Venue & Accomodation

THE ANCIENT HOUSE

Our home during retreat

We will be hosted at La Selva, a cultural association and organic farm immersed in nature that offers a quiet oasis between the beauties of the Amalfi Coast, nestled within centuries-old olive and lemon trees.

The ancient house overlooks the sea between Positano and Montepertuso, a homestead between the sky and the sea.

Rooms are shared in small groups and accomodation is kept simple, clean, comfortable and authentic. Is important to consider that this is not a luxury resort, it is a place for rest surrounded by nature.

 

Meals

Three daily homemade, organic, seasonal and locally sourced mediterranean style vegetarian meals (except for arrival and departure day).

Fruit and Veg come from La Selva’s garden.
