Introducing SlowLane Tuscany Retreat 2023

After searching the world to find a space that resonates with our SlowLane vibes, we are stoked to share details on the SlowLane Tuscany Retreat 2023 and would love for you to join us.

An intimate retreat with a maximum of 10 people, we will have sole use of the property “Maraviglia’’ being their only guests. This retreat has been designed for anyone who wants to embrace a slowing down, an unwinding and an unplugging from the demands of regular life. Imagine starting your day with a morning yoga class, followed by a leisurely brunch with likeminded people, an afternoon of chilling and reading by the pool, an early evening restorative yoga class followed by a delicious dinner and a killer Tuscan sunset. We don’t think it gets much better…
