What our customers and the press said

“What beautiful memories …
I am missing the view, the fabulous food (especially the quinoa porridge and ginger tea) the yoga which has definitely improved my well being (thank you Marina) and above all the wonderful company and extra special trips to the beautiful beaches. Thank you Carmen and everyone who helped to make it a very special holiday.” Christine Summers, London

“It was a great time at Urania villas – Carmen, thank you very much once again for your efforts and for always willing to take an extra step. I will definitely keep very warm memories of that week, especially long, lazy and absolutely delicious breakfasts we enjoyed on a terrace with breathtaking views after our morning yoga practice, accompanied by an excellent selection of music and in a certainly very good company. And also many thanks to Marina, who managed to make our still quite challenging yoga practices enjoyable and painless.” Natalia B., London

“I truly had the most amazing time and quite possibly one of the best weeks of my life. I came back a different person, with a sense of peace and calm and motivation to keep my lifestyle stress free! I haven’t felt this happy, ever!” Victoria Rodgers


“I had high expectations and throughout the whole week, everything I had hoped for was exceeded. I had the most wonderful time, in fact, it was quite life changing for me. Firstly, it was so much fun, and the people that were there were amazing. Secondly, it really helped my mind body and soul. The location was incredible, the therapists world class and the yoga instructor really made me fall in love with Yoga. I would go on another Divine Retreat in a second! It was simply fantastic!”
Anna Rodgers

“The choice of venue is what sets Divine Retreats apart from others.
Luxurious and homely hospitality with truly fascinating history.”
Yanar Alkayat

“Wonderful to do yoga in such a lovely place. The classes were tailored to suit everybody’s ability whether they were a beginner or have been doing yoga for years. The relaxed timetable allowed plenty of free time to swim in the pool, read or cycle arund the walls of nearby Lucca. The welcome was warm and the location peaceful with fabulous views. We laughed a lot and came home feeling refreshed and regenerated.”
Helen Dunford

“The week was very well organised and the location, the hospitality, the food, the scope of the programme and the general experience exceeded my expectations by miles! I could not have dreamed of such an incredible holiday and I feel very privileged to have had the opportunity to be there and spend time with a group of such wonderful people. The yoga and massage were absolutely excellent. Thank you for creating such an incredible experience!” Tansy Sibley
