Together with our highly trained Pilates instructors, we have put together an active yet relaxing itinerary for our Pilates retreats in Puglia. With tailor-made classes that will match individual needs, our lessons will suit guests of all levels and abilities.  All of our instructors are experts in the Body Control technique – a method of Pilates that focuses on your core – from toning your body to combating back problems, it is suitable for any age or ability.

No Single Supplement

We never charge a single room supplement.

Small & Friendly Groups

Our group sizes are usually between 8 and 10 people.

Sights to savour along with the turquoise sea and long sandy beaches of Puglia include the handsome Baroque cathedral in Otranto, with a mosaic floor to rival Ravenna, and the city of Lecce’s more than 40 churches and a noble palazzo built in the 17th and 18th centuries. South of Lecce, the landscape flattens and the sky opens out.  Acres of olive groves and vineyards extend between dry-stone walls.  The coastline of turquoise sea and red cliffs combine to form a dramatic backdrop – the perfect spot for a week to relax, rejuvenate and improve your Pilates .
