Returning due to its success in 2022 and by popular demand. Celebrate the rich splendour of spring, embraced by UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Amalfi Coast’s welcoming Mediterranean sunshine and distinguished natural beauty on the Reconnection at Amalfi Cliffside Retreat this May.
This limited edition Balance Holidays retreat provides the freedom of time to step out of the daily pace for slower and quieter moments to reset the focus on the self. Present and connected to the charms of the land and like-minded individuals through a medley of outdoor excursions that reveal stories of Amalfi from passing centuries, gentle, mindfulness workshops and more.

A Specially Curated Itinerary of Guided Mountain Excursions -
Come face-to-face with the majesty of nature and cultivate deep ties with the land, winding along a dynamic circuit of renowned and lesser-traversed trails beneath the pristine coastal air. Designed together with experienced local hiking experts, each path will grant an intimate and insightful introduction to Amalfi’s time-honoured heritage. From retracing routes once marked by spice, grain and textile merchants, to paths leading to prominent Greek and Roman ancient sites, trickling waterfalls, terraces of sweet-scented lemon groves and quaint rural villages. Heart-stopping panoramas composed of soaring cliffs, magnificent Mediterranean mountains and sapphire blue waters await eager explorers at each peak.
*Please note, you will be accompanied by dedicated hiking guides at all times and the difficulty level of the trails will increase moderately each day.
Pause Place Consciousness-Based Workshops -
Balance Holidays welcomes Katie Abbott as the leading expert on this programme. Identified for her work in activating the energies of love, essence of presence and connection to step inside, find clarity in the self and recognise your inner potential. Deepen and expand your true being, shifting states of consciousness in an array of workshops that bring breathwork, sound, gentle movement and more together.
Sensitively integrated on a cliff, cocooned by 4-hectares of land covered by aromatic olive, lemon, elm and citrus trees, a vegetable garden, pine woods and vibrant native blooms. La Torre della Limonaia and its upclose panoramas of the Amalfi Coast will be privately reserved for this retreat. Showcasing decades-old Italian splendour and comfort, the villa is an exclusive representation of life from another age, carefully preserved to pay homage to a bygone era.

Enzo BarbaBorn in Positano, with a strong fondness for the place where he was born and nature, Enzo enjoys engaging in outdoor activities such as trekking, trail running and free-climbing. Beyond his own passions for spending time in nature, he believes that sharing his knowledge and experience of these outdoor activities and the land itself further lends new meaning and impact to those who take to the trails with me.
Commanding views of a never-ending expanse of the vivid Tyrrhenian Sea, that gazes up at the sky, before disappearing together into the horizon. The rooms at La Torre della Limonaia swirl in the fragrance of ancient lemon and elm trees, seamlessly merging indoor and outdoor.
