Dear Friend,

Nestled in the foothills of the Italian Alps, overlooking majestic lake Orta, lies the Mandali Retreat Centre.

Over the past few years, it has been our absolute pleasure to host a series of exceptional weeks for families, friends, friends of friends and the odd star child, minstrel and traveller who enters our gates.

During this time,and in this space, our mission has been to celebrate life to the fullest.

We do this by way of music & dance, dips in a magical waterfall, delicious meals, journeys through the labyrinth of our inner world, somatic movement, sacred rituals, stories by the fire, pampering at the spa and more.

Our children run free throughout the extensive grounds, finding unicorns, fighting dragons, playing hide and seek and attending a host of carefully curated activities.

Perhaps you are a returning guest, or perhaps divine providence has intervened to deliver this little invitation to you. Either way, we look forward to warmly welcoming you to Monte Mandali, an intimate gathering for both old & new friends.

In love,

The Mandali Family

Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go out and do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.
