Our Couples Retreats are built around the four pillars of love, laughter, reflection, and curiosity that support  a renewed sense of connection. Let the sunsets over the Tuscan hills be the backdrop to your love story. 

The Tuscany Experience

When we traveled to Italy for pre-retreat site visits, we were amazed by the region’s culture, cuisine, and beauty – even in winter.

In October, the vineyards will be fragrant with ripe grapes. The weather will be perfect for strolls through ancient oaks and olives. And our meals will include the freshest local foods.

Our team is planning the perfect mix of learning, exploration, and relaxation. We’ll handle all of the arrangements so that you and your partner can focus on each other.

Our Venue

Borgo Scopeto Wine & Country Relais is an elegant five-star hotel just 15 km from Siena. An enchanting driveway of cypresses leads to the estate. Rooms are warm and welcoming with every modern comfort. Each has unique character that reflects the architecture and history of the fourteenth-century villa.

The Telegraph says, “This stylishly converted historic hamlet in the depths of southern Chianti offers all the mod-cons of a classy relais. It’s set in lush grounds and boasts a fine restaurant, swimming pools, tennis courts, a spa, and five-star views across the hills to the domes and spires of Siena.”

“Travel brings power and love back to your life.”
