Gastronomic Retreats

Voyage of Mediterranean taste

Why Gastronomic Retreats?

Embark on a unique journey inspired by Savina's profound passion for good food, meaningful connections, and the vibrant culture found within Mediterranean regions.

The concept of these exclusive retreats emerged during a transformative chapter in Savina's life—a period of profound self-discovery. Reflecting on her deepest passions, Savina recognized her love for ritual dining, where every bite nourishes all the senses. Yet, she discerned a missing element—the human touch. It is the people behind the cuisine who infuse it with vibrancy and authenticity, elevating it to extraordinary heights.

What Inspires Savina'S?

Her inspiration comes from the individuals she has encountered on her journey, each with a unique story. Arthur, a pastry chef for over seven decades, where the baking remains forever in his heart; Alberto, who answered the call of the olives, leaving a career in cinema behind; Jenny and Lorenzo, who exchanged the bustling streets of Milan for the serenity of managing a villa in Tuscany. These stories, coupled with the deep-rooted traditions of Mediterranean cuisine, form the basics of Savina's gastronomic retreats.
