Why This Risqué Tuscan Retreat Was Named One Of 2021’s Top Travel Experiences

Run for the hills...

The likes of Australia and New Zealand may have been a little tricky to get to for European residents in 2021, but there was still plenty to do closer to home, for Those In That Latitude.

EasyJet Traveller Magazine released its list of the 10 most incredible travel experiences for 2021 earlier this year. There were a few cool canaries among them (from cow cuddling in the Netherlands to a wild swimming experience in Slovenia).

The most iconic summer pick of the lot, however, was an Italian hideaway slated to be a big hit in 2021: Naked the Retreat. According to Woman & Home the place’s burgeoning success comes amid a greater trend.

“Not only are nudist beaches and nudist holidays more popular than ever, but this retreat offers a way to get in touch with your emotions and feel liberated while ditching the constraints of clothing.”

Brainchild of Simon and Dara Stara, the Tuscan retreat aims to foster body positivity and self-liberation, promising to “reboot… your greatness” via “a dance with darkness, anger, and dirt.”

“Dive into the depth of you. Strip yourself bare, take off what you don’t need. Let go and liberate.”

Whether that sentiment has you running for the Tuscan (or figurative) Hills is up to you.

The retreat is home to a “charming and exclusive villa” that hosted the place’s last magnificent experience. This involved: “10 days… fully packed with transformative practices, liberating movement, communication exercises and exploration of touch and connection.”

Those thinking of attending (there are currently no events scheduled due to COVID) are encouraged to “be prepared to deeply immerse yourself, be challenged and liberated in a safe space.”
