We will be staying in the beautiful region of Tuscany where the land offers all that is needed to soothe the soul, ground the mind and connect both in abundance, beauty and simplicity. .
Capolona is a small picturesque town located in the beautiful region of Italy, Tuscany. Positioned on the right bank of the Arno river, adjacent to the historical town of Arezzo, Capolona can be truly considered a gateway to the Casentino area. The town enjoys a great positioning at the junction of Casentino and Valdarno valleys, a location which conditioned it to become a major center for the relations between Florence and Arezzo throughout time.
A serene and charming little town, Capolona is located at an altitude of 263 metres above sea level and has approximatively 5000 inhabitants. The Municipal territory of Capolona covers an area of 47,37 square kilometres in the Valdarno area of Arezzo on the borders of Pratomagno. Its history goes back in medieval times, as it was founded around the 10th century, reaching its current form in 1845. This is the time when the village of Lorenzano which was part of the municipality of Castel Focognano, and the village of Baciano formerly included in the Subbiano Municipality, were annexed here, along with other territories that belonged to the municipality of Talla.
The entire area of Capolona is dotted with ancient fortresses, medieval castles, century-old bridges and churches, testimony to the great historic importance of the area since medieval times. Nearby to the current main square of Capolona there was a Roman bridge, bombed during the World War II, which certifies the fact that the site of Capolana might have been a great communication network in Roman times, yet there are no historical documents to prove the foundation of a Roman settlement on this territory.
The medieval country House where you'll stay is named HOUSE ON THE ROCK because it was built on a part of the Casentino's mountain. Historic documents describe it at a Camaldolese Monastry in the XI A.C.
Many architectural featuresand details prove this origin. It was only natural to turn Monasterial hospitality into a warm is to be a warm and cozy home where you can find comfort and relaxation along the famous VIA ROMEA.

Merge into Essential Lifestyle
Elevate Your Perception
Welcome Abundant Riches
There is no greater space to teach about essential lifestyle than one built with the very principles of timelessness, artistry and esthetic balance.
This retreat is focused on the principles of acceptance rather than resistance and remembering our true nature rather than adding new knowledge and confuse the mind.
What if all that was ever needed to be content and fulfilled was here and now? What if the only missing link to happiness was so simple that it is easy to miss?
Enjoyment, togetherness, laughters, connection and living fully without stealing any goodness from each moment is how this week offers you.
Mindfulness is at the core of this Italian experience and we will dive into it from the moment you step foot on Italian soil. Each soul strategy session has been designed to help you shift your perception so that you learn to elevate your consciousness and transform a challenge into an opportunity.
With its rolling hills and its nurturing soil, Tuscany grows more richness than many other places in the world. Knowing how to harness these soils and harvest the bounties of goods it shares is an art. This art, we will learn it for our own self so that we can use it everywhere we go to nurture our own self.
What is good for our body? What feels aligned with our truth? What do I truly need? How can I best support myself? These are examples of essential questions that we will learn to ask ourselves. Our mind is a fertile soil that requires attention, boundaries, care and adaptability. It is all about the power of listening, trusting our own self, honoring our truth and acting from a place of self-love and self-acceptance. At times, this may mean learning to let go and let live.
