Maybe it’s our dreamy accommodation that makes a Singing Retreat so memorable. Or perhaps it’s just sipping that seemly tastier Gin and Tonic while watching the sunset over ancient Pugliese olive groves. Whatever it is, there’s a certain kind of magic that springs out from its fertile ground – something that comes from the music, the location, from the food and possibly from Italy itself.
This Singing Retreat has all the ingredients to be a delicious dish, but what makes it taste so unforgettable is the warmth and intimate connection between a group of friends who just LOVE to sing.
This is a seven-night Singing Retreat in the Heel of Italy staying in unique and luxury private accommodation. You’ll experience group morning yoga as the sun rises over a thousand olive trees and eat the healthiest and most delicious food Italy can muster from its already packed and scrumptious pantry.
4-hours of group singing each day, as well as one-to-one singing and Yoga sessions, will be the mainstay of our week in the sun. We’ll be opening up our voices, learning new techniques – both as individuals and as a group – and discovering the joy of singing with confidence within a safe and nurturing group of like-minded people.

Trulli Andrea #1
Private and luxurious
Outside: Trulli Andrea sits on a hilltop at the centre of a 2.5-hectare olive estate. This lofty position affords guests not only sweeping 360-degree vistas of the Valle d’Itria’s wooded hills but total privacy too. The houses are set among a broad expanse of manicured lawns, which are criss-crossed by paths, peppered with olive trees and delimited by large areas of stone-flagged terraces. But Trulli Andrea’s genuinely unique feature is its mirrored sets of outdoor amenities. Each house has a splendid pool (one of which has an infinity edge and a Jacuzzi corner), a comfortably furnished sitting area and a dreamy al fresco dining area.
Inside: accommodation at Trulli Andrea is spread over two immaculately restored sets of Trulli. Both have a light, and airy feel and both are furnished with considerable style and attention to detail. The main entrance of the first set of Trulli takes you into a large dining area with vaulted stone ceilings and a beautiful large dining table. Two wide arches lead from this space to the excellent kitchen which overlooks the pool area, a series of sitting areas furnished with design pieces and comfy sofas.
The first double bedroom, which has views of the pool, is accessed via a corridor leading from the study, while the other two bedrooms, a double and a double/twin are found on the other side of the dining area. All three bedrooms have beautifully finished en-suite shower rooms, and the double/twin has its access to the surrounding terraces.
The second set of Trulli, situated about 40 m from the first, is very similar in style and layout. The main entrance takes you into an ample open-plan area, which includes a dining area with table seating for 10, two well-articulated living areas, one with a designer fireplace, and a smaller one with a pair of deep sofas. A short corridor leads from this area to the sleeping quarters which comprise a double master suite with en-suite shower, a second double bedroom, also with en-suite shower room, and a double/twin bedroom, whose shower room is accessed from near the dining room.
