We offer a relaxing week long Pilates retreat in Tuscany. All our instructors are qualified at teaching ‘Body Control’ Pilates. They bring with them a wealth of experience and can offer advice and support to guests with a range of needs, to help you get the most out of the week.
It’s official – our Italian Pilates holidays are the best!
We’re thrilled to be included in The Times “50 Best Holidays in Italy” list for 2017! They mention our Pilates & Mindfulness holiday in Tuscany, saying, “New from Flavours Holidays, this trip combines the stretching and toning of Pilates with similarly gentle exercises for the mind.”
The venue was fantastic for Pilates as it had its own studio. Diane is a marvellous teacher and Livia is both a wonderful host and cook.
