A life in harmony with nature is priority to us. This is why we collaborate with local structures who align to our values of eco-conscious and sustainable living. This means for example consumption of local and seasonal products, reduction of waste, collaboration with local persons and businesses and support of local farmers. For our retreats we have developed a sustainability concept (soon available on our website) to ensure transparency, share knowledge and raise awareness for this important topic amongst participants. Living up to our values on short experiences like a 1-week retreat is challenging and we encourage you to help us improve our concept to become more sustainable.
We encourage sustainable travel and offer an individual surprise reward* to those arriving by train from their previous location. The closest train station is Diano San Pietro (4 km). The closest airports are Nice and Genova (each 100 km). We can assist with transfer from the train station and airports.

The Ligurian riviera is known for its mild and consistent climate. Temperatures in the region in October vary between 15 – 25 C with little rain. We recommend to pack a bit of everything 🙂 (incl. a sweater and a jacket for the evening hours)
We offer apartments for both, shared and single use. You can express your preference to share an apartment and we will try to match you with another suitable participant who is open to sharing, too.
You can get the full value out of the experience without any additional costs. Everything listed under “What’s included” is covered. There will be optional activities by external parties offered in addition, that you pay extra, if you chose to participate.
Absolutely not. Everything that is offered is an invitation. We are giving options and impulses to provide the best value possible, but you choose what serves you best. We also encourage every participant to co-create the experience with us and e.g. offer something they like to share with the group in the creative community offerings sessions or come together for individual 1:1 sessions. This way, the experience will naturally align to the groups talents and we can make use of our full potential.
Vegetarian and vegan food will be provided for everyone. As we are a small group we can consider special dietary restrictions and allergies. A chef will be on-site for the complete week to manage the meal plan and organise the kitchen. Breakfasts are self-organized, lunches will be prepared by our chef to give us more space for co-working, workshops and other activities during the day. For dinner, we will organize ourselves into small cooking teams and use the common kitchen to prepare meals together with our chef. We believe, one of the beautiful bonding experiences of coliving is preparing meals and eating together, a great chance to learn and try out new recipes and get creative together.
