Stupendous Sicily. SOLE YOGA HOLIDAYS is so excited for our very first yoga vacation in this magical and stunning location off the Southern Coast of Italy, Sept 24-29, 2016. Sicily is not just Italian but a unique and historical mix of Greek, Roman, Arab and Norman. This lavish and wonderful blend of cultures can be seen not only in the gorgeous architecture and landscapes, but tasted in some of the best cuisine in the world. (We can't wait to get our hands on the cannoli!)
Sole Yoga Holidays has chosen the town of Cefalù on the northern coast of Sicily for our marvelous holiday. Cefalù is most noted for its beautiful sandy beaches, a picturesque historical town on a rocky headland, indescribable Sicilian cuisine and endless days of warm sunshine.
ACCOMMODATIONS & FOOD
We found the most adorable seaside hotel, Kalura nestled in a splendid bay, between the Rocca of Cefalù, the port and the sparkling sea. The swimming pool, private beach and bathing platform can all be found on the hotel's beautiful and manicured grounds. The rooms are modern, yet in Mediterranean style with all of the comforts that you need. Some have divine seaside views from a terrace or balcony. All rooms have bath en-suite, a mini bar, safe, hair dryer, air conditioning and Wi-Fi. We have a few options for pricing based on room sizing and views.Each morning after yoga we can indulge in a traditional Sicilian breakfast. Served buffet style there are heavenly sweets and savory delights for everyone. We will have two very special dinners and of course desserts are mandatory!Two lunches are included during our special week. We will explore the historical town and then have a picnic lunch. We also will try our hands at some traditional Sicilian cooking and then taste our magical creations! During the other meal times, you can relax and order local delicacies at our wonderful hotel or take the short walk or free shuttle into town and explore the markets and delicious local cuisine.
