Sailing, wine and yoga retreat

Wine is an endless source of inspiration in art, and can be said, in life, in general. It represents an adventure and a kind of journey ... Connect it with the adventure of sailing and you will get a magical exploration of the experience.

Wine is far more than a gloriously preserved grape nectar, which is enjoyed by many wine enthusiasts around the world. This is never a complete story about nature - earth, sun, wind and rain.

Enjoy white, red and rose wines and enhance their taste with local specialties - prosciutto, cheese, olives, honey, as well as the ambiance itself: sounds, smells, landscapes ...

Why

Be in the company of other wine lovers and discover the benefits of the Adriatic coast which has everything you need to balance the body, mind, soul and spirit; intimate and secluded coves and beaches for breathing exercises, long walks, light exercise or yoga with soothing sound of waves and cricket song.

The program is designed to reduce the consequences of everyday stress by achieving an internal balance.

Explore the distant bay and enjoy the stunning shine of the stars and the moon, relax with guided meditation and massage, wake up to the adventurous spirit of sailing and SUP yoga and taste the specialties of Croatia and Dalmatia.
