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.
Based on two sharing a twin or double room.

Nurtured and taken care of
Témi and Alex organize and run every Singing Holidays event. Unlike most holiday companies, we’re with you from first contact right through to our sad farewells at the end of your stay. There are no reps, no faceless office staff, no strangers picking you up from an airport. Just us.
Food and accommodation
Témi and Alex spend weeks recceing each holiday, so you can get the very best from your stay. Nothing is by chance — we check every restaurant, we eat every menu, we jump on every bed, we take a toothbrush and magnifying glass to every bathroom, skirting board and wardrobe. When you arrive, you can relax in the knowledge that we’ve well and truly done our homework.
From first encounter to said farewells at the end of your holiday, you’ll be in direct contact with either Alex or Témi. Singing Holidays has been running events in Italy and beyond since 2010, and one of our core values is to also keep things small and contained, so we can give you the best experience.
Insurance & data protection
Booking a holiday during a pandemic isn’t for the faint-hearted. However, if you book a Singing Holidays event, and then you are unable to travel due to mandatory country restrictions, then you will be eligible for a full refund (including any ‘non-refundable’ deposit payment).
