The overnight stays of the Wing Retreat in Italy take place in single or double rooms in the family-run Hotel Paola on a hill near the town of Carloforte on St.Pietro.

St. Pietro – the territory:

Enjoy the magic of taking off on one of Italy’s most unspoilt islands!

We’ve teamed up with the experienced crew at SUP Adventures Italy to bring you as close to their beautiful home base as only locals can.

The island is small but nice and offers one thing above all, from sandy beaches to volcanic rocks – pure nature!

On the west coast you can enjoy wingfoiling with only the horizon in front of you. Because we are at the westernmost point of Italy . There is nothing between us and the coast around Gibraltar.

The water is a little fresher in May, but the whole island is in bloom and shines in lush green. The water is so clear that you can see down to a depth of 14 meters and alternates between turquoise and dark blue.

The wind varies between Mistral and Scirocco, depending on which we will choose the spot to give you perfect conditions.

The island is characterized by fishing and the Ligurian influences, which have also influenced the architecture, cuisine and dialect.

Holidays in Italy are peppered with many wing adventures on the Mediterranean

The week under the Italian sun offers:
  • Sport, fun, relaxation, adventure, nature and social evenings with very good food and drinks
  • group activities
  • beach time
  • Super delicious regional food
  • Opportunity to improve your board fitness and wing technique
  • Fun on board and on land
  • Yoga sessions on land and on the water
  • E-bike trip across the island (organized alone on the day off)

Best of all: the equipment: the wings and boards are already waiting for you on the beach, so all you have to do is put one leash on your foot and the other on your wrist and you can start having fun on the water. The trainings are all instructed and two guides accompany the group on the water.

If you want, you can start the day with a yoga sequence overlooking the sea in the morning before breakfast. For relaxation and to really unwind, a day off is scheduled in the middle of the week, on which an e-bike is available for exploration or the way to the beach.

During the yoga classes you can enjoy time for yourself, let your eyes wander and listen to the tranquility of the place. We practice listening to our body and perceiving it. After the first paddling days we will notice the shoulders from paddling and counteract sore muscles with stretch exercises, gain inner peace through breathing exercises and gather new strength in relaxation poses.

We look forward to bringing you closer to this little gem in Italy , taking you to hidden grottos, letting the sun burn on your stomach with you on the beach, jumping into the crystal-clear water, toasting together in the evening and much more!
