When you can't travel to Italy...
Mind Less and let me bring Italy to you!
We can't get to Italy for a Lane Change Escape so Italy is coming to us.
I've been asked for years to do something closer to home and here it is! A positive outcome from our travel restrictions.
Join me at Pearl Beach for an indulgent few days of pizza, pasta, Aperol, prosecco, yoga, massages, beach time, bush walks and even learn to cook authentic Italian food and taste a special selection of Italian wines.
"The villa and the surrounding area were beautiful and peaceful. What a great way to unwind, exercise and meet like-minded people! Tory obviously loves hosting the escapes and is passionate about yoga & travel. She's so refreshing to be around!" Jackie, USA
Morning yoga session to the sounds of nature and serenity of the National Park
Long and lazy terrace breakfasts.
Surrender to the tranquillity and sweetness of nature as you drop your bags down and check-in to Treetop Lodge. You'll feel stress fade almost instantly as you hear the ocean in the distant.
This first night will greet you with a relaxed and casual welcome dinner accompanied by Italian beverages and entertainment and plenty of conversation and laughter as we take time getting to know each other.
Following yoga and a long, lazy breakfast what could be better than an hour-long massage? We will kick start the weekend by shedding any tension and stress from our bodies that plays no part on a Lane Change Escape.
A few guests will have the option to enjoy their one-on-one private yoga session with Tory, or take time exploring the beautiful surrounds of Pearl Beach, perhaps even cleansing more with a swim in the ocean.
In the evening we will dine at Osteria Il Coccia, feasting on a 5 course Italian dinner, accompanied by matching wines.
Today, if the weather gods are shining upon us, we will take a hike through the gorgeous National Park over to Patonga. If you’ve worked up a thirst there will be the option to have a drink and/or lunch at The Boat Shed before we hit the track back to Pearl Beach.
Remaining private on-on-one yoga sessions will take place before we head out early evening for an informal, traditional Tuscan dinner at Il Toscano. The owners are dear friends and will be sure to give us the VIP treatment.
After breakfast you will have free-time to do as you please, which might include a short hike from Pearl Beach to Umina or some time relaxing on Pearl Beach or simply chilling on the deck reading a book.
Mid-afternoon, Matteo from Il Toscano will join us for a wonderful and entertaining cooking experience. It will be messy and fun and will be accompanied by an informal Italian wine tasting. What better way to end a fabulous few days.
Lots of hugs and laughter shared as contact details are swapped while we feast on our final breakfast together before we checkout and be on our way.
