picnic on our guided walk, packed breakfast and packed lunch on our Mt Etna trip and a private dining experience on our rooftop terrace, when we’ll be catered for by our local professional chefs. We’ll book restaurants for the whole group for the other evenings at places that offer a wide range of meals to suit all budgets.
Lunches can be taken at local cafes or you can prepare a little picnic in your own kitchenette to take down to the beach!
