We will be staying at a unique Inn nestled in the beautiful Canavese countryside. The building was originally a working mill and was completely renovated and restored by the grandchildren of the last miller. The original architectural elements were preserved, allowing guests to relax and immerse themselves in the atmosphere of old Italy.

It offers elegant rooms in rustic style, all with private bathrooms and satellite TV. The entire Inn is reserved for our group. On the first floor of the mill room there is a pleasant covered terrace with comfortable sofas, where you can take a refreshing break next to the river that flows close by.



The trip includes daily breakfast, some lunches and dinners. Each day will begin with cappuccino, tea, juices and a delicious homemade savory breakfast at the Inn. Our three day tour of Damanhur includes lunch with our Damanhurian guide in the communities that we visit. We will provide a light snack with finger foods at the Inn upon arrival Sunday and two amazing farm fresh dinners - one is at the Damanhur agricultural center and the other a dinner made by gourmet chefs with native wild ingredients that we foraged while in Fondo. here are also many delicious local restaurants that we will explore!



All transportation is included for your adventure. You will be chauffeured in comfort to and from the Milan airport and all the retreat activities with private tour vans and a car. One driver is EMT certified.
We recommend taking an overnight non-stop flight to Milan which will bring you to Italy on the morning of Sunday, July 19.
