Pilates Holiday in Tuscany
Toned and trim – not how you imagine returning from an Italian holiday?
That’s one of the reasons our trips are so popular. It’s the perfect balance between healthiness and indulgence. With exercise classes and mouth-watering al fresco meals the emphasis is firmly on group fun. Whether you opt for the sun-drenched island of Sicily, the rolling countryside of Tuscany, or Puglia as the backdrop for your Pilates holiday, you’ll get a real taste of la dolce vita.
“The lessons were great – they were targeted at our level of ability but also challenged us! The one on one session was fantastic. It was great to have such an intensive course, and doing Pilates outside under a Tuscan sun was always going to make it extra special! Being so active meant I didn’t feel too bad about eating all the wonderful food!”

Dates available on request
Tuscany is quintessential Italy: a dreamscape of rolling hills topped with willowy cypress trees, shimmering olive groves and rows of tangled vines, peppered with picture-perfect medieval hilltop towns. This rich, rural landscape provides all the ingredients for our chefs as they show how to rustle up mouth-watering local dishes. For a break from your classes, you can also explore the charming alleys of medieval Siena, Arezzo and Florence.
Our friendly transfer will meet you at Pisa Airport and take you to the villa for welcome drinks.
We have a handful of lovely villas to choose from. They all have private pools, ensuite rooms and that essential soporific hum of cicadas as you relax with a bottle of wine under the trees.
