Relax and Self-care Retreat for Women
Time to Unwind and Re-discover Your Own Needs
Nowadays many women suffer from the tension of a busy day-to-day life with work, children, old parents and many other requirements. Very often they don’t have the time anymore to feel themselves, let alone find out what it is that they really need.
And then there are women who like to travel solo, but are happy not being alone once they get to their destination.
That is why Elisabeth and Tina have created the Relax and Self-care Retreat for women.
Imagine starting out every day with a positive energy and being allowed to solely focus on your needs and desires in a circle of like-minded women...
A perfect venue to experience this is the former oil press “La Ribolla” located in the essential southern part of Tuscany and the best time is either in spring or in fall.
In the rural seclusion of the wilderness, you have the chance to reconnect with your soul and become reacquainted with yourself again.
In an exclusive circle of four to six women, you will enjoy rituals and meditations and learn methods to create your own self-care routine, one that is easily integrated in your everyday life once you get back home.
There will also be enough time for excursions to the various beaches, the river or the nearby lake as well as exploring the many places of interest in the Maremma, which is how the southern part of Tuscany is called. Of course, you can visit the typical Italian coffee shops, called bars, to enjoy a delicious cup of cappuccino, alone or with the other women chatting, laughing, comparing notes and making friends… or you might choose to stay “at home” enjoying the beautiful scenery.
Every day we will begin with a shared breakfast, followed by our self-care session which is leading us into lunch, that we will prepare together according to the five elements of Chinese medicine under the professional guidance of Elisabeth.
The accommodation is simple yet charming. It is your choice, if you would like to occupy a room by yourself or share a room with another woman. You can either stay with Elisabeth in La Ribolla or in Il Nido with Tina. Take a look at the pictures to get an impression…
Additionally and against extra payment, you are also welcome to indulge in a relaxing Shiatsu massage and/or book a supportive coaching session with Tina to alleviate an issue that is concerning you or you want support with.

We will help you to create your own unique self-care routine depending on your preferences, your time frame and your needs. You will be able to implement this routine easily into your day once you get back home, if you choose to do so. This will allow you to connect quickly with yourself, others and to what is really important to you on a physical, mental and soul level… with all your senses… even while going through a hectic, busy life.

Start at 8 am
