The Meadowsweet Retreat Property
You will spend your time at the beautiful estate of Castello di Fosini. Once a thriving crop-sharing village centred around a castle, Fosini oozes with character
and old Italian heritage. During the retreat, you will stay in tastefully restored farmhouses, cottages and
luxury bell tents in the meadows. The design allows the luminous energy of nature to blend seamlessly with the spacious interior landscape of calming green and soft
natural hues, a stone-carved fireplace and creamy stone floors throughout. The rose-scented garden gazing over an untouched valley provides many places in
which to unwind and reflect, be it sipping morning tea on the wisteria patio or sprawling on a luxurious daybed tucked away under a tree. During free time guests can lounge by the saltwater infinity pool, share stories
around the fire pit, bathe in natural springs, read a book in the apple orchard, practice yoga on the oak tree deck, explore the vineyards, hike to a waterfall or
discover panoramic viewpoints. This is a paradise that's difficult to leave.
