Aggie MacKenzie's Tuscan yoga retreat
For up-to-date information on travel and COVID-19, click here.
The countryside around Tuscany is one of the most romantic landscapes in Italy - all rustic stone farmhouses, sun-baked olive groves, and deep green hills lined with picturesque vineyards. It's a simply magical setting for a fitness break, and that's why we've chosen it as the backdrop for this wonderful new yoga retreat.
We've teamed up with Flavours Holidays to give Prima readers the chance to experience Tuscany's beauty while enjoying daily yoga classes together. You'll be keeping supple and in shape while basking in the Italian sunshine, and there's no need to worry if you're a beginner, as we've designed the programme to be accessible to people of all ages and abilities.
Joining you will be Aggie MacKenzie, who co-starred in How Clean Is Your House? in the early 2000s. The fabulous Scottish television personality will join you throughout your time in Tuscany, where she'll lead daily yoga classes outside (weather permitting) at your historic villa.
On arrival, you'll be met at Pisa Airport and then driven by private transfer to one of the beautiful Flavours Holidays villas, which have outdoor pools and gorgeous grounds, full of almond and olive trees, for you to relax in. You'll be treated to healthy, home-cooked Italian food made by excellent local chefs and enjoy dinner at a trattoria in Siena on one evening, too. You'll also have spare time to explore the local area, with highlights including the Palazzo Pubblico and Siena Cathedral.
This is a great opportunity to improve your core strength and tone your body, as well as relax and make new friends in the Italian sun.
MEET THE TV STAR
You'll hear all about Aggie's varied career during a fascinating talk, with plenty of time to ask your burning questions. You'll hear more about her time on How Clean Is Your House? and Storage Hoarders and as the former head of the Good Housekeeping Institute.
LIVE LA DOLCE VITA
You'll be treated to healthy, home-cooked Italian meals throughout your stay. One evening you'll enjoy dinner at a trattoria and you'll even get to sample local wine during an afternoon of wine tasting.
