Villa Rivo & Yoga Retreat
Set among rolling hills and lush fields in the enchanting Italian region of Le Marche, Villa Rivo is an idyllic place to enjoy a vacation with family or friends, relaxing, reconnecting and experiencing the beauty of living in the Italian countryside.
The property and surrounding areas offer up an expansive choice of indelible experiences and it is an ideal destination for bikers & hikers, yogis & foodies, culture buffs & Italian shoe lovers and especially for diverse groups or families who love a little of all of the above.
Located 20 minutes from the Adriatic Coast and walking distance from the picturesque hilltop village of Montottone. Designed by Canadian architects James Macgillivray & Vivian Lee (LAMAS), the house sleeps up to 10 people in 4 bedrooms, all featuring large en-suite bathrooms and outdoor private seating areas.
The house features a large yoga room overlooking rolling fields, as well as an expansive living & dining area, with a semi-professional grade kitchen and plenty of indoor and outdoor eating and relaxation areas, including a 15 x 4 meter salt-water swimming pool.
The design combines Italian craftsmanship with the owner’s interest and love for Asian art and design, built over their 20 years of living and traveling in Asia.
Every season has its own charms & reasons for coming to visit: biking through the lush rolling fields of spring, enjoying the village festival filled heights of summer; plucking fresh figs from the trees in autumn, exploring magical snow covered medieval hill-top villages in winter.
Visiting is an opportunity to slow down and enjoy the simple pleasures of Italian country-side life.

The Yoga Shala
The house features a 45 sq.m wood floor yoga shala that comfortably fits up to 12 people and opens onto a large terrace, so you can easily move your yoga practice outdoor where you are blessed with a beautiful panorama of gentle rolling hills.
The room faces east and gets basked in natural light at sunrise and it is a magical way to start your day. In the evening the room is bathed in a soft amber glow provided by glass blown sconces manufactured by the artisans at Gabbiani in Venice.
The yoga shala comes equipped with Manduka Pro mats and all the props.
