Foodie retreats

Foodie retreats enable you to take pleasure, taste and imbibe in all the good things in life – from organic vegetables and locally farmed eggs to the finest of the region’s wines. The retreats we’ve reviewed in this section take their sensory delights seriously – their meals are big on presentation and flavour. They’re robust and delicious, yet they’re healthy and nutritious. You might want to go foraging and catch your own dinner while you learn about photography in Scotland, enjoy freshly squeezed lemon juice from the trees in Greece or soak up the delights of Italian food and culture on a yoga holiday in Tuscany. And if groaning breakfast tables with every kind of home-baked bread and four-course dinners aren’t for you, our retreats have healthy spa cuisine and wellness menus, many featuring the Mediterranean or a healthy Asian-inspired diet. Your foodie retreat experience can be as formal or informal as you like – dress up and be a gourmand on sumptuous Italian fare, or lounge in your robe in a relaxed brasserie. Many retreats grow, cultivate and harvest their own produce so you know what you’re eating is top quality gourmet fodder. And they’ll tell you the best places to try locally too!
